Mixing it up a bit - 7/23/15

So after deciding last night that I didn't like my yellow sandals any more, I wanted to wear a new shirt that matched them perfectly, so here they are again.  I know it's not the most flattering color and not everybody likes it, but it just makes me happy!  The fact that it's a linen tee also makes me happy - I love linen tees so much.  They are so much cooler than a regular tee and a bit dressier, but still have that comfort and ease level.

I hesitated over just pulling out navy or black pants today, but figured, why not pair putrid yellow with putrid green?  Now that I look at the pictures, I think I probably would have been better off with navy, but I like to mix things up a bit.

I also broke out a necklace that has been lingering in my closet for a while now, unworn.  It's a bit intimidating to me, and I just haven't been able to figure out how to wear it, but I think simple everything else is the way to go.

I ordered this one online, but I would recommend feeling them in person, just to make sure it's not going to be scratchy. This is the one I got:
