Daily MelWear: Jewelry Inspiration

You guys are so encouraging. You helped me get through the day yesterday.  I just have to get through today/tonight and then I'll see my girl for a few minutes before work tomorrow and again when I leave work tomorrow night. I can't wait!

I'm feeling less than inspired lately with my outfits. This one came together mostly because of the jewelry, for which I need to give a HUGE thank you to ML of Twenty York Street!!! She has the most exquisite taste and I'm honored that she sent me some gifts AND some giveaway items! Stay tuned; I'll throw up the first giveaway post soon! So exciting!

This shirt is way too big. I didn't even realize I'd kept anything from my pre-weightloss wardrobe but this is one such item. I decided since I was going to belt it that it might work anyway.  I think the only reason it does is because of the necklace! Isn't this necklace gorgeous? Pearls, diamonds, gold strands...*sigh*

And CHECK OUT this bracelet! This is fantastic-ness wrapped around my wrist! Love it.

I took a typing test yesterday and got 89 wpm with 100% accuracy the first time, then 92 wpm with 99% accuracy the second time. I'm supposed to have at least 30 wpm for my test tomorrow morning! That makes me feel a little bit better.

And that's really all my news.  I miss you guys.  I haven't been able to read any blogs or keep up with anyone lately and it makes me so sad. I feel very detached from my bloggy friends!

Today's outfit:
Brown Top: Can't remember. Really.
Brown Floral Skirt: Target
Teal Belt: Salvation Army
Brown Studded Heels: Wal-Mart
Necklace and Bracelet: Gift from ML
