Sequins & Balloons

Balloons and Sequins

Given the name of my blog, I’m sure it’s of no surprise to you that I gravitate toward sequins. Shoes, tops, skirts, dresses – I have to have them. This top is so old it can be considered vintage, because I borrowed it from my mom’s closet circa 1998 and still am finding excuses not to return it (sorry Mom). But I love how it fits just right – not baring too much decolletΓ©, and the color is heavenly.

And my Obakki skirt is just so flowy and fun that I couldn’t resist pulling it out to wear it again.

  • “Vintage” sequined top (thanks, Mom)
  • Obakki skirt (just heard you can enter code SPRING SPREE at checkout to get 25% off & free shipping!)
  • Colin Stuart booties
  • Gold multi-strand necklace from Urban Outfitters (no longer available however this is a pretty alternative)
  • Vintage Rolex
  • Tights, Merona (Target)

Guess what? I’m turning 26 on Saturday (May Day, baby)! Will you join me in the festivities?

    Is that skirt high waist? I've never seen you wear it that way.
    love the shoes! You didn't say where they're from though.

    oops! it's up now. they're colin stuart, and I believe i ordered them from Victoria's Secret back in the day (when booties weren't in style–and thus never had much gall to wear them back then)
    the skirt isn't high-waist, just wore it that way in previous post – i'm just short so i hiked it up for that one πŸ™‚

    Very cute….Love Target, love the headband. Funny what you said about the booties. I feel the same way. I would wear them the way you have here. I'm short too. My question is…where would you wear this outfit??

    I think black with pink is so cute… the shirt is beautiful and so are the shoes.

    Hey Julie! I would wear this to my birthday party (if I was having one) or any occasion where it would be appropriate for me to be the center of attention (at least for a little while). πŸ™‚
