What I Wore, And A Necklace Giveaway!

Woo-hoo, we had a cold snap this week in central Florida! A high of 70 degrees had me pulling out my Banana Republic wool pencil skirt and knee high boots. The striped tee is new, from J.Crew. What fun to be a little chilled in the morning.

We had a dip to 70 degrees! So I wore my wool pencil skirt and new/old Donald J. Pliner boots.

I want to show you a lovely necklace, gifted to me by Blue Nile jewelry. They specialize in build-your-own diamond jewelry, and offer exquisite “Signature” pieces as well. My Branch Necklace is from the gold, silver and platinum collection (it’s silver).


Delicate and so pretty – and not a design you’ll see everywhere, on every neck!

Here’s a close-up of the piece, from the Blue Nile site.

    Your comment about the 'fun' of being a little chilled in the morning made me chuckle. I'm in AZ and it was in the 90s one day last week, of course the day I chose to wear longer sleeves in an attempt to at least feel like it was autumn in some way.

  17. What a great giveaway! I am a high schol Family Consumer Sciences teacher – ponte knit pencil skirts are my favorite, especially my newest one from Banana!

  18. Would love this for me and as a gift for my daughter! I also live in ponterest pencil skirts, I'm a teacher so they give me comfort and a pulled together look for school. Thanks for the chance to win!

  19. I love that 70 degrees constitutes a cold snap for you Florida dwellers, that's practically a summer temperature here! And you look incredibly smart and chic in stripes and a pencil skirt and those fabulous boots, Patti. Your new necklace is pretty, great design, and very you – elegant and understated and delicate with a quirky edge!

  23. 'What fun to be a bit chilly in the morning' – gosh you don't know you're alive! There's a few weeks in England where I just don't want to go outside, even all wrapped up 'cos it's so jolly cold – and it's not even that cold here, internationally speaking!

    Lovely necklace, though. Very pretty!
