EVERYDAY SPARKLE

If you know me, then you probably aren’t surprised to see me in these pants. Given my obsession with all things shiny and sparkly, these pants were a no brainer when I saw them on the mannequin at Nordstrom. At first, sequin pants (especially gold ones) might seem impractical, but they are surprisingly versatile. For a night out, pair them with a blouse, blazer, and pumps and I guarantee you’ll get compliments on this update on a classic look. For the daytime, dress the sequins down with everyday basics like a white t-shirt or slouchy sweater. I chose a chambray shirt for my own look, which has the same effect. I love mixing glitzy and practical pieces together. It helps makes a normal day a little more fun :-).

Confession: These pants are actually sold as leggings *gasp*, but I’m maintaining my position that they are indeed pants. Here’s my reasoning: 1) they are lined; 2) the stretch is minimal (with the waistband having no stretch at all); and 3) they have a side zipper, without which you could not put them on. Give them a try, but hurry because they are going fast!
