As I said during the EBEW Sequins and Shine Challenge, I have a hard time breaking out the shine in casual situations. Sequins and shine just read “fancy” to me and I like that about them. But, today, I think maybe I’ve mastered casual shine:
I really, really like today’s outfit. Yes, in part because it involves leggings and a tunic, for which I am a sucker. But, I also love it because it exudes a bit of shimmery goodness that falls well within my Daytime Shine Comfort Level. The silvery-gray blouse (Halogen via Nordstrom) worn over the black tunic (Old Navy) has a subtle shine. And it picks up the similarly-hued shimmer from my snakings (snake-leggings via Target). The scarf (BCBG) has a less subtle shine but still doesn’t make me feel as if I should be tap dancing in a top hat* so I’m comfortable with it. I finished the look with black riding boots (Vince Camuto “Fantastic” via Nordstrom), earrings and a bracelet
And, there you have it; casual shine as imagined by a giant.
Happy Thursday, All!
*Point of fact: if I could tap dance, I would do it all the time, whether I was wearing sequins and a top hat or not.
