If you know me, you know that I live and breathe Downton Abbey. The show, whose third season premieres on PBS January 6th, has become famous for its clever scripts, heart-wrenching plots, talented cast, and of course, gorgeous fashion. In this upcoming season, we'll see the Crawley family take on a new decade: the 1920's. In anticipation of the upcoming third season, an official companion book, The Chronicles of Downton Abbey, was released this month. Written by Jessica Fellowes, daughter of the show's creator and writer, Julian Fellowes, Chronicles is packed with insider photos, character bios, and hints of what's to come in season three!
My copy of Chronicles had been preordered since October, so when I was contacted about creating Downton inspired style guides for the blog, you can only imagine my excitement. A chance to combine my two favorite things: Downton and fashion! I poured over the pages when I was home over Thanksgiving break, and two accessories kept popping up across the pages: long necklaces, and jeweled headbands or hair pieces. Here are a few of my picks if you're looking to channel your inner Lady Mary just in time for the premiere! If you're too impatient, The Chronicles of Downton Abbey is sure to tide you over in the meantime.

I was not compensated for this post -- I just love Downton Abbey and the Chronicles of Downton Abbey!
