I love a bit of sparkle on a day like this

I love mixing my pieces in my wardrobe. Let it be summer pieces mixed in with winter or giving my going out clothes a casual spin. This skirt is one of my many favorites to do that. Considering how much sequin embroidery it's got, I got it for a bargain. I've worn it a couple of times going out and layered it with a shirt and jumper combo here. ( that combo was also picked as look of the day by look magazine :-)

The weather s been amazing for a change. I mean truly truly amazing right?? But sadly I haven't been feeling too well to dress up or go out much. Hence the reason I haven't been blogging much.

I always reach for this skirt when I need a bit of cheering up. I don't really care or think much about what I'm going to wear it with because I just base my whole look around this skirt. I only have to consider where I'm going and the sort of look I want to go for. The skirts got a under layer so you can't really feel the sequins on your skin plus it's surprisingly very light weight considering the amount of sequins used.

I wasn't going for a specific look or anything, just wanted something casual and comfortable. A vest top underneath and threw in one of my denim shirts. I love the texture clash and the fact that a denim shirt is the last thing anyone would prolly think to wear with a skirt like this. The skirt doesn't really have a waist band so I use a belt to give my waist a bit of definition. These flat sandals are really comfy and I love the colours and the style( oh! The joy of getting my toes out)

I have definitely got my money s worth with this skirt already plus it would have been such a shame to hang it in my wardrobe and wait for a special occasion or a night out to wear it.

Wow, this sparkling skirt looks great with the basic denim shirt and the also basic t-shirt. And your belt is so nice. :)
