Orange maxi skirt and carnelian necklace

Embroidered orange maxi skirt

You have seen all the things in this outfit before, in different combinations. So, nothing actually new today, except for the necklace. It is made from cornelian, I like the rich orange colour of this stone. And it happens to match with that of the skirt. Cornelian has been a favourite protective stone since the days of ancient Egypt when it was a preferred gem for making the heart-shaped amulets that gave it its name (from the Latin for heart cor). The ancient Greeks believed that the carnelian could satisfy all the heart's desires and Muslims called it the Mecca stone since it could make wishes come true. It is also believed that if placed under a pillow it will bring happy dreams. So many nice qualities though I bought it just because of its beautiful colour.

Cornelian necklace

The skirt is of thin light cotton and the bottom part is decorated with some embroidery. The top is of cotton jersey with chiffon sleeves that have slits in the middle (you can see a close up here). A very easy combination to wear and very comfy to be in.

  11. The necklace is beautiful and the perfect compliment to the rest of the outfit. I need to find a carnelian necklace as special as that one. I love all the different hues in yours. And such sweet detailing on the bag too.

  12. The sort of burnt orange color of that maxi skirt makes it even prettier. And that necklace plus wearing crean with it, worked out perfectly!
