Mondays Need Sequins (and Caffeine)

I was digging in my closet Saturday afternoon in search of a missing pair of H&M skinny boyfriend jeans that got lost in the two blackholes known as "laundry hamper" and "clothes rack".  Amidst the Great Jeans Search of 2014, I stumbled upon the outfit below, which I had purchased during November's Cyber Monday sales: the top and pants for a great price from Maude Boutique, and necklace from Hot Mama. I had honestly forgotten about buying the top and bottoms, but saw them lurking in the back of my top closet rack, all pressed and ready for their debut.

I mean, we all love the idea of a beautifully fitted, cropped trouser and a feminine sweater, but what sold me on the outfit were the sequins in the top. (What? You expected something more complex?) Yup, suffice it to say I'm a sucker for anything sparkly, you see. Like a moth to a flame...

Sweater and pants purchased from Maude  // tassel necklace purchased from Hot Mama (similar here) // Heels via ASOS last year (similar here) // bag c/o Emilie M. // bracelet from Groopdealz (similar here) // sunnies found here
Nail polish is "Lincoln Park After Dark" by OPI, found here

The weather may be a tad brisk, but the warm tones of this outfit definitely won't leave you feeling the chill. 

Special thanks to my dear husband, S. Saturday marks the third year in a row he's been clicking away at the camera for moi.  My gratitude for his sacrificing of many a televised sporting event, all in the name of blog photos, runs deeper than my love for stilettos and slingbacks.

To the moon and back, sugar. Love you, I do.


  1. A little sparkle on a Monday sure makes starting the week a little easier! Such a cute outfit. :) Hope you have a great week!

  2. I'm also a sucker for anything sparkly--just one hint of a sequin and I'm swooning!

  3. We always need sparkle in our lives. Specially for a day like mondays =D

  6. Love that sweater especially how it is tailored in the front..so pretty!

  7. You wear it well, girl!!! Sparkles makes all days warmer and brighter! Thanks for sharing :)

  8. How's Caroline sleeping these days?? Mama looks tired!

  9. Lincoln Park After Dark is hands down my favorite nail color!! I usually get gel nails, since I'm so rough on my hands that a normal manicure is lucky to last more than 24 hours, but I always try to get a color that matches LPAD.. It's just so pretty.

    Also - goodness sakes you have beautiful hair. So pretty!

  10. Cutest outfit! Those pants are such a fun and unique pattern!
