February Freeze, vol. 8: things girls like

    I wore this necklace yesterday with a charcoal gray tee and jeans, and the necklace was a big hit with the first-graders I worked with after school. I had a few girls come up close and reach out to touch and admire the strands. The funny thing is, none of the girls said, "nice necklace" or anything like that. ... but those curious hands and eyes said it all. :)

    I was belatedly inspired by two birds' inspiration monday post featuring Drew Barrymore. I have an absurd affection for graphic tees, and add in jeans? Um, this is what I wear just about everyday. I liked how the addition of a statement necklace can bump this outfit up a notch, from "this is what was cleaned and ironed" to something slightly more intentional.

    I thought the different shades of blue would be harmonious, but the necklace kind of gets lost against the graphic tee, so next time I'd try it with a different shirt. I considered sneaking this in as a belated Try-it-out Tuesday post for this week, but since a tee and jeans is what I just about live in, I'll be posting a more challenging outfit this week. :)


  1. I love your inspiration pic! I agree with you to probably have a less busy t-shirt to go with your necklace! My friend has your exact same t-shirt :) Very whimsical :) This is def one of my everyday casual looks :)

  2. Thank you! Love that look, nice and casual

    A graphic tee and skinnies = perfection! Love the necklace too!
