White collar worker

Showing off my purchase made with my Go Chic or Go Home chic reward: my gorgeous Asos pearl collar! It's taken me a little while to choose what to get, and it's my first ever blogger reward... I'm so chuffed. I've been wanting an embellished collar for a while and finally decided on this beauty - as it's white it should show up beautifully against most coloured tops and sweaters I have. I love how it adds a touch of drama to a plain top. (Thank you, GCOGH!)

This was a bit of a thrown-together-quickly outfit, and sometimes I think they can often be the best outfits, a little like great impulse buys. If I have too long to get dressed (doesn't happen very often, mind) I often end up trying on half my wardrobe and leaving it in a pile on the bed. I tied the side of the blue tank in a knot because the hem seemed a bit out of shape; I also felt like doing something a little unexpected so decided to knot it. I think I like it on the side - who says you have to have it at the front?

I'm also entering my second Visible Monday on Patti's Not Dead Yet Style blog - I think this pearl collar counts as something that makes me visible, what do you think...? It's a bit of a show-off piece, and that's why I love it :)


  1. Oh yes, the collar is so eye-catching and really adds stylish fun to your outfit. I adore the splashes of blue too, esp the brilliant bag and shoes.

  5. I love it!! This collar is definitely a piece that would qualify you as "visible" draws the eye up toward the face :-) Such a beautiful alternative to a necklace.
