        I was cleaning out my jewelry box when I stumbled upon this choker I wore when I was in third grade.  I kept it all these years because I just couldn't seem to give it away.  Looking at this brown suede flower necklace brings me back to being eight years old.  I loved this choker so much, I wore it at least once a week with my bell-sleeved tops.  It's just so funny to think that it's been twelve years since I have worn it, and I still love it.  
        As a child I also loved the look of off-the-shoulder tops, but I couldn't wear them because they looked too matured on me.  That's why whenever I would play dress up at home, I would push the neckline of my shirt or dress down to my shoulders to create that look.  To this day, I still think that a woman's décolleté is so elegant and definitely should be showcased.   
        Looking at the photos now, this outfit is definitely a nod to my third grade self.  Same necklace, but I've paired it with an off-the-shoulder paisley top from Topshop.  This top is insanely comfortable and great for spring.  It has a fun print and it's so versatile.  You could wear it with high-waisted jeans like I did, with jean shorts, or even a high-waisted skater skirt.  I know I will be wearing this a lot during spring and probably into summer too!  
        Hope you have a spectacular day!  Let the wonder of your inner child shine through.  As always, sending you lots and lots of love from my heart to yours today and every day!
"Happy is he who still loves something he loved in the nursery:  He has not been broken in two by time; he is not two men, but one, and he has saved not only his should but his life." -G.K. Chesterton
