Laced Layers

Look familiar? This outfit is, more or less, a reinvention of this one, made even better by an extra dash of green with the sandals. In fact, I had wanted to wear these green sandals with the first outfit, but I thought black peep toes made for a slightly dressier ensemble. I actually consider this outfit as the casual version of the first, but leave it to me to consider a ponte pencil skirt casual. Well, in my closet, it really is...

Okay, okay, there really isn't very much that's casual about this outfit, especially given the fact that a few people thought the outfit was a dress. Is it possible to even try to be casual with this necklace? Or with the sandals? Or with, you know, a skirt?

It was the backdrop of beige and blacks that dumped another idea for this fabulous necklace in my lap, though. I continue to experiment with textures and layers with this necklace, and the more there are, the more I seem to love the result.

    Holy smokes!  I have that very same necklace (in black, though).  It's a fab choice for this outfit.  

  2. you accessorized perfectly! love that sweet minty, robins egg blue necklace. it's just stunning. xo. 

  3. great blouse (i rarely look at loft these days, i would have guessed it was asos).  i like the black shoes, a bit more film noir.

  4. This is gorgeous!  Very sexy and very pretty :)

  5. Gorgeous outfit! Baublebar is selling this necklace, but I've been on the fence about buying because I wasn't sure how to style it. I'm inspired to purchase it now :) Here's a link in case anybody else wants it:

  6. Darn, I wish I would have saw this!! I purchased this necklace from Swell Caroline about a month ago for $55. I don't feel too bad because I love it :)
