Craving: BaubleBar Incognito Initial Y-Chain Necklace

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!

Like A Jumpsuit

It’s like a jumpsuit, but not.

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!

Winter Favorites

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!
