Summer Sequins

{Cardigan—Anthropologie "Alpheratz Sweater", Striped Tank—Forever 21 (similar), Boyfriend Jeans
AG "Cuffed Tomboy" (shop // remixed), Belt—H&M, Satchel—Anthropologie, Wedges—Cathy Jean}
Brace yourself...I'm about to go on one of my rants where I brag about what a good deal I got at Anthropologie and do an imaginary little sale dance. So, if you're not okay with this, then stop reading here. Okay here goes...

I found this lovely little sequin number in the return bin at work for $9.95 and it was love at first sparkle! Yes, I'll admit, I definitely would not have paid the steep $178 for this bold statement piece. But, for 10 dollars, I managed to convince myself it was okay to wear bright sequins in the middle of summer with jeans and wedges. Perhaps the people that gave me funny looks at my local Starbucks while I was on my way to my internship might say otherwise. But, for now, I'm standing by my bold wardrobe choice and now broadcasting it on my blog so the whole world (aka my 300 readers) can see how sparkly I am.

New motto: If my outfit manages to reflect enough sunlight to blind someone or make them look away...then it's been a good day.

P.S. These photos were taken by my bff Hayley (we did a little double blog photoshoot), who has recently started her own blog Old, New, & Something Blue! Hop on over and say hello :)
