Make it Shine

Thursday, August 9, 2012














[top: Ann Taylor, shorts: Ann Taylor, belt: Ann Taylor, heels: Gazith, necklace: Lia Sophia, earring studs: American Eagle, dangle earrings: Francescas, watch: Guess, bangles: boutique] 

It's no secret that I love all things that sparkle, so when I saw this top in the window of the Ann Taylor where I work, I knew that it had to be mine. I love the color, I love the fabric, I love how it shines, and I love how I stand out when I wear it. However, it was one of those impulse purchases where I never fully thought through what exactly I would wear it with (don't you hate when that happens?), but I find that colored shorts are a great way to make this shirt truly standout. Because it's a neutral light shade, a pop of color is what this shirt really needs. I can easily see this top working in the fall as well as a way to dress up a pair of jeans. With some colored accents and of course the right shoes, I've learned that there's really no way that this shirt can't work. When in doubt, shine on!
