i’m wearing: a-thread emerald stone bib necklace, calvin klein pencil dress (similar and this one has a peplum..love!)), asos gold cuff (similar), bcbgeneration heels and my h&m clutch (but i ended up using this gold clutch instead). i’m wearing “got the blues for red” by OPI on my nails.

this weekend the hubby and i had a date night. since i liked this black & emerald combo so much the last time i wore it (seen here) i decided to stick with it. my hubby was hoping i was going to wear my new sequin mini but i think i am going to save that for new years. before i started my blog two years ago, i would have NEVER worn such a big necklace. it’s funny because i showed a similar necklace to a friend of mine and she said her husband would be like “WHAT are you wearing”?!?! and i had to laugh because my husband used to say the same thing. but now even he is used to my big necklaces. i must’ve seen this necklace almost a year ago on pinterest and was SO bummed that it was sold out. so when i saw it on a-thread recently (sorry, already sold out again!), i immediately added it to my cart. i have a feeling you guys are going to be sick of seeing me wear it. =)

    Funny about the necklace – I was the same! But now looking at it, it doesn’t even seem that big! Hope you had a fun date night!

    You look great and I love that necklace. I feel the same since starting a blog I’m more daring to wear things I usually wouldn’t have! Enjoy your holidays!

    Yay for big necklaces…I definitely have an obsession. Yours is lovely -I’ll have to keep an eye out so I can scoop up one for myself if they get re-stocked. And I love the thick cuff as well.

    Happy Monday!
