Turquoise

There's something about turquoise gemstones that feels so summery :) Photobucket

New necklace - c/o Lylif, top, short, New denim jacket - Forever 21, heels, purse - Aldo, cuff - Mom

I just LOVE this Lylif necklace! I created this whole outfit around it, in fact. It turned out to be perfect for running my day errands - sending out giveaway packages, getting my new watch re-sized, picking up groceries and getting coffee. The jewelry and heels glammed it up, but otherwise it's very casual. And since I feel like I'm not working out enough these days, heels are a fun way to make my legs work a little harder :P 

You can probably tell the clouds were moving in and out. In fact, some of our photos (I didn't post) were so dark and dreary that it looks like another world entirely! ...Seriously these rain clouds have been hovering over the bay for weeks! They're making my life so hard since I pretty much refuse to take photos in bad weather conditions. Let's just say I'm lucky I live in California, otherwise I'm sure it would be worse!  

I have found myself shopping online more than anything lately, so when I went to the mall last week and stopped by Forever 21, I was shocked and so excited at all the new merchandise (for REALLY low prices too of course!). Do you ever have a full season go by where you pretty much loathe all the trends? This has happened to me a few times in the last 5 years. I'm so glad I love the trends right now - little white dresses, mesh, floral print, one shoulders, high low skirts, peplum, sherbert hues, etc. What's your favorite Spring 2012 trend?

Pure loveliness Jess! Turquoise & gold = PRETTY! I know what you mean about F21; so, so many nice things. And YES bad weather conditions = bad pics.

I love the draping of that jacket! So pretty! I think my favorite trend would be... leopard print? taht's kind of an all the time thing though so maybe more studs and neons I am loving. =)

Turquoise is indeed summery! And you look amazing, as always! For someone who's not been 'working out much lately', you have very toned legs!! Hehe. =)

Ashley K said...

Those shorts are so cute and a great pop of color to the outfit. So far my favorite trend is pastels for now

Lovely outfit! That necklace is awesome!! It's fun to create a whole outfit out of something like an accessory. It kinda brings a challenge and it's so satisfying at the end if you "nail it" which I think you did, of course :)

Love your shoes too, really like that woven look! And your hair is beautiful with it's big curls! Looks like the curls are higher too, very pretty!

I am loving so many Spring trends. Usually don't really care, but I feel like Spring 2012 is offering SOOOOOOOO many goodies!!! Can't wait!
