All Choked Up

Hello friends!  Catchy title, huh?  It does sum up my life lately.  We dropped my oldest off for college last week and I have found myself getting choked up at the craziest times!  Ugh, the pit in my stomach, the teary eyes, who knew this would be so difficult!  But you didn’t come here to listen to all that.  Let’s talk fashion, shall we?

One of the trends this fall is the choker.  They are showing up all over and why not, I think they are the perfect compliment to either an off the shoulder or cold shoulder top.  Of course chokers aren’t limited to just those types of necklines.  Chokers are way more versatile than that!  Since my style leans waaaaaay in the Boho direction, throwing on a choker with just about anything adds the flavor I crave.

While on the hunt for a choker or two I stumbled across a few from Amazon.  Amazon Prime is one of my favorite ways to shop and I find myself time and again checking there in addition to my usual haunts. I chose to keep my choker budget low since I don’t anticipate wearing a choker every single day, nor do I expect to keep said chokers for years to come.  I also found inspiration in other blogs I follow, I was especially drawn to Tracy Hensel’s styling of the chokers.  Check out her blog, I love everything she has to say from fitness to fashion!

Take a look at how I styled the two chokers I recently purchased.  Would you wear a choker?



So, excuse these pictures.  They aren’t the greatest I know but I hope you get the point.  Chokers are versatile and an easy way to update your wardrobe!  That’s what’s in This Blonde’s Shopping Bag today!

Fashionably yours,
