What I Wore Wednesday

I’ve always been inspired by the “What I Wore Wednesday” concept I’ve seen e-floating around out there in blogland, so I thought I’d join in on the fun this week, too! :-)

What I Wore Wednesday

Kevin and I ventured out to Neighbor Jenny’s barn this week to snap some photos of some of my latest Fall favs- American Eagle jeans, a v-neck t-shirt and super soft blazer from JC Penney, boots and a light-weight, gingham-checked flannel shirt from Old Navy, and my prism necklace made by my friend, ย Lucy.

The blazer is made out of a jersey material and it is soooo comfortable. It’s fitted, and has a coordinating pinstripe lining, so I like to roll up the sleeves a little so that shows.ย Looks like JCPenney.com only has it in black now, but it’s on sale for $35.99 so if you’re looking for one in that color, I definitely recommend checking it out.

As for the Old Navy flannel shirt, I have a few of them (all different patterns) and I really love them, too. I wasn’t sure about how it would feel underneath a blazer (I don’t do well with “bunchy”), but these two pieces actually layer really well together.

The prism necklace is so much fun to wear, too.

Like I mentioned up top, it was made by my friend Lucy. Remember Lucy? From Southern Accents and The Chapel Market? She has such a knack for creating beautiful jewelry using architectural salvage.

That’s an old chandelier crystal in that photos above, and I just love the feel of it. It’s solid, and weighty, and cool to the touch.

I got the drawer pull necklace from her, too:

How pretty is that? I’ve been pairing it with white t-shirts and v-neck sweaters lately and I get so many compliments on it when I’m out and about. Sometimes it takes folks a second to realize it’s actually an old pull! ๐Ÿ˜€

I’ve got a couple ofย Lucy Locketsย leather cuffs,ย too:

Our wedding anniversary is 6/25 so I had to have the locker number one when I saw it in sitting in a box in her truck last month! I fell in love with the green beaded one at The Chapel Market too…

I love the way the (thin) leather bands move with my wrist, and my heart skips a beat every time she posts one of these kinds of pics on Instagram:

I texted Lucy yesterday while I was putting together this post and asked if she was running a Cyber Monday sale over at her Etsy shop next week.

She was so sweet to text back with a coupon code just for TLC readers, so if you’re interested in checking out her gorgeous creations (*cough*ย Kevinย *cough*) and you find something you’d like to purchase, use the code:ย TLC2013ย when you check out to receive 15% off of your order. (The code will be good through December 31st, 2013 and she’ll be adding more pieces of jewelry all weekend!)

Anywho, this isn’t a sponsored post or anything- I just thought it would be fun to share a few of my favorite Fall finds today…including this one named Millie:

    I LOVE Lucy’s jewelry. I picked up a necklace at Haven and I can’t tell you how many compliments each time I wear it (and I wear it a lot). x

    I love your outfit! Boots and jeans that fit in them are my favourite thing to wear. And I love the layers. Unfortunately for me, my upper body doesn’t do layers very well at the moment (It’s bulky enough on its own ๐Ÿ˜‰ But I’m working on that.) The jewelry is perfect too!

      Thank you, Jo! And I’m with ya on the boots-outside-the-jeans thing too! LOVE IT!

    You’re just one of those women who gets prettier, not older. I think it every time I see your picture!

    Happy Thanksgiving from Texas!

    Layla, love your blog and am always interested in what you have to say or show us. Had to comment on the picture of “Millie”. I have 2 German Shorthaired Pointers, they are 13 and 15 years old and look just like her. My dear Mom’s name was Millie, she passed 2 years ago, so the picture struck a heartstring with me. Blessing to your and yours and Happy Thanksgiving!

    • Layla says

      Hi Barb :-) Thank you for stopping by and leaving me this precious comment today. I hope you have a blessed holiday season, too!

    going today to pick up a blazer at my local JCP…LOVE THAT! :) Knit…how awesome! I hope I don’t feel the need to purchase something you wore every Wednesday….if you keep up with this series I might end up broke. :)

    • Layla says

      LOL, Netty! ๐Ÿ˜€ I did have a lot of fun with this post, but I’m not sure I can commit to doing one every Wednesday. Maybe ONE Wednesday a month is more do-able! ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Layla says

      Thank you, Claudia! I’ve always been partial to blue. My grandma in Minnesota is too! :-)
