Daytime Sequin

I am a huge fan of Pinterest, it is one of my favourite things to mine. I can get home decor ideas or plan a kids birthday party. Pinterest is my favourite inspirational tool. My favourite pinner right now is Sarah Hubert from Sarah Hubert's Style - a lifestyle blog. Sarah recently gave me a blog award and I will be honouring her (I also won another Liebster award from Natalie, blogger over at Peg City Lovely) and answering all her questions at the end of this week.

It never ceases to amaze me how many outfits pins there are on Pinterest, moreover because they are pinned by real women I can re-create the look or be challenged  by the look and interpret it in my own way. I love Vogue editorial fashion, but it's not for my everyday, more my fantasy world. Pinterest is the everywoman's piece of the cyber universe.

I have a white Joe Fresh sequin long sleeve top that I usually wear out to dinner or drinks. I saw a daytime sequin look on Pinterest and was inspired to replicate it and actually wear it. I went grocery shopping, dropped off dry cleaning and hit Costco wearing a top I bought just for the evening. The older I get the more balls (yeah I just wrote that) I have. I don't care what the mean girls say about me (they exist at every age and social class), I'm wearing sequence during the day...plus I'm six feet tall and now know how to use my height for intimidation...no longer the tall geeky nerd in the corner.

Tried to take pictures in a different spot...not too sure about this...

I love this spiked gold and pave bracelet from Cocoa Jewelery. It is available at select Shoppers Drug Mart Beauty bars. It is pliable so does not get in the way when you are wearing it, so that means I didn't stab myself or my child. Call your local Shoppers to see if Cocoa Jewelry is available there, this will save you time and frustration if you are not sure.

  3. I remember seeing this sequin top! Looks really cute.
    And I hate mean girls. There are lots of them at the kids school. I often try to put it on real thick on purpose. ;O

  4. Sequin, not sequence. ;)

  5. Awesome outfit! The jacket is great:)


  6. Hey, Iva! Thanks for the shout out!!! I love Pinterest for so many of the reasons you've listed above. I have so much fun searching for and interpreting the myriad of ideas I find there. I say good for you for "having the balls" to wear sparkle during the day. What are rules for if not to be broken??? ;) ~Sarah

    P.S. Can't wait to read the answers to the questions!

  7. Love this look - it's a great sweater! Avril xx

  8. I LOVE sequins for daytime. It's so chic and unexpected. You look fabulous, and I love how you paired that sequin top with more masculine pieces. Such a great juxtaposition!
