It’s Monday. Let’s have an outfit post, shall we?

Well, I think it’s high time we had an outfit post around these parts, whatdya say?  As I’ve mentioned before, it’s hard to maintain motivation to dress cute when anything you don will be drenched in sweat after a few moments in a boiling car, but this weekend I decided to treat my late-summer-in-Texas depression with a little J.Crew therapy.  The depression merely took on another form after what it cost me to buy one shirt and one skirt there, but I really don’t regret my purchases.  I think both are great transition into fall pieces.

Anyway, most importantly, Alyssa with Stella and Dot contacted me recently about a review and giveaway with a couple of her lovely jewels, and upon seeing what was “in it for me,” I agreed immediately and was then prepared to kiss the ground she walks upon. 

The gorrrrgeous Labradorite necklace in the following pictures can be found here, and let me tell you, it’s amazing.  I’m a little obsessed with it, and I also think it might have magical powers.  Just throwing that out there. Scroll down to see the outfit and to find out what Alyssa is giving to one of YOU!

{ Shirt and skirt: J.Crew, Belt: Target, Shoes: Enzo Angiolini, Nordstrom, Bag: Tyler Rodan, Macy’s, Bangle: F21, Necklace: c/o Stella and Dot }

That necklace is a stunner, eh?  It was even feautured in Lucky Magazine!

I have a feeling all of Stella and Dot’s pieces are just as fabulous, and guess what?  Alyssa also has something to give away to one of you, too!  The Heiress Gold Hoops, to be exact.  Doesn’t get more classy than this, ladies.

  51. I really like the classy look you have going on there! Guess its time for me too to get some retail therapy! And I have a very similar bag in beige with the 2 pockets and side zippers. It was from franco sarto though. But our tastes are so alike! I am surprised!

    And I would really love those hoops! My love for hoops is never-ending!

    In their store, I like the concept of making your necklace with different charms..I might be selecting quite a few to mark our upcoming second anniversary!

  77. Very cute Jenni. Love the color of that skirt! Just beautiful...and you're right, totally transitional! Hey, maybe that pendant is a resurrection stone, or a horcrux? Does it have a heartbeat? Do you get grumpy when you wear it? If the answer to the above is no, then you're probably safe...just sayin'

    ReplyDelete
