inspiration Monday: 3 brights

     Do you have names for favorite items of clothing? When my friend K gave me this yellow glass pendant, she referred to it as a "fish pendant." The Mr. calls these pants, which he abhors, my "'80s pants." I'll admit to having names for some of my favorite clothing items ...
The inspiration: Kristin Cavalleri

     I decided to take this elegantly simple striped tee and colored pants look in a new direction by introducing a red cardigan and yellow pendant. (I'll admit I was swayed by Katie's dazzling pairing of red with turquoise).

tee, J. Crew
Velvet Heart pants, Ross
J.J. Basics cardigan, hand-me-down
glass pendant and red beaded bracelet, gifted
Cutey "Hemera" charm bracelet, giveaway win from Bonjour Gazel
    
     I was thrilled to win this Cutey bracelet from Bonjour Gazel. I chose this one just because of the dangling key charm. I'm surprised at how well it fits -- it doesn't slide off my wrist like many bracelets do.
