Spotted Sequin in Stripes

spots + stripes spots + stripes

I've been seeing a lot of other bloggers sporting black, white and bright pink lately, which has always been a favorite color combo of mine. Black and white is a no-fail combination and the bold pink adds a nice touch of playfulness. Plus I think it's a great visual contrast to these dreary bone-chilling grey days.

So I had to jump on the color bandwagon and am sporting my cas'd out version of it. Plus there's nothing wrong with wearing sequins past the holidays, right? Even after a full work week into 2014, I'm still kind of in mental denial that all the festivities are over and that we're working our way into another new year. Time flies!

  2. I've already said this, but January needs some sparkle. I think that's my motto for this month. So sequins are definitely ok! Sequins any time!

  8. I'm probably not the one to say when is the best time to stop wearing sequins..I think I have a sequin addiction and tend to wear them all year. I love this look on you today and I'm glad you made the leap!

  11. Are you kidding [I think you are :-)] -sequins are always in! I really like the way you styled this. I just ordered a pink vest and I already have this polka dot top. Outfit idea! Thanks.

  12. I've been noticing the pink, black, and white, too. It's always been one of my favorite combos. I like that you made it even more playful by mixing the stripes and the dots in black and white and then adding the pop of pink on top of that. It has lots of personality and is so fun. And I agree - if it's gloomy out or if I feel gray, I try to trick myself into thinking things are sunny and carefree by dressing that way. It does help!

    1. It was bleary and wet this Saturday, so I "battled" it by wearing neon yellow.

  15. LISA! You're back! And stunning as ever! I'm digging the polka dotted sequins. If I ever get a raise, I'd totally raid J.Crew. And you know what? I think you've just inspired my next week's blog theme! ;p

  16. Time certainly does fly, but I've never felt like sequins were meant for holidays only. Sequins are fun, pretty, and meant to be worn all year, at all times.

  18. I might have to try this color combo out myself--I tend to gravitate toward red as an accent color with black and white.
    Love the polka dots + stripes!

    1. I think pink is a nice way to be softer on that color combo. I also like black, white and reddish-orange.

  19. i've never gravitated towards bright pink and black combos (it just reminds me of angsty junior high, haha) but with the white added in it's gorgeous! and a girl can never say no to sequins- i especially love that you made them casual! it's such a pretty contrast

  27. Oh my gosh - I was at a coffee shop yesterday and there were no less than 6 women sporting black and white with pops of bright pink. Six! I couldn't believe it. Now, I wonder if I would have noticed it if I hadn't just read your blog that morning. And who came up with the idea first, anyway? Who started the trend? A person? A magazine. So interesting. Love your take on the "trend"!

  30. I have that sequin top, too. It's amazing how versatile it is - it's truly a staple in my closet. You wear it well, and I agree that black + white + pink is perfect!

  31. Love the sequin top - I bought the Factory version in black w/white dots and white w/black dots this fall. I sized up to a M so I could layer it over a white Factory Stretch Classic dress shirt. This works well with wide-leg trousers and platform heels, or Retail Minnie's (full-length for me) and either flats or Martina Suede Wedges.

  36. Hello Lisa :)!
    A little late,but I wanted to wish you a very good year 2014 :)...
    You know me I have a great passion for your outfits and though I'm on a blogging hiatus I still remember you very well :).I like the playfulness of this outfit,but as I was strolling a bit through your blog I saw the 'Asheville Green' outfit and wow I was like:'That's me,that's exactly how I like to dress!'
    The look is very elegant and smart,yet so perfectly sexy!
    An outfit where I say:'Hm,I sure do look all smart and oh la la,but underneath it I'm one sexy thing :))!'
    I hope you get me :)!My best friend always laughs when I say this about an outfit.
    Anyway,I simply love it :)!!
    I send you a strong hug and I wish you all well!
    XOXOXO
