Glam Meets Cool

Helmut Lang Blazer, StyleMint Tee, Otte Shorts, Sweet & Spark Vintage Necklace (also love this one), Ann Taylor Pumps, Saint Laurent Bag, Bare Minerals Lipgloss

Adding a vintage rhinestone necklace is the quickest way to add a little glam to an “edgier” look. I usually downplay something really sparkly with a worn in tee or ripped skinny jeans. You can usually find a blinged out necklace or two in my bag ready to thrown on at any given moment.

I just got a similar blazer. Such a great closet staple. BTW what happened to your finger? I noticed you’re wearing a band aid, hope it’s not a curling iron burn!

Great outfit, definitely going to use this for inspiration when I’m in London. Also, you’ve inspired me to cut my hair short!

Love this outfit, so simple. I adore the shorts, they look like PJ shorts but in a good way.

I’ve admired this blazer on your blog for a long time and recently decided to add it to my closet. Question re: sizing. Did you size up as the website suggests, or stick with your normal size? I’m debating between my usual size 2 and a size 4.

Thanks,
Allie

Julia August 1, 2013 at 2:05 am

Hi Allie,

I did not size up and mine fits me just fine. I’m usually a 2 and I bought a 2. I think a 4 would be too big on you.
