I like Big Bows

There’s something kind of obnoxious but still really awesome about wearing a big giant bow. You feel crazy girly and also kind of just crazy all at once. Some people stop and stare, in both positive and negative ways but I really don’t mind, after all I like wearing a big giant bow despite the attention it may bring.IMG_6739IMG_6660IMG_6647

It’s no secret that bows are kind of my thing, but it can be hard to wear them in a semi chic way without looking totally bananas – I hope I kind of sort of achieved that by pairing a large girly-skirt with a tight fitting bodice and scrappy sandals. Together, this crazy girl look was perfect for a Sunday of brunch with some of my favorite blogger babesIMG_6703

#tbt – Lacoste

23rd April 2015

IMG_6466Okay, don’t hate me but Thursday is actually my favorite day of the work week (yep, even over Friday… I know, I’m bananas) and today I’ll tell you why!IMG_6362IMG_6317If I had a super power, it would totally be time travel … well that and the ability to generate sprinkles with my mind, but that’s another story. How could would it be to go to a sock hop in the fifties, tease your hair to increase your height in the eighties or hang out with your grandma as a teenager… the answer? so cool. Well, I can’t exactly time travel (yetstay tuned) but for now, I can kind of sort of travel back into time every Thursday.. oh according to instagram, throw back Thursday.IMG_6352So I don’t know who started this whole #tbt thing (that’s throw back Thursday, get it?), but we should totalllly be besties, because they’re probably my favorite person. Not only do I love seeing ugly childhood photos and sharing baby photos of Waffles. To power me through the work day, I tune to some serious #tbt jams like Britney pre-buzz cut and all of those awesome 90’s boy bands we swore to marry (move over One Direction … no jk, you’re awesome and I love you). If you wan’t to jam along, I created a super-cool playlist sure to give you flashbacks to puppet-inspired music videos, platform shoes and my personal favorite, guys with spiked hair & bleach blonde highlights. I also take the #tbt theme a bit further. I’ve been known to challenge myself fashion wise on thursdays, but taking an old or out of trend piece and trying to make it current, wearing something vintage or just paying homage to fashion heritage – which is the case for today!

check out the playlist hereIMG_6259IMG_6440Lacoste has the ultimate #tbt campaign going on, where they use old ads and vintage marketing media to crazy cool clothing! The result – is refreshing, modern and yet surpassingly timeless, but I’ve come to expect nothing less from this iconic brand. Furthermore, I kind of sort of love when history mega-brands take a nod to where they’ve been as the propel in the future, way to go Lacoste! Here’s a look at the vintage pieces in the L!ve line…

IMG_6301

I love a good graphic tee, but went a little gaga for this ah-mazing screen printed sweatshirt (and so did my boyfriend, he actually asked to wear it to work the day after I shot this hah). It’s crazy cute with a fitted mini, and I played with print a bit by pairing camo for a fun & flirty twist and finished the look with sporty accessories.IMG_6398

SWEATSHIRT: Lacoste LIve Vinatge Sweatshirt
SKIRT: Similar Camo Pencil Skirt (another option here)
SUNNIES: Foldable (and awesome) ray bans that I can’t stop wearing

I consider myself kind of a creative person, I mean you have to be a little bit bananas to pair stripes with leopard and turn your dresses into skirts but that can’t be all crazy, it has to be a little bit creative… right?FullSizeRensder

Anyways, whatever creativity I have, I can’t touch this talent – so today I wanted to share some of the amazing art and fashion illustrations of me (and waffles) out there as a little thank you to the talented artists who created them – thank you for making me look skinnier, stand taller and smile bigger I am so flattered that you choose to sketch me!

The flowers are blooming, birds are chirping and everything is just so dang beautiful I really can’t take it … resulting in most mornings spent dancing and singing off-key through my neighborhood, I hope my neighbors don’t mind. Anyways, one of the best parts of spring?

