Happy Mother's Day! - Purple Sequins Outfit



Happy Mother's Day!
If you have a chance please stop over at my mother's blog : Expression Express.
She is an author with two published Books, published plays as well as another under contract.
I'm sure it would brighten her day if you stopped by to leave a comment!
Share the love. : )
Now on to my outfit post for the day. BTW - last night we went to see a Nirvana cover band but I haven't yet finished uploading the pictures. Stay tuned!
So I don't know about you, but I love sequins! Sometimes they can look really super tacky so you have to be careful how you wear them. This is actually a sequin dress but I wanted to dress it down for a more casual daytime look. The white really brightens it up and makes it more of a springtime look. It is still chilly (boohoo) so I have to balance the bare legs with a longer sleeve and a taller boot.
How about you - do you love or hate sequins?

  3. Wow! Congratulations to your mom on being published! I used to always want to be an author and I used to write short stories. I guess now my blogging is my writing outlet. Love your purple sequin top. Happy Mother's day to you and yours!

  5. Congrats to your Mom.
    I love Sequins. I'm featuring my friend in the next few weeks (when I'm back in the UK) and her collection (quite a lot) of '80s butterfly batwing tops.
    Hope you're having a good Sunday.
