Daytime Sequins



I'm a big believer in dressing up for no reason - especially when you've had a rough couple of days and need that extra little something to perk you up.  For me, there is no better way to do this than with sequins.  I love the idea of dressing down your fanciest top by layering a casual basic underneath & adding distressed denim for an effortless ladylike look.  Give it a try - it's an instant mood lifter!




What I'm wearing:
Gap turtleneck (similar), Vintage top (via Etsy; similar here or here), Forever 21 jeans (here) & bag (here), Mossimo pumps (here), J. Crew earrings (via eBay; similar here, here or here), Bracelets: Vintage, c/o LoveObsessed & J. Crew (similar save or splurge), Lips: Maybelline Fifth Ave Fuschia, Nails: Wet n Wild Through the Grapevine

What a gorgeous look, Kimberly! I agree! You can never be too dressed up. I love the orange sequins. It's such an unexpected color for a sequin top! Orange is the new neutral this year! ;)

P.S. Totally heading to F21 for a bag of my own! LOVE it! ;)

You are so right - sequins ALWAYS instantly make you feel better! What a clever idea to dress them down by layering a turtleneck under! It grounds them and then they pair so seamlessly with the distressed denim. Lovies! :)

This look is beautiful on you. I love the casual feel of the jeans and the added element of surprise... sequins. I would have loved to see your hair from a different angle. It looks BEAUTIFUL!!

I'm so glad I'm not the only one who thinks dressing up for fun is awesome! I love wearing sequins after the holidays. That top is so pretty and it looks fantastic layered over the turtleneck. You always have flawless skin too. What foundation do you use?

Hi Toni,

I use Arbonne Line Defiance Foundation and I swear by it! I've been using it exclusively for years - it's all natural and just melts into your skin :)

I really like this! I hate turtlenecks, and I hate them under anything. You make this look snuggly, sparkly, and fancy. I love it, particularly the shoes and bag!

Love this times a million! The color of that sequin shirt is amazing. Seems like you always see sequin tops in black and white. I'm also a big fan of layering with turtlenecks. It's a winter life-saver!

I totally agree! Sometimes it takes something special to pull you out of a funk. I love the idea of mixing dressy and casual items. Well done!

Ok, I can't believe that top is vintage and in such good condition! I especially love the hem; it is asymmetrical, right? (I'm not just seeing things?)

I saw a really nice sequinned top from Dress the Population lately but I was a little unsure how I would style it outside of parties. Great idea!
