for this look, all you need is faith, trust and a little pixie dust… oh, and a sprinkle of kate spade whimsy && a dash of j.crew amazing-ness doesn’t hurt either.

i was feeling a little bit magical today! so i channeled my child-side for a tinker bell inspired look!
i tried to do j.crew justice by pairing my sequin shirt from a few holiday seasons ago (luckily they redo similar versions every year) with my crew cuts (embarrassing, i know) layered tulle skirt && pops of sea foam!
&& as always, piled on the accessories that included girlie pearls and bits of bling to bring a slight twinkle.

denim && dots

10th October 2012

I apologize for all the polka dot’s lately… actually, no, i rock a lot of polka dots && do so with pride!  so no, i am not at all sorry about it!
 it’s finally beginning to feel a bit like fall, well an arizona fall, where if we’re lucky we’ll get an 80 degree october day (please, please, please). so I wanted to get into the swing of fall fashion while beating the heat, and this dots && denim outfit let me do it!
by wearing a black boyfriend tuxedo vest over a denim shirt, i got a taste of fall layering without breaking a sweat. also, pairing these two menswear tops, one casual (denim) && one dressy (vest) gave the look an interesting contrast especially when paired with a girly skirt && whimsical accessories. the unexpected leopard print belt, bold pearls && dot over-dose were the outfit’s final finishing touches.
i’m loving the doubling up on dots look lately, especially with my newest handbag purchase, it matches perfectly with my favorite polka dot heels! my new wire wrap rings && earrings are also making their blogs debut: look for the “xo” && the ampersand! 
denim: banana republic // tuxedo vest: hallogen // skirt: self-made // handbag: kate spade (the perfect bag, i love it!) // belt: express (similar) // necklace: francescas // pumps: kate spade (classic && comfortable) // rings: forever 21 // wire wrap x2 (my new obsession) // francescas // earrings: kate spade // wire wrap // arm party: kate spade (similar) // sequin // vintage // kate spade (similar)
