Sparkles and Shine

Today's outfit has been inspired by the following Pin:

The keyword, of course, is inspired.

I really love everything about this look, but I don't have a jacket that color, nor do I have a sparkly top like that. I do, however, have a blazer and a sequin top. 

It's too bad that I didn't snap a pic this morning before I went to school. I swear, this outfit looks so different under natural light (and even fluorescent light for that matter). Also, when the weather forecast called for 60 degrees, it didn't register to me that 60 degrees actually feels warm. So I had to take off the jacket while I taught because it was so hot.

Occasion: Teaching
Jacket: Gap {buy similar here}
Top: The Limited {buy similar here}
Chambray: Old Navy {buy similar here}
Pants: Apt 9 c/o Kohl's
Heels: Anne Klein c/o DSW
I've never layered like this before. This time last year, I would never have done something like this. I probably wouldn't have tried something like this 6 months ago, either. I have a new found fashion confidence, and it really is partly because of blogging. I have also found ways to do so much with what I have. I honestly can't remember the last time I said, "I have nothing to wear."

Has blogging affected you and your wardrobe? In what way(s)?


  1. This turned out great! I pinned this look and did this too. It really is a cool way to layer and the sequins work for day with the blazer. Blogging definitely made me more open to trying new things! Heather

  2. I have that blazer but I have yet to wear it. Love how you styled it here! Great inspiration!

  3. You recreated this outfit well!! I have been wanting to recreate that outfit out since seeing that outfit on pinterest!

    Great job! :)
