One Necklace, Three Occasions

I might have mentioned this before, but since my freshman year of college, for 95% of the clothing I purchase, I usually ask myself, "Is this practical?" I don't like buying things that I only plan on wearing once, even if it's for a special occasion. In that case, I will find some way to work the piece into my everyday wardrobe. The only exception to this rule would be my prom dress.

While at Nordstrom a few weeks ago, my mission was to find a statement necklace. Lo and behold... I found this glimmering in the light, on the jewelry table in the teen section. It also came in other colors like powder blue, clear, frosty white, black, and yellow. I liked this grapefruit color the best. It reminded me of the fresh fruits that are about to be in season for summer.

For the following three outfits, here is the occasion/type of weather:
1. School, the mall/overcast
2. Day at the beach/sunshine
3. Girls night out, date night/any weather

necklace: Nordstrom B.P. $14 

shirt: Old Navy $10 SALE //lace tank: GAP $8 SALE //jeans: Nordstrom B.P., Vigoss Studio //gladiators: Nordstrom Rack, MIA //nailpolish: Bartell's, Sinful Colors in Thimbleberry $2

shorts: Old Navy $15 SALE

skirt: Nordstrom B.P. Lush //sandals: Nordstrom Rack, Steve Madden //nailpolish: China Gaze in Peachy Keen
