Casually Striped

From On April 30, 2012

Keeping it simple and comfortable in a striped maxi layered with denim and paired with gladiator sandals. The best part about this dress is not the stripes, but the pockets! Nice touch.

What I Wore:
J.Crew dress and bag, Gap denim jacket, Sam Edelman sandals, Anthropologie sunglasses

P.S. The Instagram posts will now be a monthly, not weekly, type of thing. Make sure to follow me [@]cortnieelizabeth!

Pink Overload

From On April 26, 2012

When I first bought this sheer, super bright pink maxi dress from BCBG Max Azria I wasn’t quite sure of how I was going to wear it. I remembered the neon sweater I had bought from J.Crew a while back and thought it would be fun to play with different tones of neon pink. To make it even more dramatic, I HAD to have some gorgeous pink blooms in the background. Just a touch of animal print and I had a look that I can call one of my faves.

What I Wore:
J.Crew sweater, BCBG Max Azria maxi dress and ring, Love,Cortnie ‘Cool Cat’ clutch (find it here), Forever 21 necklace

New To My Etsy Shop!

From On April 25, 2012

New oversized clutches in my Etsy shop! Oversized meaning a good 11 by 15 inches big. Last week I listed the ‘Spaced Out’ clutch (below). Definitely space-inspired with its metallic silver appearance and blue sparkly-starred lining. I love this one. Above is the ‘Stripped’ clutch which is brand new. The best part? You can customize it yourself! Choose what color you want the strip down the middle to be. The lining on the inside will change to go along with the color that’s chosen. How fun is that?!

A Week In Photos

From On April 23, 2012

Miami, here I come!

It’s Monday, so that means it’s time for another Week In Photos post! If you already follow me on Instagram (@cortnieelizabeth) you know that I’ve been in Miami for a week visiting my Sugar. I’m having a BLAST. Unfortunately, I’ll be heading back home tomorrow (big boo), but here are some photos from my trip so far.

Just arriving.

Before heading out.

Leopard & tulle for a night out.

Heading to Miami Beach.

Beachin'.

I got to watch these caterpillars at every stage until they were Monarch butterflies. Amazing.

Isn't Bella adorable??

I look forward to having beef patties every time I visit.

Wild peacocks running around the neighborhood.

Leather & Lace

From On April 20, 2012

Trying my hand at some high-waisted leather shorts. It was interesting to say the least. I had been eyeing these J.Crew shorts for a while and like many other times, decided to take the jump and just get them. My favorite part is the shoes, though. I waited too long to buy them on Piperlime, but was given a second chance when they were restocked. Again, I jumped. They’re simply amazing.

What I Wore:
J.Crew denim vest & leather shorts, Old Navy tank, KORS Michael Kors heels (here), Love,Cortnie ‘Sorbet Laced’ clutch (here), Gap belt
