Sequin and Jersey







 Sequin Gold Blazer - MeeMee.com
Celine Paris Tee - eBay
Grey Midi Dress (worn as skirt) - Primark
Chloe Inspired Boots - Chockers
Gold Chain Necklace - Topshop
Spike Bracelet - Topshop


As soon as I spotted this blazer I knew it was meant to be. Over the past couple of weeks I have been totally inspired by ways to wear sequins and I never imagined I would want to wear them in such a great quantity! It's a very dark gold, with shiny sequins on black fabric which helps to dull down the overall sparkle. The two front pockets are outlined in leather and the whole blazer is structured without being stiff.
Big thanks to MeeMee for this one - it's a new favourite of mine and it's only £30 in the sale!

I decided to dress it down with a jersey midi skirt (actually a dress) knotted to one side and my new Celine (fake) tee from eBay that Victoria kindly pointed us all in the direction of! The seller only has these left in a XL but I bought mine in a Medium and it's pretty spot on for any size 10s. I think the XL would have a lovely oversized fit. I thought my gold strap and stud ankle boots would go well with the outfit - tying sparkle and sparkle together with the casual jersey in between. 

I'm planning to wear this for a meal and drinks out with friends. Next on my wishlist are a pair of sequin leggings! But I'm not sure what possible occasion I will have to wear those...

  2. Oh I love the blazer! It's so nice and I like how you've jazzed up a casual outfit with it. I know everyone and their mothers have bought the celine top at the moment, me included! It's so nice though. xx

  16. Such a great outfit, I would never have put any of these together but it looks great! You have such lovely blue eyes too. A pair of sequined leggings sound amazing but probably quite hard to dress down for an everyday look :P

  21. I also bought a medium in this top but was a little disappointed that it wasn't exactly like the one in the pictures and kinda of wish I'd bought a bigger size now aha! I could send it back but the hassle of returning it to Hong Kong doesn't quite seem worth it:)
