Chunky Gold Necklace

I found this chunky gold necklace at Goodwill for only $2.50 and loved it.  It is a fairly heavy piece and seems to be pretty good quality.  
My second button down of the week.  This time it's a classic white one paired with a taupe cardigan and black ponte pants.

The Button Down Returns


It has been quite a long while since I've worn a button down blouse.  Until a few years ago I never even wore them at all.  Then I discovered I liked using them as a layering piece or on their own...generally untucked.  As I hadn't pulled one (of my many) out of my closet in a while I was wondering if I was over them.  Another blog photo spurred me to layer one again with a cardigan and so I came up with this outfit.  It felt nice to wear the button down again, I liked the look, and have realized I'm definitely not over them at all.
This particular blouse is a nice shade of yellow...which I don't wear a whole lot of.  I can't believe it only cost 99 cents!  I love this newish scarf and thought it worked well to complete the look.  In a bit warmer weather I could wear the same outfit, but with a necklace to replace the scarf and a different pair of shoes to replace the ankle boots.

Less Blog Time

Well, my work schedule/work load seems to be increasing quite a lot this new year so I've had less time for blogging and have not been able to visit and comment on many of your blogs.  I will try to do more catching up on the weekends as time allows.  
My outfit this day was a monochromatic one.  I liked the sparkly gold threads in the cardigan and I chose to wear my gold flat loafers too.  I like them and they're comfortable, but just don't get much wear.
