Never Forget Your First






Cape: c/o Milk & Honey; Turtleneck: Spendid; Leather Pants: c/o Topshop x Nordstrom; Boots: ShoeMint, old; Clutch: c/o Ted Baker, no longer available (Here it is in black and a bigger version in the red); Top Crystal Necklace: Bauble Bar; Bottom Crystal Necklace: Bauble Bar; Earrings: Gorjana; Sunglasses: Thank you, Isaac Mizrahi!; Midi Chevron Ring: All the Wire; Love Ring: Bauble Bar; Knotty Pinky Ring: All the Wire; Nails: Big Apple Red

This weekend is full of firsts:

  • First time to wear a cape
  • First time to fly Virgin America (I hear its a total party!)
  • First time in San Francisco

And even as a 31 year old woman, I must say, there is something magical about experiencing a new adventure for the first time….a “first,” whether it is the first time to visit a new city or to wear a new trend, always makes me feel giddy and like a child inside.

Do something today for the first time…because no matter how big or small, or silly or serious it may be, you never forget your first.

What’s one of your “firsts” that sticks out in your mind?

    Love the outfit! Although it’s my first time posting a comment, I really look forward to your posts. I can honestly say that you have inspired me to take more fashion risks than ever before. I have always been into fashion but I always played it safe! Thanks for all of your great ideas!
    PS It was nice meeting you the other day!

    The first time I paid a mortgage payment I almost had a heart attack. Maybe stepping back and signing the contract to buy was more important.

    Courtney I love your style! I am new to north Texas and desperate for a new look…until you can give me a makeover I will continue to admire your wardrobe over my drab duds…. Enjoy San Fran! One of my favorite cities…you are rocking that cape! PS I had a first recently…the gals at public safety made me say y’all for the first time in order to get a TX license!

    I will be in San Francisco for the first time this weekend, too! Are you there for work? Doing any appearances? Looking forward to the debut of your show!

    I want a cape so bad!

  • Lindsay

    Love the cape! This is totally silly, but I’m wearing pointy-toed flats for the first time. I have big feet and thought I could never pull it off…they’ve only been sitting in my closet for about 3 months! So, today I’m feeling pretty bold! 🙂 Have fun in San Fran!

    Never forget the first time you realized that some girls have huge areolas.

    OMG your outfit is super cute. I love your boots they remind me of my Bearpaw boots that I buy from this boutique my friend told me about in Elk Grove. Everytime I check online or if im in their area I top by their store and they always have amazing deals going on. My Bearpaw boots are super comfortable and does not hurt my feet after wearing them all them. They have wool inside of them and keep my feet warm. They are made out of great material and last super long. You should check out their website
