Dressed for: Something Borrowed, Something Blue

Already Pretty outfit featuring J.Crew bubble necklace, suede shorts, white long sleeve tee, red peeptoes, Nixon Time Teller watch

Necklace, “borrowed” from Christina
Long-sleeved tee, Gap ages ago but this is similar
Suede shorts, Talbots (no longer available) – similarmore suede shorts
Peeptoes – Bronx Dance Hall via Ideeli
Watch, Nixon Time Teller
Earrings, art fair – similar

I cajoled Christina into modeling for a recent StarTribune photo shoot, and she left this gorgeous necklace in the studio. So OBVIOUSLY I had to sneak in a quick wearing before returning it to her. It’s a great piece, and I love how it livens up a solid white tee!

  • I used to have a pair of bright blue suede shorts…I wish I had held on to them – I love this simple chic look. 🙂


  • LOVE those suede shorts. Very sexy!

  • Suede shorts! And they look so good with the new red peep-toes!

    btw, that watch, omg! stunning. i saw an other blogger wear this before, but i didnt know its model´s name. i have verly lange wrists, you think it´ll fit?
    greetings from germany!

      Thanks, Julia! Hmm, I have small wrists and had 2 or 3 links removed. I can’t seem to find a band length, but you could certainly contact Nixon to ask them!

  • This is a perfect example of a cool summer look. I shall steal this immediately (with knee-length cotton shorts), thank-you-very-much : >

  • I agree; that necklace is great, especially with the red shoes!! Such a chic and fun way to wear shorts Sally!

  • I’ve always believed that accessories can make a simple outfit stand out. The necklace and shoes really added pizazz to this ensemble. Love it!

  • Thank you for the inspiration! I have a pair of brown suede shorts that I have yet to wear, so seeing your post makes me want to pull them out and wear them.

  • Emily

    I do believe that necklace is from Jcrew and it’s been popping up everywhere! I need to get a hold of a piece like that, it looks great on you!

  • Jen M

    I’m trying to resist the urge to order a J Crew-inspired bubble necklace from an Etsy shop. It’s inexpensive, but we’re trying to watch the budget. Thanks for the cute outfit idea!

  • Hannah

    This is very cute. I love the way the shorts fit you.

  • Jan

    What a cute outfit! Looks great on you …

  • I have this necklace and love it! Looks great with this simple outfit Sal! Mine (and the one you are wearing) are actually from the J.Crew Factory, it’s a bit smaller and more wearable than the retail version (not to mention about 1/3 of the price!) I’d love for you to check out how I have been wearing the necklace on my little blog!
    Thanks ladies! 🙂
