glitter, sequins and all that jazz.

 denim top, jeans: Belk / teal and sequined tank: f21 / farron boots: c/o Blowfish Shoes / mustard ring: Le Mode Accessories

living in a small town doesn't call for a lot of glitter and pizzazz.
there is a part of me that loves the small town living but i am a big city girl at heart.
i wore this glittery, black sequined top to a Christmas party last year with a sassy black blazer and dress pants and kicked around in fancy black heels. soooo...just because i don't see a glitter-filled party in the near future, i still had the craving to rock around in some sequins today - even if it was filling orders and sewing all day.

then again, every day should be a party in my book.
live life like it is. 
rock out in some sequins and glitter this weekend - even if it's under some denim or over your PJs. 

much love.
[happy friday, friend.]

p.s. did you enter this fantabulous giveaway yet?! well, you should.

Follow much love, illy

  10. I LOVE glitter and sparkle!!! And this weekend I think that will be all I rock [partly because it's my birthday weekend hehe] and I'm from a small town and when I go back to visit [Oklahoma] I bring all my Cali love with me. My gma loves it! She tells everyone I'm from Hollywood [even though I'm not]. lol.
    Love this!

  18. That's one of my favorite parts of living in Chicago--there is always a reason to rock some sequins. Even if I'm just going to the grocery store it seems justified...

    Love your top, woman :)

  20. the first thing I bought when I moved to Atlanta was a black BCBG cocktail dress because I just KNEW I NEEDED It....because by December I would have a handsome boyfriend to take to our fabulous office Christmas party......I've seen no boys come to my yard and we're having a white elephant during a pizza lunch on friday. #facepalm.

    But the moral of this comment....is that somehow I'm going to learn to repurpose my Christmas office party outfit into something more practical like you did! :)

    the side pony rules!
