{outfit} Shining Star

Another day, another outfit, another blazer.  I do love my blazers, definitely an addiction. Whenever I see a new one I want to buy it, most of the time I resist.  A couple weeks ago I inherited this gorgeous topaz and diamond necklace from my Grandmother and I never want to take it off. It is so gorgeous and makes me feel like I always have her with me. I can visit her whenever I want since she lives next door, but it's fun to have a piece she used to wear.

I'm still getting used to my short hair so, for this outing, I tried a mini french braid in front to keep the shorter hairs out of my face. I find it easier than using a barrette, I can never get them to stay properly. BUT then when I take it out I have crazy kinky hair. Funny that I used to WANT my hair to look like that back when I was in middle school. It was all the rage! So for gymnastics I would french braid my hair, and then take it out for school the next day.

Blazer: Gap (Coco's), Sweater: Vanessa Bruno (Coco's $10 sale), Jeans: Michael by Michael Kors (Marshalls), Flats c/o Joie, Topaz Necklace: Grandma's, "M" Necklace c/o Gorjana Griffin, Watch: Skagen (Rue La La),  Rings: vintage, Brilliant Imports snake ring & Mom's

  1. That's a really gorgeous piece - and it's great that it's a heirloom piece and has a history to it.

  4. Aww, you look darling with the little braid! I imagine that must look way better than clipping it back.
