Blog Series - Curves around the World - Curvy Plus size Outfits - WEEK #19 SEQUINS

plus size / curvy girl outfit of the night / day featuring green sequins and red lipstick
This week's theme isn't one I wear a lot. As pretty, feminine and eye catching as they are, sequins just don't feature much in my wardrobe. I'm not really sure why as done in the right way, I really like them. I have a few embellished tops with beads etc but not with sequins and a girl has to stick to the rules of the blog series and not cheat! I found I have 5 or so pieces with sequins, and decided to show you my favourite of the bunch and also one I happened to pack for my holiday. It also has the most sequins of all the items-bonus!

Cardigan- New Look, Top- Dorothy Perkins, Linen Trousers- M&S, Shoes-Birkenstock

This photo is from my recent holiday. I knew this theme was coming up so I did some photos 'on location'! I seem to most wear this top when on holiday. (The top photo is me in Toronto,Canada). I also wore it quite a bit when I lived abroad (see the photos below). I think the bright colour, and shimmer of the sequins screams holiday and sun. It's very loose fitting so easy to wear and comfortable. I usually wear it with jeans but it was way too hot for jeans in Cyprus. I like the outfit with the linen trousers. I am a big fan of simple, comfortable outfits. Obviously whole outfit is white, which showcases the top.

The thing I love most about the top is the colour of the top and the sequins. They really compliment each other. This shade of green is my absolute favourite and it really makes the top stand out. I always seem to get a lot of compliments on this top. It's very simple yet really stands out and is a bit different. 

Here are a few photos of me whilst I lived abroad. As you can see, I usually wore it going out with my friends a lot. Drinking water, obviously!

I wanted to quickly show you a slightly different item with sequins-a hat. I bought this on a speedy shopping trip last year. I was heading to lovely Paris and couldn't find a hat to keep me warm whilst seeing all the sights. (Off topic but who else adores Paris? I've been so many times but Paris never gets old and has such a lovely charm about it!) Annoyingly this picture I found from cruising the River Seine doesn't show the detail that well, but I love it anyway. It's a simple black hat with a sequin bow on the side. I'll be featuring this hat again so look out for future Winter posts to see more of it with more photos!

  3. The linen pants look so comfortable, I wish it was hot enough here to wear them now, and I have a feeling I'm not alone in that ;)

    Not a super sequin fan, but I'm trying to make it work. Decided to dive in head first, though I'm still feeling like sequins are for going out to parties and clubs.

  5. That is a very cute top and the colors really compliment each other well. I used to have a similar top that I wore a lot when I used to go out with friends but I unfortunately grew to big for it so I had to donate it. But yeah the hat is really cute, I love the detailing.
