Outfit of the Day: Sequins & Sunshine

It's time for another Outfit of the Day, this time featuring one of my new favorite cropped sequin shirts. I love that when I wear a piece of clothing with sequins, it is enough sparkle for an entire outfit (no jewelry needed!). Except for my watch, of course, because I feel naked without my timepiece!

Top: Nordstrom, Pants: Express, Heels: Jessica Simpson

For my makeup, I stuck with neutral brown tones on the eyes and a neutral blush on the cheeks. For lips, however, I decided to go with a bright red, because I feel like it contrasts the sequins of the shirt perfectly!


Because the sequins in the shirt are rose gold (as you can see in the below photo), I paired my rose gold watch with it to match!

Watch: Michael Kors

I paired the top with black skinny pants, a black cami (which for some reason is showing up grey in photos? It isn't noticeable in person), and grey suede heels.


These are some of my favorite heels. They're a grey suede with a hidden platform from Jessica Simpson and are super comfortable! I think they are a great way to switch things up from the classic black heel, and they go with almost anything!

Heels: Jessica Simpson

I barrel curled my hair using a 1" iron, then shook out the curls so they looked a bit more relaxed.


And now for a twirl! :)


I hope you all are having great weeks! Can you believe Christmas is almost here?!
xx, Allison

    I love the detailing on the sweater! your watch is so classic, i've been looking for one just like it. i admire that you wear pumps during the day, I haven't built up the power to do that yet. and of course the red lip looks great with your blonde hair!

I am looking forward for your new video about your running routine and stuff. I run by myself since approx. 6 years now.

    i found it!!!!! Allison it looks like were almost the same! what size did you get?

    ReplyDelete
  61. Actually, that isn't the same shirt. Even though taupe colors look the same, mine is by a different brand and is cropped (where this one is full length). I know because I looked at that one in store too, and decided with the other one! So I don't know what size to direct you toward with the one you linked... it's definitely cute though!! :)
