Chic on the Cheap: State of Mind Necklace

Currently: Sitting on the couch in my pjs at one in the afternoon with a big mug of coffee and a snuggly puppy.  I'm unsure if I passed the bar, but I guess that goes into a lockbox in my brain until November when results come out! I'll get around to some things on my after bar checklist in an hour or so (cleaning, grocery shopping - how do I leave for three days and suddenly there is nothing in the fridge but beer, hard cider, and cheese?), but for now I'm not moving an inch. I often have a hard time being still and relaxing, but today I'm doing a damn good job. I'm currently perusing all the things I missed on the interwebs the past couple days, and I discovered something really exciting! Exciting to me anyway. 

I've been obsessed with Maya Brenner Jewelry for a long time. I love the delicate initial necklaces and I've been lusting after the state necklace (in MI of course) for over a year. 

However, the state necklace in gold is a whopping $395.00. So I figured I'd just continue to remain painfully separated from the object of my desire - until I discovered that dogeared jewelry has launched  a "State of Mind" line of necklaces

The dogeared take is smaller and more delicate than the MB necklace, which I actually like, because it can be an everyday piece. It's also much less expensive, the gold dipped runs $58.00, and the silver is $48.00.

Such a great alternative to the MB necklace (although I still love it). If you do decide to shop dogeared, you can use the coupon code "xoxo" to snag 10 dollars off at checkout! I also love this. And this. And this

P.S. If you like the state trend, Kris Nations also has a version that is on sale at Urban Outfitters for $29.00, they have a few states left.
