Another Everybody, Everywear! I was super excited when the options were presented for December’s EBEW – fur, holiday sweaters or sequins. Unsurprisingly, and much to my jubilation, sequins won!
I like sequins here and there. Generally, I prefer my sequins to be a small part of a more casual look, with a cargo mini skirt, or a cotton maxi and oversized cardigan. Who doesn’t love an added bit of sparkle and shine to their day to day wear?
I built this outfit around the skirt. I had to take out the tie belt that came with the skirt, and this grommet belt was the only one I could find that would cinch on my natural waist (all my other belts I bought to fit around my hips, and I haven’t gotten around to adding different sized belts to my wardrobe for my natural waist). Once I put the belt on the skirt, the outfit came together easily. I was especially happy to see that the black tights I pulled out actually have a subtle pinstripe pattern to them.
It was also fun as I was running around knowing that I was wearing a sequined tank top under all my layers, but no one else knew but me. Kind of like wearing sexy underwear, only less racy.
In my continued obsession with wearing a denim jacket under a puffy vest, I give you the look with the outerwear also:
I may or may not be dreaming up my outfits to compliment denim jacket/puffy vest outerwear combination. I may or may not continue to post pictures of the combination, and how said combination works with different outfits. You may or may not have been warned.
