as white as it gets

As I mentioned on TWITTER I went to a great charity event last Friday that recommended white attire.
Well, I'm not a huge fan of all white and I don't really like being told what to do (or wear), so of course I had to add some color. Hello peach blazer and turquoise necklace:)
I hate to keep wearing this necklace, but it conveniently goes with everything so you will probably continue to see a lot of it.
I didn't properly introduce you to this ring the first time I showed it on the blog because I don't know who makes it and I don't know what animal it's supposed to be. What do you think? I'm going with owls...
The event was held in this beautiful mansion and on the 50 acres that it sits on. If you look closely you will see I was not the only one who added color.

wearing: zara blazer, j crew tee, urban jeans, bcbg heels, necklace from nordstom, ring from macys, opi cajun shrimp, revlon kiss me coral
worn to: DUNSMUIR HOUSE for an event

  21. Wow that is a beautiful looking mansion. I am soo in love with that blazer also. I have a H&M version of it and I probably over wear it I'm sure. Theres nothing wrong with liking a piece that much I don't think.

  22. Thanks for the comment!! Honestly i just have accumulated bracelets over time, some cheap from F21 and some more pricey.

    Love that peach blazer!! ZARA is my go-to for cute trendy blazers, you could say I have a little bit of an obsession. And about the necklace, I'd wear that a lot too if I owned it! So cute!
    Hope you can follow me back!

  31. I love white. It is one of my favorite colors. I have to say that I need to get a pair of white jeans. I guess that I am a bit scared of wearing them. Anyways, you look nice.
