the style hive: a bit of sparkle

a bit of sparkle

Coat: Topshop / Sweater: Topshop / Cords: Loft / Boots: Steve Madden (similar)
Bag: thanks to Tia! / Lipstick: Topshop 'Inhibition' / Glasses: Anne et Valentin

Sorry for the bit of a break there friends! First it was the holidays and then it was transitioning back to school for a new semester and then it was work, work, work. Sometimes it feels as if January is more of a time for "spring cleaning" than actual spring is...a new year, new goals to set, cleaning out and reorganizing, and sometimes even starting over. 

Speaking of new: a number of new acquisitions on display here! (Appropriate language too seeing as these were taken in the art museum's atrium.) In fact I think nothing but the coat (and my glasses and my...face) has been on the blog before. The sweater, bag, cords, and boots were Christmas gifts (thanks family and friends!!) and I've worn these glasses on here just recently but didn't point out that they're new too. I obviously have a love of round tortoiseshell glasses and I love how these make such a statement. With them and the bag, my lipstick, nail polish, and corduroys I tried to imbue a bit of Pantone's color of the year 2015 - Marsala - into my getup. These photos don't quite convey the nice dark maroon of my cords. (Also I apologize for the vaguely grumpy face I put on...I was having a bit of camera trouble!)

Anyway I hope everyone is recovering from the start of the new year/semester. Get lots of sleep and stay healthy!!

Much love, Julia
