Sequin Shoulders



Wasn't going to take outfit photos today, because I'm a lazy butt, but then I realized I don't think I've done any outfits for the blog with this awesome sweater. And I had to take pictures of the sequin-shoulder sweater!





I'm wearing: H&M sweater, F21 skirt, Target flats and tights.


Back to my go-to outfit! Skirt, flats, sweater. Sometimes I go crazy and wear boots instead of flats. But yeah, nothing too exciting, but that suits me just fine. As long as I have sequined shoulders.

So Halloween! What are you guys planning on doing for the holiday? Dressing up? I plan to have a Super Fun Halloween, because for the past several Halloweens I've had, they all sucked and were totally disappointing. This year will be different! I'm going to finally give up on trying to make my own unique and obscure costumes, and just buy something at the store. Every time I make a costume it looks awful and nobody can tell what it is. So no more! I will be recognizable, by jove, and I'm going to have fun. I am resolved. So what are you kids being for Halloween? I'm super curious!

I have that sweater in gray! I love how you paired yours with that cute plaid skirt :)

I'm making my own costume this year and POSSIBLY going trick or treating with the boy, despite being eighteen. oh well!

Love the sequins!

I'll be in New York on Halloween, so I don't think I'll get to wear a costume. I'll carry some cat ears around with me or something just in case, ha! The only time I ever made a really good costume was when I dressed up at Ms.Lovett from Sweeney Todd. No one knew who I was, but I think it looked AWESOME.

I. LOVE. YOUR. SWEATER.
one of the things i miss MOST about europe is h&m

also cream suits you super well. WEAR MORE OF IT OK

Ok first off, best sweater ever maybe? I think so.

Secondly. I totally know the whole work-on-costume-grueling-hours-night-and-day-and-then-have-no-one-recognize-you feeling. For example, I worked very hard on my Tangled Up In Blue costume. It took lots of blue cellophane and lots of tape and lots of time. Everyone thought I was something from Star Trek, and that was AFTER I told them I was a song. This year I think I will be Wendy from Peter Pan and I will make my sister be Peter because she'd be a perfect Peter. If they don't recognize Wendy, I'll punch 'em.

Just kidding.

I'm in love with this post. With the cute preppy skirt, and the AWESOME sweater that looks like those things at J Crew they have the nerve to charge like, 200 bucks for. And because it's adorable and sparkly. And your hair is so cute!! Gah. I know it always looks like that, but I think it looks especially good here.

Heather said...

This. Sweater. Is. Perfect.

I definitely need to venture out to H&M very very soon! They always have such amazing stuff!

I can't wait to see what you're going to be for Halloween. I haven't even thought about it yet!

Yep, best sweater ever.

For Halloween, I still don't know. I'll never be able to top my David Bowie circa Aladdin Sane costume from years ago, so I'll probably just be something lame. But fun will definitely be had. :)

Joy said...

Love the sweater! I love anything sparkly and shiny!

My daughter is going as an evil Jester and my son is wearing a skull mask and a sombrero. Something about day of the dead. I have no idea. I, however, am going as a vampire!

✿ren said...

Whoaaaaa!!!! That sweater looks ultra fab! I tend to shun from sequins because they're tedious to wash (I'm a throw-everything-into-the-washing-machine kind of girl), but they always look so good, and this is no exception. *__*

I don't celebrate Halloween, so I'd probably be at home watching television specials. But I'm looking forward to seeing your costume! :D

Louise said...

I'm seeing a lot of sequins today... I am so inspired! You look so cute and chic.

Justice Pirate said...

This is a beautiful outfit. I laughed and smiled so much with your Star Wars comment. . .as I'm wearing an R2-D2 shirt now. haha. Yesterday my husband sent me a link of a coat that he thought I'd like because it reminded him of Hoth-wear. ;)

Lulu and the Locket said...

Emily, Ruby Slipper Traveller said...

Aww, you look adorable! I really love all of the last few posts here (I've just been playing catch-up). And I'm just adding you to bloglovin so you don't get away from me again. Love that green dress a few posts down, and love these sequined shoulders!

I actually wanted to see if you'd be interested in starting a clothing swap similar to the Delightful Dozen. I'm talking with a few other bloggers at the moment, and I'd love it if you could be a part of it! Email me :)

Hahaha, i can totally relate to the obscure homemade halloween costumes. I was Karen O from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and everyone just thought I was a homeless woman. This year I'm being a man with a mustache and bowler hat and bowtie, yeah, though I have failed several times with the home made halloween costumes I am not giving up. By the way I love the sweater!

Hey, me again, just to say that I agree about the Sherlock Holmes movie! I was uber skeptical beforehand but I have to say it was really funny and good! Not as good as the series though. ; )

Heather said...

I'm sending you the link to that sweater, because I'm a dork and it's too long for twitter! Bah! But this is the sweater (I have it in cream and green!)

Sweater.
