Sparkle, Sparkle


Sequin jacket: Lovers and Friends (other here)  |  Tee: Marc by Marc Jacobs  |  

Skinny jeans: Anine Bing  |  Flats: Steve Madden  (cool ones here, here + here) |  
Necklace: Jennifer Zeuner

Dressing down a pretty fancy sequin jacket can be a little challenging but what always works for me is always pairing it with basics to help balance the fancy with the easiness of staples like your favorite tee and jeans. A simple pony tail definitely was the icing on the cake for a long day of Christmas shopping with my parents!

Note to self: Experiment more with different hairstyles… I just wish I could whip out amazing looks but the fact of the matter is that I’m terrible; only thing I’ve perfected is the messy waves.. and well I can’t go wrong with that, I guess.

  132. Kaylyn Comment #134

    I love how you dressed down the sequin jacket! You make it look like such an effortless outfit. I love it! And I need to experiment with more hairstyles as well. I always try to recreate the hair tutorials on YouTube, ’cause all the girls claim it only take 5 minutes, but it ends being a complete disaster. Therefore, my straightening/curling irons are my best friends and never fail me.

  173. tyler Comment #175

    You should do a makeup tutorial video!! I always love the way your makeup looks. So effortless and beautiful! Also what face makeup products do you use? I’m rather dark complected like yourself and can never find face makeup that doesn’t make me look whiter than I really am, but yours looks perfect all the time!
