That 90’s Chick

12th May 2014

The 90’s are back, and better than ever! Crop tops, sweaters around the waist and the Backstreet Boys are all the rage (okay, maybe I made that last one up cause I want it that way). Today I’m doubling up on the 90’s trend 

My OOTD:
Top: Zara striped long sleeve crop top (similar here, love this one)
Skirt: J.Crew Crew Cuts (don’t judge me) similar here + more spring colors
Cardigan (tied): Borrowed from my boyfriend (thanks, Paris) Tommy Hilfiger
Purse: Coach Bleeker Pinnacle Crossbody in Painted Snake – obsessed with this one
Earring: DIY Giant Pearl stud (post coming soon), similar at bauble bar
Shoes: Black Leather Bacio 61 Booties
I’m a 90’s baby, so I am loving that it’s making a comeback! Right after halloween last year, I had the genius idea to dress up as Dionne from Clueless and am determined to make it happen this October (P.S. have you seen this music video, I’m not usually into rap but I’m obsessed). But when the 90’s trend started popping up this spring, I thought why wait! I can channel Dionne everyday!
I also stopped by the Reebok Skycape event at Chelsea Triangle to test out (and fall in love with) their awesome new shoes. They’re light weight, machine washable, super comfortable and made of foam!!! Yes… foam! Fun fact- They actually make them in the same factory that Victoria Secret makes thier comparable bras! And because their made of foam, you can go sock-less! I’m wearing the Reebok Skycape in pink fusion (shop here) and went home with a pair in coral!
Will you be trying the 90’s trend?
P.S. how beautiful is the freedom tower, I love it!

Little Boy Blue

19th February 2014

I’ve been borrowing from the boys more than I would care to admit lately. This act of rebellion is a bit out of character for me, seeing as I’ve been twirling since age two – well despite my tragic tom-boy phase, read all about my youthful lapse of judgement here. So for today’s inspiration, I paired boyish charm with menswear silhouette and the essence of Queen B (Blaire Waldorf) for a classic look that straddles gender lines.
Booties: C.wonder (similar here or splurge on these) // Skort: Zara (similar under $25) // Top&Bow: Asos (similar top here or just the bow here) Bag: Coach (with silver hardware here) // Coat: Zara // Sunnies: Karen Walker (similar here) // Lips: Ruby Woo by Mac // Rings: H&M
I don’t know what I did before the Zara skort. I thought this obsession would die when summer ended, but I have just found myself wearing it more and more… and more. It’s the middle of February, yet I still wore my white one over black tights this weekend…. what’s wrong with me? The only reasonable explanation is love, I am head-over-heels for the sassy skort – in black, white or blue. But since I was sick of feeling sporty, (my boyfriend does a cheer & makes fun of me when I wear it) I married my skirt-obsession with tailored pieces and a tuxedo vest to dress it up! What do you think, menswear-chic? Images by Claire Eliza

Mwah!

31st January 2014

Happy Friday All! Last week some of my favorite gal pals were in town (more on that later) so we had to venture over to Shake Shack at Madison Square Park for a quick bite. As you may know, I’m 95% gluten free but had to make an exception for one of my touristy treats!
Big thx to Sarah for snapping these, I love being part of your journey as you discover in photography.

Fur: Michael Kors (similar) // Sweater: Khols, believe it or not (LOVE this one) // Dress (under): Forever 21 // Bag: Kate Spade (old, obsessed with this one, and this one on sale!) // Hat: Marc by Marc Jacobs // Coat: Zara – on sale // Sneaker Wedge: Sam Edelman (also here) // Sunnies: Karen Walker (also here) // Rings: H&M // Necklace: Marc by Marc Jacobs // Bracelets: Taylor Morgan // Lip: Mac, Ruby Woo
A rep lip has become my go-to accessory, and part of my signature look. So when I found this sweatshirt ages ago at Khols of all places, I knew it had to be mine! Since, it’s become one of my favorite casual day sweaters, that I pull on when I need a bit of a fashion facelift. Every gal needs a piece like that, something that’s comfortable and easy for lazy days but still makes you feel good when you pull it on! What’s yours?

Cheers to the freakin’ weekend!
I hope yours is nothing short of fabulous!
Exciting things have been happening in Courtney land,
and I’ve been working like a crazy lady. But starting next week I’ll
actually have days off again (yay!!!). I’m looking forward to stopping to
smell the roses and filling my sundays with brunch,
museum hopping, some serious thrifting and adding to my record
collection. And I can’t wait to share what’s been happening in my world as
things begin to slow down. Stay Tuned!
