Straight out of a J.Crew Ad

Wednesday, October 21, 2009
This is what happens when you browse two months' worth of J.Crew catalogs!! I've never even thought of layering these necklaces together. I tried to make them the focal point with a dark color outfit. I don't like wearing a lot of jewelry but this is definitely my fave ensemble.
modest lds fashion blog clothed much
Wearing thrifted blazer ($3), faux pearl necklace ($5), pink faux pearl necklace ($10), gold necklace ($5), AE turtleneck ($12), J Brand jeans ($158), brown shoes from Korea ($20).

....Aaaand I am wearing my thrifted boy's blazer again. I love it! Hopefully, the weather doesn't get cold too fast so I can find more ways to wear it.


Update: I just received a blog award from the lovely ladies at Reading for Sanity. Thank you so much!!!

  12. I love the layered necklaces! I was fully going to do that today with pearl necklaces (inspired by your last post) but changed my mind and wore a different necklace. I kind of wish I wore them now!

  23. awesome! because of you elaine, i wore layered pearls today to work! it doesn't look as chic as yours however because i couldn't get long strands in the mix. the last time i wore a long necklace (my owl pendant), i caught it on everything and needed to fix it once. i thought forget it, but i will be doing more of this outside of work. you look fab!

  37. I really like the necklace with the turtleneck. Im always afraid to jazz up a turtleneck with a necklace because I dont think I can pull it off. Looks great!
