2021 called. It wants fancy tops with your go-to jeans in the New Year. This shimmery one, to be exact.
All right, everyone. I have decided on a New Year’s resolution — to stop hesitating and to start wearing all of the things in my closet that I felt like I couldn’t wear (because I had very few occasions to wear them to this past year) on a more regular basis. In fact, I want to make a point of doing so. I want to have fun with clothing again!! An aside, I want to make sure you know that I’m not saying that joggers and matching sweatsuits aren’t fun, because that would be blasphemous (I love that -ish so much).
Dress Up Your Jeans With This Fancy Top
What I mean is, I want to bring out the fancy, the glittery, the “Ooooo damn”, the statement-makers…and do it ever so nonchalantly. Not make a big deal out of it. You know what I’m saying?
Don’t Question It. Wear The Fancy Top.
This Silver Metallic Top + Go-To Levi’s 501 Skinny Jeans
It’s going to be all about the balance. I can’t really see myself wearing this shimmery top with a skirt or trousers…not on a day-to-day basis, anyway. It would feel a bit too extra and, while I am never opposed to being *extra*, I know that I’ll end up changing into something else. So. I think the simple way to get around this is to even it all out by bringing something more casual into the mix — my favorite everyday denim, for example.
They enable the more dressy top to look and feel more casual, cool and not-trying-too-hard.
OKAY, 2021. I’m here for this.
top: LOFT Shimmer Blouse (TTS, wearing small) – I really like this top. It’s light, comfortable and…just so cute! I wear with a lighter or darker denim wash…skinny, cropped, flares, boyfriend/girlfriend…all the styles.
jeans: Levi’s 501 Stretch Skinny Jean (Medium Wash, wearing 28) – I’m between a 4-6 and have found that Levi’s size 28 fit very well. These are a go-to for me right now. They do come in a few other washes, too, btw.
boots: Kaanas Bellone Open Front Snake Bootie (wearing size 9) – they fit on the larger size, in my opinion. I usually wear a 9.5, but the 9 fit best on me in these. If you prefer a lower heel, seriously consider these Linea Paolo Velore Colorblock Booties. I’ve been oogling over them for a week or two now and I think I have to get them.
earrings: Sparkly Waterfall Earrings – these are earrings I wear a lot during the Winter/holiday season. I love the sparkly statement of them…and wear them with anything from super casual to a bit more fancy.
bag: Rebecca Minkoff Julian Backpack (dark blue doesn’t seem to be out there right now) – this ice grey is a color I’d carry all year long…and the classic black is always a good choice. The Julian backpack is one of the best handbags ever created. The end.
mask: LeLe Sadoughi (Assorted 3-Pack) – these have been my favorite masks. They are lightweight, breathable and well-made. Not to mention, very pretty!

Oh hey, Pinners…
