Sequins & Sneakers

by Jessica Sturdy on September 18, 2012

A casual outfit for a Sunday afternoon wandering around the city with Hallie. We snapped these pictures in the heart of Chelsea after paying a much-needed visit to the Birchbox Sample Stop for some mid-NYFW pampering!

J.Crew Sequin Tee (old, similar here) / LOFT Boyfriend Jeans / Steve Madden Wedge Sneakers / ASOS Sunglasses / Michael Kors Watch / J.Crew Bracelet / gifted Stella & Dot Bracelet

I know my fellow bloggers can relate… Sometimes you run out of “poses.” As Hallie was taking pictures, I was like, “Should I act like I’m hailing a cab?” … Then a cab actually stopped. I had to sheepishly say, “Uhhh, sorry I was just kidding..” as Hallie snapped away. Note to self: Never try a “hailing a cab” picture ever again. #AWKWARD … I guess I’ll show you the pictures to give you a little laugh. :)

Happy Tuesday!

This is a look I definitely couldn’t pull off, but you (of course) look totally adorable & comfortable. Love it!

I’ve been very skeptical about these wedge sneakers, but they look absloutely adorable on you! Are they comfy?!



Jessica September 18, 2012 at 1:32 pm

Super comfy! I walked all around Manhattan and my feet didn’t hurt. I love the lift without the feeling of wearing heels!

What a cool, laid-back look! I’m loving those shoes. I wasn’t so into that trend at the beginning but they won me over. I need to illustrate those asap!

Gorgeous outfit! Love the sneakers! I need a pair of those!

LOL, love the cab story! I wish J. Crew still hat that top because I really like it!



Jessica September 18, 2012 at 9:33 pm

The good news is that they always have some sort of sequin top for sale! But I agree, this one is kind of fab. 😉 Had it for years!

So glad I came across your blog! Your sequin top is gorgeous!!

I just discovered your blog through a Pinterest Pin and I love it! I literally went through your entire blog to see how you put outfits together, and it blew my mind at how many J. Crew pieces we have in common! You are my wanna-be me!

Love the sequin shirt! I have been eyeing the same top on eBay NWT (of course), and was interested in the sizing. Do you feel this item runs TTS? Thanks so much!

I’m looking forward to your next posting! And, yes I subscribed … How could I not! You give Amazing advice and Creative concepts on fashion and remixing your wardrobe!

I’m loving how the sneakers give your outfit a sporty edge while the sequins keep it girly. Love it!
