Stripes and Bubbles





This is my I'm done and I have to pee look.


Top: Target
Pants: Target
Sandals: Old Navy
Necklace: ebay

I've been eyeing this J.Crew bubble necklace ever since I joined the world of Pinterest. If you're on Pinterest, you have probably definitely seen this gorgeous necklace floating around. It's amazing. The $150 price tag... not so amazing. So I found this nearly identical necklace on ebay for $16. No, that is no typo. 16 bucks. That's less than a jumbo pack of toilet paper. (I must have to pee again.)

Oh, can I just say, kudos to my loving hubby. After an almost 12-hour work day, I'm sure the last thing he wants to do when he gets home is be his wife's fashion photographer. But he does it anyways. I love him.

    1. It came about 2 and a half weeks after I bought it. Not too bad considering it came all the way from China! :)

  16. I have that same necklace from ebay. For the price I've had a hard time not buying it in EVERY color. (I literally have almost every color...) I love the mint pants, too. I have a pair from UO and I love to wear them with my turquoise bubble necklace... it always looks great no matter the top. I love this ensemble on you.

  20. Don't you love those jeans? They fit like a glove - I love Targets Fit 4, they are great! I have the same mint pair but have yet to wear them! I also have the same necklace from the same ebay guy - we are on the same wavelength!!

  33. The necklace goes perfectly against the navy blue stripes. I just received the same necklace in yellow..I don't understand how they are able to get away with charging people $150 for it though. That's highway robbery. Nevertheless, I can't wait to wear mine!!
