Shine On

I have a rule to dress by:
when you're ever feeling dull, wear something that sparkles!
I was in no way down when I added sequins to my signature layering, but if I was, a little glitter would have helped to lift my spirits!
Shirt: Banana Republic (40% off right now) // Tee: J.crew (+25% off) (tank version here) // Jeggings: The Limited // Boots: Bacio 61 // Bag: Zara (similar, 50% off!) // Sunnies: Karen Walkers (black) // Jewels: Threads
Have you ever heard of a "Canadian Tuxedo"? apparently it's when you pair a denim jacket with matching jeans (weird... I know). Anyways, I gave the Canadian Tuxedo a Color Me Courtney make over by adding a bold lip, bright bag and a little bit of sparkle! I also stuck to simple jewels and my statement sunnies to complete the look. 
Oh and speaking of sparkle, I was recently choosen to host the first ever My Threads Party by The Shine Project! My friends showed up in sparkle for sips, snaps and a little bit of shopping; and today I'm sharing the highlights!

When I lived in Arizona, I hosted tons of dinner parties, but when I moved to my little New York apartment (see it here) both my hosting capacity and party throwing budget drastically dropped :[ I am truly a hopeless hostess at heart and desperately miss throwing a good party! The parties were also such a big part of my blog, so hopefully this Threads Party is first step in getting back to hostessing! So stay tuned to see the return of the hopeless hostess ... Big Apple style.
