What I Wore Wednesday: Eurovision, Sequins, Skulls and The Mad Blog Awards

This week I've been wearing military jackets and funny hats and representing Denmark in the Eurovision song competition and I made it to the finals!!! Okay I haven't but I've seriously been bombarded on Facebook and Twitter saying I look like the Danish Eurovision contestant--what do you think?  
I do have Danish ancestry so I guess it isn't that big of a stretch. So I wasn't living it up in Azerbaijan at Eurovision semi-finals but I also wasn't really leaving the house in anything other than sweats. I had to play catch-up with work post-Cybher and NotBlondeHusband was out quite a lot so I really didn't leave the couch.

So I'm going to ask you all for help again. I've bought two tops from HM and not worn either of them because I'm not 100% sure how to style them. 




I absolutely love the tops and with the weather getting warmer I'm running out of time to wear the sequinned top but also it isn't quite warm enough for just the skull tank top. How would you wear them?

Also a HUGE thank you to everyone who nominated me in The Mad Blog Awards because I am a finalist for best Fashion Blog! Thank you SO much! If you have a moment and you link up or like What I Wore Wednesday would you please vote for me?  I appreciate everyone's help!

OMG - I LOVE the skull top! I'd wear with skinny jeans, sandals, and if you're cold a cardigan, perhaps in pale pink.

Melaina25 said...

Both gorgeous! I think the sequin top would be fab with skinny jeans or even coloured jeans. The skull top too actually. I love H&M! 

Melaina25 said...

I'd wear the tank with colored skinny jeans and maybe a jacket (blazer style) if it's cool.  Cute tops!

I've fallen in love with that skull top.  And, just because everyone else says it, I KNEW I was right about the Denmark girl.

Melaina25 said...

I'm usually not a fan of skull-printed things, but when you add sequins I can't resist.  I think both tops would look good with black or another color skinny jeans.

I love those two tops! And yeah, I would probably just wear them with jeans and flats.

Melaina25 said...

Cute tops! The Skull one i would wear over white or grey T shirt with a pair of skinnies. :)

Melaina25 said...

I would wear the sequin top over a striped tank dress and strappy heels. The wide neckline will allow a bit of the dress to be peeking out and it will be a cool twist on a classic look. Thanks for hosting this link!

Melaina25 said...

Thanks for hosting. Tweeted your liky.

Love the sweater!  Sparkly!

I'd love to see the skull tank with a softer blazer - printed tees under structured colored blazers is one of my favorite looks!!

Melaina25 said...

I was thinking about a blazer maybe!

Melaina25 said...

I'm a sucker for sparkles!

Melaina25 said...

Thanks! The more the merrier :)

Melaina25 said...

Now I just need a stripey tank dress :)

Melaina25 said...

Ooh I hadn't thought about layering!

Melaina25 said...

HM is the best right?

Melaina25 said...

It is in the current season stock at HM and I think it was like £6.99?

Melaina25 said...

I might have to succumb to coloured skinny jeans!

Melaina25 said...

As you can probably tell I adore H&M!

Melaina25 said...

I'm going to have to lose 5lbs to fit back in my skinnies!

Melaina25 said...

Oh I love a good fashion linky. Thank you!

Melaina25 said...

yay you being a finalist! i will cast my vote for you for sure. I love both tops, the skull one especially, with jeans and a cardi or blazer... would love that!!

Melaina25 said...

Ooo, I love your sequin top.  I'd pair it with dark blue skinny jeans, a black blazer, and flats.  Super chic.

Melaina25 said...

Voted for you.  Done and done!

Melaina25 said...

hmm keep the jumper for chilly nights in pub garden? Probably with fitted capris and black vest?
Vest top with denim shorts.

Melaina25 said...

cute sequin top- maybe wear with black skinnies or jeggings and flats.  Thanks for another great link up

Melaina25 said...

Love the sequin top, very cute!!

Melaina25 said...

Hi Melaina! I like your sequined top, but I am not sure how I would wear it. It looks silver, so maybe with charcoal jeans and a nice pair of flats if it isn't too dressy, and a silver skirt, if it is?

Melaina25 said...

