Nov 9th, Inspired by Pinterest (Again!)

I had so much fun copying a look (seen here) from Pinterest a few weeks ago- that I decided to try it again today.

I bought this sequin tunic a few years ago for a trip to Vegas, and I haven’t worn it since (luckily I found it at Marshalls, so it was not expensive).

Still- I’d like to wear it again… but was never sure how?

Part of my concern was that I thought sequins were too fancy for day wear… but according to Pinterest- not so!

They claim you can wear sequins anytime… so here I am trying it under a yellow blazer.

In the Pinterest picture she has paired hers with torn boyfriend jeans- since I’m working today, I have chosen my dark skinny jeans instead. Her blazer looks like it might be velvet, mine is plain old cotton… and while she is barefoot, I’ve chosen my Tory Burch snakeskin flats.

I really like this outfit- because it is something I would have NEVER put together on my own- so thank you Pinterest for inspiring me!

Below I am showing my sequin tunic all alone- looking at the photo you can tell it’s really too big for me. I tried to tuck it in in the pictures above, but a shorter length top would definitely work better.

And, truth be told- all alone it doesn’t look very flattering- again, probably because it’s too big! Note to self- don’t buy clothes that don’t fit (I know this seems obvious, but sometimes I am so excited to find a great deal that I think I can make it work. Not so!)

I look pregnant! I’m not, I swear!

I figured this top doesn’t need any necklace- I let the sequins get all the attention!

  1. Love this look! Had a similar sequin top on yesterday and could not find the right look for daytime. So off it went. This is fun! I think pairing the silver with yellow makes the sequins more daytime appropriate than a higher contrast color would. Will copy tomorrow. Thanks for sharing!

    • Thanks! I would have never thought that sequins could work for daytime, but I think you’re right in that the yellow mellows the look out a bit! Thanks for writing!
