Hello everyone!

Thanks for visiting my blog today.  A while back, my Mother-in-law and I had Christmas tea at The Paris Apartment in Knoxville, Tennessee. It’s a beautiful store filled with items bought personally from Paris, France.  I have always had a love for sunflowers so when I saw this necklace, I just had to have it!  The necklace is copper and orange in color and, in my opinion, is very fashion forward, but so are the French!  It’s a heavy piece which speaks to its quality, but it is not too difficult to wear.

I was trying to find a place to wear it when my husband and I got an invitation to a party for last year’s Kentucky Derby.  It seemed like the perfect occasion!  I wore it with a black Calvin Klein dress and Stuart Weitzman wedge heels and, of course, a Derby hat to match the necklace.  The photo below is of me in front of my car before the Kentucky Derby Party with my necklace and hat on!
