Concrete Catwalk // Scallops & Studs

July 25, 2012

I’m a firm believer that when putting together an outfit, it’s all about balance.  Keep reading to see how I pulled together the details of this look that I found at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!

I fell in love with the rock-and-roll look of this studded handbag, and so I balanced it out by intentionally adding the rest of the pieces to keep it from feeling less like make-believe and more like me.  A buttoned-up blouse (in a sassy sheer), a bright vintage scarf & sweet scalloped shorts seemed to do just the trick, but when deciding on my shoes – I went with sky-high stiletto booties for a little extra added edge.

P.S. Don’t forget to take a peek at the fun video I posted yesterday, and get my insider tips & tricks on How to Shop a Killer Sale!

Top to Bottom:
Blouse – Lush
Necklaces (here & here) – Various, BP
Handbag – Deux Lux
Scarf – Vintage
Shorts – Frenchi
Booties – Vince Camuto
*All items were purchased by me at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

    Hey girl!!,

    I love all of your outfits and how you mix and match so many textures and styles into one amazing outfit! On that note, I see in this outfit you are wearing a shirt that is a little bit sheer…I recently have began to love the very sheer button up tops and I am having a problem choosing what to wear underneath. (I just bought a white one and it is really see through!). I sometimes wear a nude tank top under, but it is HOT in Florida! Any suggestions?

    Those booties are gorgeous! They were on my want list but I was looking a deeper red color. They look great with your outfit!

    Ugh I love those scalloped shorts so much! What an adorable look. That lip color and the side ponytail are so gorgeous on you by the way.
