In the Château de Beloeil, nestled in the rural countryside of Wallonia, the thoughts that crossed my mind were not my own but the ones of the hypothetical version of myself living there two centuries ago. The whisper of ball dresses gliding over the stairs, the formal introductions, the soft glimmer of jewelry and the restrained, muted talking: my stolen memories were whimsically pleasant.
On the way back to our hotel though, I gathered that it was rather presumptuous to assume that say two hundred years ago I would have lived in the stately rooms of a prince’s mansion and not downstairs, among the servants or even in the hay of some farmer’s stable!
Anyway, the stunning statement necklace I’m wearing is a design by Happiness Boutique, an online store based in Berlin. With their artful jewellery and upliftingly simple philosophy (“don’t worry, be happy”) they embody the free spirit of the Berlin art and design scene. Be warned: picking a piece of their jewellery is a challenging task as there are so many fabulous pieces to choose from!
I paired my statement necklace with a simple outfit to avoid a scattered look. I picked this timeless, crisp white dress with off the shoulder design because I find that statement necklaces work best on bare skin. On the empty canvas of a minimalistic outfit, my necklace made its statement so well that my daydreams carried me more than twenty instead of two centuries away. All the way to Egypt…
