Sequin skirt remix


I'm actually on the road again for work, but the Spotlight Weekly linkup theme this week hosted by Elle and Jacqueline is "Sequins and Sparkle" and I really wanted to participate. Remember this skirt from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale? No? Let's refresh your memory.

See original post here

I always like to see how I styled things last, so for the sake of comparison, I pulled this out of my archives. Not a completely different night and day transformation between the two looks, but I did decide to make this a little more work to holiday happy hour friendly with my styling today. 

Sunnies: Vince Camuto | Earrings: Kate SpadeNecklace: Express (option) | Bag: Forever 21 | Top: Express (similar in Tile Blue) | Ring: Banana RepublicBracelets: Stella and Dot 1,2 and NadriSkirt: JOA (budget optionsplurge option) | Shoes: Christian Louboutin

Since I hadn't worn this skirt since the summer, I was excited to style it a little bit differently for the current season. I almost reached for my black portofino instead, but at the last second, decided to pick up the blues in the skirt with this cobalt one. My new clutch was the perfect finishing piece. The arm strap is actually quite convenient, and it visually looks stunning as well. When I saw that it was marked from its already low price of $16.90 down to $11.24, I started trying to think of anyone and everyone I could order this for! It's a great piece at an unbeatable price. (That's code for: BUY ALL OF THEM.)

The $650 EXPRESS Gift Card giveaway runs until Monday!

  3. Ooh, yes, I love this skirt with the blue portofino. I think black would be sleek and sophisticated as well, but the blue is so pretty and nice with the colors in the skirt. I'm sooo glad you made me get that necklace, too. I get so much use out of it!

  7. This skirt is so lovely! It's also a great length. I love the ways you styled it. The one is more casual, and the other more dressy. Really nice.
