DIY Pearl Necklace & OOTD

I've had this single long strand of pearls laying around for a while now. I used to double it up and wear it as a long necklace but I'm not a huge fan of long necklaces anymore so it hasn't gotten any love in a while. I decided to make it into a shorter, multi-strand necklace after seeing this tutorial on P.S I Made This. It was ridicuously easy. I just folded the necklace in half and tied a ribbon to each side and then tied them together in a bow. You could even add a broach to it to dress it up a bit.



Pink Sweater- Old Navy (old)
Jeans- Abercrombie & Fitch
Leopard Flats- Charlotte Russe
Bracelet- Forever 21 (as seen here)

I've had this sweater forever but I just recently rediscovered it and I realized something- I need more pink in my closet! I have been buying so much black, white, gray, and blue lately. I need to switch it up and add some bright colors to my wardrobe. I loved this sweater so much that -I'm afraid to admit this but-I bought it in four, yes you read that right 4 different colors (red, eggplant, pink, and teal)! Have you ever loved a piece of clothing so much that you bought more than one? Or am I the only crazy person that does this?
