sequins in the day keep the boredom away...

the details

I bought this top for New Years last year and thought it was a complete waste and that I'd never wear it again. I don't know if it's because I don't like the way I looked in all the photos from last NYE, but when I put it on the other day it wasn't so bad. I decided to play down the sequins with a jacket and denim to wear it to work. I thankfully work in a very casual office environment, where trends are more relevant than business attire.

I'm itching to change around the furniture in my room and some new DIY projects. Does anyone else ever get the sudden urge for change? It usually happens to me a few times a year, but it feels so great to make even the smallest of changes in your surroundings.
Hope you all had a lovely weekend <3


  1. you are not alone there. i totally get like that. usually moving my bed from one side of the room to the other and switching some pictures around does the trick for me.

    and the outfit is a hit. :)

  2. Alicia! :)
    I'm all for change and the DIY. I haven't gotten around to it tho. I'm constantly moving my bedroom furniture around to see if that'll help.

    Have a great day.. stay dry :)

  3. Very cute! I love the way you played down the sparkles for daytime. I also love changing stuff around in my apartment.

  4. Hi gorgeous! And I don't mean the sequins you're wearing. Hair envy, yet again hahaha. It's safe to assume that I will have that every time we hang out or when I see your posts. I love your hair! And I love your jacket too. The bow is the perfect detail and complements the sequined top. I totally know what you mean about change, I've been wanting to clean my room and get some rolling racks for all my clothes! haha although, a shoe shelf would be IDEAL.

    Hope you had a good weekend! Let's hang out soon xo

  5. Oh what are you talking about, I love that top and it looks great on you!! You're too cute.

    I just bought a new mattress and am scoping out vintage-style bed frames - I am in a definite redecoration mood. It feels so good to revamp your room/house sometimes!

  6. It totally works under the blazer, which is fantastic btw!
    Please do share your DIY/redecorating I feel the itch too but if only I had more time!

  7. Ooh, I love the bright jewel tones in the top! So pretty!

  8. Love, love, love that shirt. I think it looks great for daytime hours with the jacket and denim.

  9. That blouse is lovely! I'm a firm believer that sequins can be for any time of day!!


  10. WOW i love the way you wore sequins in such an elegant and understated manner. following you now :)

  11. This time of year always makes me want to change everything around me for some reason. I've been browsing apartments for months now, planning for new furniture and stuff, and in the mean time I keep tearing my house apart and cleaning, as well as getting rid of clutter and next will be moving furniture around. It's ridiculous sometimes! I feel you!
