Lucky Brand Charlie jeans

zara necklace

Shirt: Topshop (similar or this).  Jeans: Lucky Brand ‘Charlie’ .  Shoes: Steve Madden.  Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs (similar colours here & here). Necklace: Zara (more statement pcs: here, here or here).

On a recent appointment I wore one of the skinnies I picked out from this post.  They are super soft which means zero break in plus they don’t gape at the lower back so a belt is optional.  I wouldn’t have worn one anyway since the necklace is enough bloody hardware.

Yes – I’m going through a massive statement necklace phase at the moment.

My Mum is here right now from St Lucia and I’m convincing her to get 1 or 2 while she’s here.  So help me Godl I’ll slip them in her suitcase if she still keeps saying ‘hmmmm’ to every gorge piece I show her!!

    I LOVE that MJ bag so much – I nearly bought a slightly larger one in the same gorgeous colour from The Outnet, only just restrained myself! x

    Those jeans do look really soft and comfy – I’m a big fan of the shirt and jeans combo too.

    You also look very mischievous in these photos!

    Awwww momma’s are such trouble when it comes to shopping. Mine came to Paris to visit me and spent 5 days literally circling a shirt she loved in a shop. Finally told her I wouldn’t go in the store another day with her unless she bought it. DONE. 🙂

    Amazing. I love wearing a big necklace with a collared shirt, and this is a look that I’ll be aiming for a lot this fall.

    • Karen says:

      I’m wondering too if that’ll be me too for Autumn. I think it might be depending on the day….

    The necklace is amazing! The shoes remind me of the sold out Mango Fetish sandals I want!! But 4″ heels might be too high… Bookmarked to think about. Great look:)

    You look absolutely fantastic. I love this outfit. I love that you have taken a simple floral print button-up and made it so chic with the addition of that necklace and that fab bag. I also love that the greens that you added (in the necklace and the bag)don’t match and, instead they both go with it. Great post!

    I love all of the jade tones in this outfit. The way that you paired those tones with a floral print is so interesting.

    absolutely gorgeous statement piece. i love how it draws out the green in the pattern of your blouse but is able to stand out on it’s own as well.
