icing

{ What I Wore: J.Crew turtleneck sweater // Ann Taylor skirt // Gianni Bini T-strap heels // Monogram necklace c/o MyNameNecklace.com // boutique belt }

{ Get the Look }

turtleneck {$29.50} + polka dot skirt {splurge $59.50 // save $19.80} + t-strap heels {$35.00, from the Olsen twins' brand for JC Penney} + red belt {$28.00} + monogram necklace {$39.95, exact one!}


I usually am a "golden" girl, but during the holiday season I love pulling out my silver jewelry - the icing on my "holiday party look" cake. 
My new monogram name necklace is the perfect classic addition to my growing jewelry collection... I keep reaching for it to not only add a personal touch to my daily outfits, but to also add pizzaz to my holiday party looks... who doesn't love a little personal icing (to give or get)!?

  1. I'm a gold girl too! I have no idea when the change happened, because in high school I was all silver all the time. Love your monogram :) And this whole post reminds me of How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days - "frost yourself!"

  12. Renae,
    I do take my own photos, with a tripod and remote. I got a Canon T2i for Christmas last year, with the kit 18-55mm lens (f/3.5-5.6 capabilities). I typically use an f/4.5-3.5, but am looking to upgrade to a lens with an f/1.4-1.8... hopefully Santa is good to me this year!
