IMG_7228 IMG_7248 After watching the Grammy Awards last weekend, I was immediately inspired by all the sequin, shimmer and glam. I know that New Year’s is behind us but that doesn’t mean we should put away our sequins until next holiday season, right? Playing off the sequin trend at the show I decided to mix this new skirt with a tee + denim jacket, a style I’ve coveted on Pinterest and countless other bloggers for ages. I’ve always felt this girl couldn’t pull it off but once I found this amazing skirt for just $20, I knew it was meant to happen. I love how this turned out, and nerdy as it sounds, how effortlessly cool I felt wearing it. While I’m just playing dress up here, I’m so excited to wear this during a NYC trip in March.

Another exciting part of this outfit is well — not exactly the outfit — my hair. This is day FIVE hair, where I’ve been using this amazing new styling wand. I purchased after learning that someone who’s hair I majorly covet started using it. It’s genius because you don’t have to turn the barrel; you simply turn this knob with your fingers and it twirls your hair around. After one or two tries, I’m able to curl my hair. I just touch up daily.
