What I'm Wearing Wednesday


Happy Wednesday, friends! I hope you all are having a fabulous week. I have a few new items in my closet that I was able to wear out this weekend. First, I have been coveting a gorgeous statement necklace from J.Crew for quite some time. It is simply gorgeous but I have this rule about statement necklaces - I try to only purchase statement pieces that are under $50 since they are purely costume jewelry. So no J. Crew coral rosette necklace for me (it was ringing in at $148) or so I thought. Enter GroopDealz. A couple weeks ago they posted a knockoff in one of their flash boutiques and I was all over that before it sold out.

I was pretty proud of my thrifty-ness so I purchased another bow back top to wear with it. This time I chose white and found it on sale. I broke out my new Target Marguerite wedges that I had to search 6 different Targets to find in my size and wore this look to a party on Saturday:

I'd gotten a manicure on Friday with a gift card one of my sweet kiddos gave me for Christmas so I decided to wear coral accessories all weekend. This shade is California Coral by Essie, I believe.

On Friday night we did a happy hour and dinner with a few friends. It was so warm during the day that I planned to wear this short sleeve Lilly top. Then, I took Riley out before I left and realized it had gotten really cold really quickly so I ended up wearing a long sleeve version of this top. The statement necklace is from Red Dress Boutique. 
I only documented one work outfit this week. The pants are from Express, the wrap top has a really cute polka dot pattern on it and is from Banana Republic. I wore my TB Sophie wedges that Corey gave me for my birthday. 

So Kerri and I have been chatting about the linkup and we really want YOUR opinion. What do you think so far? Is this something you like seeing weekly or do you think you'd prefer if we posted WIWW less often? How can we motivate you to join in?

  4. I'm the same way when it comes to statement necklaces. I can't justify spending that much money on something I may not wear in a year or so.

    Love the nails!
