Lookbook: Moss Green and Sparkles

I could blend or camouflage into the woods with these colors I am wearing. Only the sparkles will sell me out:). I bought this sequin top last year from J-Crew and it was part of my last year’s Christmas Day outfit. I’ve been wearing it pretty much everywhere even to work, yes, there is nothing wrong with a little sparkle in the office. I added the elastic belt to add definition to my waist and provide some transition between the skirt and top.

As for pairing tights with open toe sandals, the jury is still out on this one but I love it and I will own it. I am wearing a coral lipstick for the first time. I’ve always favored red and pink. What do you think of this color on me?

Don’t forget to check out and enter my GIVEAWAY in the previous post for a chance to win A J-Crew Pave Link Bracelet valued at $118.


What I am Wearing:

Skirt: Ann Taylor Top: J-Crew, Earrings: J-Crew, Shoes: Aldo, Watch: Michael Kors, Necklace: Ann Taylor, Cape: Stella McCartney, Bracelet: J-Crew, Bag: Celine
Nail Polish: Chanel “Satin Blue”

    Yeah, that top is amazing! And it does work well with that skirt! I think you can make tights and open toe shoes work together! Work it!

    that lipstick is amazing on you, I think us women of color can pull off almost any lipstick color… You are inspiring me to take more risks at the office (ie the sparkly top), it looks so chic.
    as far as the tight/socks with open shoes combo, I think if the shoe is a peep toe, it is okay and actually looks good.. however if the shoe is a sandal (like the one you are wearing in this post),it is an absolute no no imho. it just makes it look like you are “reaching” if you know what I mean. Overall great outfit, the colors are very well coordinated.
