Jewel Collar and Pink Skirt

jewel collar jewel collar

One thing I love about having a fashionista big sis who always looks on-trend and appropriate but lives with a big city-sized (i.e., small) closet? Of course the hand-me-downs.

Like this sweater which I coveted from J.Crew and decided too late that I wanted in my life. Lo and behold, it was in a bag of other goodies I got from my big sis over the holidays when I went home to visit the fam. Thanks, sis!

  1. I really like this, Lisa! I have a similar pink skirt I put away because I thought it was too summery, but I think I need to use this look for se great almost spring inspiration.

  2. I wish my sister was like that. Instead it is me giving her my hand-me-downs.

    I love that jewelled collar.

  3. I wish my sister and I wore the same size so we could swap clothes! The jeweled collar is such a pretty detail!

    1. She's technically a size smaller than me, so I can't wear any of her bottoms for sure!

  4. The button down top looks great paired with that sweater - I think the jeweled collar makes it stand out so nicely! And I think the bright pop of color is perfect for this time of year.

  5. I love getting hand-me-downs from my sister coz it's almost always filled with goodies! Love how you paired the skirt with the jewels on the collar, btw. ;)

  7. Hmm, can your sister adopt me as her sister too? That is awesome she gives you her awesome hand me downs that look nothing like hand me downs! I'm super jealous. ;)

    1. She's super duper careful with her clothes, which works well for me!

  11. Oh how fun that your sis gives you her clothes! I loved it when my sister and I lived together in our teens and '20's. It was like having a double wardrobe. I want that pink skirt!

    1. It's a double wardrobe for me - but I don't think she enjoys my taste a lot of the time, hehe.

  12. You look adorable, I love that J.Crew skirt I have it too.

  13. In many ways, being the younger sister is totally awful...but the hand-me-downs certainly do make up for it (in part). Love the pink + leopard in this outfit!

    1. Yeah, the fighting when we were little was pretty fiercesome, haha.

  14. So jealous right now. I've got three sisters - two younger and one older - but I'm the black sheep (read: largest) and I never get hand-me-downs that fit. Insert sad face. One can always take in things too big but there's no hope for things too small. Someday, I'm gonna befriend a gal who's my size and I'll be gifted with loads of quality discards. Yeah, right...

    Btw, are you joining me for T3 tomorrow? I know you're super busy with life, but perhaps you've read/are reading something that inspires an outfit? /bats eyelashes pleadingly

  15. This outfit is just lovely on you, Lisa! And I so wish my sister was my size.... or perhaps it's better off that she isn't! :P

    1. She's technically a size smaller (and taller!) so I can't wear her pants, but we can share tops and dresses.

  17. The collar on your top is beautiful! :) So nice of your sister to pass it onto you :)

    My sister and I used to share clothes all the time growing up - it was great! :)

    1. I kind of don't get why J.Crew didn't continue this skirt in more colors. I would have been all over them!

  20. look so cute on you. You are so lucky to be the same size as your big sis and have fabulous taste in clothes! So jealous :)

  21. I love this pink skirt so much!

    You are so lucky! My sister does not really care about clothes. At all. And if she wants to wear something, she borrows something from me. The sweater is lovely!

    1. Lucky for me, my sis has always been the fashion plate of the family. She's also really good at hair and makeup ... which typically means most times she looks like the younger sister!