I’m so crazy obsessed with the slightly off-the-shoulder-meets-boat-neck nature of this dress, plus the exploded floral print gives a modern twist to a betty-draper-esque silhouette! To play with the larger-than-life floralness going on here, I had to shoot with my new favorite apartment accessory – these giant red roses!spring style what to wear for springg ootd spring outfit spring look style blogger black fashion blogger the best fashion blogger fashion blogger to follow the blonde salad sincerely jules gal meets glam pink peoniescolor me courtney color me courtney color me courtney colormecourtney.com colormecourtney.com colormecourtney.com new york fashion blogger new york fashion blogger new york fashion blog spring style spring ootd spring look of the day what to wear for spring spring style blogger sun dress floral sun dress floral sun dress floral dress fifties dress retro dress floral retro dress floral retro sun dress floral dress floral spring dress white floral dress midi dressSo remember my earlier allergy comment?

It’s Festival Season, Yo

18th April 2015

00000260It’s festival season, and we all know what that means crop tops & flower crowns galore… Barf.0000032300000342So if my full-skirt obsession and high heal habits didn’t convince you, now I’m making it real clear – I’m not really a festival-season-kinda-gal. I’m more Blaire Waldorf, and less, ehh ke$ha lol. It’s not that I don’t love a good flower crown (okay that’s kind of the reason) it’s just that I’m not really into the whole, hippie,-dippie carefree, boho, let’s do peyote kind-of-thin (am I way off here? what really goes on at Coachella) plus the idea of camping out in the desert for a week with lots of sand and little (to no) showers kind of gives me the heebie jeebies – I need my hot water yo! But the kinda cool thing about Coachella, South by Southwest and all of those other desert-based festivals (confession, that’s about all I know and I only learned what SxSW was this year when I received brand invites lolz) is that now fashion so such a huge part of them – so that’s pretty freaking rad.00000330I’m not sure when we decided a music was the “new hip opportunity” to debut a brands new fashion collection, but I kind of dig it. I think it’s a cool time to interact with customers on a new level and a way for brands to really resonate with their target market, or even their not-so-target market in a relaxed and modern setting. Okay, enough with the marketing mumbo jumbo (is my MBA showing?) festival season also gives you an excuse to go food truck cray, channel your inner rave goddess, become a glow stick pro and if you really have to, wear a flower crown in public without being scrutinized, but rather worshiped like some kind of Coachella queen of the desert… So am I going to Coachella this year? No, will I next year? Don’t quote me on it, but no, probably not… But can I get on board with ditching my bra for a bikini and embracing two day old hair, oh heck yeah I just don’t know why I have to flight across the country to get in on this action?0000029500000262For this festival-esqe look I turned to aerie & American eagle, because they have a little bit of that boho vibe without being too bananas about it. Plus I love their continuous nods to their American heritage without throwing it in your face like “omg American flag”, we get it, you’re an american brand but we don’t need to swallow stars and stripes to get your point across… anyways, I’m rambling, but they do it in a subtle and stylish way. So when I needed “festival fashion”, they were the perfect partner for creating this chillaaxxeddd look – that’s perfect for Coachella or just somewhere coastal (ps is it summer yet?). A girly-Lacey bikini in a fun pop of color, prevented me from wearing a bra (score) while providing a little color pop when layered under a flowy poncho-sweater-scarf-shall-hybrid that I won’t be taking off until Fall … okay, Winter! I paired it with basic distressed denim shorts, an easy basic and must have for Spring/summer before adding studded sandals, a crocheted backpack and black sunnies. Oh and so you could still recognize me, I added a bright orange lip ;)0000032100000334You may have noticed my hair grew a bit ;) how very perceptive of you! Since I was already challenging chillax-Courtney, who lives in Palm Springs, dances at dawn, designs sunglasses by day, DJs by night, lives off coconut water, almonds, pineapples and kale, has three secret tattoos and an adopted pet elephant named Alister (whoa, she sounds awesome), she also hasn’t cut her hair in three years, but has no split ends and loves a good fish tale… Braid that is. Anyways, if you’re more like the realll Color Me Courtney you’ll usually see here, a New York based mess of a 20-something with a short hair don’t care attitude, you can achieve chillax-Courtney’s look with clip in extensions and a messy fishtale braid! Are you guys into this look? Maybe I’ll post a tutorial soon?!0000035900000336

