J.Crew ruffled top (similar); Gap sweater (similar); Abercrombie & Fitch jeans (similar); booties via Marshall's (similar)

I have a really big soft spot for ruffles and own two beautiful button-down blouses with ruffled collars. Problem:  They are sleeveless. I can't wear sleeveless. Wearing them under cardigans got boring, so I tried a sweater. The sweater hides all the ruffles down the front of the blouse and the crew-neck keeps them all waving around my neck - makes me feel a little like a clown or the more elegant Queen Elizabeth I. I'm going with Queen Elizabeth.. :)

Surprise, surprise.. I wear pants! Sometimes.. I'm having a recent love affair with these dark skinnies. Can't seem to go one outfit without these lately. (Oh, and my booties..) 

When I am not wearing this necklace, I wrap it around my wrist to look like a chunky bracelet. I like it more as a bracelet. Love 2-in-1 jewelry!
