I love glitter. That's pretty obvious by now (hello...my new website is called Glitter Guide). However, my love for sequins and sparkles stops when it becomes tacky and over the top. I enjoy bedazzled jewelry on the wrist, glittery stilettos, a sparkly top with a pair of sleek slacks, a classic vintage sequin dress or a shiny blazer with a button up. This blazer was one of my favorite purchases last year. When I slip it on, no matter what I'm wearing, I feel happy and bright. It took my masculine outfit and gave it a little feminine pizazz.

I am also obsessed with sparkles! I think it's a left over addiction from 10 years in dance :) xoxo Marissa

Your outfit is adorable, and you are right, the jacket makes it a happy outfit!
Also I may have a slight obsession with your shoes.

Lovely! Shimmer can go awry, but you've made it ladylike and sophisticated.

Adore the colors: from the pink lip, blue top, to the yellow clutch. So present, so chic.

Emily said...

I love this look, right down to the leopard belt and pink lips. I like how you've embraced all things glitter and sparkle without going overboard or too tacky. Great post!!

This blazer is seriously to die for!!! :o)

Ambyr said...

I surprisingly love this look together. I think it's hard to pair a super shiny/glittery piece sometimes with flat colored pieces, but this looks great.

Sparkly blazer - how perfect! I love how you paired it with the button down, it's contrasting and unexpected.

Jessica said...

Love that blazer! It's so special and unexpected. And I love how you buttoned your shirt all the way up. I think it looks really preppy and cute.

Dancing Branflake said...

There are so many wonderful things about this post. The leopard print accent belt, the blue showing on the cuffs, the wonderfully sleek and elegant pony tail, and the setting is so natural and relaxed. Thank you!

I'm not usually a fan of blazers but I love this one. It's just too shiny not to like.

Sara Shoemaker said...

looooooove the sequins. My mom even calls me her 'bling bling girl' :) I think you and I have similar taste! Love everything you wear.

Oh I really love hte combination of the sparkles with the more conservative blue shirt. It's the perfect take on mixed up menswear. You still look so unequivocally girly, but I like the menswear shapes!

Sherry said...

Snazzy blazer!!! Love your blue button up and splash of leopard!

Your glitter is totally refined- hard to do with the sparkle. Like the mix with the preppy shirt and leopard belt..... unexpected and delightful! I am so going to have to replicate this.

Kelsey K. said...

Love how you put this together! I have the same shirt, need to get a sparkly/shimmery blazer to pair it with.
+ nice cheetah touch
