Lookbook: Sequins & Stripes

I am totally loving Emma Stone’s style and especially her red carpet looks are always so amazing. She always looks glam but not over the top. She recently wore a gorgeous sparkly top with black pants, a look that I just adore. I wanted to put together an outfit that was a bit inspired by her but also appropriate for my style and everyday wear.

Blazer: Anthro (old) | tshirt: t+j Designs
Jeans: American Eagle | Shoes: Louboutin | Clutch: Forever 21

Instead of the sparkly top, which I wouldn’t normally wear during the day, I swapped it out with a fun graphic tee (with a nod to the sequins and sparkles that Emma wore!). And I love her sleek black trousers but I paired my outfit with my favorite ripped jeans to go with the casual daytime look. I wore this out for a day out with my husband and daughter (as you can see from the little photobomb) 🙂


And I just had to share a little “behind the scenes” of the photo shoot. I don’t take many outfit photos these days but when I do it now turns into a fun photoshoot with my daughter, which I love way more than outfit photos 🙂

The clutch I’m carrying has become a recent fave. It’s just one of those bags that can go with anything and has the right amount of space to carry your essentials.

My always essentials:

– It’s cold in Seattle but the sun loves to come out during the day and is impossible to see anything while driving so I always have to keep a pair on me. These are so cute and a whole $5. I never have to worry about losing them as I do with expensive pairs!

Wallet – I love the color of this wallet. When I look into my bag, I can spot it so easy, it never gets lost no matter how big my bag is! It’s a good wallet to keep in a clutch though as it’s flat and doesn’t get bulky as the other side has slits for credit cards and my license.

iPhone – Because, duh.

Bracelets – I always have jewelry in my bags. Being that I often bring samples with me that we are in the midst of designing or I simply just take off and then change my jewelry throughout the day, I will always find a variety of jewelry in my bag.

Skinny Cow® Blissful Truffle Candy Bar, which comes in two flavors –
Milk and Dark Chocolate. I am more of a milk chocolate girl and I got
to say this candy bar is a favorite! I always have to keep some
candy/sweets in my bag as I tend to get a craving for something sweet
randomly throughout the day. These are are deliciously indulgent with a
rich, soft truffle layer.


What do I love most about awards season? It’s all about indulging – from fashion,

movies or celebrity news to scrumptious eats. This season, I’m giving the award

for ‘Most Indulgent Candy’ to Skinny Cow® Chocolate Candies. OMG – yum!

Make the most of your awards season, indulge and find happiness in every bite.

    Your daughter is adorable! Mommy- daughter photo shoots are the best. Totally loving this inspired look. Perfect for anything. The pop of color heel really adds a nice element to your look. (:
