Grit and Glam

I love mixing in a real eye-catcher with an otherwise simple outfit. So I really, for sure, had to pair this top with these jeans and this button-down…

...Okay, I admit it, I bought this top for New Years Eve, but I just couldn't wait to wear it!

My new favorite jeans. They're from a small company, EmersonMade. After FedEx held them hostage for a week, I spent this one breaking them in.

This top is great for the season, what with all the holiday parties. And matching it with an easy chambray button-down and skinny jeans keeps the whole look on the more casual side of sequins.

I loved how the light bounced off my sequins (and the frame of my sunglasses) for an extra shot of glam.

Don't worry, I didn't get too carried away with all the gold flashes. I still love the good ol' grit of Brooklyn.
