Pink and Navy

Today's outfit is once again inspired by none other than my favorite retailer, J.Crew. I've been seeing a lot of intertwined pearl necklaces and wanted something similar. I looked through my ever-growing stash of costume jewelry and figured I could try creating my own. I took a long multi-layered necklace, knotted the longer ends, then wrapped them up and around the shorter ones, twisting as I went. The result? A shorter, messily wrapped necklace that felt at home with my distressed jeans.
jeans: Hollister boot destroyed (sold here; similar)

  3. I love your take on the layers+blazer look. That pink gingham makes the whole thing really pop. :)

  4. Aww...you got the Theory Bindi in navy! I'm regretting not picking that color up when the blazer was around. Now I'm looking for a nice navy blazer and can't find any in that same fitted shape. Love that color combo!

  5. So cute!!

    I was in J. Crew today and thought of you...I tried on a hot pink v-neck. Did not get it...went for black and navy! :p I will keep an eye out for a sale, though! :)

  7. Blazer fits so well on you! Great idea on the necklace altho I would probably have a difficult time unknotting mine.

  10. I went to an event for J Crew last week and let's just say that the necklaces were killer. I constantly draw inspiration from their catlogue. They had stacked all kinds of crazy necklaces together with great results. Which I will try to replicate this week!!

  17. Thanks everyone for your kind words :)

    @Alterations Needed - So sorry to hear you're looking for this blazer. This is my one and only theory blazer and I can't believe I was thinking of passing it up when I saw it at the outlets awhile back. Good thing my cousin talked me out of it, haha. I'll keep my eyes out for any slim fitting navy blazers :)

    @Michelle - Neon pink? The color is surprisingly versatile, imo (if you need any enabling) ;)

    @Carrie - Oh man, I'm still a camera n00b. If the pictures turn out decent, it's a combination of luck + right lighting :D

    @Canadianpetite - Haha, I did have to be careful when untangling the strands. So far no problems though *knocks on wood*

    @SewPetiteGal - Have you seen prepfection?! Oh my god, I went through every.single.page over the weekend and it reminded me why preppy styles will always be my one true love, lol!

    @Noelani - Can't wait to see! I heart J.Crew catalogs.

  20. Seriously...I sometimes think you do J Crew better than J Crew does J Crew. I love the gingham shirt/distressed jeans paired with the blazer and pearls. Such a perfect mix of casual and classy :)
