Brighter Than the Sun

I've been playing it safe when it came to this turquoise necklace. Only pairing it with neutrals, think: white, gray, black, and repeat. Well, I'm scared no more!

I initially wore the necklace underneath the sweater, in the exposed part of my neck. I thought a little bit of turquoise peeking out would look cute, but the necklace just didn't sit right. So outside it went. A much better result, if I may say so myself. I also liked how the necklace curves and drapes around the neckline of the sweater.

Note to self: must remember to wear this color combination again!

    1. I'll warn you ahead of time that the sandals will require a breaking-in period =/ The blistering at my heel hasn't healed yet. But they are oh-so-gorgeous that a little pain is worth it ;)
