Pants? Trina Turk Shoes? Guess, thrifted Bag? Thrifted (Italian made, pumped about this find...) 
Necklace? Vintage (check out this oneGlasses? Jimmy Choo c/o ClearlyContacts

I wore this to the shop last Saturday. I went to bed Friday night and told Matt I was excited for the next day because I loved the outfit I had planned. Excited about my pink slacks but mostly excited about this stunner of a necklace. I bought the necklace for the shop, at least that is what I told myself (and anyone who would listen to my justifications...) but it may take a little detour at my house first. I'm just such a sucker for the quality and uniqueness of these eye catching necklaces assembled from vintage Czech crystals. Statement necklaces are going to come and go in popularity; one month we'll be loving dainty little charms and the next month we'll want bibs made of wooden beads carved into a zoo of animals (that actually sounds awesome, someone make me that!) but if you have a unique quality piece, you'll be thrilled to wear it whether or not it is 'on trend'.
Seriously, when I talk about purchasing vintage pieces, I sound/read like a an infomercial. I want to apologize for that, but it would be both insincere and so very Canadian... #sorrynotsorry #ilovevintage #ibarelytoleratehashtags #especiallywhenpeopleusethemonfacebook

Ok, done.

I love this outfit too, and I don't blame you for detouring this necklace!

Where is your top from? Love the open back. The pants are BOOM! awesome, and what a score on that bag!

Amanda- the top is a really old backless tank from Mendocino... Like maybe 8 years old!

I used a hashtag on Facebook last week and felt like an ass the second I hit "post". So, yeah. I've hit an age where trends come too fast for me so I just wear whatever feels good and then I'm surprised when I read Vogue and see something supposedly coming back in style because I didn't realize it ever left. And get off my lawn.

I have had a hard time falling asleep at night just knowing an awesome outfit is all picked out for the next day. :o)

Thanks for the giggle over your hashtags!

I am pretty much just smitten with this look. I love the color of your trousers (it looks fabulous with leopard print) and I just love how you put the whole look together.
