Sequins and leopard





Tank top- Target; Cardigan- Target; Pants- H&M; Scarf- Ebayed; Flip flops- Kohls; Watch- Michael Kors

I have a few tops I would designate as my 'going out' tops. Well, I'm not really going out anymore (unless you count late night trips to Target for more diapers). I've seen quite a few other bloggers wearing sequins during the day and although they wore lighter color sequin shirts, I wanted to try it out.   This isn't an outfit I would typically wear (but I'm supposed to be pushing my boundaries, right?). The sequins, scarf and colored cardigan is a lot of 'stuff,' but I liked the finished outfit. I think it would be way cuter with those black sandals from Target I've been debating though! Do you have designated 'going out' tops? Are daytime sequins a yes or no for you?

  1. I used to have a set of "going out" tops too, but we don't exactly live up the night life anymore either. lol Love the leopard and sparkle though! Thanks for sharing your look with Three-fer Thursday :)

  2. Yay for leopard and sequins. I don't go out much anymore either and need to find ways to transform my sequin tanks into casual outfits. LOVE your inspiration!

  3. I love the leopard with the sequins! I've actually been looking for a sequin top similar to yours for a "going out" top, even though I don't really go out much any more either! Silly Kim.

  4. I'm a really boring person and don't really "go out." I still like fun, sparkly, cute tops like this but since I'm not one to go out, I like making them work for every day occasions. I have a cardigan with sequins on it that I totally love!

  5. I know it's probably taboo, but I wear sequins to work. As long as I tone it down with the rest of the outfit, I think it can be a daytime thing. Throw a blazer over it and you're good to go :)

    I have a couple of sequin tops I wear with cardigans and blazers. The sequins and leopard is a fun combo here.

  7. Thanks Bethany! I didn't want to give up on sequins just because my Friday and Saturday nights are at home now! :)

  8. Thank you Alison! I hate getting rid of clothes I like just because I don't have occasions to wear them to. I am glad it seems sequins are completely acceptable during the day! :)

  9. Haha! I was surprised I liked the combo, too. It wasn't a combo I would've thought of a few months ago. Love how 'adventurous' I'm getting! ;) You can always wear sequins when you aren't going out, too!

  10. I'm right with you! Currently more sleep is a priority for me than going out! I bet your cardigan is really pretty. I am thinking I 'need' more sequins in my closet now. ;)

  11. It probably all depends on your work. I have seen people wear sequin tanks as a vest and a blazer over top and the result is really pretty! I agree with you that as long as you tone down the rest of the outfit, sequins are fine for daytime.
