how to wear a sequin skirt

Top – SM Woman
Skirt – (Gifted )
Shoes – Zara
Purse – Mum’s Closet

Can you tell that I was struggling to come up with a title for this post? Blehh who says blogging is easy?!
So my main plan with this outfit was to show you another way to wear your button down top – backwards (the front in the back) with an extra twist – leaving the buttons opened, but somehow the sequin skirt managed to come off as too fab so now I guess it’s everything I’m showing off. Haha
I wore this outfit to church some Sundays back but if course with the buttons closed. The little bib collar made it come out nicer.
Hence, you can switch this from
An official look – buttons closed
to
Night time/dinner look – buttons opened.
With my accessories I went very minimal because the sequins I feel were shouty enough (can u see my current favorite bangle tho, I rocked it in my previous outfit post…. it’s just very chic & i must warn you, it’ll be everywhere on the blog). The sequin purse in a darker shade of blue.
I’ll leave you to be the judge. But before then can y’all remember this location that I used for this outfit post? It looks like a white Christmas in the day time!

    The pictures are amazing and the location is perfect. Gosh beautiful. Girl you are so pretty, and that skirt just came to steal the show from the shirt. Lovely outfit, would definitely try wearing my shirts backwards.

    Breathtaking. Everything. I’m still searching for the perfect sequin piece to add to my wardrobe. Till then, I’ll work with the button down shirt worn backwards with open buttons because I love a dramatic back. Honestly though, the location is amazing, so beautiful.

    I love it!!!! Didn’t even know that top was backwards till I read your post. Skirt is fab and the sequins are glorious! Also loving the pairing of light blue on darker blue, definitely something I want to try.

    I am always afraid of the sequin skirt and wow, you made me want to have one.
    You styled it very well.
