A Bit of Shine


I never thought of myself as one who could do sequins, but this little top has me thinking other wise especially paired with the pretty drapey pleated short. I do know that I am not one to go without shades and aviators are my style of choice, well at least for now. I think a nude sandal would be lovely and help my short little legs not seem so stumpy. This bracelet had me at hello when I tried it on in the shop the other day, so pretty, but alas it stills sits in the shop. I would give my face a little color with this blush and it's gold little speckles. I think this outfit would work going to the zoo or a small casual dinner party. Since we went to the zoo yesterday then I am thinking dinner party and at my dinner party I would light the lovely candles on the lovely sconces and serve an array of cheeses on this lovely platter. Would you care to join me?

That bracelet is so pretty. I really like the mix of casual with sequins, and I found a lovely top at J Crew which I've fallen in love with. Love to join the dinner too!

The combination of color with a hint of sparkle goes hand in hand.
I'll bring the wine! xo

What a great outfit. I'm a big fan of neutral colours bases. This is great with a dash of sparkle to brighten things up! :)

I would care to join you! At first I thought that sconce was a bracelet, but now I see that it is jewelry for the walls. Another lovely round up here!

I'm not a sparkly girl either but this outfit has changed my mind. I thought that sconce was a bracelet too. Oh, and I'll bring dessert!

If there is cheese being served, I will definitely be there!

I'm not into sequins usually either, but I think I could get on board with that top as well.
