How to Wear DIY: That necklace I made, from that bracelet...

A while back I made this necklace, recycled from a J.Crew bracelet... I've worn it to work a few times, but last weekend I wore it for hanging around at my parents' place.  Paired it with my new mint tee--I'm a little obsessed!  This one was only $5.80 at Forever 21 but gives me a flash of that fun color.

And it was warm enough to cuff my jeans!

They have the best porch swing. 
Sweater: Gap via Goodwill (similar and similar). Tee: Forever 21. Jeans: Levi's. 
Flats: Land's End. Bead necklace: DIY, recycled!

The relaxedness and springiness of the outfit took the necklace down a bit, right?  Not too dressy.  Ohhh, I can't wait for some more nice weekends coming up this spring!


  1. i love mint too! and love the soft colors in the photography.

    1. Thanks! Yeah, I'm working on playing around with photo lighting and edits...

    1. Thanks! It was an easy one and it's fun that it goes with tees!

  3. Oh Suzannah, these are lovely pics of you! I'm loving the necklace, I think just the right length. ;O)

    1. Aaw, thanks! It's a new necklace length for me, so I'm getting used to it, but having fun!
