Giving It the Cold Shoulder

Top (Boston Proper); Capris (Focus 2000); Bag (Magid); Watch (Fossil); Blue Topaz ring (Ross Simons); Smoky Quartz and Diamond ring (David Yurman, G. Thrapp Jewelers); Leather and Turquoise Cuff (Steinmart); Sandals (Lindsay Phillips SwitchFlops)
This embroidered and beaded lightweight cotton top is one of my "go to" weekend picks this summer.  It's airy, a bit bohemian, and reminds me of a Mexican vacation.  The pairing of turquoise with chocolate brown is a favorite; I already had SwitchFlop straps to match (possibly the most versatile casual summer shoes on the planet); and I really like the "cold-shoulder" style, which was new to me.  

The pewter and turquoise pendant is actually an earring I picked up at a little boutique in South Carolina a few years ago while visiting my brother at his military base. I loved the design but, as earrings, they were just too big.  With a small pair of needle nose pliers and a chocolate silk cord, however, it was easy to convert one of them into the perfect necklace for this outfit.  I'm not sure yet what I'll do with its mate...I guess I'll have a spare if I ever lose the pendant!

Sadly, I don't have a back-up of the top hiding in my closet - I dripped strawberry juice all over the gauzy white fabric at a cook-out over the weekend.  As I've mentioned in a prior post, I don't have the best luck with white clothing....Any tips or go-to products for getting stains out of your favorite clothes?

Fashion is what you buy; Style is what you do with it!
