Sequins & Sneakers

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 Sunglassesย / 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. ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy Tuesday!

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

    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!