Cute top!  I'd probably pair it with skinnies, but my wardrobe is pretty limited (and I won't touch leggings).  Thanks for the post!

Melaina25 said...

I like both those tops.  I reckon they'd both look great with skinny jeans and flats.  You could wear the skull tank tucked into shorts and that would work, too. 

Melaina25 said...

Sequin top I would wear with white skinnies, am loving the tone on tone look at the moment. Adore the skull top but really not sure how I would wear it, probably as an evening look with super skinnies and super heels. x

Melaina25 said...

Great outfit I love Eurovision x

Melaina25 said...

Gorgeous. I love Eurovision x

Melaina25 said...

If last summer is anything to go by I'm sure you'll still have time for the sequin top! I do love a bit of sparkle but think either would be fab with jeans or a denim skirt maybe? Love the link up, I'm a What I Wore virgin linking in at the eleventh hour! :)

Melaina25 said...

My ass is not suitable for white skinnies and I will leave it at that lol. That is how I'm feeling about the tank--I had to have it but not sure how to wear it!

Melaina25 said...

Thanks! I'm not comfortable enough with my c-section tummy to tuck in shirts but that would be cute on someone without a muffin overhang :)

Melaina25 said...

I like leggings but not as pants. LEGGINGS ARE NOT PANTS :)

Melaina25 said...

It is actually more gold and cream and believe it or not is sort of sweatshirt material. A weird combo I know!

Melaina25 said...

Thanks! Who doesn't love sparkle?

Melaina25 said...

Thanks! I really need to lose 5lbs and fit in my skinny jeans!

Melaina25 said...

Ahh pub garden...somehow I don't think Blondie Boy would agree to that :)

Melaina25 said...

Thank you so much!

Melaina25 said...

H&M has the best clothes ever--they have a lot of crap too but just some amazing finds :)

Melaina25 said...

Thank you Rachel! The Skull top is part of the current collection and was only £6.99!

Melaina25 said...

Thanks Nicole :)

Melaina25 said...

I LOVE that skull top, it's awesome you could wear it with a cardi until it warms up.

Melaina25 said...

Hmmm not sure how brave you are .... the sequin skull top would look amazing with colored jeans and a plain cardigan or a jean jacket and great colored skirt!  pippa

Melaina25 said...

 I *thought* it was golden but then the 2nd pic made it look silver, so I wondered if it was lighting. Well, gold and creamy is great for your coloring! Almost an extension of it, which means you could wear it with a lot of things. Jeans, creamy pants, light brown. Lots of options! Good find!!

Melaina25 said...

I think you might seriously be SURPRISED how good thrifting is there in the UK ..... the girls Always, always find stuff that absolutelyl amazes me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   I will post some before and after next week that is pretty awesome!!!!! pippa

Skull top with black skinny jeans and killer heels! Fantastico!

Melaina25 said...

Melaina-Thanks for pointing out the captcha on my blog, I hate those! It is off now-Thank you for the tip and tutorial!

Melaina25 said...

Today is my first time discovering any link ups and I'm just so impressed with all of the other amazing bloggers I'm finding! I've added a link to your blog in my post and am just trying to figure out how to add your badge. Thank you for putting this together.

Cool skull shirt & sequinned top! Good Luck with the awards too!

Melaina25 said...

I would probably just throw a bright colored cardigan on top of the fun skull tank top! Thanks for hosting :)

Melaina25 said...

Both tops are great,can't wait to see which you decide to wear :)

Melaina25 said...

I LOVE that tank top. I think it would look great with a blazer. Does it work with your black one? Otherwise it might be a nice excuse to do some more shopping. You could also wear a long sleeve t-shirt under it until it warms up. I think a striped black and white would be fun, but any of those other colors would work. I wear my jean jacket over tanks a lot until it warms up.

Melaina25 said...

AGHHH! LOVE SEQUINS!  

Melaina25 said...

Kinda in love with those sparkles!

Melaina25 said...

Missed this because I've been busy! But I am loving that top - so rock chic. Something the new me would try. And you know I voted for you! xo

Melaina25 said...

So many awesome patterns in this round-up. Eager to see the themes this week :)
