Dialing Down the Glitz

As a fashion blogger, I should be really good at making things wearable. You know, mixing and matching till I’ve achieved the perfect ratio of “don’t care” and “so chic.” But wearing sparkles in the daytime evades me. I’ve never mastered casual sequins (and I’ve tried more times than I can count). So buying a pair of gold dust encrusted jeans was risky. How often would I wear them?

Apparently, a denim shirt and flat boots make anything casual. Really. It’s simple math.



cardigan- TJ Maxx
shirt- Martin & Osa
jeans- Forever21
boots- Jeffrey Campbell

    Well they’re sort of blackish gold, which makes them a little less nighttime-y and more ‘I-just-so-happen-to-sparkle-during-the-day’ appropriate. Well played.

    Gosh, if I had hte patience to wade through the endless racks and booming music of F21, I would snap those jeans up in a heartbeat. Just like the $$$$ J.Brands! Great outfit!
