I loved this outfit so, so much. Others seemed to really love it too, if Instagram is anything to go by. Love all around, you might say. If only sartorial success came so easily every time – because, seriously, this was the easiest outfit to pull together, ever. To be fair, I’ve noticed that my outfits are generally coming together much more easily these days, a fact which I attribute to the increasing (slowly but surely) cohesiveness of my personal style. I also feel like my outfits are simpler than ever — featuring few or no accessories — which used to bore me, but now delights me. Adding a necklace used to be instinctual; now, as often as not, I take it off before I leave the house, or never bother with one in the first place.

Clearly, this outfit was an exception. I couldn’t say no to my favourite necklace, which has been seeing the light of day less frequently than before. It’s still a great piece, and I still wish Banana Republic made stuff like this nowadays instead of the cheapo crap that falls apart in a couple of wears. Yep, I’m still bitter about the last pieces of costume jewelry I bought there. Anyway, this necklace is great and I am actively hunting for a back-up on eBay. In the meantime, I am also pondering this Verena necklace from Anthro (non-affiliate link). Does anyone have thoughts on the quality of Anthro jewelry? Lemme have them in the comments.

  1. I love this outfit on you too — the mix of blues is so pretty! I wish it was a bit cooler here because I’m really missing my jeans. However, in Maryland I probably won’t be able to get them back out until October-ish.

    I have a few necklaces from Anthropologie and have been very happy with the quality. Even after wearing some of them for years, nothing has broken or tarnished in any weird ways.

  2. That’s a great necklace! I have mixed feelings about Anthro jewelry. I’ve bought three necklaces. Two have lasted for several years without problems. One broke within two months. Hopefully this one is made well?

  3. I have mixed experiences with Anthro jewelry. An older one from 2010 has no issues but the newer one had the stone fall out .
    I saw you mention about Alexis bittar pieces in a previous post. I get mine from consignment (therealreal). I believe they ship internationally.
