Outfit: Doubled Up

Happy Monday!  I hope you had a great weekend…  Stef and I hosted a dinner party on Friday night, which went very well – except for the fact that I undercooked the chicken.  Oops.  Back in the oven it went, and out came more wine.  One of these days I will master that whole “domesticity” thing… practice makes perfect, right?  The rest of the weekend was spent relaxing (watching House of Cards – my new obsession) at a friend’s bridal shower, and working on some fun DIY projects that I’ll be sharing over the coming weeks.  Now it’s back to work.  This week is going to be intense… but when isn’t it!?

On another note, there’s something going around our office right now, where you have to wear at least two necklaces at a time.  It’s taken me a little while to master the whole layering necklaces thing, but after careful instructions by our fashion team, I’ve just about got it down.

Separately, this top is a new fave… I went to Old Navy’s Spring Preview a few weeks ago and I was really impressed by everything they have going on.

    Love the little anchors on this top – so cute! Old Navy has been hitting it out of the park lately!! And the leopard coat is, of course, quite fabulous 🙂

    Love the simple cas look! I can’t wait until we live in a bigger place and can host dinner parties. It just sounds so fun! No worries about the chicken. I dumped a jar of chili powder on the floor on Friday, so you’re not alone 🙂 xo

    Love this Grace! I undercooked the chicken on NYE— I’m not quite the domestic goddess yet. XO

    I love everything about this outfit, but I could basically live in skinny jeans and button-ups so no surprise there. Glad you had a relaxing weekend, and hope your Monday is off to a good start.

    I love the doubled necklaces! I usually double up a super dainty piece with a statement necklace, but need to venture out with pairings similar to yours!

    I snagged that anchor chambray a few weeks ago and LOVE it! Though I’ve had trouble styling it in the cold– can’t stop picturing it with white shorts and over a bathing suit this summer! Adore it with the white baubles!

    those delicate anchors are so, so fun. I’m trying to avoid old navy so bad because I keep seeing amazing pieces. PS: and you can never go wrong with leopard (need one more massive cold front in florida so I can wear mine again).

    Love your entire outfit! I have been wanting to buy a animal print coat for awhile, but my husband swears that he won’t acknowledge me in public if I do….oops. Guess I’ll have to test that promise 🙂 I went by Old Navy last week and they really do have some great stuff. I can’t wait to replicate your outfit!

    I am still a little hesitant to rock the two necklace trend. You pull it off perfectly! I wish I worked somewhere that had fun rules like that! Hope you had a great weekend!

    Love the anchors on the top, I thought it was polka dotted from far away. So fun and whimsical!

    I have the navy version of this necklace and may need to pull a copy cat move.

    julia childs says to never apologize for the outcome when you are cooking for others – and i tend to agree with her. but more wine is always the answer!

    I just need to go and purchase that top already! I’ve loved it since I saw it on your Instagram. I’ve done the same thing with chicken too. I struggle in the kitchen but you can’t go wrong with adding more wine. 🙂

    Old Navy is totally werkin it lately–I love that top! I’m not sure if I could pull off two bold necklaces like you masterfully did here, but I love layering delicate ones!

    I’m still trying to master the art of layering necklaces, particularly since I normally gravitate to big, chunky, statement pieces.

    Love so much about this pairing – the leopard, layered necklaces, and that adorable top!

    Nice layering! I always feel like my necklaces aren’t stackable, but I think it’s time to play around and find out. And no worries about undercooking chicken — domestic goddess-hood is something we’re all trying to attain! Sometimes I wonder if it’s just as elusive as it sometimes seems.

    I’ve been trying to layer my necklaces too, too bad I don’t have experts to ask at work! Cute coat!

    Old Navy is KILLING it right now. Just went on a mini-spree on their website, and loved that the total was under $50. I wish I snapped up the blouse you’re wearing – such a great transition piece from winter to spring!
