Breton & Quartz Crystal

For casual, easy-chic dressing, I just adore the look of Breton stripes. Paired with this clear quartz crystal necklace from local jewelry line, Charles and Grace Jewelry, I had the perfect outfit for a summer date night. I've been wearing this necklace with just about everything... isn't it gorgeous?

Top: T. Babaton (Aritzia) (similar) / Skirt: Forever 21 (similar in different colours) / Wedges: Naturalizer
Bag: Matt & Nat / Necklace: Charles & Grace (c/o) / Bangles: Lulu Frost for J. Crew

    1. Thanks, Mary Ann! It's Marcelle Rouge Xpression in 802 Delight. Marcelle is a Canadian line so unfortunately I'm not sure where it can be purchased in the US.
