All That Glitters Is Not Gold

Today's outfit is inspired by this Pinterest image of sequins paired with chambray. I would have much preferred to go bare-legged as the tights detract from the outfit. This mild winter has been a pleasant surprise, so I better not push my luck ;)

Hope you're having a great Tuesday!

  1. Love your version of chambray and sequins here. And of course your amazing layering skills.

    I have worn my sequin tank over my chambray shirt but haven't thought of wearing it under it. Need to try.

  2. That scarf looks so warm. I agree with Lilly, your layering skills are truly amazing! I feel uncomfortable wearing tights for some reason =( D.C winter has been so BLAH and I can't wait until the winter is over so I can wear skirts and dresses again.

    1. Is it the Spandex effect around the tummy area? That's a sign I use to tell when it's time to hit the gym, hahaha. I really should take my own advice, sigh. The temps will be in the high 60s tomorrow - are you ready?!

    2. It's that and just the spandex effect all over the place! I like leggings though. Wow I just checked the weather after seeing this and I'm totally ready for warm weather!! Oh, I noticed a while back that your old navy boots are back in stock here http://oldnavy.gap.com/browse/product.do?searchCID=68131&vid=1&pid=798700&scid=798700012 and I'm kind of tempted to get them...hmmm...

    3. I'm the opposite, haha. I bought my first pair of leggings for the first time in years over the weekend. I'll pay attention to see how I like them compared to tights.

      Re Old Navy boots: I say only get them on sale/with coupon because ON has them all.the.time. If you're picky about leather, these are probably not for you because up close they definitely look faux. Let me know what you end up doing!

  8. Anorak and sequins with a peek of chambray? Genius! Also love that gold mini! The white threads(?) running through it gives it such a striking texture.
