Kate Spade Park Avenue Pearls Necklace

I am the proud owner (and wearer of) this beautiful necklace seen here on this darling Kate Spade model! Here is an up close view of the gorgeousness of this necklace…

With a retail price of $495, this is not your average necklace. Of course, I did not pay the full retail price or my husband would not be speaking to me right now.  The question is;  Now that I own this magnificent piece of jewelry, where can I wear this necklace and how often can I wear it?  Is once a week too much?  Can you wear it with jeans and a t-shirt?  Is it too much to wear it to church?  I ask this because last sunday I had it on and it felt a little “too much”.  I am thinking that Easter Sunday may be the only time for it to make an appearance at church.  It also tends to be a little heavy  I tried to wear it around the house while doing housework and now have a sore neck!  I replaced the ribbon that ties it around your neck with a piece of black chiffon so it would carry the weight more evenly and not hurt after wearing it for a while.  It is much better. Now, after going through all this, I have still only worn it out of the house once and that was for about and hour and a half.  I was looking at the new things on and found a version of this necklace in yellow!  I love it!  Picture it on a black dress or with my green dress and yellow shoes.  I just love Kate Spade!


New Dining Room Decor or Rearranging Again

Okay, this time I took [no, I did not steal it, she offered it] the shelf from Madeline’s room and put it in the dining room. The benefit of having all white decor is that things can go from one room to the other without missing a beat!  I had been looking for something for this space for a while and since I wanted something that cost a thousand dollars, this will have to do for a while.  I am still missing something but, oh well, we never use that room anyway!