Confession – posts like this always make me really nervous when I showcase a different side of my style or sometimes a total alter ego (yah, I’m kind of a style schizophrenic, so what) I never know what you guys are going to think or how you’ll respond (where’s that dang monkey-covering-the-eyes-emoji when you need it!!) Anyways I would totally love if you weighed in below, do you love chillax courtney’s style, just kind of like it or are you totally not into it but would still probably sit next to her on the school bus… as long as she showered after her week long desert dancing tour…. either way, I WANNA KNOW! Okay that is all, byezzz

If you blog and have a full time job, you probably know the feeling, when you’re just overwhelmed in all aspects and can’t feel like you can’t give 100% in anything – it’s super frustrating especially if you’re a perfectionist. There are a few ways to get through it, take a night off and spend it with a friend (Waffles and I had the best time with Olivia and her puppy Batman tonight, it really helped me unwind), binge watch dance moms, eat your weight in pie… or donuts or both or the healthier option is to think of your happy place – I know, I just can’t help myself with a ll the corny-ness tonight, but really it works!shes quick and curious and playful and strong striped dress color me courtney fashion blog spring style fashion blogger to follow follow this fashion blogger what fashion blogger should you follow fashion blogger follow fashion blogger to follow fashion blogger to follow color me courtney spring fashion blogger spring fashion blogger shes quick and curious and playful and strong striped dress color me courtney fashion blog spring style fashion blogger to follow follow this fashion blogger what fashion blogger should you follow fashion blogger follow fashion blogger to follow fashion blogger to follow color me courtney spring fashion blogger spring fashion blogger color me courtney color me courtney color me courtney colormecourtney colormecourtney.com color me courtney blog orange oranges oranges stripes striped dress stripe spring dress panama hat how to wear a panama hat stripe dress stripe bow dress stripe bow stress bow stripe dress searsucker dress sear sucker dress stripe dresscolor me courtney color me courtney color me courtney colormecourtney colormecourtney.com color me courtney blog orange oranges oranges stripes striped dress stripe spring dress panama hat how to wear a panama hat stripe dress stripe bow dress stripe bow stress bow stripe dress searsucker dress sear sucker dress stripe dress

So yes, this looks like one white floral dress, it’s actually two pieces (I know, bananas right?). although I could have totally invested in the perfect white floral dress, it would also be super limiting. Yeah I could wear it with a denim jacket and flats, or as is but it would look pretty much he same every time. But, with a floral top and skirt combo, you can wear the skirt with a striped crop top, white tank or even a cute graphic tee for something whimsical & fun, and you can try the tee with white jeans, distressed denim or a little bit f leopard for some pattern play.color me courtney color me courtney colormecourtney colormecourtney.com fashion blogger spring outfit spring dress spring style white floral floral dress cute spring floral dress spring floral white spring dress spring style what to wear for spring white floral spring midi skirt how to wear floral floral for spring white spring floral black fashionblogger best fashion blogger style blogger best fashion style bloggers fashion bloggers black fashion blogger black fashion style blogger style bloggers black fashion bloggers colormecourtney.com fashion blogger black fashion bloger spring style spring trends floral trends floral for spring spring pastels pastel tend spring springs 2015 what to wear for spring 2015 floral for spring 2015 spring 2015 spring 15 spring style spring fashion spring style spring style trends midi skirt floral midi skirt white floral midi skirt cherry blossoms cherry blossom midi skirt color me courtney fashion bloggercolormecourtney.com fashion blogger black fashion bloger spring style spring trends floral trends floral for spring spring pastels pastel tend spring springs 2015 what to wear for spring 2015 floral for spring 2015 spring 2015 spring 15 spring style spring fashion spring style spring style trends midi skirt floral midi skirt white floral midi skirt cherry blossoms cherry blossom midi skirt color me courtney fashion bloggerAlthough I love how white looks, I am a total clutzilla and usually end up destroying it… whoops!

