Morning Elegance

Waking up and not knowing what to wear is never a good idea when you've only got half an hour to get out the door. Some mornings are huge fails, and other times I do manage to pull off something cute.

This was a cute morning. I based my outfit around these lace fishnet tights I found at payless the other day for $3. I though they looked like the Rodarte for Target tights, and were a steal. I also bought a ring because I put it on my finger and then couldn't get it off again. It was embarrassing.

The pocket watch necklace is also a new acquisition, I got it from the etsy seller Love Spell Jewels, who has lots of really cute pocket watch necklaces. Mine was only $10, so I also got myself the post card necklace, and as a thank you gift, she included a third necklace for free!

 I am completely in love with it, I must have checked the time every five minutes today. The day did not go any faster. I was so happy to get home and be able to enjoy a tiny bit of the actual beautiful weather.

My other super fun purchase was a fisheye lens adapter for my camera. It was only $50 at amazon, and is just really fun. Everything is infinitely more interesting with the fisheye!

I've been looking for a little pocket-watch necklace too! Love the tights. Fishnets are totally making a comeback. :D
Ah, so you're liking Doctor Who! I haven't had a chance to watch any of the new episodes yet, but I'm glad you're enjoying them. And fingers crossed that SATC2 doesn't screw up the entire storyline even more.

Oh, this look is so stylish and elegant! I like the dress and this shadow of navy blue is among my very favourites. Also, I really like how you combined the scarf with the pendant, they go great together and I feel very inspired to try that myself, thanks for the idea:)
