While Kimberley's been creating a monochrome look for summer (dangers and all!), I've been figuring out how to work sequins into my day time outfits. I love sequins at any time but it's true that they're usually more of a night time thing. I have persisted and, thanks to this top by Never Monday, I think I've found the way to do it. The key is to keep it colourful. The bright design on this mesh tee and the white base help to keep it summery. Tying the top in a front knot also gives a beachy/casual vibe. Matching it with simple blue jeans keeps the sparkle down to earth and perfect for a day of walking in the sun. Volia! I can shine all day long.

As much as I adore this top I'm still not quite sure what the motifs are. To start with I thought it was broccoli. I admit that purple broccoli does seem a little unlikely. Others have suggested cauliflower. Kimberley is convinced they're lilies. She's probably right, but I'm sticking with my first guess. It makes the top even more weird and unusual in my eyes. Which is something I always enjoy from my clothes.

Shoes | ASOS
Satchel | Yoshi
Ring | Made by me

To carry on the relaxed vibes I put a bit of a wave in my hair. It's an easy peasy style that I don't do often enough. I've since had quite a bit chopped  off so I may not be able to recreate it for a while. My hair had started to feel way too long and as a results a bit dull. Looking at these pictures I kind of miss the extra length a little bit. Hair cut regret, it always creeps in at some point. I might give the curls a go on my shorter locks though. It could look even better. Or, it could look more like a birds nest. Place your bets now!

  1. This is a super perfect take on daytime sequins - so summery. Years ago I had a grey marl tee with a sequinned bird of paradise that really helped me feel sparkly but also felt quite "day-time"

    Oh and they do look like broccoli to me but I LOVE broccoli so that is okay!
