Polly Want a Cracker?

I've never had a pet parrot, nor do I want one (how can you cuddle with a parrot?). Thus the J. Crew parrot pendant is probably the closest I'll come to having one as a pet, unless I become a pirate. Something I can't explain inside of me was drawn to this parrot pendant when it first came out from J.Crew. It looks like something you might discover in your grandma's costume jewelry box and play dress up with or something you might find at a flea market, which makes the piece sort of vintage cool. I wasn't going to pay full price for the thrill of owning this parrot, so when it came up as $15 during the J. Crew extra 40% off sale, I thought I could shell out that amount to take home by new feathered friend. 

I would assume that parrots also love melons, so this J. Crew no. 2 pencil skirt in Melon is the perfect pairing. The whole ensemble makes me feel very fresh and tropical, which is perfect for summer!

While the photos below are basically the same, the one difference would be the blowing wind creating a Botticelli-esque effect with my hair. I actually really need to get a hair cut (many split ends), as it's been almost a year since my last one.

Outfit: Shirt: J. Crew Raindrop Lace top, Skirt: J. Crew no. 2 pencil skirt in Melon, Shoes: CL Simple pumps in nude, Necklace and bracelets: J.Crew, Bag: J. Crew Edie in Casablanca Blue, Belt: J.Crew Factory in Rose Gold ($7!)


  1. I really like this entire outfit and that parrot necklace is so fun!

    1. Thank you Lisa! I'm glad I was able to get the parrot at such a great price!


Say hello to Hello Katie! I would love to hear from you!
