Snowstorms & Sequins


There has been an absence of outfit posts lately...mainly because we've been stuck indoors with blizzard-like conditions (including 35 mph winds and 15 degree weather).  Thankfully, the snow let up enough yesterday for us to run outside & quickly get pictures taken.  While not ideal for super-chilly weather, this happens to be my new favorite layering method.  Wearing a sequin tank as a vest adds a bit of sparkle & interest to otherwise classic pieces.




What I'm wearing:
Forever 21 chambray shirt, Ann Taylor sequin top (on sale here), Tahari blazer (thrifted), Style & Co. jeans, Colin Stuart boots (via eBay), Fossil watch (here), Target earrings, Lips: Maybelline Fifth Ave Fuschia

I like the idea of sequin top with your outfit. It add just the right amount of sparkle.

Denim + sequins + leather = my absolute FAVE combination! You look lovely, dear.

Ooh I love this! I rarely get to wear my sequin tanks because I never know how ;-) This is a really cool idea.

Despite the cold and the snow you look fabulous here! I remember the snow last year in NYC and how cold I was for my outfit posts - can I call this suffering for our art?! Either way I really like the sequins with the chambray. And the lips - perfect. Have a very happy new year xo

Love your outfit and your sequins. Before you know it the snow will be heading out & you'll be longing for the days of layering again. Time moves so quickly these days.

Sarah said...

I have a sequin skirt that I wore with my chambray shirt and now I'm feeling inspired to break it back out!! :) Also, FABULOUS makeup. It always looks great, but I'm really REALLY liking it in these pics. off to buy Fifth Ave Fuschia now :) xoxo
