I’m feeling incredibly hopeful that this week is going to be amazing. My 22nd birthday is this Friday and we only have two more Mondays until Christmas! There’s the silver lining of it being Monday.
When I was in high school and thought that Forever 21 used to be the best thing in the world, I loved a sequin or glitter detail. But, since it was purchased at Forever21, it had a lasting power of about a week until it was ruined because of a snagged sequin or until I realized a baby doll pink sequin dress actually wasn’t my style. That’s probably why I don’t normally gravitate towards anything sequin or glitter nowadays. But, when I saw that J.Crew revamped the classic button down by adding sequins, stripes and colors I couldn’t resist. Plus the quality is a hell of a lot better than Forever21.
But seriously, this shirt is amazing so I purchased the white version as well because I love a white button down. I also couldn’t believe how many compliments I received at work when I wore it. I really wanted to play up the sequins so I added a glitter clutch. Is there anything more festive than glitter & sequins?! And since we are on the topic of how amazing J.Crew’s new arrivals are…I am obsessed with these heels. I have way too many clothes, bags, jewelry…pretty much everything, but I’m totally lacking in the shoe game. I love that this pair is different from my normal classic black pumps and I love that it’s a statement by itself which is great addition to a pair of jeans and a simple button down.
