Sparkly Surprise

Remember last week when I made my birthday wish list (here)?  Well, apparently my husband does read my blog because he surprised me with this sequin top over the weekend (along with a few other fun gifts).  I love that it fits like a tee and is stretchy enough to push up the sleeves, making it incredibly versatile.  A few other combinations I'm thinking of: a cargo vest layered over with jeans & booties OR a chambray shirt underneath with slim trousers & bright pumps.

Balancing on a curb in 4" heels is not the best idea (he snapped this right before I fell off)

What I'm wearing:
J. Crew top (here), Old Navy skirt (here), Merona tights, Nina booties, J. Crew necklace (here), Target & Banana Republic bracelets

LOVE this! Shirt is an incredible find, and props to the husband for checking out the blog. Also have seen that skirt on ON; really helpful to see it on... might be a necessary purchase!

Kimberly said...

Alyson, definitely pick up the skirt - I also bought it in the bright pink color...but check in stores because I got mine on clearance for less than $10 (they aren't marked down that much online though)!
