…can I just say that the word “sparkly” constantly gives me a case of wordnesia? I desperately want it to have an ‘e’ in it, and I just spent several minutes staring at the title of this blog post trying to figure out why it looked so…off.
I don’t even know where I want the ‘e’ to be–I only know that I want it to be somewhere. Sparkley? Sparkely? Sparklie? Sparklee? Sparekly? Sparkly?!
(OH MY GOD NOW NONE OF IT LOOKS RIGHT.)
Anyway, um, I digress. It’s time for part three of my 7 Ways to Wear the Anthropologie Burnham Lace Top blog series! So here we go, here we go.
The outfit below is a bit of a play on what I wore to my husband’s holiday company party back in December. I had this fun black velvet tuxedo blazer from LOFT that I had purchased several years ago just hanging out in my closet–and so I decided to match a pair of velvet tuxedo trousers (also from LOFT) with the blazer to make it into a psuedo-tuxedo.
(A tux-suedo, if you will.)
I wore it with a burgundy leather bustier from ZARA to the holiday party, but in this outfit I’ve swapped in the Anthropologie Burnham Lace top.
I’ve always loved a bit of menswear, and it was fun wearing something different than the traditional dress + tights combo to my husband’s holiday party. Velvet is one of my favorite fabrics and has been a big trend both this winter and even as we now head into spring. (And I fully support it–is there anything more gorgeous than a pair of dusty pink velvet heels?)
I have also paired the outfit below with a sweet pair of (sparkly) earrings my husband gave to me as a gift from one of our favorite places to visit in Colorado–Steamboat Springs. They are from the Steamboat Springs Art Company Store. I did the oogle-in-the-store at them, he did the I-am-totally-not-interested-in-buying-what-you-are-looking-at-so-I-better-avoid-eye-contact-at-all-costs at me, and he then sneakily went back to the store purchase them later on so he could surprise me for Christmas.
The earrings are just a great mix of super pretty pastels, and if you’re ever in the Steamboat Springs area I really recommend checking out the Steamboat Art Company for all sorts of great jewelry and gifts and trinkets and things–made mostly by local artists and designers. It’s super neat.
Anyway, on to the outfit. Please ignore the horrendous roots happening in the photos below. I keep telling myself that as soon as this master bathroom remodel is finished, I’ll take some time to get in to my hairstylist get them touched up. At the rate we are going…it might be awhile. C’est la vie (or as my people say–uff da).
