Sorry. I still can't get over the layered pearls look! It's fun to rework them with different necklaces too. Except they keep swinging around and getting caught (ahem)...

I already said this on my twitter account but I feel like it should be said here on MY blog:  Please for the life of me STOP asking me to follow your blog. I'll follow it when I want to. It is really annoying when half of the comments I get are ones where you are asking me to follow you. Frankly, it makes me less inclined to read your blog or even get to know you.

  10. the pearls look FABULOUS. but, you do make a point about the swinging around and getting caught in them. i would find that annoying, too. too bad since they look so great.

  21. I love this simple and classy outfit.
    Looks like it's spring there already.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Nice layering! I have a few strands of real and faux pearls I've been given as gifts over the years and i never know how to wear them--this is some good inspiration.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I like the skinnies A LOT! I have a similar pair but I'm kind of intimidated to wear my skinnies with ballet flats. Ha. I'm not sure why. It does look great on you though ...maybe I'll give it a try.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Girl that is your color. The cut is so flattering too on the top. Love it!

    ReplyDelete
  26. That brick red/burgundy color looks fab on you. And you rock the skinnies!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Loving the layered pearls too! And the color of that top is divine on you - the puffed sleeves are adorable.

    ReplyDelete
  28. My long necklaces get ... caught, too. Annoying, ain't it? But the layered pearls are worth the annoyance!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I love layering pearls with other textures. My favourite is metal chains...rocker chic :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. not to be weird, but I just adore how your body looks in clothes! it's just gorgeous!

    Oh and follow me! wait, i am totally kidding. hehe. :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. i have to say, you definitely are the pearls kind of girl, the look really works for you. layering the pearls really modernizes the classic pearl look :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. i'm obsessed with the pearls! and also, that was so sweet of you to think of me with that part time job! your so stinkin cute, i seriously will look into it for sure:) i'm always needing motivation to regulate the blood sugars better...

    but elaine, i have a more serious question to ask you, and i feel like now it is finally the appropriate time....

    ReplyDelete
  33. red is a FANTASTIC COLOR for you!!!!
    Great look! are you wearing red for heart disease awareness? :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Hi, love the layered pearls look. Makes any outfit look classic, doesn't it? It totally bugs me when people put follow me in the comments and add their blog link loads of times. I don't mind the odd 'you might like this' or a giveaway tip but some people are just plain rude! I'm not sure if you follow me but if you ever decided to I shall be very happy, but until then I shall still be following you so get to see all your cute outfits!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I love the sleeves on that shirt. And it looks great with the pearls.

    ReplyDelete
  36. you look good in red. cute outfit. it looks warm in SLC. where's the snow? i can't believe i actually miss the snow.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Beautiful necklaces!;)) Have a nice weekend!!

    ReplyDelete
  38. You look radiant in red! The necklaces are fantastic, too.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Ha! Have you seen the movie Thoroughly Modern Millie? She couldn't get her beads to hang right.

    ReplyDelete
  40. This is such a rich and pretty colour combo on you! And the pearls are pretty and opulent even if they keep getting stuck where they shouldn't...

    ReplyDelete
  41. This look is stunning. I need to purchase some pearls and replicate it!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Such a cute shirt! I love it when I can find shirts with sleeves like that.
    I like layered necklaces, but- as someone already referenced Thoroughly Modern Millie- my beads don't hang right, so I gave up, haha.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Love the layering, it looks gorgeous on the red!

    Hmm, I hope I'm not that pushy about my blog!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I've noticed your look has been changing up a bit lately. I LOVE this outfit and would wear in in a heart beat! I have a question, Do you have to hem up your own pants? or do you buy them shorter? I'm just assuming your shorter...I hope that's ok. :)
    What bothers me is when people say, "great blog" and then ask me to follow, but I can look up comments they left on other peoples blogs and it's the EXACT same. Like they even really looked at my blog.
    I might take you up on Saturday if your still wanting to go to DI if your still looking for someone. You can email me if you'd like, and I'll give you more contact info. My email...yeah it's easy, gangsterpixie@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  45. Really liking this outfit!!!It looks like Spring is on the way there?

    ReplyDelete
  46. 1. Red looks great on you 2. this look is so classic! 3. cute 4. I also don't like it when other bloggers leave their link to their blogs in the comments 5. ^.^

    ReplyDelete
  47. i really love your looks with the layered pearls- keep em coming! i have been trying to find some of my own at various thrift stores, and i plan to use your looks as inspiration. i like how classic this look is, with the red white and black. it reminds me of an older chanel look!

    i was really tempted to jokingly post "looks nice! follow my blog!"- UGH it really is annoying. i hate getting those comments too! ~joelle

    ReplyDelete
  48. You look great in red and black--and the necklaces are perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  49. YES! I posted about my obsession with layered pearls on Tues. Looooooove them! They glam up a look so perfectly. Your necklace is just gorgeous. : )

    ReplyDelete
  50. You´re one hell of cute girl :)

    Love your tight pants and the red shirt you´re wearing.

    And no, don´t you follow my blog, just keep posting such good-looking pictures.

    ReplyDelete
  51. LOL! I ditto your rant! :) Especially annoying when the comment clearly shows the person didn't even read your post, let alone show any interest in your blog in general. I delete those generic "follow me" comments.

