Natasha + Royal Paisley + Bubble Necklace

Natasha blouse in gallery green:  J.Crew, winter 2012
No. 2 pencil skirt in royal paisley:  J.Crew, fall 2011
Bubble necklace in kelly green:  J.Crew, here
Bubble earrings in kelly green:  J.Crew, here
Mary jane heels:  Sam Edelman
This could quite possibly be my favorite of all my J.Crew pencil skirts.  That may surprise you, as the print and the colors are not as striking as some of the others.  However, this particular pencil skirt has the magical capabilities of completely camoflaging any and all tummy pooch, despite the fact that I am wearing a 4 rather than my usual 6.  Even from the dreaded side angle, I look flat as a board from the waist down.  And that, my friends, deserves the award of World's Best Pencil Skirt.

I know this necklace probably shows up better against contasting colors, but for some reason I am addicted to pairing it with green tops.  And if you are debating on the bubble earrings, alone or to go with your bubble necklace, Just Do It.  I am SO happy I did!

Hope everyone has a great weekend planned!  We have plenty of R & R planned, with several happy hours to attend...on our front wrap-around porch.  Cheers!


  1. Happy to see you are LOVING your new bubble necklace, as I am also loving mine! Another fabulous outfit!

    1. Glad you are loving yours too! It was well worth the price for me!

  2. I am glad to see the bubble earrings - I wondered how they looked and I think they look really lovely on you!

    1. They are really great! I know they are pricey but I am surprised how much I love them...they totally complete the necklace.

  3. Ooooo great to hear about the earrings. I've been wanting a pair in white because I think they'd make a nice alternative to pearls :) Only I'm a little worried cause my ears are really sensitive to non gold and silver metals :(
