Weekday Finds

I found a few new pieces from my impromptu visit to the mall one afternoon. I was glad that could find some of the styles I had been looking for. It was also good practice in the subtle art of self control. I had to stop myself from buying up the whole store.

This shirt reminded me of Courtney Kerr’s outfit. While I liked that she pair it with the thick rimmed glasses I love, I’m not sure I am so daring.

I found this shirt in brown and mustard. I was compelled to pick up something mustard since I saw Kourt Kardashian in that mustard cocktail dress. I know it’s not a color for everyone (my mom hated it) I think my tan skin gives me a little leeway.

Not all of these are brand new but they are the “looks” I have been going on. I seem to have a favorite size, not too small and not too large. I usually gravitate toward medium-large, heavy, metal rings. The only shiny bits on me will be found on my fingers. Some rhinestones are allowed, but they must be offset by a pop of color. I like light pastel colors and bronze, slightly distressed metals. That mustache caught the corner of my eye and I had to snatch it up. I’ve seen a big increase in mustache art and jewelery lately.

Courtney & Kourtney

Recently I have been drawn to natural, woodsy, colors, combined with sheer or light fabrics. I pair these with lots of gold and feathers. I take many of my idea from what catches my eye on others. Lately I have honed in Courtney Kerr & Kourtney Kardashian. Courtney Kerr is a fashion obsessed Dallas belle on Bravo’s Most Eligible DallasĀ  Season 1. She has a tumbler account, What Courtney Wore, which showcases her different outfits on the show.

She frequently pairs her outfits with large or ‘chunky’ necklaces. I am more fond of simple delicate necklaces, and larger bracelts.

Kourtney Kardashian - Neutral

Kourt Kardashian - Neutral with Gold accents

I believe Kourtney Kardashian is a more common household name thanks to her sister Kim Kardashian. Aside from any opinions on their E! Keeping Up With the Kardashian’s show, I am quite drawn to her sense of style. More neutral, block coloring, and polka dot prints than her sibling counterparts.

Kourtney does pair things such polka dots and cat prints and metallics in an odd manner, but I suppose she can pull that look off since she is a celebrity. I am not so quick to mix and match.
