Try-it-out (Wednesday): doubling up

    Classes are still keeping me busy, but one final project is completed, two more to go! :)
    T+J Designs is running a style challenge about statement jewelry, so I thought it'd be a fun idea for a belated Try-it-out post.
    I've mentioned my love of whimsical/cute tees before. A tee and jeans is the ultimate in comfortable and simple, but I decided to see whether this Jedidiah tee could be dressed up a little. Enter this Forever 21 pearl-and-chain necklace:
  I also added a light blue cardigan (previously loved by E.I.):
    (Click here for a good look at the tee shirt's design.)
    I'm not a fan of pastels, but I'm surprised at how much I like the soft blue and pink together.
    Pairing a printed tee with a bold necklace is a little out of my comfort zone, but I think the necklace and cardigan add polish to an otherwise basic outfit.

  2. I'm not generally huge on pastels either, but I agree these look great together!

  4. Two years ago I seem to have no idea what jewelry was. About a year ago I started opening myself up to buying pieces (fun cheap ones) and now I am totally on board for a bold statement piece to accent an outfit. Keep it up - I love the look, and before you know it, you'll be blinging it out, like it or not, because you'll love it! ;o)
