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 …

    Divet? that’s a new name for it!

  • Velma

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

  • Patrice

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

  • Darrell

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

  • 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.)

  • 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.

    • Ashley

      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.

  • Kate K

    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)

    • Tara

      I LOVE that scene…and that whole movie really. Hilarious!

    • Yan

      That is exactly what I thought of!

  • That skirt is so cute! I love the pairing of navy and green, and your touch of brown!!

  • 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!

  • Aziraphale

    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.

  • Very cute outfit. I don’t have any issues with where my necklaces land — there are no navigable valleys! : o

  • 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!

  • Anonymous

    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.

  • 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.
