Pink and Navy

by - Friday, November 11, 2011

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.

  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!

    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! :)

  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 :)
