Do you ever dream up an outfit in your head that you think will be the cutest thing ever and then put it on, and it looks awful? Yeah, I had that kind of situation. I was originally going to wear a kimono and patterned shorts with this top and necklace but… it looked terrible. In my brain, it still looks super cute. In real life, nope. So, when in doubt change it up!
What I’m Wearing
Top: Pacey Dolman Blouse, DailyLook
Shorts: Boyfriend Cuffed Denim Shorts, Old Navy
Necklace: Mystery Ancient Coins Bib Necklace, c/o Happiness Boutique
Shoes: Mossimo Dianne Espadrilles (similar)
Bag: Proenza Schouler PS1 Pouch in Rip Tide
The base of the outfit still worked, so I just removed the crazy patterns. Sometimes you just got to keep things simple. This semi-sheer dolman top from one of my DailyLook Elite boxes pairs so easily with so many pieces in my wardrobe.Today I’m pairing it with these boyfriend shorts because it’s been hot in the PNW! Almost unheard of to have so many days of warm weather around here, but I’m not complaining. ;)
I also received this beautiful coin necklace from Happiness Boutique. They’ve got some beautiful jewelry that ships for FREE worldwide from Belgium. While this necklace is large, it’s not horribly heavy. It’s a nice medium weight – not flimsy, but not so heavy that I feel like it strains my neck. In addition to the free shipping, Happiness Boutique offers a customer reward program. For every purchase or social share, receive points toward free jewelry or clothing items. Who doesn’t love a deal like that?
Anyways, I’ll keep it short and sweet for Friday and leave it at this: how are you spending your weekend? Any exciting plans?
Ha! I’m so glad to know that other people have outfits that work in their head but not in real life. Because I feel like that happens to me way too often. That necklace is gorgeous!!
Haha, you’re definitely not alone! Thanks Claire!
The necklace looks perfect with your outfit! it’s one I would probably never pick out on my own, but seeing it together, I would totally want to recreate your entire look!
Aw, thanks Carly! Glad you like it!
I love the necklace! I’,m just really bad at styling those kind of pieces however. So I don’t know what i would do to style it. But you look really really cute and styled it really well!
Thanks so much, Ashley!
Such a cute look and a fun necklace!
This weekend my boyfriend and I are just relaxing and seeing a few movies.

It’s really been making the rounds, hasn’t it?! Ever since I got it I’ve seen it all over the place!
Aw I love the necklace! I’m still trying to get the hang of styling the ones I have right now- they never seem to fit quite right with my outfits sadly! Another thing that prevents me from wearing my statement necklaces is that they’re heavy, so it’s nice to hear that your necklace is still a manageable weight!

Definitely true that they can be heavy or bulky… my biggest problem with statement necklaces tends to be that my hair gets tangled in them! :P Hope you’re able to find some outfits that work with your necklaces, Alessandra! :)
I love your necklace! One of my favorite things about it is that its silver! There are so many gold statement necklaces out there, but I think it’s hard to find a pretty trendy silver one

The outfit you paired it with in the end looks fabulous, though! Loving the simplicity of the loose top with the statement necklace. On fleek. (:
