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.
