Outfit Of The Yesterday: Coral, Take II

♫: One Love to Another – Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros

As most of you have probably noticed, aside from my YSL Arty’s, my wedding ring, and my engagement ring–I don’t wear a whole lotta expensive jewelry. I’ve always been a fan of digging around at places like Forever 21, Target, J Crew, Kendra Scott, Etsy and Ann Taylor for fun and trendy pieces, and I always seem to get the most compliments on those cheaper pieces, too–go figure.

But I  fell in love with this Sequin necklace when I first spied it in the “new arrivals” at Charm & Chain a few months ago, and after spending some time digging around for a cheaper alternative (and finding nothing!) and then accidentally bumping into Ms. Jean Shrimpton and her amazing beaded shift dress on Pinterest, that foxy-foxy lady:

Uff da. While the Sequin necklace is not going to break the bank, it is a little expensive for what I like to spend on costume jewelry–but oh so worth it. The necklace jingles a bit whenever I make a sudden movement, which totally freaks Kitty and Petunia out (do they think Santa is on his way to kidnap them?), and pairs just as well with casual sweaters as it does with dresses and fancier blouses. Love:

  • Jemima

  • I love your outfit.. as always!!

  • Candi

  • There’s something a little regal about that necklace on you — makes you look like an Egyptian princess!

    • Thanks Annabelle! *walks like an Egyptian*

    I can totally relate to wanting to get all your jewelry from places like F21.  Why spend  a lot of money on something you can find for so much less? But every now and then it’s a good idea to splurge a little on a beautiful piece.  Love this color on you btw!

    • Thanks so much, Meredith! I’m always afraid that if I splurge on jewelry, I’ll lose it–not sure expensive jewelry is meant for me and my scatter-brained ways!  Maybe someday. ♥

  • Dana’s Lookbook

    There is so many little details in this outfit that deserve a 2nd, 3rd, etc. look.  The sweetness of the lace with the sweet jingle of the necklace (you said), the lovely color of the top and shoes, the punch of ROAR from the clutch, the cute & playful glasses…. Just perfect perfection!  I love your shade of blonde by the way! 


    • Aw, thanks Dana! Your comment was darn near poetic. ♥

  • that necklace is gorgeous! my jcrew sweater came in the mail today! and it fits! hooray! =) but now i wish i would have got it in this color instead! ha ha. i am loving your blonde locks btw.

    • Thanks Jenn! I was eyeballing some older pics of myself with darker, redder hair and I definitely miss it, but had to go back to being blonde more over medical issues (it’s much easier to hide Lupus-hair-loss with blonde hair versus darker hair!). I’m glad you like it, I’m starting to like it a bit better too. :)

  • just-jillian

    perfect!!  love everything about this :)
    xoxo, jillian


    • Thanks Jillian. <3

  • Marina

    love everything about this! total perfection…

    • Thanks so much, Marina!

  • Oh the things I would do if I had your legs for one day…wait, that sounded really creepy!  Haha – anyway, love this outfit…think you’ve finally convinced me to pull the trigger on the J. Crew sweater in that color!! :)

    • Do it! It’s such a fun color–bright, but fun, and it’s made its little way right into heavy rotation in my closet.  And thank you about the legs–I know I won’t have them forever, so might as well use ’em right now, eh? <3
