Subtle Sparkle

Oh man, you guys. What a weekend! Hallie and I over-served ourselves, per usual. Or actually the bartender at Narcissa over-served us. #WineonWineonWine Sunday was spent brunching, recovering, and crying from laughing at Saturday night’s antics. And then judging live-tweeting the Grammys with Glam. Beyonce and Jay-Z? I died. May or may not have wet dreams about that one. #NotSorry

On a slightly more appropriate note, I’m happy to be ditching my layers and the brutally cold temps for the week! Heading to LA this morning… Follow along on Instagram!

    Sounds like a fun weekend! Your coat is gorgeous. We are practically having a heat wave here in South Africa so the idea of a coat right now is mind boggling 🙂

    Pretty jealous of your weekend and the fact you’re jetting off to LA today girlfriend! I haven’t had a sip of wine in 2 weeks and thanks to this pesky flu turned bronchitis and I’m craving a good glass of vino. 😉

    You’re looking absolutely adorbs as always! xo

    Love this outfit! Especially with the cold weather we’ve been having…

    What would you suggest wearing for the big game on Sunday? Having a party with about 30 people and don’t want to end up wearing a team tee. Thanks!

    Beyonce and Jay-Z- YES. So good. No one can blame you for that one… Enjoy the LA weather. I sort of want to cry out of jealousy as I am stuck in the arctic tundra of Chicago.

    Love that sweater and outfit. Oh how I miss being single and not a mom, well for a little bit anyways. Glad you had a good weekend. Yes the Grammy’s were awesome.


  45. 1.28.14

    I love the wax-coated denim and the glittery bow shoes, the perfect mix of edgy and girly. Per usual, you kill it 😉 hope you’re enjoying LA!

    Adorable outfit! New to the blog. Love how you combine different price points in a single outfit. Would love to someday see a post with tips on how you achieve this hair style (styling tools/ products) – perfect spirally curls just at the ends. I can never seem to get this look and have similar length/texture here!


  49. 1.30.14

    Love these coated pants with the embellished sweatshirt- perfect mix of edgy and feminine! I will probably try to recreate this look ASAP 🙂
