{style} understated statements in Central Park

For me the weekends are totally for comfort, but it's also the perfect time to start experimenting with some of my favorite pieces.  When I chose to just throw on an easy cable knit sweater that I've been dying to wear, I knew it was the perfect time to take this MAJOR gold leaf necklace out as obviously, it is enough on it's own.

So what to do when you want to make a statement?  You try to make understatements with the rest of the outfit - easy, neutral pieces.  The other addition to add some 'luxe' to this ensemble was the bag.  You see, this was a purchase I fell in love with immediately + couldn't resist about 6 years ago.  The problem was that since it is such a subtle leather, it started to get dirty and I stopped using it, being sent away into the top of my closet never to be seen.  

I recently gave it a good spa day at the Leather Spa and, while I am still contemplating keeping or selling it, I figured a daytime brunch + stroll through the park was the perfect re-debut!
