Daytime Sparkle - Sequin Dress, Denim Jacket and Booties

SEQUIN DRESS - MM Couture
DENIM JACKET - Gap
BOOTIES - Charlotte Russe
PINK CUFF - Made by my mom
PINK TURQUOISE NECKLACE - Jaclyn1423
Sequin detail on my dress
Since Pigtails now goes to Moms Day Out, today I actually had some alone time.  Okay, not really alone, but I didn't have to drag the kids around with me.  And I got to do something I rarely have the opportunity to do... get a haircut!  Afterwards I made a quick stop by the mall and then went off to pick up the girls.  I will say seeing their little faces after a morning away is always so nice.  They light up when I walk in and run to give me a hug.  It's so sweet!

Today I'm doing "Sparkle for Day," another Summer Trends Challenge from the lovely ladies at Megan Mae Daily and Casual Chic Kiki.  I haven't worn this sequin dress in forever but I do kinda love it because despite it's bling it's actually pretty casual.  I decided to dress it down with a denim jacket and some booties.  For color I went with pink, and the gorgeous necklace Jaclyn sent me from her etsy shop, Jaclyn1423 (don't forget you can get a 15% off discount with code 14spinningthreads23!).

Anyway, tomorrow is our big trip.  We had a bunch of drama with the airline (basically our assigned seat mysteriously went to other people).  So I'm a tad stressed since we're traveling with the girls.  But I know it'll workout somehow and I'll get through it...I hope.  I definitely needed a little sparkle in my life today, not only from my dress but from those cute little faces that come running to me when I pick them up!

sparkles are so much fun! i'm actually heading to the chemist today (my 2nd day off work due to illness) to look for some dark glitter New Years-ish nail polish, for the heck of it

Courtney Erin said...

I love the whole sequins for day look! I have a ton of sequin tops that I wear during the day but the only dress I have is black and very evening wear so it's awesome that you have one that works well for casual wear!

You look GORGEOUS! I love that dress on you and how you dressed it down with the jacket. What an awesome look!

That's weird with the assigned seats. Airlines make me angry. I know everything will be fine for you, just don't stress about it. :)

Come take a look inside A Working Mom's Closet

Sparkles........Did somebody say sparkles? Isn't somebody in your family named Sparkles?
You are so silly and I love the names.
But you look great in this sparkly dress. I certainly hope "someone" took you out for dinner!

That sounds like a great program. I need a program like that.
Where are you traveling to? I hope it all goes smoothly. It is never easy traveling with kids. I have done some psycho long flights with them at all ages.

I like the booties and sparkles. And yay for Gap denim jackets - they just go with everything don't they?

I hope you end up having a good trip! You and your bouncy hair. Seriously - I noticed it even before you said you got a haircut.
