Jean Jacket, Striped Top, Corduroy Shorts, Green Lace Tights, Moccasins, & a 90s Choker Necklace

Happy Monday everyone! This is an outfit I wore a couple weeks back. It's currently a little too warm for my jean jacket, but the weather people say it's supposed to cool down this week so we'll see. Anyway, the main story with this outfit is that I'm bringing the choker necklace back. Not really, but I tried. It wasn't a planned thing but I was feeling a slightly 90s vibe going on with my jean jacket that day so I figured I may as well add the choker. It was my mom's 90s choker so that's exciting.

Chokers aren't technically the best choice for short people since they cut off the neckline, but my high-waisted shorts help to counter the shortening effect of the choker. Plus who says I always have to try to look tall? It's all an illusion on the blog anyway since putting me next to any reference items (or people) gives away my height!
Maybe it's time you dug out a choker necklace from the depths of your jewelry...box / drawer / pile?

jean jacket: so... - thrifted | shirt, shorts, tights: forever 21 | shoes: old navy | necklace: from Mom

So what's going on with you? Any exciting plans for the week? I'll be reading many academic articles, attempting to write a paper, and working. Sad times, you guys. It's very hard to concentrate on school work! I have an epic case of senioritis. Though it's not really senioritis since I was a senior in college 2 years ago. I'm going to call it the graduate school blues and also you're-23-get-out-of-school-itis. 

Have a happy Monday and be sure to follow me on Twitter via @petitepanoply and @JamieRDonaldson to keep up with me during the work day! I tweet some cool articles if you like learning stuff. Learning is fun!

Wao I had totally forgotten about choker necklaces! I used to wear them all the time when I was a teenager, I probably even have a couple laying around in my old jewelry boxes. Looking cute as always Jamie, keep up the great outfits!

Dude, I love this so much! Your choker is awesome. The 90s going on here is awesome. I remember all those neon stretchy choker bracelets and necklaces that looked like tattoos since they were flattish. Da. Best.
