Sequins are only meant for the night, that rule is so antiquated I think.  It's a perfect rule to break today.

I think the key to wearing sequins during the day is to keep everything around it laid back and casual - that means thicker textures and unstructured fits, like this chunky knit cardigan, and distressed jeans.   The worn in jeans, the loose fit and the thick scarf all add an air of casualness to this, which works against the dressed up feeling of the top. 

And who doesn't love a little sparkle in their day, am I right? 

Next week - I'm mixing more prints.  Come back then.

    1. I'm a firm believer in wearing what feels right to you. So thanks, and maybe one day who knows? Our style is always changing and evolving as we are too.

    1. Thanks. And I'm kind of jealous that it's hot where you are. I'm already dreaming of the heat and we only just started!

  3. Love how you styled this sequin shirt.
    When you announced that you wanted to break the "no sequins during the day" rule, I knew I had to jump on this challenge. I did my own take of your rule challenge on my blog.
