Wardrobe Wednesday - Color blocking

Hi all, another Wardrobe Wednesday here. I took outfit photos on Sunday because I knew my week was going to be jam packed, ended up hating how the photos turned out and took some more today. Last night was my roommates senior BFA show in painting. Her work was incredible. All of her family and friends came out to see it and it was a great time :] I am going in later in the week to take some pictures of the space.

Anywho, a couple of weeks ago I won a beautiful silver and blue tear drop necklace from the wonderful Mandy at Grace and Viola's blog. I have been meaning to take an outfit post with it, so finally - here it is!

It came in the cutest little package with a sweet note.

I really wanted the blue in the necklace to pop so I paired it with the bright pink top. I also didn't want to detract from the necklace so I used minimal colors in the outfit to help it shine. I hope you all are having a lovely Wednesday. I plan on catching up on comments and blogs shortly - I didn't realize how far behind I had fallen.

Outfit Details: Cardigan - Urban Outfitters | Necklace - Grace and Viola| Leotard - American Apparel | Skirt - Thrifted | Tights and Shoes - Target.

    1. Thank you! I am not sure. The necklace was from her moms work - so I am assuming a shop exists? I would hop on over to Grace and Viola's blog to check.

  22. I'm so glad you posted about color blocking...I'm thinking about redoing a bunch of silk vintage shirts with color block stuff. Your hair is getting sooo long!

    1. Oh that sounds fun! I like color blocking. I didn't realize I did it so often. And yes it is! I used to have an asymmetrical bob with it buzzed in the back - yikes!

  23. I love the skirt!! And the way it looks with that pink top. Also, the necklace is simply beautiful and you paired it nicely. I like that she sent you a thoughtful note, too! Those are the best. When I send my friends or family random little things, I always have to accompany the gift with a note. I know I like receiving sweet words, so why wouldn't everyone else? That's what I think. :)

    Hey, I'm all caught up on your blog!! I had to stop by all my favorites and read back what I missed. I wish I could do it for all, but that would be ridiculous! I wouldn't finish until tomorrow and then I'd have to catch up on the new stuff. haha I'm glad all has been going well in your part of the world and do make a post about what you and your friends did (from one of your recent posts)!!

    1. Thank you so much! The skirt is a new go to piece of mine. I love the necklace too. It was so sweet that she added a note. I love little touches like that. I am sure everyone else does too :]

      Oh my!! Thank you so much, you didn't have to. You are such a busy lady. I hope your time off was wonderful. It is so hard catching up on everyones blog if you miss a day, it is nearly impossible if you miss more than that. It can get quite overwhelming. I wish I had taken photos of last weekend. Everyone and their brother - literally, came to town to visit. I am so bad at taking cameras along with me though. There was a bfa show, three dinners with different families, my boyfriends band played...I need to start documenting things. haha. I hope the anniversary dinner was wonderful as well as the time spent with your friend. I look forward to your future posts. I missed ya lady!
