Just for today, I’m swapping outfit and informational posts. Tune in later for a tutorial!

Whenever I wear a long necklace, I put Husband Mike on alert for migration. My necklaces tend to un-center themselves and settle over a single boob when I’m not paying attention. THIS necklace, however, nestled right into the divot and refused to budge. Can’t decide if that’s good or bad …

    Well, that must mean that you have breasts. That particular bit of necklace behavior has NEVER happened to flat-chested me. 🙂

    You look adorable! Love the caramel brown boots and bag with the navy and green.

  3. Darrell

    Plain Jane, Yet very attractive and beautiful. Casual and fun looking.I like the look.

  4. Nadia

    All three colors look lovely on you! (I like the term “divet” btw – I have that same problem with necklaces and am always glad when I find one that stays centered.)

  5. Emma

    Hahaha. Laughed out loud at that one, I totally have the same problem but A) thought I was the only one and B) never thought about it so eloquently.

      I completely agree with Emma! Why does the migration happen exactly? Sometimes I think my posture must be out of alignment if things (like necklaces) start hanging to one side!

      • Sal

        Eek, I hope not! I think it’s just regular movement and the fact that most necklaces are smooth and slide around against cloth.

    Whenever I wear long necklaces, I have the same problem (happened to me yesterday in fact!) and it always reminds me of the opening scene from Thoroughly Modern Millie. http://youtu.be/KVNcLUE87HQ (I do not solve it by flattening my chest though. I just try to keep an eye out for problems :D)

    Love the color combination and the outfit overall. Curious about the top from Old Navy – does it fit you like that straight from the store or did you have to hem it? I tried on that boatneck top and it was SO LONG on me… the shirt came down past my crotch and just didn’t look good at all. I know I have a short torso, but is it really that short compared to other women?

    • Sal

      Ahhh, this is a petite size, Heather! Not sure if they sell the boatneck in stores in petite, but I ordered mine online.

      • Heather

        Oh, that explains it. I don’t think I’ve seen any petite tops in the small Old Navy in my small town. I like this shirt so much, I may order one online. Thanks!

    HAHAHAHAHAAA! this post made me snort my morning coffee.

    Definitely a good thing when it stays put. Lassoing one breast is not a good look. It’s like drawing a circle around it (“hey everybody, take a look at my left boob!”)

    Oh man, that’s one of the pitfalls of doing self-timer outfit shots — you review them later and find that the long necklace is off to one side. I hate that!!

    Love this color combo, and the proportions are just perfect.

  10. Megan Mae

    That skirt is so perfect. Also you just described one of the major reasons I don’t wear necklaces. They slid around all day! I have found some heavier shorter ones that aren’t as bad, but the worst are the lightweight ones that do what you described!

    I love this color combination. More blue and green outfits, please! I find them very inspiring. I’ve been combining blues and greens lately in tones that I don’t usually put together, and I think I got the idea from your blog.

  12. Gracie

    I absolutely love blue and green worn together. That saying about blue and green should never be seen? Yeah, not if they look awesome together! You look gorgeous.

    Migration monitoring… *snort* I try to buy necklaces that have pendants or are super heavy to stay in place. Or I wear MORE necklaces. Lots. Like a RunDMC amount of junk from my neck. It’s like wearing armor made of sparkly!

    Ha! I know all about boob-necklace syndrome – it happens every time I wear a long necklace, and then I always wonder if I was walking around the whole day with my necklace draped over my boob.
