casual sequins

 sequin top (old)(love this one)/Utility jacket (similar)/Mother denim (here)/Nine West boots (similar)/Bauble Bar necklace (here)/J Crew Clutch (similar)/Rebecca Minkoff Sunglasses (here)
This shirt has been hanging out patiently in my closet for quite a few years now and finally got it moment to shine! I bought the shirt for a dressy work function and haven't worn it since; mostly because black sequins scream too dressy.  Putting together today's outfit and blog post I learned two important lessons: heeled black knee high boots are a fabulous option for skinny jeans and your favorite sequin top you bought for that "fancy" event can be worn out for your next date night by pairing with a trusty utility jacket and skinny jeans. Give it a try and thank me later...
