Party Perfect





[blazer: zara / top: j.crew / pants: c/o james jeans / shoes: c/o payless /
necklace + bracelet: c/o baublebar / lipstick: NARS Schiap / Glasses: c/o warby parker]

This past weekend I had a family holiday party and wanted to get gussied up. So I turned to the classic uniform; skinnies, blouse, blazer, and statement jewels. I received these gorgeous jewels from BaubleBar who challenged me to mix a few pieces into my daily outfits. This necklace was singing my name as soon as I took it out of its packaging. It reminds me of THIS one that I already have. A girl can never have too many faux pearls am I wrong? All in all it was the perfect look for playing with the tiny tots at the party, and eating lots of tasty home cooking.

    Search for J Street - I have been looking for an inexpensive pair like this for over a year now. I saw a similar pair in J. Crew awhile back, but I really didn’t want to spend $200. Then I saw a similar pair by Pour la Victoire on sale for $125 over the holiday, but I still held out. Then as soon as I saw this pair, I stalked the Payless website until they got restocked in my size! You can tell Payless that is was totally worth giving you those pumps to wear for your blog. I never would have thought to look on their website, but now I am so glad I did. Not only were the shoes about 4 times cheaper than the next best option, they are also much more comfortable than I imagined.ReplyCancel
