NYE 2011: Daytime Sequins

Monday, January 2, 2012

What I'm Wearing:
Top: Forever 21
Denim Jacket: Life in Progress via Forever 21
Skirt: Shop Kempt. "Emella Sequin Skirt" (here)
Watch: Michael Kors
Flats: Steve Madden
I wore this to see The Ides Of March during the day on New Year's Eve. Originally, I had planned to only wear this sequined skirt for NYE at night, but I loved it so much that I wanted to get some wear out of it during the day (of all days to sport sequins...I'm pretty sure NYE takes the cake). So, to make it daytime appropriate, I dressed it down with a cotton top, denim jacket, and swapped the black ankle booties I was planning to wear with it at night for simple black flats. Although I still got a few strange looks from some people in the movie theater, I was pretty proud of myself for boldly sporting sequins during the day.

P.S. This skirt is by far my favorite Shop Kempt. purchase so far. They are one of my lovely blog sponsors (based right out of my hometown!) and if you haven't checked them out already...I highly encourage you browse their online boutique. You can see other bloggers styling their items here!

P.P.S. Happy 2012! Here's to my first post of the new year!


  1. You are totally rocking that skirt! I love the stripes and jacket to tone it down some, but it still sparkles : )



  2. Oh, you look super cute in that skirt!! I love that you're remixing it right after NYE! And you did a great job styling it casually. The stripes, denim and flats help tone it down a bit.

  3. thank you!! I actually wore this during the day before NYE...but my post from actual new years eve wearing this skirt will be up soon! Glad I was able to wear it dressed up and dressed down!

  4. thank you! I was hoping the denim would absorb some of the sparkle...but not too much! haha

  5. Boldly sporting sequence anytime is worthy of a fist bump girl!

    You look awesome!

    Happy 2012!

  7. i immediately knew that sparkle skirt was shopkempt it looks gorgeous on you! i love what you paired with the skirt, it is a great chic and casual look!

  8. this is so cute. i've done sequin tops in the daytime but I haven't tried a skirt. it works, huh??? nice!

  9. This is fantastic! I'm always afraid to wear sequins during the day but you totally rocked it! I think the denim jacket is perfect!

  10. thank you! I was definitely afraid too...but I threw on my jacket and just went with it! haha
