Pretty Pleats

linea pelle fringe bag

neon ankle strap pumps
nixon the monopoly watch
Blouse: RW&Co, Skirt: c/o Jacob, Shoes: Aldo, Bag: Linea Pelle, Sunglasses: D&G c/o SmartBuyGlasses, Watch: c/o Watchco

Do you ever look through a set of photos and wish you could just make an adjustment? Sometimes it's a undone button or a half popped collar, but in this case I just want to take my blouse and pull it down in the front! Ugh. It somehow fell back, making the neckline high and the front very tent-y. But what can you do? In reality, this is a really pretty blouse that I just picked up from RW&Co - they were having a 60% off sale, so I snagged this pretty pleated top for a mere $20! 

Wait a minute, and am I wearing silver? Yes, I have made it my summer mission to grow my collection of silver jewelry pieces, starting with this gorgeous Nixon 'The Monopoly' watch from Watchco! I made a discovery recently that the reason I don't generally like silver is because it's often too dainty and pretty, but I loved that this watch is a little more rugged, and such an interesting shape. I absolutely love it, and now need to start my collection of things to wear with it! I'm still a gold girl through and through, but it's going to be fun to mix things up now & then!

  23. I hate when blouses don't cooperate! I love this all black with the cute pop of summer on your feet. I'm also a gold kinda gal but that watch is gorgeous I can definitely see how you're embracing silver tones.

  24. I actually like the blouse as is, but we're always our own worst critics.

    That skirt is really cute, which is a bad thing, since now I have to check out Jacob. Whoops :)
