Old and New

After hitting up the weekend’s crazy stacked promotion sale at J.Crew I was excited to finally own the Color Collage Statement Necklace (that I paid $42 for…on sale from $165…yahoo!). This necklace is an amazing assortment of bright colors and it will integrate well in my pink and purple heavy wardrobe.  I decided to pair it with the raindrop lace top which I love but always seem to have trouble doing more than just a color block match with it and well, my lattice print cafe capris from 2008 were a perfect way to not do a simple color block. Top it off with the silver Everlys which are feeling much better on my feet after stretching them out a bit and I had probably one of my favorite outfits of the summer so far. Well, at least of June.  I wish I’d had the foresight to purchase multiple pairs of capris from the year I accidentally bought a larger size than I needed in these capris…while I’d still love to be the size I was in 2008, I’m not, and having these pants make it a little better. I like how they’re not as slim cut as the ones that are out now, they are a bit more forgiving on my shape.

Let’s admire the close up of everything …which turned out much more vibrant than my morning sun-exposed shots. One of these days I’ll figure that out. Or get someone to take photos of me full time. Back to the outfit. I can’t even explain how much I love this necklace. And these pants. And these shoes. Got it?

So, what say you? Do you have older clothing items that work with more current pieces? Obviously 2008 isn’t old but in my fashion timeline I guess it is. Would love to hear what you think and thanks for visiting!
