Sweet perforations

Despite the fact that I've already mentioned it, and whined about it, I'm still upset that my local Gap closed it's doors on Saturday. Before they did, I had to stop in to say my farewells and, well, buy stuff. The sale tops were buy one get one and I picked up this navy tank with cool cut outs and a drapey sleeveless salmon top.

The necklace is new as well, I made it with some beads I'd purchased over the summer and wasn't sure what I wanted to make with them, until I spotted the "Sweet Drops" necklace at Anthropologie. (I'd happily copy every piece of jewelry they've got in that store.)

I noticed that I must be on some sort of mustard cords schedule, because the last time I wore them was February 28th. And I honestly don't think it was any warmer out today than it was then. My toes are ice, but I'm willing to deal with that for the sake of my beloved sandals.

  9. Frye makes some awesome shoes, don't they? I have some wedges from them in almost the same exact color and they're my favorites. I'm so ready to wear sandals again! Almosttttt there!

    I love the color combination...I've been REALLY into yellow lately, so this is right up my alley.

  23. I like your necklace BETTER than Anthropologie's! So, where will you shop now?

  24. I love the bright colored pants. The trend seems to have exploded in the past couple months. I hesitated on some bright pants at Zara a few weeks ago. I went back a few days later and they were sold out of them!! I'm not on the look out for similarly bright pants. I just love how they can spice up any outfit.

    p.s. you did an amazing job with the necklace!

  32. Whoa- how did you know this necklace was on my mind? Have you been sneaking peeks into my brain again?
    Can I ask where you found the large stones? I am having no luck finding them out here! (Yes, I commented the same thing on your Flickr. Gotta cover my bases).
    You're so crafty!!

  36. You did a freaking rad job on your necklace. I love it! Hope you're recovering from the Gap closure...2 years later I'm still licking my wounds after bidding farewell to Martin + Osa. I wonder if I'll ever recover.
