Sequin Sunday

Just call me Repetitive Rachel. For a few reasons, actually…

1. I’ve worn this outfit a few times over the past few weeks. Once with plaid flats, once with leopard flats and a chunky necklace to match the chunky sweater.

2. In my post decoding food-focused holiday wear, I outlined this outfit to a T. It was actually that outfit collage that convinced me to get the pants when Madewell was having a 30% off promotion!

3. I’ve worn this sweater, necklace, and flat combo before. See here.

My favorite thing about these pants has to be the versatility they have. You’re probably thinking, “Sequin pants are versatile? Give me a break, Jessica!” But I’m going to hold my ground on this one. You would normally think of sequin pants being worn in a dressier setting… A fancy dinner or a night out with pumps, a sequiny birthday celebration, NYE, etc. But they also work with a cozy sweater and flats on a random Sunday!

    Okay, I have a serious question about sequin pants/shorts – all I can think about is the sequins rubbing against each other when I cross my legs and it gives me the willies/makes me nervous about losing sequins. How often does that actually happen during wear?

    Fantastic Sunday outfit, though! ๐Ÿ™‚ xo

    OK, I’ll give you “versatile” if you’ll give us the lipstick back in your makeup routine – it made you shine even more!

      Ha! Give me a break, I was already wearing sequin pants on a Sunday morning to run and get a hot chocolate. A dark red lip AND sequin pants before noon? Too much ๐Ÿ™‚

    I AM OBSESSED with the pants! And I agree that they are totally versatile! I have been searching high and low for the perfect pair…I need to find some before winter is over! ๐Ÿ™‚

    This outfit looks fab on you, but I’m pretty sure that NYC is the only place that sequin pants are acceptable on a lazy Sunday! It is a bit more casual with the chunky sweater though ๐Ÿ™‚

    You are so bold! I tend to shy away from that many sequins. I am however debuting a silver sequin bolero at my company holiday party (new year party) tonight. Fingers crossed I can pull it off!

    Lovvve the fisherman sweater! I swear I’ve been on the hunt for one for months and have yet to find one. I’m definitely going to have to check out Juicy’s selection!
