Well, readers, it’s the time again. Sunday night means returning to work tomorrow. As you know, I don’t normally post my weekend clothes, as this blog is dedicated mostly to budget friendly work attire. However, I actually work weekends and because I work in a private office on the weekends, I tend to wear much more casual attire than I do the rest of the week. I have not, however, ever worn a sweatshirt to my weekend work…until this weekend.
Why start now, you ask? Well, readers, one simple answer: sequins.
While I was having a sequin party at work, why not add printed jeans?
I know, it’s almost like I was having too much fun between the sequined sweatshirt and printed jeans, right? Well, I was workin’ for (and during) the weekend!
Sequined sweatshirt: Old Navy ($15 marked down from $20)
Jeans: Old Navy ($30)
Shoes: Minnetonka at Old Navy ($17 marked down from $45)
Fashion Huntress tips:
1) I don’t wander into Old Navy too frequently, but they have great staples there. I shied away from their pants in the past because they didn’t seem to fit well. However, I decided that it’s one of those stores that have sizes that are not really representative of sizes in most other stores. If you’re looking for a trendy pair of pants that may go out of style quickly, then definitely consider going somewhere like Old Navy or H&M. But, if you’re at Old Navy, throw all sense of sizing out the window! Once I did, I found a pair that fit perfectly. Also, they have really great sales online. These pants, along with a ton of other printed pants, are on sale now. http://oldnavy.gap.com/
2) Somehow, sequins seem to make sweatshirts that much more “appropriate” for public usage. I’ve always embraced wearing sweatshirts around on the weekends, but sequins do make them look, I’ll say it, even a bit classy. There are a ton of places to find these sweatshirts lately; I’ve seen them in most chain stores. And, of all the DIY fashion there is, bedazzling a sweatshirt is one of those projects that you actually could easily complete. Sequins? Hot glue gun? Easy peasy.
Readers, what do you think? Are sequined sweatshirts an upgrade for weekend wear? Are you embracing this trend?
Happy Monday, readers! Hope everyone has a good start to the week!
