Last Minute Aqua

Aqua cardigan (I.N.C., The Bay), black and white beaded skirt (Tommy Hillfiger, Winners), black leather belt (Plum), black pumps (Aerosoles, The Cobbler), rhinestone studs, vintage jet and crystal necklace (Grandma J's).
I was up late last night and totally forgot about picking an outfit for today, so this is what I put together in about 3 minutes this morning. I thought about it briefly before I fell asleep (that's my version of counting sheep, mentally putting together outfits...ah...so pleasant). Not bad!

My second wear of this skirt - lovely for this time of year. I quite like these shoes with it. It has a nice 40s/50s vibe, I think.

This necklace is one of my treasures from Grandma J:This was left in her jewelry box after she died - it was just filthy, covered in gunk. I gave it a good scrub with a toothbrush and soap and water, and have had many years of wear out of it. It broke last year (it was threaded on string), and I re-strung it with supplies from the local bead shop (I took it in with me and they sold me everything I needed for about $3).

I gave my Aunt Lois my blog link - hi, Lois! Do you remember Grandma wearing this necklace?
