The temps have come down enough for me to wear the pretty sequins from the Memorial Day thrift haul. Sequins are my go to outfit for a night out when I don't feel like futzing about. It's statement jewelry. It's sparkle. It's fancy dress with jeans. Add the heels I can barely walk in anymore and I'm already for to party. By party, I mean sit down with a cocktail in my hand.
Just when I think I've curbed my obsession with sequins, I find a top too beautiful to resist. The bright candy colored sequins are different from the shiny tones of the rest of the collection. It was also purchased on a sale day and only cost $3.
With my other vintage sequin tops, I had to make decisions on the shoulder pads. Shoulder pad removal can be hit or miss. The shape can totally flop and ruin the look of the top without them. I was totally okay with leaving these shoulder pads in. The shape is very natural and they're not football sized. If anything, they make my shape look more hourglass.
I don't want to see summer go but I am glad to put my toes away without a pool of sweat forming in my shoes. I bought these pumps to wear in spring but it got hot real fast. I haven't worn them much at all. Now I'm ahead of the fall wardrobe game.
I absolutely intend to keep soaking up the summer weather. I'm still wearing shorts and I'm still wearing dresses. I'm happy to see a few pieces like the sequin tops return though.
Are you going dressing for fall or holding on to summer?
