As you may have read a couple days ago, I made my own embellished collar (tutorial here), and I have been dying to style it! It's a very over-the-top kind of accessory, and since I am not hitting any Vegas clubs in the near future, I decided to dress it down. I paired it with a Chambray button down, and a floral skirt that I wear pretty frequently (you may have seen it here). I wore this outfit to work on Tuesday. I thought it was professional with just the right amount of flair! I also sported some new hoop earrings I picked up (I've never worn hoop earrings.. this is a first for me). This outfit rang in around $26.00!

P.S. I'm sorry the photos of the collar are not more clear, those little rhinestones reflect light better than a disco ball!
