my outfit: heavy metal!

Watch out world... three (yes, THREE!) outfit posts in a row here. What can I say? Like I tell my kids... you get what you get and you don't complain. Well, actually I don't tell my kids that, but Noah came home from school saying that one day and I tried it once and they didn't get it. I think I am raising spoily spoiler spoils.

On to the outfit... I am loving all the layered necklaces that JCrew is flashing around these days in their catalogs and online. Of course they do it much more lovely (and expensively) than I can pull off... but they are JCrew for goodness sakes. Michelle Obama wears them and Jenna Lyons has her amazing pad featured all over the internets and suddenly they rule. (It happened in that order, right?) Here's a little inspiration montage...

I pulled from what I owned already and it was a fun exercise... once I got started I couldn't stop! The many necklaces were joined by some blingy bangles, my studded Cynthia Vincent for Target wedges and then I threw in the studded purse for good measure. Also, I probably weighed 20 pounds more in this outfit. But I liked it.

So, as you can see, I am back to inside pictures. The light isn't as great, but I often squint in the outside light (sensitive eyes, here) and that usually makes me look crazy or old and wrinkly. I have a fun idea for inside pictures that I hope to work on later this summer. So stay tuned for that...

Do you think you could pull some necklaces from your closet to layer? I'm going to try it again soon since it was so fun this time!

So cute... Lookin' h-o-t, little momma!

I don't know if I could pull off the big, layered necklaces. I always feel like a spectacle when I go big like that. That being said, I like the way it looks on other peeps.

I regularly layer two or three "normal" size necklaces to make one huge necklace or throw in a couple of pins.

Lady! You're ready for Hollywood! That's a paparazzi pic if I ever saw one!

Side note: you reminded me of Caddyshack. "Spalding! You'll get nothing and like it!" lol, love that movie.
