I <3 Daytime Sequins

I got this shirt from a lady at work who said that she loved it but every time she put it on she just couldn’t see herself wearing it out of the house.  After seeing me bedecked in some other sequin item she brought it to me, “You’ll love this” she promised.  And I do!

It’s a cashmere tank top with sequin panels on the front.  It’s crazy shiny and wearing it alone might blind someone if I stand in the sun at the wrong angle, but worn as a layer it works wonderfully.

The loose weave knit of the light sweater (can’t see it in the drawing) as the top layer let’s the sequins poke through from underneath and isn’t too heavy.

I’m squeezing the last life out of my multi-print leopard flats.  This may have been the last day I wore them since they’re officially falling apart.  I’m sad, but at least they got some happy wearing out of them!

For some reason sequins seem very winter to me, maybe icy and a little harsh.  It is probably something I’ll phase out for the summer months, but this made a great transitional outfit.

Winter’s End

Well we can hope right?

This sweater with short sleeves is perfect for California winters!  I love this outfit.  It’s not only comfortable but also cute and really functional.

The boots are wonderful, and super comfortable with a spacious toe-box.  I can’t wear them every day (like my black lace-up boots) because of the color, but every time I don them, I get compliments wherever I go.  A lady at Trader Joe’s stopped me in the produce department to ask where I got them!  They were another Christmas present but my mom got them from Nordstrom’s and I looked this morning and they are still available.  (Although the sizing is very limited at this time.)
