The Affair of the Necklace

I finally found an outfit for this necklace! I've been holding on to it ever since December, when I got it from my mom as a birthday gift. It's ironic, because I'd been lusting after it forever, claiming that if I ever did get my hands on it I'd wear with everything. Well, it's not been that easy! I've tried to wear it a few times but I never could find an outfit that worked - the size and shape of it is quite overwhelming even for a girl who loves statement necklaces! The combination of colors and proportion in this outfit finally seemed to hit the mark.

I've decided blazers don't photograph well for me, though. Okay, the real reason is that none of my mine fit properly, but the thought of getting them tailored intimidates me. This one is particularly bulky, and I don't really wear it much as a result, but it's such a pretty dusty purple that I can't get rid of it. (Or, you know, get it tailored.) I particularly loved the idea of it paired with the darker purple top underneath. And the layers of the two with the minty green beaded goodness of the necklace was perfection.

  1. I think is one of my favorite outfits you've posted to date! I absolutely love the combination of the different shades of mauve, and the mint necklace is just the perfect compliment! Gorgeous!

  2. That necklace is magical and I love all the ruffle detail on your blouse! You look gorgeous.

  3. You always look great, Miss Jessica. I love seeing the bigger statement necklace on you! I make a lot of statement necklaces in my business. You have a fearless sense of color and ability to effortlessly mix patterns and styles. I like that a lot. Thanks for sharing another great outfit! Enjoy the day.

  4. I love the color of that neckace! I'd wear it with a mustard yellow top and a skirt a few shades darker than the necklace.

  5. SO JEALOUS! Have wanted this necklace forever. It looks great on you!

  6. You look beautiful! I love the combination of the elegant purples along with the casual look of the jeans. The necklace is to die for. Where does it come from?  I have a hard time finding jackets that fit as well. It's always a struggle. I think you look great in this one. 


Thank you so much for commenting! Reading what you have to say truly makes my day!
