Spikes and Paisley

This inspiration for this pairing came from Jessica - her taste is impeccable!
I'm very happy with this spiked necklace, and I'm looking forward to further experimentation with layering it. I think there is a good deal of potential there.

  4. I like the spikes (edgy) paired with the pretty girly paisley top. It's a nice mix. The white jacket looks great with the blue top too.

  34. Squee! Love it on you! I really need more patterned shirts in my life.

    Spiked necklaces are really best done with rhinestones, aren't they? :-)

    Happy Friday!

  37. I love everything about this outfit from the perfect white blazer to the hints of cobalt blue with your shirt and bag!! Simply lovely and that necklace is a great staple piece.

  38. I like your spike necklace too! Your take on black and white here feels so modern with the blue paisley... sometimes I think black and white and prints can look a bit stodgy, but this is very fresh!

  43. The spikes look great on top of the paisley...they are toned down a bit and not so in your face...but still edgy.
