Spring Separates

25th February 2015

IMG_0347 The full skirt & crop top combo has to be one of my favorite, pair that with some print mixing and a little red lip action and you have a classic Color Me Courtney look, just like the one I’m sharing with you today!IMG_0361IMG_0333So its no secret that I’m kinda of sorta of really ready for Spring (did you see yesterday’s post?) and my trip last weekend to my home state of Arizona only confirmed what I had been thinking all along – why isn’t it warm yet. Anyways, during my trip I got to meet the lovely Caitlin of A little Dash of Darling, my favorite AZ based blog – I loved stopping by her Guess Event with Marie Claire, and wore this printed/striped combo for the evening!IMG_0365The event took place at Scottsdale Fashion Square, so I had to swing by some of my Mall favorites including Z Gallerie (I’ve been obsessing over this couch) and the mall’s new DVF… where I found and bonded with this darling pink Sofa that I kind of need in my apartment – please Paris (boyfriend), pleeaassee. Since I was there with my Bestie, Whitney my lounge sesh quickly turned into a little photo shoot ended with the Sales Person saying “Can you like not put your like shoes on the sofa….” haha oops, sorry.IMG_0373

SHOP THE LOOKS



Over the next few weeks, I’m going to share a few Springy looks that I wore/shot while I was enjoying the 75 degree weather in Arizona last week (see some of the highlights on instagram), despite the currently frostbite situation happening outside my front door (I literally got a brain freeze walking to work yesterday morning, like getting punished for eating a pint of mint chocolate chip ice cream… without getting to enjoy the actual ice cream #ripoff … how is it that cold).IMG_0350

Winter Pastels

24th February 2015

IMG_9115  So… is it Spring yet???IMG_9112With Spring right around the corner but still seriously out of sight I have resorted to wearing pretty pastels in wintery ways to get me through! I was totally into the whole winter wonderland thing for a while (being from Arizona, I have learned to appreciate seasons) but that ended abruptly the day fashion week came to a close. Now it is just too dang cold and I am pretty much sick of all my coats, so I don’t care what that ground hog’s shadow did or didn’t tell him, Spring needs to hurry on up and come visit me in NYC.IMG_9133Speaking of visits, these photos were taken by one of my three best friends. Fun fact – I have a super awesome girl group full of the worlds most amazing best friends, one lives in NYC with me but two are back in Utah (boo). Anyways, the darling Kristin came to visit when we shot these looks! I was so happy to see her (but kind of mad she didn’t bring warmer weather) so I had to dress in cotton candy dream colors that totally reflect her personality – effervescent, bubbly, bright and whimsical. Love you ro!IMG_9221IMG_9109

Speaking of spring (if we keep talking about it maybe it will come) piperlime is currently having a crazy sale and offering an additional 30% off all sale or 50% off final sale … heck yeah! I hand picked some of my favorite transitional items that totally work as a layered piece now but can also be reinvented again come Spring… Happy Shopping!

Would you like fries with that?

20th February 2015

IMG_0139So one day during fashion week I skipped lunch to hop off to shows… so naturally, I decided to wear my fries on my sleeve… well sweater, because that’s almost as good as eating them – almost….IMG_0112
Not sure if it’s awesome or awkward that I wore a fast-food-inspired sweater to fashion week, where most models (And some bloggers) obviously forgo fries in support of their thin figures – and no, that was not a stab I totally support girls with enough will power to say no to fries, but I will never be one of those gals so when you ask if I would like fries with that, I will always say yes… or in this case point to my sweater.IMG_0129This “bear bomber” that I’m wearing over my outfit helped keep me kind of warm, but in general I was freezing. If you’re residing in NYC, this look probably shouldn’t be recreated until March, but if you choose to bare the cold, wear leggings rolled up under your midi skirt like I did… just try not to twirl ;)IMG_0124

Posh Rebel – NYFW

19th February 2015

IMG_0204Peace out #NYFW! Yesterday was the final day of Fashion Week in New York and I ended it with one of the most exciting shows – Nanette Lepore’s Posh Rebel Collection. I really enjoying shows like hers because they are always equal parts inspiring and relatable, clothes that get me excited for the upcoming seasons and pieces that I can actually wear (and afford, well kinda) plus it’s always great to see a show that doesn’t take place at Lincoln Center!Clifford-New-York-Fashion-Week-Fall-2015-February-2015-Nanette-Lepore_122736rs_1024x759-150218160940-1024-4NYFW-Bestlooks-day6_copyAccording to Nanette, “A posh rebel is a woman who’s pushing her way out there in the world and making things happen” … well, she sounds awesome and the collection totaled oozed posted-rebel-ness (yeah I’m making up words now), the girls who would rock these looks are brave, bold and not afraid to take what they want in life – I know a few crazy amazing women like that who basically need this collection in their lives.10958064_704084626367589_492219921_nImage via instagram11005146_1060760467274496_1977399068_nvia instagramIMG_0201   Nanette Lepore’s cool “Posh Rebel” collection didn’t disappoint (well does it ever?) with seventies vibes reinvented in newer, chicer ways with a free-spiriited vibe and unexpected color (like this awesome pumpkin-esque orange look that I am kind of crazy over). She kept it carefree with pops of print and flowy frocks paired with tailored jackets, plus there were a few mini’s to die for and some unexpected embellishments for that extra something special! 10986213_1540650912890902_711535738_nImage via instagram11005069_1559018491040014_1063871875_nVia instagram

