Union Square Sparkle

26th June 2012

Surprise, surprise… another sparkly outfit!But this one has a twist… I’m strutting through union square wearing (drum roll please) … pants! It’s a rare sight to see so take a peak!

To make this layering look work, I used a necklace as an illusion! This sparkly shirt is my favorite layering piece (hence why I am always wearing it) but it has a boat neck (boo), making it difficult to layer under! So I just pile on the necklaces to cover the gap between the boat neck and the button up!
Top: Foxcroft turquoise button up. Shirt: J.crew sparkle top. Thrifted white belt. Jewels: Statement Pearls, J.crew Pave Link bracelet, Kate Spade Idiom bangles, Kate Spade lady marmalade bracelet, Kate spade all wrapped up bow ring, Kate Spade gum drop studs. Glasses: Tom Ford.

Sophisticated Sparkle

13th June 2012

Glitter, glitz and glam can be any girl’s best friend, but it’s all about how you wear it!
It’s no secret that I am a bit of the top, I eat sleep and breathe bold colors and in your face outfits. But not everyone enjoys being as obnoxious with their outfits as I do, so here’s a way to a sparkly style in a sophisticated way.

As you know by now, I am all about the layering. To take a sweater or shirt from basic to bold, I pair it with a button up blouse. And to make a statement I layered on the necklaces!
Do any of these pieces look familiar? It’s because I wear them all the time! This outfit contains a few key investment pieces that could be worn a million ways: white skirt (a la zara), a black bow belt (kate spade) and a white button up. If you are color crazy like me, a bright bag and bold pumps may also make your investment list!
Over all, I like this outfit because it’s classy enough to make a good impression but still classic Courtney with bold pops of color and a little bit of glitz. I guess the moral of this outfit is you don’t have to sacrifice your personal style to “look the part”, you just have to intertwine the two.