    LOVE LOVE LOVE the sleeves on that top! And you look fantastic in that red. I'm needing to get some thicker chain necklaces to layer with my pearls. My thin ones seam to disappear.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Elaine! I just love this outfit, and even though I'm newer to this type of blogging (meaning not just blogging about my adventures), whenever i see those types of comments, and you know they didn't even look at your post - well yeah you get it.

    you rock the skinnies, and the pearlies so well. have a wonderful weekend. i feel like i haven't seen you in forever, which is weird i shouldn't have that feeling at all HAHA. tell the i say hi, and so does TT!

    ReplyDelete
  53. black,red & white very nice fusion :)pretty and comfy outfit !

    ReplyDelete
  54. Love the colors/details of the shirt :) Looks great with the pearls!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Oh yes, I love the layered necklaces. Pearls just can't go out of style, of this I am convinced.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I LOVE this outfit! You look amazing, definitely one of my favorites! I don't even know who follows me, nor do I care but I do think it's awesome that you leave comments on my blog. I think it is so sweet! Thanks for voting for me by the way! I won! Anyways, your blog is awesome!

    ReplyDelete

  61. Pearls always step it up a notch.... i want those black jeans.
    I am sooo upset, yesterday I went to exchange a pair of black jeans that were too small and they no longer had my size :(

    ReplyDelete
  62. This has to be one of my favorite outfits I've seen you wear. Love that top, it flatters you so well with the necklaces.

    I think I saw you on campus the other day and you looked chic as usual.

    ReplyDelete
  63. nice outfit! you look so fab!

    ReplyDelete
  64. ummmmm.... yes, i love this outfit. Classy.. yet comfortable. Awesome :)

    ReplyDelete
  65. Aren't J Brand jeans the best? I wore my favorite pair out... literally. The fabric wore down so thin until it was gone.

    Happy weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  66. love the pearls on the red!!!POP!

    ReplyDelete
  67. The cascade of pearls is refreshing over that solid sweater and black skinnies, very nice Elaine! But my favorite part of the outfit is your very cute ballet flats -- I love the thin little bow they have going on ;)

    ReplyDelete
  68. this is such a lovely outfit! i love it so, so much! you look very pretty! ^^

    ReplyDelete
  69. I have to agree, I love the layered necklace look. Did you buy one that is made all together or are you just pairing a bunch of different ones together? I'd like some tips because your combinations look fantastic! Mine seem to be lacking every time I try :P

    PS: have fun in P-town this weekend. Maybe I'll run into you at the DI. It's seriously my favorite place in Provo.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Oh my goodness, I love those layered necklaces!! They look perfect over the solid shirt.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Elaine: Please follow my blog ;) hahahaha I promise on my authentic coach purse I am kidding {which is a big deal to me since its pretty much the only name brand I have}!

    I love love this look but pretty much everything you wear looks amazing! You are gorgeous. I am planning an outfit tomorrow that is inspired by you I hope I do ya justice!

    Have a great weekend!

  76. those necklaces just look great together! i am not so great at layering necklaces so that the lengths are that perfect mix of put together but fun/'eclectic' looking. awesome!

    that's weird about people asking! i'm sure they are just coming out of a place of excitement so i would just do my best to ignore it and take it in stride. they just want you to like them... i see stuff like this a LOT with the high schoolers i teach. a lot of the asking for certain things to gain approval. seems weird but i s'pose sometimes it makes sense. just breathe!

    ReplyDelete
  77. I love your layered necklaces so much!! I do that all the time with a bunch of my gold necklaces, but I might have to try this look now! Inspirational, as always!

    ReplyDelete
  78. i like your top, and how simple your outfit is. success!

    ReplyDelete
  79. The necklace collection is fantastic! Okay, I guess I need to be on the lookout for additional pearl necklaces so I can actually layer them... ;)

    ReplyDelete
  80. Hi Elaine! Red fits you a lot! I liked it.
    :)

    I gave you a little award on my blog. I know it's kind of a silly thing but just wanted you to know it. :)

    Hope everything's ok girl.

  81. I'm loving the layered necklaces! And the colour of that top is gorgeous on you! I especially love the sleeves, it's hard to find tops with sleeves that length.

    I don't get too many people leaving comments like that on my blog, but when someone leaves a sweet comment I am much more likely to check them out that if they spam my comments with links to their blog! Oh, and one link is enough!, haha!

    ReplyDelete
  82. I love how just the touch of the pearls can dress us any outfit. You look stunning!
    Have a great weekend!

  83. The sleeves on the top are so lovely - such a flattering look!

    ReplyDelete
  84. someone really should write a book on blog etiquette! it's so strange to get comments like that. they're basically spam!

    i love the sleeves on your blouse and the fit of your pants!

  99. Elaine, I love how you layered your pearl necklaces here. I know how you feel about them "swinging out and getting twisted" all the time. Layered necklaces are such a great look, but so high maintenance.

    ReplyDelete
  100. love that color top on you! you always look chic and classy!

  101. Absolutely beautiful, definitely don't get over the pearls! you incorporate them very well, this is classy and fresh and this red makes you glow.
