Ooh look, a shiny thing

I’m a bit of a magpie when it comes to sparkles so, although I’m supposed to be buying less (guffaw), I couldn’t resist this sequin skirt.

In my defence, your honour, I have wanted one since time began (well, for quite a while) and while I really am trying to buy less, that kind of applies to buying less of what I already have, rather than stuff I don’t have, if that makes sense. As in there’s no point buying a new pair of jeans, but because I don’t have a sequin skirt it’s ok.

Oh, and also, it was only £6 so, like, no point not buying it. Good old George at Asda.

It’s pull on stretch style with elasticated waistband and fully lined. The sequins are tiny little ones that don’t feel too scratchy and they’re gunmetal rather than bright silver.

Here it is in the flesh (ceremoniously plonked on my lounge floor!)

Now, technically sequin season (i.e Christmas & New year) is over. But I didn’t buy this skirt with party time in mind. I want to wear it dressed down. I’m thinking tanned bare legs, flat shoes and a baggy tee in summer. Snuggly jumper and boots in winter. With denim or stripes.

Here’s my inspo:

I think this might work – roaring lion tank top and black studded hi-tops. I could add black tights and a leather jacket for milder winter days.

The key to keeping it casual will definitely be in the footwear. Add heels and it instantly becomes a more dressy piece. I think flat sandals in summer, maybe biker boots, a slouchy oversized bag and a messy bun will bring it into daywear.

I shall be experimenting! (and also not to say I won’t wear it dressed up as well!)

Thanks, as always, for reading! x
