Sequins for Day


Today I am continuing to participate in the "Summer Trends" challenge presented by Megan Mae Daily and Casual Chic Kiki. Today's trend challenge was 'Sequins for Day'
 
This tank is totally covered in large (read: not subtle) sequins all over the front. Thank goodness the back is plain cottan. It is a bit itchy actually when my arms touch my sides. A soft cardigan toned it down a bit.
 Clutching my  morning coffee after the type of morning i had it was my best friend!

Added a simple brown stone and gold charm as it needed 'something'...

 Wore the wedges I bought last winter the ones that came with a fur trim. Without the fur they totally work this season as well. They are a bit high for the day with kids but can handle them at preschool when there is minimal walking...
Sequin Tank - Charlotte Russe
Cardigan- Guess
Pants and Necklace (and sunglasses) - Forever 21
Wedges - Victoria's Secret

Today's Activities: Preschool in the morning. But before that it was a hell of a morning. My daughter woke up from what we think was a nightmare at 5:50 AM. got her to sleep but we had a tough time ourselves so by the time we slept it must have been late as we both overslept until 8 AM. woke up in a frenzy and dressed the kids right away which of course they resisted since that is not our morning routine. Then there was the whole waffle vs. french toast and whip cream vs. syrup controversy with my son. After that endless wining about wanting more food some toy or another and refusing to potty. Once we got to preschool things calmed down, thank goodness. After naps we plan to do the swim class than have dinner out with the kids then do grocery shopping. My husband is playing tennis after work so this is the plan I came up with (notice how it avoids cooking dinner!)...

  3. i can attest to having mornings like these! i took my son off the bottle a couple weeks ago, so his whining has reached an all time high!

    keeping everything the same color is a great way to tone down those sequins. love your necklace.

  21. Defne' cim, bu kıyafet sana coooook yakismis. Zaten harika bir fizigin var ama bu pantalon ve botlarla bacaklarin daha da bir ince, uzun gorunuyor. Harika! Pullu bluz da çok guzelmis. Ne guzel di mi artik hersey her an giyilebiliyor. Eskiden boyle bir bluz anca gece giyilirdi halbuki. Yasasin ozgurluk!

    Cok tesekkur ederim, yorumuna ve ilgine. Bir kac gundur daha iyi hissediyorum. Evet, donem donem oluyor boyle inis cikislar.
    Opuyorum, sevgiler

  22. I had a similar issue when wearing my sequin top. They're cute but itchy! Layers are always a good thing. Insanely cool boots.
