wednesday white giveaway!

Hello again.  I feel so refreshed after a little blog break and happy to be back!  What better way to kick off the middle of the week than with a fabulous giveaway!!?

May I present this new Deja Vu tassel pearl necklace that I am officially obsessed with.  I walked into Deja Vu in Seaside the other day, spotted this beauty, and had to buy it.  It’s everything I love – pearls, tassels, classic style, and the perfect amount of bling.  The gals at Deja Vu were so sweet and offered to give one away on the blog – yay!

For fun I thought I would show you how this necklace looks in person.  So I threw on a little blue dress before carpool yesterday and asked Peter snap a few pics.  Note:  we are not professionals, ha.  The wind was blowing like crazy and I was haggling with my hair, which was fizzled from been crammed in a riding helmet the night before.  The clock was ticking so I was rushing Peter who was firing off shots with no warning.

You could see how easily this necklace can jazz up a simple linen dress.

We shot in the backyard of our bay house.  I’m surprised there’s not a chicken or two running around in the background.

I love that the tassel is generously proportioned, not flimsy or scrimpy.  And the necklace itself is not too heavy, which is another plus. Don’t you hate wearing heavy necklaces?!  Here’s another close-up.  Got a new mani last week during my break.  The color is “Funny Bunny” by OPI.

This necklace is perfect for pretty much any outfit.  Last week you may have seen on my IG that I wore this tassel necklace with a simple white tee, jeans, and blazer.  Sooooo easy.

The day I actually found it in Deja Vu I was already wearing my kate spade necklace – I actually liked the two necklaces together for a fun layered look.  Like I said, this necklace goes with anything.  Look at that cutie pearl necklace hanging in the background.

P.S.  I love so many of the necklaces (like all of these), dresses, and accessories in their store – if you’re ever here you have to visit Deja Vu.  Or shop their boutique online.

    My husband and I love to visit Charleston whenever we can. I would wear that gorgeous necklace with a sleeveless linen top and a cute skirt with some sandals (that outfit sounds so happy right now, after the winter we have had!).

    I’ve always wanted to go to NYC. We are thinking about going this fall for our 25th wedding anniversary. I would wear that necklace with a blazer and jeans. I love the top you are wearing in the last photo. Do you mind sharing where you found it?

    My husband and I would stay at Blackberry Farm, a luxury resort in the Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee. It is fabulous and so relaxing. I would wear the necklace with a denim shirt, white jeans, leopard belt and heels, and a blazer.

  4. Posted April 2, 2014 at 8:18 am | Permalink | Edit

    Fredericksburg, Texas and enjoy all the things a little German town has to offer (and hopefully see some Texas wildflowers in bloom)!
    I would wear the necklace with a simple black slip dress layered with an awesome vintage crystal rosary necklace I just scored on eBay!

    With the hustle and bustle of life, sometimes nothing beats a stay-cation! I often have to remind myself to stop and take in the beauty and charm of my everyday surroundings. The necklace is so fabulous, I’d wear it with a white tee, black leggings, and a denim jacket to go on a little local adventure around town with my honey.

    I’d go to Galveston. I love the beach, and Galveston is just an hour down the road from me. I could sit in the sand all day, reading under an umbrella and listening to the sound of the surf, then wear that fab necklace out at night to dinner — dressy or casual!

    Whoops. A fresh fish dinner at a seaside shack. The one all the locals know. Wearing my new necklace with a gauzy free flowing linen dress and St. Tropez sandals. And, maybe a well worn leather jacket if it get’s a little cold.

    Oh what a beautiful giveaway! Thank you to you & Dejavu! For a quick getaway, I would head to Asheville… Enjoy the amazing food and detach! For a longer/planned trip, I would head to Italy, particularly this little town that is untouched and simplistic, and still speaks the natural dialect. I read about it in NG over the weekend, but of course the name has escaped me! And I’d wear it with about anything, but love the way it would stand out with jeans and a black top or blazer! Thank you! Analise

    I would love to wear the necklace with all white – white tank and white skinnies!

    I’d love to get away to a quiet beach (without the 3 yr old and 1 yr old!!) or perhaps the spa at Barnsley Gardens!

    Thanks for the chance at such a fabulous giveaway!

