No Such Thing as Too Much Sparkle

Alot of the fashion magazines have been writing articles about incorporating clothes that are traditionally for a fancy night out into your everyday wardrobe. Well, I'm one to always practicewhat I preach. What fun is it saving sequins and glitter for evening and special occasions when you can rock them during the day?

The trick to make this look work is pairing something glitzy with a piece thats more utilitarian. For example, I downplayed the glam factor of my blush colored sequin tank & sparkly necklace with skinny olive green cargo pants. I added even more dimension in with a Buffalo Plaid scarf, DownEast basics sent me this one to try out (check them out; they're like Anthropologie for less!).


Alicia, of Cheetah is the New Black, is one of the masters of sequins & daytime glamour! Check out her blog for more inspiration!


I stumbled upon this image of J. Crew's Holiday Launch & had to laugh because the look on the mannequin was so similar to my outfit!

Daytime Sparkle
Would you wear sequins and sparkle in the daytime?

Great title! I love incorporating sparkles into my everyday looks. I have a great gold sequin skirt that I love pairing with a black tee...even if the bf says it reminds him of show choir :)

I totally would! The key is just to be subtle and not do too much of a good thing.

I totally need to buy more sparkly clothes - I think they dress up any outfit, and with the proper restraint, I think they could be totally perfect for daytime! They'd definitely liven up a blah winter wardrobe - this is a trend I'll have to try out!

I love this idea! I have a few sequin tops and I've usually saved them for night, but I love this day look. Maybe I'll have to invest in a cream-toned one like yours :)

Thanks for this inspiration! I've been wanting to work the Swarovski crystal headband I wore for my wedding into some kind of more casual outfit. Daytime might be the time to do it!
