Layered Surprise

Casual Friday

In case you missed the Internet on Monday, there was a crazy moon thing on Sunday. A lunar eclipse/bloodmoon to be exact. Jason and I went out to Chicago’s Adler planetarium and he rented a fancy lens to take photos of the moon over the lake.

And there were clouds. And we almost went home. But then the layers of clouds passed and we were treated to a perfect view.


When you’re going to be out near the lake in Chicago, even in the summer, it makes sense to also dress in layers. You just never know when a cool breeze is going to blow in.


But, when you take off the layers you want something of interest to stick around.

Which is where my brand new necklace comes into the equation!

I was at the Randolph Street Market on Friday evening and Saturday morning as part of the Editors and Designers Choice for Charity and I saw this awesome booth that was displaying all her jewelry and scarfs on white t-shirts. I thought it was such a great idea that I gave her my award for Best Booth. And then bought this necklace because I couldn’t stop thinking about it!

I promptly wore the necklace two days in a row. Yes, it’s a little Mr. T but, you know, I don’t really care. It makes for a great layered surprise.

    I had never thought of layering my jewelry to give different effects as my sweaters and vests come off. GREAT idea! As for the blood moon, it was perfectly clear here, yup, we watched it.
    Jason got some awesome photos. He’s a keeper. LOL

    Those photos are AMAZING! I was hoping to catch a glimpse of the moon, but when I looked outside it was cloudy, so I gave up pretty quickly. Not that my neighborhood could hold a candle to lakefront viewing, anyway, of course. I’m glad you guys were able to see it!
