Sealed With Sequins


A gloomy, rainy day calls for nothing other than sequins!
Remember when I talked about this sweatshirt back in this post? Well here she is. In all of her sequined glory... plus a few of my other favorite things: leopard, leather, and polka dots! Your day is bound to be great when you have all of that going on.

Confession: these pants, they have a tear on my backside just under the belt line [GNO & attempts to "get low", gets me everytime].. yeeeet, I just can't seem to part with them. They're the best faux leather pants I've ever owned. The fit is amazing, they actually have pockets, and you know how most leather pieces make your body temp raise 20+ degrees as soon as you put them on? These pants don't because the inside is lined with cotton; genius. Did I mention they were twenty dollars? They were twenty dollars.
I have desperately been in search for what I believe to be the "perfect" leather pants so until those are found, I'll continue to wear this pair with shirts that cover the tear [& hope that they don't rip any further]. Shameful, I know. if any of you ladies have found what you believe to be the perfect pair, holler at ya' girl.
 
Sweatshirt: F21 [also love this one & this one] | Collared shirt: Violet & Claire via TJMaxx [similar here & here] | Earrings: Piperlime | Bracelets: Sira & Mara, Express, Kohl's | Rings: H&M [similar here], Kohl's |Pants: Jou Jou via TJMaxx [similar here & here] | Clutch: Malibu Bows via Etsy | Pumps: Target [similar here]

As I have said about leather shorts, the same goes for leather pants: if you don't own a pair, get some! They're the perfect casual meets dressy, plus, they'll keep you warm in the winter.

P.S. The camera was apparently unappreciative to my matching lipstick on my lips and decided it would rather shoot as if I had white lipstick on. Thanks, Cam.

  4. That sweatshirt looks SO cute with the dots & leopards! And I think a good GNO is totally worth some ripped pants :)

    1. Thanks, Angi! The layers really transform the whole look, huh? I have an addiction to layering sweaters over collared shirts [obvi].
