It's an Outfit From Mama Kind of Day

I didn't intend for this post to focus so much on the jewelry, but now that I look at the pictures, these really are the only ones worth posting (long, long days of work with activities at night makes a very tired face). Frankly, I'm okay with that, because I'm in love with the detail of the top half of this outfit. Since it is hard to tell, I'm just wearing some slacks and heels on bottom. Nothing special. 

Now, on to the special stuff. Guys, I'm in love with this necklace. My mom brought it back from Amsterdam for me (along with the solid gold bracelet) and it is a piece that definitely fills a gap in my accessories wardrobe. I'm pretty excited about it (thanks Mom!) and love the way it turned out with this outfit. Side note - this top is also from mama...just love the hand-me-downs I get from her!

Sweater: St. John's Bay (hand-me-down from mama, similar), Tank: Nordstrom Rack,
Necklace & Bracelet: Gifts from Europe, Slacks: LOFT (similar),
Pumps: Target, Belt: H&M (came with a skirt) 

Do you guys get hand-me-downs from any of your friends/family? I've always wanted to do a clothing swap or traveling item - any other bloggers out there interested in planning one someday?!
