universal


Kensie top, Ross
trouser jeans, Macys
necklace, craft fair
earrings, gift


    This is a very simple outfit, but I decided to blog it because it was a triumph in terms of finding a patterned shirt to wear with this pendant. The delicate design of the pendant gets lost against other patterns, but I thought it went well with the irregular stripes and colors of this shirt.
    I bought this pendant at a craft fair, and the woman running the booth said that the design is symbolic of the universe - a geometric shape with a free form shape within. The contrast really appealed to me.
    I usually wear either a necklace or a pair of larger earrings, but not both. However, I rather liked the double dose of sparkle here. 
    Despite being sick last week, I managed to get off island for my aikido seminar. Lots of good practice, and I really enjoyed it! I had a little less pep on Sunday due to a sore back and sore quads from Saturday's classes, but I managed to practice for a full three classes. The best thing about Sunday, though, was coming home at about 10 at night, taking a long shower, then heading out for a steaming bowl of pho with the husband.

  2. Thank you, Ally! it's fun to take a piece of jewelry and "work backwards" to create an outfit that showcases it.

  3. Hope you're feeling better this week! You're right-- this top is the perfect balance of interesting but not too loud that the pendant gets lost in it.


    Hope you have a fab weekend! xo
