Daily MelWear: Pink and White

You GUYS. Guess what? I finally got a statement necklace! (I know, woo-freakin-hoo for some of you who've had some for a while. I'm usually the last one on board.)

I had some time and a little bit of cash at Target the other day.  I went through their clearance stuff, took a bunch of things into the dressing room, most of it fit and looked okay...but I didn't love any of it.  Not a single thing.  So I put it all back! Yay me!

I ended up going through the girls' clothes and getting some clearance things for my daughter, and I also found this necklace on clearance in the jewelry section.  I love this!  It's got a modern vintage feel to it (ya like that oxymoron?).  I have a feeling this is going to be seen a lot.  I need more statement necklaces, I really like them!

My baby girl wasn't feeling well this weekend (she had some sniffles, sneezes and coughs) so we didn't do too much yesterday.  On Saturday I had the baby shower and then the birthday party; we took her to dinner that night. Sunday was a lazy day (albeit a little bit frustrating at one point). 
So today's outfit revolves around this necklace. I had to wear it right away.  That's how I am with all new clothes, I usually can't wait to wear them.  I just can't even fathom people who have things in their closets for days/weeks/months that haven't been worn.  How do you do it?  When I buy something, I buy it because I love it and I don't want to wait to wear it. 

Really, those of you who can do that, how do you do it?  I kind of wish I could have a little more patience and self-control! 

Anyway, it started with the necklace.  I knew I needed a simple shirt to let the  necklace stand out but I couldn't think of one. I did decide that I should wear this white skirt with these nude snakeskin heels.  These have been hiding for a while because they're too big since I lost the weight, but I bought those heels guards at Target and they fit a little better now.  Good thing because I love them.  So I went with the white skirt, these heels, the necklace...and this pink tee was the best I could come up with. It's a little too casual, I'm not real fond of the v-neck, but I figured with the snakeskin belt and white cardi, it'll work for the office. 

Cardigans make almost anything work for the office, don't they?

Wow, I'm awfully wordy today.  Sorry! I'm done!

Pink Tee: Target

  15. Wow! What a beautiful necklace! I love that you built an outfit that really allows it to take center stage. I may just have to stop by my Target's clearance section to see if I can find something similar.
