What I Wore Wednesday: Holiday Sequins

This Monday NotBlondeHusband, Blondie Boy and I had to meet my Grandmother-in-law in town for coffee and then I shopped around a bit before meeting the rest of the Glasgow Women's Aid board for Christmas drinks later on.  I needed an outfit that wouldn't look out of place for three fairly different activities so this is what I came up with.


Fearless Tiny Skull Studs- Dogeared
Black Ruffle Cardigan- Old Navy
Black Sequin Top- Loft Outlet
Charm Bracelet- Merci Maman
The Flirt Skinny Jeans-Old Navy
Black Boots- Sketchers
Charcoal Coat- Zara (not pictured)

I know I wear those boots and jeans all the time but when it is wet and cold it means my feet and ankles stay dry and that is pretty important factors in Glasgow! I wanted a bit of sparkle as this was the closest I was getting to a Christmas night out but I didn't want to look out of place in the John Lewis cafe, shopping or in the pub either.








If you are looking for the winner of my Merci Maman giveway it will be posted later today on the original Merci Maman post once a winner is verified.

I think I had the jeans were hand-me-ups in another post but you are 100% correct :)

Melaina25 said...

You are welcome! I always forget to link to things myself :)

Melaina25 said...

Thank you! I was contemplating my Versace leggings but I don't think they'd have worked in any of those situations on reflection!

Melaina25 said...

I have another pair of jeans but Glasgow in winter means the ground is always some form of wet mush and skinnies mean they are tucked in and dry :)

Melaina25 said...

Gotta love Loft :)

Melaina25 said...

I hope you find some great new reads!

Melaina25 said...

Hi. Thank you for stopping by my blog. I am reluctant to use the badge you have for my link-up to you because the girl is pictured wearing a mini skirt. I don't wear short skirts because of religious convictions. If you want to supply another badge, I'll use that. For now, I'll just use text.Thanks. D

Hi Danielle! Sorry for late reply-- you can totally use just a text link  xoxo