  13. Posted April 2, 2014 at 9:03 am | Permalink | Edit

    Such an adorable necklace! I love a good tassel! Skinny jeans, flowy blouse and heels would casual this up or a sweet sundress.

    My 48 hour vacay would be to the deep south at a bed and breakfast. PS- Doing a week long stay at Rosemary Beach in June, so I’ll stop by Deja Vu.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    After living away from the Gulf Coast for a few years now… I would have to take a trip back to white sugar sands, always peaceful.

    I would so wear this wonerful piece with a white boho blouse and my faded vintage levi’s with cuffs flipped up…maybe ballet flats or just barefoot …with some sand in my toes :)

    As always…thank you for a chance at this giveaway !

  17. Posted April 2, 2014 at 9:24 am | Permalink | Edit

    I would go to Asheville, North Carolina. And the necklace would be perfect for dinner out!

    I would take a drive to Miami with my husband in a snazzy sports car with a coral colored top, cute white capris or shorts and ankle strapped wedge sandals. Oh, and my new straw bag! Love the necklace. Thanks for showing all the ways we could wear it.

  19. Posted April 2, 2014 at 10:06 am | Permalink | Edit

    I would go to Round Top Texas and stay at the Rachel Ashwell Praire. I think the necklace would look so great with anything, but thinking blue jeans, white t shirt and my cowboy boots and that gorgeous necklace would be perfect !

    Seleta,

    I would head down to Fernandina Beach, which is only about 1.5 hours from where I live. My husband passed away one year ago this week, and nothing soothes the soul quite like the ocean. I love the look with the jeans and the navy blazer you are wearing. A long day relaxing on the beach and then a quiet walk downtown in the company of good friends is just what I need!

    P.S.
    I’m really loving that blazer. Can you share where you found it?

  21. Posted April 2, 2014 at 10:10 am | Permalink | Edit

    We’ve been dying to run away for the weekend. Perhaps we’d finally make it back to Sea Island? That pretty necklace would look great at brunch at the lodge. I’d wear my favorite purple dress!

  22. Natalie

    We would go to New England and explore the beautiful coastline. I’d wear this with white jeans and neutrals. Let’s hope this all comes true!

    I would grab my boyfriend and hop on a plane for a quick getaway to Sonoma for the weekend – we went there a year ago and had the best time staying at a quaint bed and breakfast, doing far too many tastings at nearby wineries, and just relaxing for a few days. I would wear the necklace to work and jazz up some of my dresses & tops!

    Well, since I live in the Houston area, my go to place for a short trip is Seaside!!!!! I love Deja Vu!! I would wear my black maxi dress and let the tassel shine against the black!!!

    For a 48 hour break nothing beats a quick trip up to Sonoma. Wine, beautiful views, amazing food and time to recharge and relax! Would pair it with jeans; brown tall riding boots and a red tailored Oxford.

    Oh I love this necklace! The classic simplicity, but still unique enough! 48 hours alone with my husband for a trip? I think we would drive up the California coast through wine country. I have never done that and have always wanted to. This would be perfect because we love to drive together (probably because that means our 3 little ones are all safe in their seats and can’t go anywhere) and talk. So to be able to drive ALONE together through Napa and Sonoma and along the Pacific Coast Highway sounds like a dream. I think we would have to rent a convertible to enjoy this trip to its fullest…don’t you think? :)

    The Salamander Resort in Middleburg, Virginia. It is the epitome of equestrian chic set in the Virginia Hunt Country. The resort is new and fresh, the spa amazing, the horse stables beautiful and the adorable town of Middleburg is a short walk. I’d wear my tassel necklace with riding boots, a navy blazer and jeans to enjoy a fun cocktail in the lounge before having dinner!

    Love this necklace.
    If I had 48 hours for a trip I would love to go to a beach in the South Americas. Just 48 hours of sun, sea, warmth. Enough time to read a book and drink and eat good food.
    I would wear this necklace to jazz up all my light spring sweaters and jeans

    A 48 hour vacation to anywhere warm, my heart longs for Hawaii this time of year! I’d wear the necklace with some of my ‘plainer’ maternity dresses to jazz them up — the black sleeveless one; with flip-flops of course.

