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.

Ahh! We're doing colored pants for my wear*it post tomorrow!!! You should totally link up, this outfit is super cute (and I think totally beats out our outfit choices)! :)

Ali said...

What a wonderful color combo! I'm actually having aqua and yellow in my dorm room net year, hehehe. I love love your sandals and your new top, RIP old navy. :'(

I actually like your necklace a lot better than the anthropologie one!

Jenn said...

Love the color combo, blue and mustard are great together and it's probably my favorite. Also, kudos on the necklace. It looks exactly like the Anthro one!

DaniellaBella said...

The colours are amazing! Your necklace is perfect! You should design for Anthro!

Ashley said...

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.

JNRS said...

This is my definition of an absolutely perfect spring outfit - you look so bright and stunning. And I'm deeply regretting not making it to the Gap before it closed it's doors...

Navy and turquoise?! You know I'm drooling over here, right?!

Your necklace is fabulous. Who needs Anthro anyway?

hurricanekerrie said...

Your necklace is gooooorgeous! Great idea. Your color combo is fab!

Shey said...

Lyddie you did a wonderful job with the necklace, I love mustard and unfortunalt for me I haven't found a cotton (mustard) skirt or cardi for the Spring. You look very pretty. =)

That sucks that your GAP closed, but at least you got those great pants! Wow, I can't believe I missed those!!!

TrophyBoutique said...

You came back to color with a bang! I love how all of these colors compliment one another, but don't looked forced.

Gracey said...

Fabulous - I love this color combination and will probably copy it with mustard cords. ;-)

Also, great job on copying that Anthro necklace - I love your version.

Mrs. J said...

I love those pants and great buy that blouse is beautiful. Super cute necklace it looks better then the Anthro version!! :)


BTW, I'm surprised Gap closed so fast it was only a couple of post ago when you wrote about the 200 stores closing.

Silver Strands said...

Wow - I'm so impressed! Great job :)

Vanessa said...

I love the way you put outfits together especially with the color combos. I'm learning.

Terri said...

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

Becca [Free Honey] said...

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.

Mimi said...

i really love your pants! i want to get something like it - the color is a perfect yellow. :)

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

<3, Mimi

Love your necklace...what talent!! You did a great job with the necklace and the styling!

missvinylahoy.com said...

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!!

Love these colors together! And your necklace looks fantastic, too! Great job of taking inspiration and making it your own. :D

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.