I’ll let you in on a secret, but as long as you run and tell everyone you know, kay? Nanette Lepore also has an awesome and more affordable line available at JCP say whattt?. The collection emphasizes color and movement, two signature styles of Nanette Lepore – plus its crazy affordable. This darling flowy pink cami that I am wore to the show, is actually L’amore by Nanette Leepore for JCP. it was a little early to bust out this spring statement piece, whoops, but i can’t wait to wear it again and again when things warm up for Spring with jeans, to work with a blazer or on the weekends with these awesome black cargo pants!IMG_0205

To the show, I wore a Nanette Leopre L’amor for JCP Flowy Pink Cami & a Varsity Jacket, get the same day cool vibe with this awesome leather/denim jacket situation

Big fat monster thanks to JCP, Nanette Lepore & Chictopia for sending me to the show, all opinions are my own.<3

Varsity Chic at NYFW

18th February 2015

IMG_0050 As fashion week is coming to an end (boo) I start to see some of my favorite trends emerging from the runway and just get crazy excited for Fall. One major runway trend (that I was actually afraid would be leaving us this year) was varsity chic. Today I’m talking all about this trend, while recapping what I wore to Tommy Hilfiger. Plus I’ll share why there is no shame in standing room only and talk about what I learned at the Art Institute show.tommy hilfiger fall 2015 tommy hilger fall 2015tommy hilfiger show fall 2015 tommy hilfiger fashion show fall 2015 tommy hilfiger fashion show febuary 2015 tommy hilfiger football fashion show tommy hilfiger 2015 tommy hilfiger anniversary show tommy hilfiger mbfw tommy hilfiger mercedes benz fashion week tommy hilfiger fashion week new york fashion week tommy hilfiger fall 2015 tommy hilger fall 2015tommy hilfiger show fall 2015 tommy hilfiger fashion show fall 2015 tommy hilfiger fashion show febuary 2015 tommy hilfiger football fashion show tommy hilfiger 2015 tommy hilfiger anniversary show tommy hilfiger mbfw tommy hilfiger mercedes benz fashion week tommy hilfiger fashion week new york fashion week One of my favorite shows during fashion week was Tommy Hilfiger show on Monday. Not only do they win the award for the coolest venue and earn serious points for going full out in theme, but I am just head over heels, eh cleats for the varsity-chic-vibes the show was broadcasting.  Models adorned fashion-focused jerseys and over-the-top varsity stripes as they stormed the football field to Hey Ya and Bootlicious. To top it all off, the traditional final walk was replaced with an epic final strut, Color Me Obsessed (seriously, what are you waiting for? Check out the video here… or else)tommy hilfiger fall 2015 tommy hilger fall 2015tommy hilfiger show fall 2015 tommy hilfiger fashion show fall 2015 tommy hilfiger fashion show febuary 2015 tommy hilfiger football fashion show tommy hilfiger 2015 tommy hilfiger anniversary show tommy hilfiger mbfw tommy hilfiger mercedes benz fashion week tommy hilfiger fashion week new york fashion week  tommy hilfiger fall 2015 tommy hilger fall 2015tommy hilfiger show fall 2015 tommy hilfiger fashion show fall 2015 tommy hilfiger fashion show febuary 2015 tommy hilfiger football fashion show tommy hilfiger 2015 tommy hilfiger anniversary show tommy hilfiger mbfw tommy hilfiger mercedes benz fashion week tommy hilfiger fashion week new york fashion week Hey guys, Standing Room Only is the new black, I promise! I get a lot of comments and emails about blogger who say they aren’t “cool enough” or “big enough” to get invited to shows – and I totally disagree. Guys, I’ll let you in on a secret, I have never been one of the cool kids – don’t let the red lipstick fool you, I am totally more “geek chic” than I am “home coming queen” and although Color Me Courtney continues to grow beyond my wildest dreams, I’ll never consider myself “cool enough” to get invited, just bold enough to ask… and sometimes beg. I send emails, I follow up and I borderline stalk my way into some shows – like Tommy Hilfiger – I’ve been trying to get an invite for two seasons now without success (#unpopular) but this year I finally made the cut… for standing room only! But there is no shame in standing room only, and Hey, sometimes it works out in your favor! My standing room only seat for Pamela Rowland was used to fill an open assigned seat right behind Mr. Jay Manuel, Mrs. J Alexander and Nigel freaking Barker – but of course I have no proof because my phone decided to die right as we all snuggled up for a #celfie… and you know how that goes, if it’s not on social media, it just didn’t happen… sad life.IMG_0046I really didn’t think any other show would get me as excited as the Tommy Hilfiger presentation (seriously, Lex and I almost cried #emotional) but the Art Institute show I attend last night with Refinery 29 got me inspired in an entirely different way. The show opened with a disabled model who was once paralyzed due to a rare immune disease and now slowly recovering walked the entire runway with her walker, it was amazing to see such strength from struggle combined with effortless fashion – it was truly heart wrenching and captivating, bravo.ddThe Art Institute selects a few prestigious students from different branches across the country (and even Canada) to showcase their work at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week – can you imagine? Showing at fashion week while you’re in college? BANANAS. During the show I tweeted out my astonishment that these students are conquering fashion week, while all I was able to conquer in college was in and out burger (and fries… and a milk shake… or two) on a daily basis… whatever, still no shame. See more images via their twitter here and instagram hereIMG_0030Oh andddd don’t tell the fashion Gods but I totally ended up rewearing this coat again to the AI show (say it with my this time – no shame) despite the inherent NYFW rules about rewearing…. what-ever (insert Amber voice and hand-configured-w-sign here) rules are for lame-o’s and breaking them is crazaay fun.IMG_0055

