Sequins in the Rain

Most of Saturday was spent raining so I decided to add some sparkle to my rainy day with a new skirt I picked up a few weeks earlier. And yes, the weather was so bad that I really did need an umbrella to photograph the look (my mum actually stood inside the house while taking the pictures, so she didn't get wet).

Top - H&M
Skirt - H&M
Shoes - c/o Deichmann
Necklace - c/o Your Fashion Jewellery
Umbrella - Boden


I don't know if you can see this in the pictures, but the whole front of the skirt is covered in sequins. Definitely a fun way to wear sequins in a more casual way. I paired it with a plain tee, but snakeskin print shoes, from Deichmann. I have several Deichmann shoes and I love them all. I've been after a pair of fun booties like these for a while so I can't wait to wear them more over the next few months. I have a few fun nights out planned, so these are perfect. And I love how affordable everything from the Deichmann site it.


I had a great weekend. Saturday night was A LOT of fun, spent getting dolled up and going to a gig - but that evening will get its own post.

I spent yesterday afternoon literally glued to the TV, watching the last F1 race of the season. For those who watched it: wasn't it epic??! I spent the whole race unable to breathe! But I was over the moon when Vettel, despite coming 6th, won the championship...but back to fashion:



I have a wide range of candles keeping me warm this winter and they all smell gorgeous. The latest one to my collection is this one from The White Company. It's called Orange Grove and has such a gorgeous fresh scent to it. It has a lovely Orange-based smell to it - with a great little zesty edge. It comes in great packaging and will be a great Christmas present for someone, if you haven't sorted those out yet.



I also have another new necklace. Your Fashion Jewellery do amazing costume jewellery, with necklaces for women in particular. I love the horseshoe design and can't wait for it to bring me some good luck! There are great pieces up on the site and definitely worth looking at for some pretty jewellery, at some amazing prices. 


How would you wear sequins in a casual way?

Really fun look!
Love sequins for day :)



I have a sequin jacket (that I just posted about) that I can throw over jeans for a 'casual' look. But either way, it's hard to go wrong with sequins, methinks. Great blog, would you like to follow each other?

Dressed up or down, you can never go wrong with sequins as far as I'm concerned - and I have to say, although I would never have thought of it myself, the combination of sequins and snakeskin works incredibly well! I love the darker lipcolour on you, too :)

Rainy day sequins are the absolute best! I adore the way you've styled this mini, Sherin! :)

Hi lovely! I've just discovered your blog and it's awesome!
I think it's a huge example for me to follow, and a great inspiration!
For that I'm gonna follow you on GFC and I'd love if you do the same, so we could stay in contact and I keep learning about you!

XOXO, Collage Minimalista

I wear sequins regardless of whether I'm going out or dressing down. I have a top from Matalan that says 'OMG' on it in big glittery letters. Great with skinny jeans and black boots!

I love your little snakeskin boots!
