As you have probably noticed, I’m fairly minimalist when it comes to jewelry. Although I’m almost always wearing rings and something on my wrists, I rarely accessorize with a necklace other than my everyday Dogeared chain which for the most part, remains hidden under my tops. Although I’m always looking for a new ring, necklaces normally remain ignored. However, every so often I see a necklace that grabs my attention.
Right now I’m loving the Y-chain or lariat-style necklace, which I think goes great with a simple tank or tee. I saw a photo of this BaubleBar Initial Y-Chain Necklace and I had to check it out immediately. It can be pre-ordered for a reasonable $28, and will be ready to ship May 3rd. Such a great, simple piece that I’d love to add to my jewelry box and also perfect to layer with other shorter chains. Check it out here!

One of the things that has always turned me off about one-piece jumpsuits , is the restroom issue. I really have no desire to strip down in a public stall just to my business. On the other hand, they can be very chic and makes for easy dressing…if you can find the right fit. And as a petite, this is especially challenging.
I was shopping my closet the last few days and saw that I had purchased this blouse from H&M years and years ago, but it has rarely been worn (also true of 98% of what I buy from H&M, which is why I have stopped shopping there). Paired it with these Theory bottoms…et voila!

An outfit wearing my favorite things as of late and a briefcomment about this Equipment Cashmere sweater. I am always apprehensive about buying expensive cashmere. Cashmere isn’t what it used to be, and you could be shelling out a lot of $$ for not so great cashmere. I have read tons of reviews on Equipment cashmere, but I wasn’t totally convinced about the quality. I found this particular Sloane crewneck sweater at Nordstrom’s for approximately $100, which I didn’t think was too bad if the quality wasn’t all there. Overall, it is soft, and the fit is a bit oversized on my petite frame, but I am finding that it pills…even before it has been washed. It’s not horrible pilling, but pilling nonetheless. I am happy I didn’t pay full price for it, but I continue the hunt for a great quality cashmere sweater. On the other hand, I love the color contrast between this merlot-colored sweater and the camel blazer!
