Teal Tuesday: Running Out of Teal

I am only a few months into #TealTuesday and I have come to the realization that I just don't have enough #teal.  Tuesdays roll around and I try to remember when the last time was that I wore a certain shirt or sweater.  I scour the sale racks to find more teal to add to my wardrobe and sometimes try to pass off other colors as teal....

more like aqua blue...

 I show you another picture of my hands...

or feet...

 or cake...


But back to the topic at hand.  I've found a way to solve the lack of teal clothing by accessorizing and today I want to share my new FAVORITE teal accessory.  A while back I showed you the teal bling ring I bought from Holly at Expression Rings of Hope.  I've worn it to all kinds of occasions and I never get sick of that extra sparkle (and those little reflections on the roof of my car as I drive home from work).   

Well Holly's friend Jill saw my post and reached out to me about the awesome matching JILLry she has:

I noticed Jill's beautiful necklaces before as Jill and Holly often team up with matching rings and necklaces. Jill also donations a portion of her sales to charity. A portion of the awareness necklaces always gets donated to the specific charity they represent and she has a charity of the month for all the other sales.  That is incredibly generous and a lot to keep track of!  When I told her I would put her necklace on my wishlist, she offered to send me one as a gift!

I quickly picked out the Ovarian Cancer Awareness Necklace and was so excited when it came in the mail. 

(sorry for the terrible cellphone pictures)
The necklace very delicate looking, the perfect size to add some sparkle without overtaking my neck line.  I was also happy that it was long enough for my big old neck:

And that it matches fabulously with my bling ring

Thank you Jill for the awesome gift and for all you do to add some sparkle and awareness to so many great causes!

Disclaimer:  I was given the necklace by Jill as a gift. I am happy to write about it because I LOVE it.  All opinions are my own.
