Houndstooth Jacket + Stripped Sequin Skirt

Happy Friday!

I know I missed Wednesdays post but the day really got by me. Normally, I schedule my posts but I have not been scheduling like I would like too. Honestly, sometimes I’m so burnt out from work, I don’t know what to write about. I think that maybe why I didn’t post on Wednesday. Life can sometimes be hectic and too much.

Today’s look is all about pattern, texture and material mixing. Ya’ll, I have a real obsession with sequin. If I could wear it everyday, everywhere (well, except the gym) I would. I bought this skirt as a treat over 3 three years at Anthropologie – yes, that’s how serious I am about sequin that I paid full price for this skirt. I have also never worn it. Shame. Shame. That’s exactly what motivated me to wear the skirt. Most people think that sequin should only be worn for evening events but that is so not the case. Sequins can elevate any look, day or night. This is the perfect brunch, day date or family event outfit.

The skirt was actually not the item that I planned on wearing originally. The jacket was the piece I intended to wear because its houndstooth and it was for the series. What a better way to transition from houndstooth to the next pattern – by mixing them together. The jacket was purchased from American Apparel Outlet, years ago (college days) and its remained a favorite for years. Its a light jacket that can be worn alone (as a top) or as a jacket. For this outfit, I wore it alone, with no top underneath. The shoes were my birthday present from last year that I cannot get enough of; these are THE most comfortable pair of heels I own. Finally, I pulled this clutch from the archives (remember the plexiglass craze?) for a little razzle dazzle.
