Everything's better with sparkles...

I have to admit that working from home can lead to some...let's say "interesting" outfits. Sometimes I just throw something on so I can get right to work and it's not until 5 pm that I realize what I am actually wearing.

Yesterday my outfit consisted of these crazy wide leg lounge pants - my husband hates them and thinks they look like karate pants - and a neon yellow tank top with mint colored flip flops. Not pretty. I am not even going to tell you what my hair looked like...

However, after 5 pm and a quick workout, I pulled myself together for a quick dinner out. The weather is getting a bit cooler so I chose my new J Crew gingham shirt. The weather is not yet COLD though, so I went with my Zara lace shorts. I finally got to wear my Ily Couture Bubble Necklace (I got a couple weeks ago but last week was not really the time and place to wear a cute statement necklace). The whole get-up was feeling a bit too preppy for me so in true "classy with a kick" fashion, I blinged it up with my J Crew knockoff pave chain bracelet and glitter flats from F21 (last mentioned here).

Glitter Flats from F21 // Pave Link Bracelet (J Crew Knockoff) from local store 
// Lucky Ring // Kate Spade Bag (Old, but loving this one)

 I mean everything is a little bit better with sparkles, right??

Amen!

BTW, I am doing a blog hop today so if you are new, please say hi and leave your links so I can follow you back! :)

Happy Tuesday - or as we call it my household - CHOOSEday. Don't ask...just start saying it yourself. It's fun!

  3. I agree, everything is better with sparkles! I love how you paired the gingham with the lace shorts. I'm going to keep this in mind the next time I wear my lace shorts :)

    1. They are HORRIBLE but so comfy, I can't give them away! :) I love working from home but it will be short lived as my company is opening an office locally. Right now I am a remote employee which is really nice. It's fun but you can get L-A-Z-Y and it's get hard to find time to shower! :)

  7. Oh, the contrast between what we look like at how and what we look like when we go out! :P And you're right, everything IS better with sparkles.

    1. Thanks Niki! It's a weird combo, but it worked. The flats are super fun. I coated them with mod podge and there is no glitter fall out. I think I am going to order the gold ones too.
