Country Clubbing

This outfit is pretty straightforward, but I wanted a chance to wear the new "statement" necklace I got last week. I like it a lot, but I'm still trying to figure out how to wear big jewelry. Any ideas?

It's not too hot today, so I was able to wear a cotton cardigan and not feel overheated. Also picked up these high-waisted seersucker shorts at TJ Maxx yesterday. They are super lightweight and I like the sailor button detailing on them. Do you think they need a belt? I thought about wearing a belt with this, but then I thought it would be too much with the big necklace.

Thank you!

Cardigan: J. Crew
Shorts: Sanro
Shoes: Seychelles
Necklace: J. Crew

    So adorable and fresh! I don't think you need a belt here. Love that sunny yellow necklace!

    I like the way you've style the necklace here Ana. Definitely don't want the statement piece competing with other pieces in the outfit, so I wouldn't add a belt. The shoes are far enough away that they add a complementary pop of color.

    No belt needed. Gourgeous outfit! I really love how the necklace and shoes stand ou. And the shorts... *me want!*

  • Emily replied 10 years ago

    You look fantastic! I've never seen shorts and heels look so preppy and classy. The big necklace looks great.

    Ana, you are so adorable in this outfit and I love that necklace and the way it "plays" color-wise with your seersucker shorts. The addition of color with your shoes couldn't be better! Perfect in every way.

    Super cute and it does not need a belt! What a great necklace! You have styled the outfit very nicely!

  • Carole replied 10 years ago

    That's a beautiful necklace and the perfect compliment to your outfit. Love the shorts and no belt needed. Lovely!

    I would not change a single thing with this outfit Ana - it is absolute PERFECTION!

  • catgirl replied 10 years ago

    I am COMPLETELY in love with this look, Ana! The bubble necklace is fab!

  • Ana replied 10 years ago

    Wow! Thank you for all the comments and feedback, everyone! You all are so wonderful.

    No belt with necklace--got it!

    Super cute!

  • Kirti replied 10 years ago

    Fabulous look! I have a red version of this necklace and it dresses up any outfit!

  • Jem replied 10 years ago

    It's a really cute outfit! You look so spring-y! I just ordered that same necklace in a bluish color, but don't have it yet.

  • kellygirl replied 10 years ago

    Gorgeous! I think the belt would take away from the cute button detailing. What a fun warm weather look! Super duper cool necklace!

  • Sarah A replied 10 years ago

    love this... Those jcrew necklaces have been on my wants too. Looks incredible with this simple outfit and the red shoes are the perfect compliment...

  • Scarlet replied 10 years ago

    So cute! I think you were right to skip the belt. Do you like the necklace placement? I feel like it could be shortened, but maybe that's just me.

  • replied 10 years ago

    Great shorts, I love the sailor buttons. They would also look awesome with a bright shirt tucked in to show the waist. :)

  • Laura replied 10 years ago

    OMG!! Love this! Incredible! You are looking amazing these days, Ana.

    I absolutely adore the shorts. Seersucker, are you kidding me?? And sailor styling? Totally awesome.

    Can you shorten the bubble necklace just a tad? I feel like I want to see it slightly higher.

  • sarah replied 10 years ago

    VERY sweet outfit. I really love it!

  • citygirldc replied 10 years ago


  • Ana replied 10 years ago

    Thank you so much, everyone! :) :) :)

    Scarlet and Laura--thank you for the suggestion! I do think a little shorter would be better. I usually wear my necklaces pretty short, but I wasn't sure with this one since it's so big. I will try it next time and if YLF approves, I will take it to get shortened.

  • Aida replied 10 years ago

    SUCH a cute outfit Ana, I love love love it! I agree with the no belt needed here, the necklace and shoes are enough extra. Those shorts are pretty darn awesome :D

  • Debora replied 10 years ago

    LOVE!!! Ana, this is perfect in every way! I love the freshness of the white sweater and seersucker shorts with the yellow and red accents. I always look forward to your posts. :)

    You look really pretty!

  • Amy replied 10 years ago

    You look too pretty for words!

    When I saw "country clubbing" in the title above, I kept thinking of mirror balls, dance floors and cowboy boots. It took me awhile to realize you meant going to a country club...with golf and tennis and luncheons :)

    I am delirious with exhaustion, lol.

    This looks great!

  • HelenInCanada replied 10 years ago

    You are an adorable wonder - love your pixie! WOW - this is a head-turning outfit. The necklace is a stunner, and the red pumps with shorts? Wowza. Very cool, springy, edgy-fabulous!

  • Angie replied 10 years ago


    Great new crop too :)

  • christieanne replied 10 years ago

    Off the charts perfect! Love it all.

  • Kyle replied 10 years ago

    Whoa. So fresh and original. Fantastic look. I'm a fan!

  • Kari replied 10 years ago

    I think you're spot on to keep the accessories bold, few, but simple with a larger necklace. I really like the seersucker shorts, and may I also compliment you on your pretty, long legs that are really highlighted (but tastefully) by the shorts?

  • Marley replied 10 years ago

    I LOVE this - you just look so cute (I hope you take that as a compliment!) That necklace is perfect - and enough - no need for a belt! Thanks for posting!

  • AJ replied 10 years ago

    So did you golf in this outfit? : P

    Luv how fresh for spring this looks! The sunny yellow necklace and cherry red pumps are so fun! I agree that the necklace could be a tad higher. The button detail on the shorts are just too cute!

    If you want to wear a belt with this necklace in a different outfit, just make sure the belt is tonal to the top so that the necklace is still the star, but you still have waist definition.

  • fashionista replied 10 years ago

    Perfect cute outfit. Don't add belt otherwise your belt and your necklace would be competing for attention. This is just perfect and that cardi is so sweet. Loved your pumps and sunshine necklace. Your outfit is like a sunshine here making my day and treat to my sore ailing eyes.

  • Ana replied 10 years ago

    Thank you, everyone!

    Amy, hahaha that's hilarious! I never thought about country = cowboy, but I can see now how it could come across that way! :D

    Kari, thank you so much!

    Marley, I definitely take that as a compliment. :)

    AJ, thank you for the tip about the tonal belt. I will keep it in mind next time I wear these shorts!

  • Tanya replied 10 years ago

    Gorgeous outfit Ana! You look so pretty! Love those shorts and do not think you need a belt. I would also try to shorten the necklace ever-so-slightly. And I think it would also look great with a very simple white top (even a tank) and bright jeans/bottoms in a complimentary color.
