leather and sparkle

{Mossimo moto jacket, F21 sequin skirt, American Eagle Outfitters sweater, clip hearts, Janet Setter necklace, NWM Tiffany & Co. necklace, Franco Sarto boots, Dior tights}

Leather and sequins are not usually something I normally rock on an everyday basis, but I decided to dress up on this blustery fall day, and add some sparkle to my step! I tried toning it down with a large oversized sweater, and a muted gray faux leather jacket, but there is no hiding those sequins- they are loud and proud! I'm pretty sure everyone in the office did a double take whenever I walked by.

The accessories in this post are some of my favorites! The hearts were a gift from my WikiFashion meetup, and literally make any outfit pop! The two necklaces draped on my neck are from the Nike Women's Marathon 2011- that I ran a few weeks ago. And the second one from Janet Setter, who makes the most beautiful hand crafted jewelry! The designs are intricate and thoughtfully crafted, definitely  statement pieces to wear year round!
