Sequins and Denim + Mood Lifting Tip

Hello, lovelies! What is going on? I hope everything is fine! In today’s post, I wanted to incorporate two of my favorite styles on a single outfit. You might wonder which are those. Sequins and denim of course! As you might have noticed, this season’s spring and summer trends are all about the ’80s, so an oversized denim jacket and a sequined top (this top reminds me of disco times :P) are exactly what I needed!

Don’t you have some days that your mood is not at its best, so you need to do something in order to stop staring at the ceiling above your bed? Well, today was that kind of day for me, so I needed something to change this bad mood. What is more uplifting for a girl than to wear her pretty clothes and some makeup and go out for a walk? At least this is what works for me almost every single time! (if you have never tried it I really can’t recommend it enough). Plus, taking some photos is one of the best confidence-boosting activities you could indulge in, so that’s what I did. It is even better to get a friend to tag along, but if no one is available, don’t hesitate to go about it by yourself. You will realize that some alone time is also very therapeutic from time to time.

So below you will find photos and details of the mood-lifting sequins and denim outfit that I wore and made my day (Am I weird for giving such a name to an outfit? Yes, definitely!)

Sequins and Denim Outfit

It was a very cloudy and somewhat chilly day, so I chose to wear a total white outfit with long pants and an oversized denim jacket. For a pop of color, I added a color block tote. I also wanted to give a bit of edginess to this look, so I went for a top with clear sequins, as well as a pair of spiked loafers (which I had totally forgotten that I own 😛 ). Although this outfit is very simple and basic, I find it stylish and appropriate for many occasions. What is your opinion? At the end of the post, you can find all the details in case you want to recreate it 😉

The clear sequins on the top make it appropriate for almost any occasion.

P.S. This is a “bonus” photo of mine doing stupid things in front of the camera, because, I have to admit, I felt a bit uncomfortable shooting in a place with people around staring :P. I guess it takes time to get used to it, right?

    Love the nail polish! Great extra detail. Denim jackets are back on trend apparently (I think I still have mine from the 1990s somewhere…)

      Yes, they are! I wish my mom had one to give me! Don’t hesitate to wear yours again!

    Great styling and contrast. Soothing in summer without the jacket, but with a jacket, it becomes a good outfit for many informal occasions.

    Kate what a fun article! I loved the lifestyle to tip get out of the house dressed up and do something fun! I can definitely see that boosting my mood! I loved the clear sequin top, I haven’t seen many clear sequin things, so I loved seeing what you paired it with. Now I think I need to do some shopping for one!
    What do you think about the oversized denim on all body types though? I’m plus sized, so to find an oversized jacket I’d probably have to look in men’s and I’m not sure it would be flattering. Do you think a fitted jean jacket would still look trendy?
    Also, I love your spiked loafers, very cute.

      Hello my dear Rachel!
      Well, i don’t think it would be bad on you, but try it and see for yourself. One thing i’ve learned is to never reject clothes before i try them on. But if you still don’t feel like wearing an oversized jacket, a fitted one would also be perfect and stylish! Thank you for stopping by <3
