The Classics

28th October 2013

Sometimes you have to go back to basics, as I did here with black, white and a little bit of leopard. 

blouse: asos (get the bow here) // skirt: modcloth // bag: kate spade (similar) // trench: h&m (similar) // sunnies: karen walker // boots: kate spade // bracelet: jcrew // tights: capezio // belt: express (similar) //

Just black and white is a little bit boring, so red lips and red nails serve as the perfect pop of color! Gold accents like the logo on my karen walkers, gold rings and gold buttons on my blouse and boots also give the look an extra point of contrast. Anyone can replicate this look with closet staples: a black skirt, white blouse, black boots, black tights and a trench coat. You can even create your own black bow with ribbon or your boyfriends tie!

b&w bows

10th February 2013

one of my last az looks was a bow inspired cream && black number…


mint is all the rage this season and makes the most refreshing hue for the perfect color pop.



i made a bold monochromatic statement by pairing black && white with a double dose of bows.

dress: just taylor  // trench: vintage // bag: kate spade //shoes: kate spade // ring: kate spade // arm party: sequin // bcbg // kate spade idioms  // vintage //  kate spade charm bracelet (i’m obsessed) // j.crew // sequin

frenchie

7th January 2013

todays outfit is a homage to waffles as i step out in my favorite new frenchie top

this top is fairly casual, so i keep it low key with a comfy skirt && a layering long sleeve. i gave myself the heigh i so desperately need with black booties (if you’re short pair booties with black tights or leggings to elongate your legs, otherwise they can chop you up).
i kept it courtney by piling on the pearls (are you surprised?) && chincing with a black bow belt! oh yeah && waffles strutted his stuff in his signature “w” pin.
