Cameo necklace

I love those Spring days when the sun comes out even though it's still pretty cold. It makes it feel as though nicer weather is on its way and I start looking forward to being able to wear my lighter weight dresses that don't come out during the winter. At the moment most days I'm still wrapped in a few layers (I love this oversized cardigan; it's so warm) but at least I'm able to start bringing more skirts and sheer stockings and tights into my outfits. This outfit ended up making me feel slightly librarian-esque in an Evie O'Connell kind of way, even though I don't really see that come across on the photos. I actually think the cardigan changes the whole look of it as I originally tried the outfit on without it. It was quite chilly taking the photos though so: cardigan. Although it ended up being so sunny that I am looking down in pretty much all the photos.

One thing I've been saying for ages that I must get better at doing is accessorising. I have a lot of lovely jewellery but a combination of my jewellery storage not really working for me, and laziness, means that I tend to stick to the same few items all the time and so some of my things just don't get the love they deserve. This cameo necklace is a new addition to my collection courtesy of Blue Banana and I'm definitely not letting this end up at the bottom of my jewellery box. For a start, it perfectly straddles my interests in both vintage and steampunk fashion and I will certainly be wearing it with both styles. But also, look what happens when you open it up:

How flipping cool is it that it's also a watch?! Pretty great if you ask me, and I do actually use it to tell the time when I'm wearing it so it's also super handy. I can't actually find it on the website at the moment so it's probably sold out, but you can find some other watches from Blue Banana here and if you like things a bit on the gothic side they also currently have this one which is on a necklace. If it's cameos you like, they also have this choker and a cuff, both of which are really affordable and I'm really tempted to pick them up.

Anyway, I like the nice long chain on the necklace though I have also been able to put it back through the loop to double it up so I can wear it with any outfits where the longer chain doesn't look right. I also *think* I can replace the battery when it goes, because I did once manage to get the back to pop off (though I haven't attempted to actually get the battery out).

If any of you have any ideas or tips etc for ways that I could store and display my jewellery, let me know. Currently I have a beautiful leather jewellery case that is so nice as a thing to have but means I am less likely to think of wearing certain items because I can't easily see them. If you have any pictures of your own storage set-ups please link me to them in the comments, I feel like that would be extra helpful. 

That's all from me for now, see you soon!
