Beginning of Spring and a Bit of Bling

*Disclaimer: I did receive this product so review it. But the opinions (and outfit) are my own!*

Oh look! An outfit post! Nashville weather has been a bit fickle recently – it likes to hang out in the 50s, with an occasional day in the 30s or 60s – so I definitely needed to throw on a light blazer this weekend when I headed to my friends’ choir concert and a couple of hours of novel writing in Starbucks.

I’m also obsessed with the J.Crew Pixie Pant. Thank you, random lady in the changing room when I was shopping in January, for convincing me to try them on. They’re like a step above leggings, but still kind of real pants. I wear them all the time.

Last week, Born Pretty sent me this great necklace. As soon as I got it, I knew that it would be a part of my regular jewelry rotation. It’s simple and delicate – which is the case with most of my jewelry – but it still stands out and pulls an outfit together. It was the extra bit of sparkle I needed this weekend, and I had a lot of friends comment on it and ask about it.

The best part? The necklace is actually on $2.53. Everything that Born Pretty sells is really cheap. I love it because I love fashion jewelry, but don’t want to pay a lot for it because who knows how long it will be fashionable. Born Pretty is perfect for that.

Oh, and I have an extra perk for all you readers of Kate the (Almost) Great – use the coupon KAMT10 at checkout to get 10% off!
