Statement Slouch.

I snapped up quite a few summery statement necklaces while Christmas shopping, but I’m certainly not waiting until June to wear them.

Side note: Does anyone else do this– shop for yourself at Christmas while you’re grabbing up gifts for the friends and family? Or am I the alone in this?

Layered the statement necklace over a basic gray tee with the perfect amount of slouch, and then added touches of brown with the belt, cuff, and flats. Fairly simple work outfit when you break it down (t-shirt and trousers), but made more interesting by accessories. That trick will never get old.

Top and trousers: Gap; flats: JCrew; Necklace: xx; belt: my dad's (old); cuff: gift
Top and trousers: Gap; flats: JCrew; Necklace: Lily Wang; cuff: gifted; belt: my dad’s (old)

But how perfect with this be with a white sundress come July?

Hope everyone had a brilliant weekend; I was trapped inside working (the woes of content migration), but managed to get out for a bit to refresh the dip-dye at the salon. Because fresh tresses > everything.


  1. The XMas shopping for yourself is not just something you do- I’m guilty of it, too. πŸ˜‰
    Love the pants- such a great color.

    Have a good week!

  2. I really love the necklace- and you’re right, it will look gorgeous with white in the summer! (Which I can’t wait for- winter is getting old!)
    I do a little shopping for myself around the holidays, too! Don’t feel bad- I think it’s natural. πŸ™‚

  3. So pretty! I love that you paired brown with the bright blue and gray. A little unexpected but still works! Awesome post!

  4. What’s even worse is when you go shopping with a friend to help them build up their wardrobe and you end up finding a few pieces for yourself πŸ˜‰

    We’re just savvy shoppers, that’s all!


  5. Those pants are amazing!

    Love the necklace, and it’s so good that you can wear it now because we’re all going to be waiting a long time for summer!


  6. Wow! I would see that necklace and run away scared, but it looks so great when you see it incorporated into an outfit. I should start branching out and add more statement pieces into my wardrobe. One question, though: Is it heavy?

  7. it seems so strange but every year I happened to be a really good girl so that means I have to buy lots of things for myself!! πŸ˜‰

  8. A white sundress in July? Excellent plan. Keep the white theme going, as a reminder. White blazer. White sundress. YUP! πŸ™‚ And that necklace is killer, I love it.