Okay, so now who’s ready for Fall? I kind of need EVERYTHING from the TH collection – okay, maybe two of everything… one for you one for me? yeah and maybe I’ll share… okay not likely, but maybe… yeah, no, never gonna happen ;) XO
IMG_0034Big thanks to Tommy Hilfiger for the show invite, and thanks to Refinery 29 and The Art Institute for sponsoring this post. As always, all opinions are my own…  Duh :)

I don’t talk about it much but in addition to blogging, I work full time for Coach in product development helping to produce handbags! As a result, fashion week is always a reaaal struggle because I have to juggle work & shows and sometimes miss some awesome events because I have to attend to my 9-5, boo. Anyways, I dabbled in a few events and shows thursday/friday night but for me, the real fashion week fun (and fails) started Saturday.black fashion blogger black fashion blogger style bloggers style bloggers to follow new york fashion blogger color me courtney new york fashion week color me courtney colormecourtney.com color me courtney color me courtney color me courtney blog marc by marc jacobs jerri rose jessi rose marc by marc jacobs rose print marc by marc jacobs fashion blogger new york fashion blogger fashion blogger nyfw fashion blogger new york fashion week nyfw mbfw mercedes benz fashion week February 2015 black fashion blogger nyc new york fashion blogger color me courtneycolor me courtney new york fashion week color me courtney colormecourtney.com color me courtney color me courtney color me courtney blog marc by marc jacobs jerri rose jessi rose marc by marc jacobs rose print marc by marc jacobs fashion blogger new york fashion blogger fashion blogger nyfw fashion blogger new york fashion week nyfw mbfw mercedes benz fashion week February 2015 black fashion blogger nyc new york fashion blogger color me courtneyI started my day with Lacoste and Noon by Noor at Lincoln Center, where I spent more time in line than I did in the show but still really enjoyed it!

Yeah, me neither cause my life is not a movie and I usually am too focused on navigating the snow + heeled booties to stop and scan the hunks – but I did recently have a totally cinematic love-at-first-sight moment resulting in an instant crush with this clutch (don’t tell my boyfriend).color me courtney color me courtney colorme courtney color me courtney black fashion blogger black fashion blogger color me courtney fashion blogger fashion blogger color me courtney color me courtney fashion blogger plaid sweater red heart bag color me courtney pearl babble bar pearl baublebar pearl bauble bar peal cuff pear bracelet pearl pearl pearlcolor me courtney color me courtney colorme courtney color me courtney black fashion blogger black fashion blogger color me courtney fashion blogger fashion blogger color me courtney color me courtney fashion blogger plaid sweater red heart bag color me courtney pearl babble bar pearl baublebar pearl bauble bar peal cuff pear bracelet pearl pearl pearlAlthough this darling bag is the perfect gift or goodie for valentines day, I’m also totally going to wear it year around. I love how the red works with my signature color and the gold plays off my accessory metal of choice! Plus it’s darling but in an almost-edgy way so you can either 1) play up the kitschy cute elements of it, 2) keep it casual and wear it with basics (like I did here) or 3) dress it up with high fashion statement pieces for an over-the-top look – do it, I dare you!  Plus if red’s not your jam it comes in black making it even more likely to have a life after valentines day!color me courtney color me courtney colorme courtney color me courtney black fashion blogger black fashion blogger color me courtney fashion blogger fashion blogger color me courtney color me courtney fashion blogger plaid sweater red heart bag color me courtney pearl babble bar pearl baublebar pearl bauble bar peal cuff pear bracelet pearl pearl pearl

What are you doing for Valentines day? Is it a night-on-the-town red-dress kind of sitch with some stud? Or night-on-the-couch no-bra kind of moment with your girls? Either way, I know you’ll look awesome (even if this awesome look includes the worlds largest top knot and a pint of mint chocolate chip to accessorize with, either way I totally support you ;) )color me courtney color me courtney colorme courtney color me courtney black fashion blogger black fashion blogger color me courtney fashion blogger fashion blogger color me courtney color me courtney fashion blogger plaid sweater red heart bag color me courtney
