Casual Sequin

J Crew Sweater, Zara Pants, Michael Kors Button Down, Balenciaga City, Stuart Weitzman Shoes, Karen Walker Sunglasses. Lipstick: Revlon Hot Coral
I must say, It was sort of weird going from high 80’s and wearing shorts to a much cooler temperature that required pants and a light sweater. This past weekend consisted of way too much delicious food, watching Black Swan for the 3rd time (has easily become one of my favorite movies) and a little shopping in Soho. The weekend is coming to an end and I’m about to hit the sack and play Words with Friends (addicting iPhone game) in bed. Hope everyone enjoyed their weekend!

    Those bright bursts of colour on your nails and lips keep this look summery, despite the cooler weather. Absolutely adore that sweater — any excuse to wear sequins is a good one, if you ask me!

    Thanks for the inspiration, I've really been enjoying your blog 🙂

  • Lynzy

    First of all, loving this sequin sweater, I've been eyeing it at J.Crew for awhile and you definitely confirmed my suspicions. I saw Black Swan in the theaters and I have to say that it is in my all time top 3. It's funny because the majority of others I talked to really didn't like it, I thought it was beautifully made and the more I watch it, the more I find that I didn't the first time around.
