Sometimes I’ll be shopping with one of my sisters or friends and they’ll point something out and say, “this is so Courtney.” I secretly love these comments, taking them to mean that I’m considered a person with their own sense of style. Even though I’m nowhere comparable to the Olivia Palermos of the world, there’s certain clothing that really does make me feel like, me. This polka dot blouse is a perfect example. As soon as I tried it on I felt cute, confident and knew exactly how I wanted to wear it. I have to admit, sometimes I get so caught up in life’s chaos and need a “Courtney” top to help me feel like myself again.
Last weekend’s weather was perfect to wear it, along with my favorite distressed denim and lace-up pumps. I ventured out to my favorite area of Raleigh, The Warehouse District, where there are the most colorful buildings and best coffee shop, Videri. It’s amazing what some fresh air, cute clothes and iced latte can do for a girl!
