Cargo Sequin Lookbook








On Friday, I posted my Sparkle and Shine Sequin Lookbook, a look perfect for a night out dancing, a celebration, or a party.  My look today shows sequins perfect for day into night.  A way to mix together a look with sequins for day is to think dressy yet casual.  My J. Brand skinny cargo pants are a great staple in my wardrobe, casual, but easily upgraded for night.  Outfitted with a simple tank and some jewelry or with this Express Sequin top and Topshop ruffled vest, it pairs with so many things.

Where to find my look:

Express Sequin Tank 

Express has so many sequin tanks that are affordable, super cute, and come in a variety of colors.  It’s a great place to get trendy items and they have deals often.  Right now they are offering $25 off your purchase of $75. 

BB Dakota Dustin Vest

My Topshop vest was purchased last year but I found this BB Dakota vest and love it.  What a great piece to wear into fall!   The herringbone tweed, faux leather trim and shawl collar make this a fantastic piece to add to your wardrobe.  

J. Brand Skinny Cargo Pants

Comes in 10 colors!  I rarely wear pants and stick to skinny denim, but I adore these pants, the fit, color, and how versatile they are in my wardrobe.  For another option, these Juicy Couture Skinny Cargos are similar and on sale right now.  

Christian Louboutin Pumps

My favorite black pumps which I wear so often!  If you can splurge for one pair of designer shoes, I recommend a beautiful pair of black patent pumps.  You’ll wear them forever.  Louboutin vary in fits so try on different designs, not every pair is comfortable and every foot is different.  I found these super comfortable and have danced in them for 5 hours.

    Such a great way to mix casual and fancy. Very cute! Also, is that a J12 watch?

    Hey – What is the name of your Christian Louboutins? Are they the decollettes? I have those and they hurt…so…much. Any tips to make them more comfy?

    @Ms. PopcornMs. Popcorn – if they are too tight, bring them to a shoe person and they can stretch them out. I've had that done before. I typically buy my Louboutins a half size bigger and they fit much better. A good shoe person should be able to help you fit better. If that doesn't work, sell them on ebay! Peeps love to buy the Louboutins and get yourself a more comfy pair.

    This is one of the looks that I really like. Feminine yet utilitarian. Love your outfit. I might go to the store to try on the sequin top from Express and see if XS fits me well.Happy Monday!
