matilda jeffries meets cleopatra
“By the way, you were wrong about my outfit. It’s the Cheryl Ladd collection, and I got it at JC Penney – on sale!” – Matilda Jeffries
Ok, so this isn’t the Cheryl Ladd collection, but I did get the top at JCP – on sale! I neglected to bring something sorta fancy home for a family party and felt silly in a cotton shirt from Old Navy, so my mom picked up this top for me:
The rest of this outfit has appeared here a few times before – pencil skirt: NY & Co., belt: Express, boots: Bandolino (I wanted to wear by burgundy Fluevogs, but it’s still too nasty out for a wedge). This top with the cool necklace piece is by a.n.a. Check out the detail:
I feel like Cleopatra or something in this, ha! As you can see on the right, the ribbon of the necklace piece goes through metal grommets on the front of the shirt…
…and ties in the back. Cute, right? Also super conveniently detachable – for both washing the shirt and even using the necklace on its own with other stuff. I’m excited to try it! With the right thing, of course.
Green stone-like earrings from Target.
Dang, I feel like She-Ra or something in this belt today!
So sparkly – thanks, sun! Speaking of which…
I was trying to take pics of the top, but the sun made me squint/scowl/furrow my brow pretty hilariously. The result cracked me up – like I’m trying to out-fierce Tyra or something – so here you go:
