tea attire

15th April 2012

A few weeks back I went to the cutest little tea shop in ghirardelli square: crown and crumpet
so of course I had to dress for the occasion and I used these pieces to do so!
when combined, these pieces made the perfect tea attire, take a peak…

When I think tea, I don’t just think britts and crumpits, I also venture into “mad” territory, with a little bit of alice in wonderland flair.
So my outfit had to be classy with a little bit of whimsy, starting with bold gum drop studs in flo coral and bright bangles.
I also turned to my go-to statement clutch: the recital farrah
A bow behind my bun doubled up on the pop of peach
This summery dress wouldn’t of paired well with black, so I added a skinny black belt to tie it all together.
Polka dot tights are one of my wardrobe workhorses, they are simple yet bold and look great with everything.

3rd March 2012

If kelly I mean Courtney Green is my favorite color, Courtney Green mixed with punches of pink is one of my favorite combos! The key to pulling this pop-art-pair off is to keep the look under control with basic blacks. But dont be too boring, a little pop of b&w pattern can be your finishing touch!
Have you met Florence? Let me introduce you… She’s the newest addition to my handbag family! I will be playing favorites for the next few weeks so you two can get further acquainted, I hope my other pretty purses don’t turn green with envy!

Happy Leap Day

29th February 2012

Casual Courtney wants to wish you a very happy leap day!

Casual Courtney rarely makes an appreence in real life, let alone in blog world. But seeing as I will be in class from 9am to 9pm today (leap day) and my fibromyalgia has been acting up, I decided to leap into something comfortable and make an exception. I think it is still pretty cute, despite the casualness, would you agree?

Please note these wee taken at 730 this morning, to prove that it is never ever too early for a red lip :) 
Oh and incase you were wondering, the answer is yes… this is a seven bangle day! woo!
Top: Wildfox Couture. Scarf: China Town, SF. Jeans: 1969 boyfriend, GAP. Cardigan: Forever 21. Blazer: Amanda Smith. 7 Idom Bangles: Kate Spade. Sunnies: Vintage. Earrings: Black Gumdrops, Kate Spade. Flats: Coach. Necklace: Kate Spade.

Leap only happens ever four years… so we might as well celebrate it with the most obnoxiously hilarious leap year blooper pictures. I obviously had too much fun attempting to photograph myself this morning….

So the cats out of the bag… jumping in photographs is not one of my strengths. But, I hope you liked these bloopers and the over-all look anyways, and that you continue to follow despite my lack of grace :)
