OOTD-I've Got Confetti, Whose Coming to the Party?






I totally blanked on the fact that Mardi Gras was here until I was watching the news this morning, but the outfit I planned was ready for the party anyway. I saw this sequin sweater online and instantly fell in love. I hemmed and hawed over whether this was worth buying, should I wait for a sale, how practical are sequins? I was trying to convince myself I didn't need it, but a recent sale on sweaters had me still wanting to make it mine. Have you ever thought about something, tried to convince yourself not to get it, but just couldn't get it out of your mind?

There were no regrets on my part. My sweater brought a little party to work and some co-workers supplied jambalaya and king cake. Our own little celebration that's probably not as grand as the real deal, but still fun all the same.

Daily Outfit:
Sequin striped sweater- J Crew (available here)
Purple cords- Forever 21
Tan flats- Zara (old)
Handbag- Louis Vuitton Speedy

  1. I've definitely had that experience of not buying something and then thinking about it later. Usually there's never another opportunity to buy it. The sweater is very cute on you!

  3. Very good purchase. I have been thinking about getting this sweater but I have plenty of sequins and stripes in my closet right now. Maybe I will wait for another sale.

  4. Uh, yes. I think about clothing WAY too often and many times can't stop thinking about it. Obsessed? Probably.

  9. Thanks Jess!!! I'm glad you got an outfit idea. It's a great sweater (I'm actually wearing it today with a simple gray skirt) and I think it can be paired with so many things.
