Casual and glam

My style is very relaxed and lay back. Sometimes, to spice things up, I like to mix casual and comfy with a bit of glam. In my opinion, both options get the job done just in different ways. This outfit is a mix of several casual elements (denim and riding boots) and glam (the crystal necklace).


What I am wearing: 
Top: H&M (buy similar
Denim: Ruehl (buy similar
Coat: H&M (buy similar


Thanks to Swarovski for sending over the Navette pendant necklace. Although, this is my first piece of jewelry from them, I have been collecting Swarovski pieces for years. I am excited to be an ambassador to Swarovski Elements’s new iPad app Magazine! If you’re interested, you can download their app in iTunes. Additional information can also be found on the Swarovski Elements Facebook page.


Crystal and denim typically don’t go together but I think it works in this case because the colors of the necklace and top blend nicely together. I also like the fact that this necklace is versatile enough to wear with a variety of outfits, whether casual or dressy.

Readers, do you like mixing casual and glam pieces?

  5. Casual and glam isn't exactly oil and water. However, if you're going to make it work, it's best to make both elements work with as little compromise as possible. I probably would have went with some chocolate brown leather or patent leather riding boots for this outfit, but you otherwise look great, Sydney.


  6. I really like the unique color of the boots, and how well they go together with you coat, which I also LOVE.

    Keep an eye out on my blog later today. I'll be featuring this as one of the looks I love today.