    I lived in Wrightsville Beach off the coast of North Carolina for a year near Wilmington. Lots of great restaurants in this historic area also known as “Hollywood East”. I think I’d visit this area again and wear a sleeveless maxi dress perhaps a simple black or other classic color with a great pair of Tori Burch sandals. The necklace would make the perfect accessory.

    My favorite place to vacation is Seaside, FL. I would wear it out to dinner to my favorite cafe, the Southern Cafe, with a maxi dress & wedge sandals.

    Oh gosh. At first, I thought, “Go big or go home!” — Bali!

    But then, I don’t know…I live in Charleston, which is already the perfect place, but what impresses me is how many wonderful little jewels exist all around us and we don’t realize it.
    Recently we attended a family wedding and stayed at the Jekyll Island Club Hotel. I thought I’d been to Jekyll before, but apparently I hadn’t. The history not only of the resort but the island is absolutely fascinating, and now I’m happily buried in research-I-don’t-have-time for, reading books and doing searches on the area. And I feel like there’s just so much out there to see, not halfway across the world, but within a few hours or even an hour of all of us, just waiting to be discovered.

    I live on the central coast of CA, so for a quick vacay I would choose San Francisco. My husband and I love it there! In CA it’s important to layer – so jeans, long sleeve shirt, blazer/jacket, comfy flats for walking, and a scarf or fun necklace like this one.

    Honestly, I’ve had a hankering to go to Florida recently. I’d love to visit Seaside or go down the coast to Marco Island … or even Key West at some point! I would wear this necklace with a flow-y mint green top and dark colored skinny jeans. I also have a simple black dress that the necklace would compliment wonderfully. Thank you for the chance to win!

    Goodbye Oregon, Hello Charleston Place Hotel. I’d wear that gorgeous necklace with a black, sleeveless, organza dress to dinner at Poogan’s Porch (truffled mac and cheese please). Then I’d wear it with jeans, t-shirt and wedges as we headed north for lunch at the Hopseewee Plantation Teahouse in Georgetown SC. I’d end the day at Bistro 217 in Pawley’s Island for their famous shrimp jalepeno bisque while wearing that lovely tassel with my embroidered tunic and linen skirt. When can we go? :)

    Adore this necklace. I have been trying to find the perfect longer white necklace that can dress up a casual outfit or make a simple statement to go out on the town.

    I would love to wear this amazing piece with a vintage, natural linen w red embroidery, dress of my mothers- the piece was from a girls trip that she took to Mexico back in the 70s. After her passing, I discovered this gem of a dress while cleaning out her house… If my husband and I were to go away right now- we would go to Kiawah Island, SC and stay at the Sanctuary. Its the perfect getaway! It’s where we got married and it our anniversary April 9th. 9 years- 2 children later we are lovin’ life.

    My oldest son is getting married in less than three weeks and this necklace would look so pretty with my long taffeta skirt and satin top! I would love to go to Philadelphia (where the wedding will take place) 48 hours ahead of the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner, slow time down and relax with my husband, spend some precious time with my son and future daughter-in-law and drink in the many delights that Philly has to offer.

    My husband and I are celebrating our 18th anniversary next week! Dinner reservations are already made for one of our local Birmingham favorites, Highlands Bar & Grill. Chef/Owner Frank Stitt and I serve together on the board of non-profit Jones Valley Teaching Farm. Even better? He’s a fellow chicken owner!
    So, to dinner I’d wear this sexy necklace with a classic Little Black Dress and black heels. I’d get my sweet 15-year-old daughter to fashion me an alluring up-do and pair the necklace with traditional pearl earrings. And if I’m lucky, my husband will surprise me with some other piece of jewelry to pair with this gorgeous pearl tassel necklace!

    Oh, this is the most perfect necklace to wear on a 48 hour getaway to New York City! This necklace would go with any outfit–to dress up a tshirt and jeans during the day, and a blouse and blazer in the evening. So classic, but fresh. :)

    Whoops! p.s.- I’d wear it with a simple, classically cut sundress, maybe in a faded salmon shade. Or navy. I also love the idea of it with jeans and black tee, and bright or metallic Tieks.
    And how cool that someone said she’d wear it on her wedding day? I can totally see it working with a a very simply cut dress, great fabric. I can totally see it going a little funky, like with this Carol Hannah Whitfield:

    I’m going to Paris soon and I think this would be such a versatile piece. It’s a great way to dress up an outfit of jeans, a blazer, a striped tank , and boots for strolling around museums. And then to snazzy up a striped dresses with a blazers and heels for a dinner at Tour d ‘ Argent. Such a make or break piece!

