Casual Sparkle




Jacket & Necklace (H&M); T-shirt (Ann Taylor); Shorts (Gap);  Shoes (Nine West);
Bag (Nine West find at Marshalls); Jennifer Hoffman Photography

There are few things that are more fun to wear than sequins...  And adding some sparkle transforms cutoffs and a T-shirt into something much more fun and special.  And it's okay to dust off those sparkly pieces for everyday wear.  It's basically the grown up version of playing princess... so while I don't have a tiara (not yet at least) - I have a sequin jacket :)

LOVE it!! I love the mix of casual and more fancy... It is fun to put things together you wouldn't normally think to do so. The shoes are great too!

Best, Whitley
