Florida will always be the place I first visited the ocean. New York is the state my husband and I finally took our long over due honeymoon to. California holds so many priceless and unforgettable work memories for me. No matter where I travel to, or how much I fall in love with another state, Iowa will always have my heart. Born, raised, and probably never moving away is what I say. I truly love living in Iowa and whenever I do travel, I can keep home close to my heart with State Necklaces, like the one I recently received from Cents of Style for Fashion Friday!

The Hawkeye State where you know what has to be knee high by the 4th of July and everyone thinks you have a cow in your backyard. “Isn’t Iowa all cornfields?” is what most people ask when I tell them I’m from Iowa. Why yes, we have a lot of cornfields, but we also have beautiful parks for camping and inviting lakes for boating, and the Loess Hills for a breathtaking scenic backdrop. Iowa also has some of the nicest people I’ve encounter anywhere, and I don’t say that because I live here.
Another reason I love Iowa is the laid-back way of life. When I travel and experience rush-hour on the freeway in LA or bumper to bumper traffic full of cabs in Manhattan, I quickly feel the need to get back to the relaxed pace of life in Iowa. I love to travel and experience other places, but coming back home is so refreshing and welcoming.
Whatever your state story is, Cents of Styles’s State Necklaces can help you tell it. The State Bar Pendant Necklace is a new design in their incredibly popular state necklace line, a line that has been their most successful item of all time!
The State Bar Pendant Necklaces have gold chain and 2 metal bar pendants. One of the bars has the state name, and the other bar has my favorite part, the latitude and longitude of the state capital. There is something about the coordinates bar that is really cool, and it will remind me where my heart is every time I travel away from home. The other thing I love about these state necklaces are the 23″ long chain with 3″ extender. This way length can be adjusted depending on the neckline of the top I’m wearing.
No matter where we are going, or where we’ve been, there is a place that holds a special spot in our hearts. What’s your state story? Is there somewhere you visit every year to see family or friends? Do you have a dream vacation destination you are saving for?
