It’s In the Details

Sometimes I am not overly crazy about an outfit I am wearing. It’s good enough to get me through the day but I might not wear it again, or I might wear the pieces separately. You know those times where you just aren’t feeling an outfit.

Every once in a while though all it takes is adding a small addition to an outfit, a small detail like a scarf, a bracelet, or a necklace to kind of complete the whole look or take it to a whole new level!

That is sort of how this outfit was. I wore this shirt and cardi before with jeans and a different pair of sandals. I liked it, but I wasn’t over the moon about it. All it took was pairing it with shorts instead of jeans, a new pair of sandals, and the most adorable necklace!

Can you believe this necklace is made from hand knitted cotton? Yes, handmade! The cotton used is from the extra jersey fabric used when making t-shirts. These extras would typically go to waste but Ashley salvages them and turns them into these gorgeous handmade pieces! The perfect finishing touch to my outfit!
