Manic Monday: The beaded necklace




Sunnies: Gucci | Necklace: MOD (local boutique) (option)  | Top: Express (option, cheap option)  | Bracelet: JCrew Factory (love this) | Bag: Kate Spade Saturday (option) | Skirt: Gifted (option, option, option)  | Wedges: Enzo Angiolini (snakeskin option, metallic option)

Mix it Monday: See how else I've styled these pieces!
Left: Mint clutch | Right: Red skirt

I love this necklace. I just love it. If you follow me on Instagram, you saw this picture where I said this necklace and these wedges scream summer to me. Isn't it so true? What's funny is that I bought a very similar necklace for one of my good friends (see said necklace and friend here.) When I bought it for her, I thought it was really cute, but didn't think to buy one for myself.  That same boutique I purchased my Friday tee from had this necklace in store, and I couldn't resist.

In true Carylee fashion, I was inspired by this pin here. I decided to break up the solids with a pinstripe tank, and the length of this skirt felt better with wedges than with flat sandals. Yep, I love it all. I feel like I've been saying this a lot lately, but this will go on my list as another favorite outfit for me. And I can't wait to style this necklace again and again!
