Style Me Friday: Sequin For Daytime

Happy Friday and belated Valentine's Day!
Did you and your boos have a great day?

Another Friday and I am participating with Eboni in Style Me Friday
This one was a bit of a challenge for me because the look to recreate was Sequin for daytime.  
 
 
Below was the look to inspire us for the week.
 
 
Most of the time when we think of sequins, we think of a glitzy night out on the town.
Well, with fashion rules made to be broken, we see sequins being worn more out of the box than ever before.  This week is all about dressing down sequin to wear during the day.
 
 
I didn't have much sequins in my closet.  I MUST fix that.  All I had was a sequin tank top and another top that had very little sequin on it.  I chose to go with the sequin tank top.
 
 
Yep...you guessed it, I am wearing a tank top as a skirt.  My husband asked was it going to fall down...and I answered with putting my hands on my hips. Nothing is getting pass these hips. HA!   I just put on the long tee to cover up the unmentionables...lol.  I loved the eclectic outcome of this ensemble but after taking the pics, I realized I should have toned down the accessories to make it more of a day time look. I guess it can work.
 
 Jacket: Ashley Stewart  Hi Lo Tee: Target 
Tank worn as a skirt: Dots  Booties: Go Jane

Thinking Spring! ~ Turquoise & Cobalt

Greetings to you all!

It is Wednesday after a beautiful Tuesday of Spring like conditions in the DMV.  Mannnn...it was such a beautiful day...such a tease because today the temps drop and we are back to expecting a wintry mix.  I choose to stay in my Spring state of mind.  Only a few more weeks you guys!


Lighter colors naturally have you think of spring.  I chose to color block some turquoise and cobalt and pair with an all neutral bottom.  I could have finished this look off with a pink pump, a blue pump or a turquoise pump but I thought chose to stay neutral.  Just the way I was feelin' at the moment.
 
 
I added a fuchsia belt for some sassiness. :)
 
 
Or is it the split that gives the sassiness? *wink*
 
    Blazer and Skirt: Thrifted  Blouse: NY & Co.  Belt: Target

*side bar* I grew up a tomboy always in sneakers and in my adult life I am most comfy in my loosest fit jeans and flats.  But I tell you, I do feel like such a lady when I put on my skirts and pumps! 
My husband says that my walk changes with my style of clothes. 
He says it's the attitude.  You know, the premise of you feel the way you look...
  I say it's the 5 inch pumps.  lol.


Well anyway...hold tight you guys.  Spring is on the way!

Thanks for stopping by.

Primary Color Blocking

Hey Y'all,

I've been meaning to do a primary color blocking outfit pretty much since the inception of this blog.  I've seen several of my fellow bloggers do their takes and I always love them.  I had several pieces to put together a few outfits using primary colors and just never got around to doing it...
until now and it was sorta by accident. 
 
I was planning to put on my berry pumps and couldn't find one them (don't ask), so I had to go with plan B.  Then when I put on the red wedges the light bulb went off.  I changed what I was wearing up top and put on the yellow jacket and Voila!  Primary Color Blocking!
 
So I guess I can call this a happy accident.
Jacket: Burlington  Skirt: Old Navy  Wedges: K-Mart  Clutch: Leather Man
 
 
This only means that you will see this skirt again soon because
I think the original outfit would have been cute too...lol.
 
Oh heck...Who am I foolin'? I just love the fit of this skirt so that is just an excuse to wear it again. 
 
 
The Remix is coming soon!
 
 
If you've done a primary color blocking outfit on your blog in the past hit me with the link.  I would love to check them out and maybe feature them on a later post.