    If I had a 48 hour vacation, I would travel from my home in North Carolina to Seattle to surprise my beautiful and beloved 7 year old granddaughter and my daughter. With the physical distance, REAL hugs and kisses are too far apart in time. I would wear the necklace with an emerald green dress to our favorite restaurant where I would lure them for the surprise visit via a friend. Who better to wear such a fabulous statement piece for than someone you love the most? Oh, goodness, i can see it in in my mind’s eye! Ciao, Dee (alias Grammie Dee)

    Love this necklace! I think it would look great with almost anything, but I would probably wear it with my mint green jeans, white t-shirt, black and white linen jacket and maybe cute red flats. My choice always for a quick weekend away is the 30-A beaches…can’t be beat!

    I love it’s absolute versatility, so it would be THE ONE ACCESSORY for a carry-on-only weekend away. I’d go somewhere – anywhere! – by the sea and wear it with a sundress and sandals by day and with a classic cocktail dress by night. It looks beachy, like an octopus, feminine with its length, and classic with the pearls – perfect!

    First – what a beautiful piece of jewelry!

    A quaint bed and breakfast in a picturesque area of New England sounds like a sweet and romantic getaway, cocooned in the beautiful landscape and surrounded by many historical places. I envision wearing this on a quiet evening out, complete with a white T-shirt, cropped jacket, skinnies and the perfect peep-toe heel.

I now have one close to me in Fairhope, AL! I love the pearl tassel necklace with Chambray! So cute! Would love to wear that for Easter!

    I love, love, love this beautifully chic necklace. I would escape with my husband to Durango, Colorado where we went for our honeymoon 18 years ago and then drive over to Telluride. It would be heaven to be alone in with my hubby without our boys pulling us a million different directions. I would wear the awesome tassel necklace with my new coral colored linen dress and of course it goes great with a black Tshirt and m dark skinny jeans paired with leopard flats.

    I would go to Charleston for my 48 hour vacay. The dining, shopping, and nightlife choices are endless and fantastic. And I would wear this necklace with my navy pleated maxi skirt and a Kelly green blouse. Why oh why did I not order this right away when I saw it on your instagram?? Please re-stock this DejaVu, it is a must have!

    It’s so wonderful to day dream! I would head off to the Napa Valley! I’ve never been and have been dying to go! And since this girl wears pears all the time, (I have been known to wear them with sweatshirts back in the day) I would probably put that necklace with a black tee, white jeans and sit back and sip some wine! Great giveaway!

There is a lovely B&B that has rooms that have a wonderful view of the Pacific Ocean. A candlelight dinner – who could ask for more? Thanks for the give away.

    Being in law-school leaves no time for actual vacationing but plenty of time for day dreaming. If I could take a 48 hour vacation anywhere it would be to Paris, France. Cliche, I know. But when I think of pearls I think Paris. What better way to wear this necklace than with some dark jeans, a simple blouse or cotton tee, with a blazer draped over your shoulder while aimlessly wandering through the louvre until you find your way to the Sculpture Garden. White marble statutes and a pearl tassel necklace, does life get any better…only in day dreams.

    Thanks!

I’d wear the necklace with cropped skinny jeans, a crisp white shirt and my funky polka dotted Anthro jacket (and some fun navy wedges.)

    48 hours is just enough for the Grand Hotel on Mackinac (if it’s summer & we’re heading north) or Naples (if it’s STILL winter!) and at either spot would pair it with a tunic, skinny white Bermudas & my favorite Sam Eddleman ballet flats.

I’d throw in a few strands of turquoise-perfect for shopping in the quaint town or farmers market. I’d dress it up in the evening with a LBD and shorter strands of crystal for a night out. I’d follow that up on Sunday with a jean shirtdress and flat sandals, paired with a baseball cap. I just love the versatility!
