Statement Necklaces and Stripes

Top: Shade Clothing (similar #1, similar #2)  |  Cardigan: Target (similar)  |  Jeans: Old Navy (similar)  |  Necklace: c/o Bubble Necklace Co. (shop)  |  Belt: H&M  |  Tote: ebags.com (shop)

Oh man, you guys.  It's been a very full week, with both good things to celebrate and sad news to be bummed about.  I haven't posted much because I've basically worn Target v-neck tees and shorts all week, topping it off with this necklace from Bubble Necklace Co.  I know these J.Crew-inspired necklaces are all over blogs right now, but what was more appealing to me was the fact that I could have a smattering of yellow sprawled out all over me, because like I've said before, I'm a little obsessed with yellow.  And I love how huge this necklace is because it easily and quickly gave character to all the plain tees I wore this week.  It doesn't get much simpler than that.

In case you thought I was brave enough to wear a white tee with white jeans, I hate to disappoint you, but this tee is peach.

  2. I found your "build a remixable wardrobe" series through Pinterest and I have to say, you're my new favorite blogger. Even though I'm a fashion blogger myself (kindof...) I really found your tips to be helpful! Some things seem so obvious once someone points them out, and yet no one takes the time to explain these simple basics that can be so essential. You're great!

  3. First off, I've been living in v-neck tees and rolled-up skinny jeans lately ; ) Second, I love your outfit and new necklace! The colors are fantastic together!

  4. I haven't quite figured out what all the fuss is about these necklaces, but I do admit that yellow adds the appropriate punch to this outfit.

  7. Sorry you had bad news, that's never fun.

    I bought a pajama dress at Target today ($17 clearance), and the same high low dress from your last post, but in the all over print. Would you wear the vest with that dress? I'm afraid the chiffon dresses won't look right with the army vest. I'm also still trying to decide which color of vest to keep... Or can I really get away with 2??

    Thanks again for the informative post, I look forward to them each day!

  15. Love it in yellow! I wear my turquoise one pretty much every day and love it so much that I don't even care that I'm unoriginal. It goes with EVERYTHING and makes tees so fancy. And your white jeans are great!

  16. I know, right?!? Because even if it's unoriginal, it works and makes it very easy to get dressed in the morning. And really, people who don't read style blogs still aren't familiar with these necklaces.

  25. there is nothing i love more than a bright nautical look - love this so much!

  26. Ha - good point. Most of the real life people I know won't realize I'm unoriginal compared to other people; they'll just think I'm unoriginal because I wear the same necklace every day. But it is SO easy to get dressed with, and I love it!

  27. Love the look and I would LOVE the necklace!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Love the color combo and I can't get enough of stripes!! Great outfit!

  29. Thank you for the easy ways to make my clothing look pulled together. I laughed when I read that you too have a go to uniform of target v-neck tees and shorts! They have some striped ones now that change up the look! :)

  30. I love the bubble necklace! I visited the store's website and really like the blue necklace, but yellow is the runner-up. Thanks for showing great ideas!