Weekends are For Exploring

10th April 2015

IMG_3290     … and Pizza, okay mostly Pizza.IMG_3342Weekends are for brunch, or bagels (or sometimes both). My perfect saturday starts with Murrays bagels and Walking Waffles (preferably in bare legs, come on Spring, get it together), aside from eating, I really don’t care what else we do – but I usually want a “real meal” (aka a blogger brunch that I spend 5 min gramming before eating and anger my brunch dates with) a few hours later. Some saturdays I stroll down 5th ave to max out my credit card, but I usually crawl back into bed post brunch & blog while catching up on TV from the week.IMG_3304

Sundays are another story, I usually sleep in longer than I should, and when the weather is warm enough I like to take Waffles on a long walk through the west village or stop by the dog park (I went last week with Olivia and her frenchie, Batman – check out her blog here). Sometimes we will do a little museam hopping or I head up town to meet my bestie Sheree on the upper west side for a girl date. Oh and as for brunch, I try not to go out and spend my rent money on avocado toast two days in a row, but sometimes a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do.IMG_3327This weekend it’s supposed to be mid sixties and sunnies in NYC (finally) so as long as I didn’t totally just jinx it, here are 5 things to do this weekend.

    Screen Shot 2015-04-10 at 1.01.56 AM
1. Wander around the West Village - because the west village is the best village – shop bleecker street, grab a cupcake at magnolias and if you’re feeling really touristy you can pop onto the “carrie bradshaw” stoop and take a photo (see mine here)

Screen Shot 2015-04-10 at 12.57.03 AM
2. Museum Hop – I love making a day of it at one museum, but visiting three to five in one day for a few hours each is way more fun. My favorite is the Met, not sure why but If you go you’ll have to check out the rooftop. I also really love the museum of natural history (because dinosaurs, duh) and getting to quote little tiny Owen Wilson from Night at the Museum always makes a trip more fun.

Screen Shot 2015-04-10 at 12.57.11 AM
3. Brunch – oh hey, did you know i love brunch? My favorite spots are The Smile (where I always go with my good friend Cal), and the new Jacks Wife Freda in the West Village. Plus is you’re planning on gramming, Jacks has the best lighting… and yes, you can totally judge me for knowing these things.

Screen Shot 2015-04-10 at 12.57.23 AM
4. Build a fort – because being seven is so much more fun than being twenty something, and NYC apartments are basically the size of a refrigerator box, so you’re basically half way there! The best way to spend a Saturday night after a long day out, is by staying in. Get a movie, pull out all of your sheets, grab your bestie, some flowers (for ambiance… duh) and start building. My best friend, Sheree and I love to try and fail at fort building – I’m no architect but I can build a mean living room teepee ;)

Screen Shot 2015-04-10 at 12.56.52 AM
5. Get lost – take the train to a new (but safe) neighborhood that you never go to – I’m really bad about making it up town so I would go exploring on the upper east or west side – and just explore. Wander up and down the tree lined streets, try out a little coffee shop or two and google any cool buildings you come upon. Oh and if you want to get reaaaal deep on me, jam to some Chet Baker or something magical while you’re doing it – you’ll think you’re in a movie, I promise

Lets be real, I work full time in addition to running this bad boy, so a good 95% of my weekends are spent blogging (and the other 5% usually involves brunching, all captured on instagram) but that doesn’t mean I don’t totally live for the weekends. Although I generally enjoy working in fashion from 9-5 (errr 9-8) I love running Color Me Courtney, so although the weekends are filled with “work” it doesn’t always feel like it, when you’re doing what you love. Anyways, if you do something fun this weekend, tell me so I can live vicariously!

Denim & Joggers

10th April 2015

Courtney A    Yo, I’m kind of totally obsessed with joggers right now (and yes, I kind of totally just started this blog post with “Yo”) so today I’ve teamed up with L’amour by Nanette Lepore (from JCP) to share a casually-chic look from their darling line. Courtney CI’ve been sleeping less and less lately (too much work, too little time) as a result, my outfits have been getting comfier and comfier and I’m really not sorry about it. As a result, comfy joggers that basically feel like Pajamas while still being in style have quickly become my BFFL Jill. Mine are a crazy steal from JCP, where you can pick up so many amazingly affordable spring styles.Courtney D2With Joggers, You can totally dress them up with heels & fun clutch, or down with sneakers and a cool graphic tee, today I did a little of both – pairing a statement striped tank under a cool leather & denim jacket for a casual vibe but bringing a little glam with lace up heels & a little leopard.Courtney FWearing L’amour by Nanette Lepore for JCPenny Jogger Cargo Pants & Denim/Leather Jacket
