Grey & Sequins

IMG_7613-crop

What’s better with sequins than more sequins? I snapped up these sequined pumps on clearance at Target recently and couldn’t wait to try them out. Pairing them with a sequined bow cardigan seemed appropriate. Plus, a pop of pink with my clutch and some fun jewelry, of course!

Speaking of jewelry, I’m excited to announce I signed up as an independent stylist with my favorite jewelry line, Stella & Dot! 🙂 I literally can’t get enough of their jewels, and after falling in love with basically everything in the new spring line, I decided the time was right.

For more exciting news on the Stella & Dot front, stay tuned for tomorrow’s post! 😉

A Look Back at 2012

I only started Christine In Color in October, but it seems like so much has happened already! I’m looking forward to sharing outfits with you in 2013! Here’s a look back at some of my favorite looks of 2012. Thank you for reading!

End of Year Recap

Blue & Grey

It’s been a cold and rainy few weeks which was making me think of blues and greys. But those shades can be cheery too. It’s hard not to feel upbeat in a loud print like this J. Crew liberty shirt. And I loveee a cardigan with pockets 🙂

Tweed + Stripes

I don’t usually do cropped jackets because I don’t think the boxy cut or cut-off length is flattering on me. But I loved this tweed pattern, and I don’t think it’s too boxy so I went for it. I added a top with longer sleeves and torso so I wouldn’t visually appear so cut off. I kept my accessories lady-like, but the relaxed fit jeans and casual striped cotton turtleneck keep the outfit from being too stuffy. The oatmeal color in both the turtleneck and the jacket pull the look together.

How do you wear tweed?

The Blue Blazer

I grabbed this school boy blazer over the fall, and then couldn’t figure out what to wear it with. (You know my rule of 3). I thought about taking it back, then I realized it was final sale (oops). I wore it once with a khaki suit dress and it looked nice, but I knew I could do better. As it turns out, I can’t. But Kendi Everyday can! I don’t usually see looks on other bloggers that I want to exactly duplicate, but when I saw her post last week in a look-alike blazer, I thought, I have to steal that! Thanks, Kendi 🙂

As a side note, something about having a blue blazer makes me think of that episode of Friends where Joey works as a docent at the museum and tries to save Ross a seat at his table at lunch and Ross shuts him down because people in white coats sit together and people with blue blazers sit together. Anyone else? Just me? Cool.

Lacey Blues

I had been looking for a way to incorporate my turquoise bubble necklace into fall/winter, and I’m really pleased with how this color blocking look turned out. BTW, I hope people aren’t over bubble necklaces yet because I really like mine 🙂  I also love this new photo spot my husband and I stumbled upon at our apartment complex. Great morning light! It made things a lot easier when we were trying to snap some photos before work!

Tartan Take Two

My wear 3 ways series is back with take 2 on this great tartan blazer I introduced in this post!

It’s hard to avoid tartan + red over the holidays, but there’s nothing wrong with a classic combo. The sparkly studded loafers spice things up! I added more pops of gold with a brooch and gold bracelets. I didn’t notice until writing this post that my J. Crew pave link bracelet made it into both outfits 😉 My husband keeps telling me I wear the same bracelets too many times. If that isn’t an invitation, I don’t know what is!

How do you wear tartan? I’m always looking for inspiration for outfit number 3!
