What NYC Recessionista Wears: Birthday Party

Over the weekend, the hubs and I headed to a birthday party … which made it the perfect occasion to break out a new top, right?

Forever 21 pave earrings (similar) / LOFT peplum jacket (similar), necklace and lace top / Uniqlo legging jeans / Clarks ankle boots

This short sleeve lace top from LOFT — which I also picked up in a pale seafoam green — is relaxed, chic and super flattering.

I spotted this necklace at the spring preview event I attended late last year, and I’ve been waiting for it to come out every since!  It’s so beautiful and feels a little art deco to me.

My favorite part about this jacket is the back … the peplum detail at the back is super girly.
