Please don't keep secrets about mint green necklaces. It's not nice.

This is one of the first outfits I pinned once I got on Pinterest.
I clearly remember pinning it last summer after the pool one day.
I thought it was such a cute and fresh combination.
I'm a big fan of the white jean. A BIG fan. I also loved the orange shirt with the mint green necklace, but I didn't have a mint green necklace. Poor me.
Fast forward to this summer.
I bought this necklace at the beginning of the summer to freshen up a black dress (a dress I first wore 8 years ago) I was planning on wearing to a friend's wedding. I thought I was just buying it to wear to the wedding. I could not have been more wrong. I of course didn't remember this pin at the time, but when I was going back through my pins one day (do you ever do that?), I found this image and got so excited! Actually, I've found lots of pics with a mint green necklace.

WHO KNEW a mint green necklace would go with so many things?!?
Oh, YOU knew?
Well, I wish you would have told me.
(Inspiration photo originally found here.)
Necklace: J Crew outlet
Orange Shell: J Crew outlet
Orange and Brown Belt: The Loft
White Jeans: 1969 Gap Jeans

The inspiration photo is from a blog I follow:
Kendi is super cute with a great style, and I laugh out loud sometimes when I read her posts.
She is hilarious.
She also has a precious store in downtown McKinney called Bloom. I've been in 3 separate times now, each time hoping to meet her, and each time I've missed her. Boo.
I just know we could be friends if we met! That is, if she didn't feel like I was stalking her and file a restraining order against me first.
For the record, I'm also pretty sure I could be BFF with Kelly Ripa and Bethenny Frankel.

One more thing.
Now is as good a time as any to discuss the whole
metakingpicturesofmyselfbeingreallyweird elephant in the room.
Yeah, it's weird.
Okay, glad that's out of the way.
I feel better.
