Everyday sequins?


I'll understand if wearing sequins in an everyday way may not be for you, but when you have a fabulous sequinned jacket just hanging around waiting for its moment, then sometimes you just have to make up an excuse to wear it. The wind was sharp and strong yesterday morning when Steve and I had planned to scoot out for a quick photo shoot. I'd already decided to wear these Boden chinos (quite old) along with this white tee shirt with the lovely gold blocking stating "Paris is always a good idea" (by Public Envy from TK Maxx), but this was chosen when we'd had a lovely sunny day. 


It wasn't too difficult a decision to pop this fabulous jacket over my outfit making this a very happy ensemble. The jacket is by Anothereight and was also from TK Maxx, a birthday find earlier on this year. It's nicely padded and so was the perfect toasty layer. I love the practicality of it being padded but also the impracticality of it being sequinned - cosy and beautiful, hurrah!



More posing and less bossing was pretty much what Steve was saying here. 


You've no idea what joy it is to have these brocade trainers in my shoe collection. The brand is Replay and they too were a wonderful TK Maxx discovery. Jazzy shoes are the best!


Accessories read like this - necklace was a present from Sasha, ring is preloved and sunglasses are from Quay Australia.


This is a grin-a-minute outfit. I'm frankly sequin mad, a true magpie collecting all things that are bright and sparkly. My passion doesn't rival Lisa, the Sequinist though! Check out her blog for sparkles in almost every feature.



It's a glorious Sunday morning as I sit writing this. In fact it's two weeks ago since Steve and I captured that other glorious sequinned offering on the beach on Easter morning (see here). I had a lovely swim after that shoot, but that's been my only swim in the past two weeks. The flu virus has just about passed and I may have a swim later on today after work. The enforced break from swimming has been a drag, but the longer it goes on the more difficult it seems to get back into the water. I think I could leave it forever and still find an excuse not the take the plunge. Yes, it's going to be a terrible shock to the system, but it's a deed that has to be done. Wish me luck!

  1. I most definitely wish you luck. Isn't it odd that we sometimes resist what is so good for us and what we love? I got a bad bug in February and although I'm recovered I haven't been back to the Yoga studio that I love. It's a 40 minute drive and that's been a factor , along with our impossibly snowy,cold and long winter... Just excuses. Yoga at home is good but not the same.

    This outfit is all coppery, golden, and delicious! The greenery surrounding you makes the colors even more vivid. That jacket is pretty wonderful and the trainers are too!

    1. How very right you are Judy. I do hope that you can face that long drive and get back into the swing of things again (if that's what you really want). I'm happy to say that I've had two early morning swims now and feel so much better for it. I feel more me again which is such a relief! Glad you like the golden delicious outfit - I shall forever refer to this jacket by that name. Thank you x

  6. Oh dear, I'm suffering with the flu thing at the moment and feel rough. I hope you're fully recovered. You look great anyway!

    Love the chinos and the jacket is gorgeous. But oh my, those trainers! I don' t wear trainers; only to walk in in Ireland and I find most trainers boring beyond belief, but I absolutely love these ones. Funky and jazzy and so, so stylish. What a brilliant buy...
