One Trend, Two Generations: Boho Necklaces

One Trend, Two Generations: Boho Necklaces

If you’ve been reading my blog for some time you may already be familiar with One Trend, Two Generations fashion posts. I started doing these posts them with my stepdaughter, Tori, three years ago as a way to show how two generations – me in my late 40’s and Tori who is 21 – style a chosen fashion trend. We’ve styled lots of trends over the years including stripes, ponchos, plaid, tunics, denim shorts and more!

We are back again wearing Boho Necklaces from mother and daughter team, Kay and Star. They make stylish necklaces and bracelets that are well-made, on-trend, versatile and priced right!

Julie of Kay and Star sent Tori and me two beautiful leather tassel necklaces in cognac and turquoise shades.

One Trend, Two Generations: Boho Necklaces

Tori starts us off with her look featuring a Boho necklace. She wore a black silky dress with thin straps which she layered over a long-sleeved black tee – her way of wearing a summery dress when it’s still chilly out.

Kay and Star Necklaces

Tall cognac boots with over-the-knee socks look darling look on her. She topped off her outfit with a black felt hat.

Tori is wearing the Long Earthy Agate Beaded Necklace with Agate Pendant and Leather Tassel. It’s made with 6mm neutral agate beads and is 34″ long. The agate pendant and leather tassel adds 6″.

For my look, I created a casual Boho outfit with my Kay and Star necklace. I started with a pair of Gap girlfriend jeans (similar)…

and a off-white Niki top by Lesley Evers made in the USA. It’s so soft and versatile. I know this will be my go-to top this spring and summer.

My necklace is the Long Turquoise and Jasper Beaded Necklace which has a large turquoise colored bead at the base that is 20mm round. The length of the beaded necklace is 34″ and the leather tassel adds 5″ to the overall length.

I wore a peep-toe bootie – the “it” bootie of the season (similar) – and a fringed cardigan that I bought last summer in San Diego (similar). I wanted to add some cognac to my look so I carried my 12-year-old Bayswater Bag by Mulberry.

This is a look I would wear just about anywhere!

Tori and I both chose to start with simple neutral looks, then added our Kay and Star Boho necklaces for a splash of color.

These necklaces make great gifts for friends and family – I’m thinking Mothers’ Day! I actually gave my mom the same necklace I am wearing. She told me the other day that she wears it almost daily.

      Hi April,

      How are you? I love my booties – bought them online (can’t remember where!) for about $50 two years ago. The brand is Crown…not a very popular brand. Have you heard if it?

    I always love your two generations posts! You both look amazing and the necklaces are beautiful! Peace! Cheryl

      Thank you, Cheryl! I wore my Gap wrap tie dress – the dark one – twice last week and thought of you. I wonder if you were wearing yours too? xo

    Yay! Another 1 Trend 2 Generations post. Always enjoy it when you do this. I love how you both decided upon neutral outfits that are at the opposite sides of the color spectrum but the outfits are in no way boring even though you’re wearing neutrals. Those necklaces are so fun and you’re right that they add just the perfect splash of color.

    What a cute photo shoot! And such proof that this necklace is so versatile and offer a perfect pop of color!

      Hi Lisa, Thank you for letting me know. What browser are you using? I tried it on Safari and Chrome and it worked for me. I do notice that the Shop photos take some time to load initially. Sorry you’re having this experience! The shop is brand new as of today so probably a little wonky right now. A
