OOTD – Birthday Outfit With Sequins And An Oversize Shirt

You know how sometimes you just find an outfit which individually isn’t anything special but you absolutely fall head over heels for it?! Well, this outfit does exactly that for me. At the beginning of January, I placed an order with Simply Be, mainly because there was a stunning black sequin dress that I wanted but alas despite ordering 2 different sizes it just wasn’t for me. But while I was there I did choose a few more items because who can ever place an online order and only buy what they initially went on for?! I know I can’t.

I went through the sale section and saw this oversized khaki embroidered shirt, now usually for me shirts don’t do up around the bust area so I had planned to wear this more as a light jacket as I loved the length. Khaki isn’t a colour I usually wear so I thought I’d throw myself out of my comfort zone but it’s not too bright or garish, plus it goes with black which is what most of the clothing I own is. I was pleasantly surprised when the shirt arrived to see that it fit and I could actually do up all the buttons without feeling like I was going to flash someone *hoorah*

Next up I spotted these star and moon sequin jeans and fell in love. I have to admit I wasn’t sure if they looked a bit tacky on the website but I thought what the heck, I knew I’d be returning at least one item anyway so if they were rubbish I could always send them back. From the moment I opened them from the packaging though I knew I couldn’t part with them. They’re actually the first pair of slim jeans I’ve ever owned as I’ve always just stuck to skinny jeans but I found them really flattering and it’s always nice to be able to put the bottom of your jeans over your boots as opposed to skinny’s only allowing them to go inside.

The jeans are pretty much a spot on fit for me and I don’t think there’s anything I’d change about them and the sequin detailing I am obsessed with. I love stars and moon/ sun symbols anyway but the sequins are well secured so I’m not worried about them coming off when I’m wearing them/ in the wash and they just jazz up a simple outfit.

    Love the Embroidered Jacket I think the rose gives it a real feminine touch with a touch of class.

    Oh this is gorgeous! I love that jacket, embroidery is always so pretty and against the leather it’s such a great contrast!

    I adore your jeans, they are fab. I love jeans with a bit more to them, so would definitely go for these myself. Your whole outfit is lovely, very you. And you’ll get much more wear from them then the black sequin dress, no matter how fab it may have looked on the picture.

    Khaki looks great before I read the post I saw the shirt and thought that goes really well with her colouring I am sure I would look like a goon. It is funny isn’t our our perception of self and others view of us can be so different. Anyway rocking the look

    I love your Birthday outfit, you look amazing! The embroidered jacket is my favourite, the rose is so pretty. I haven’t tried any slim fit jeans, it can be annoying though always having to tuck my skinny jeans in my boots so I’ll have to try them out for myself.

    You look stunning, I love those jeans. Its great the sequins are securely on, I always worry about washing things with sequins on x

    I love the embroidery on your jacket! I’m very much an oversized shirt girl – in fact, its pretty much all I wear through the work week!

    This is such a great casual outfit and you’ve styled it so well. I love the embroidered jacket! It works so well with your make up and colouring.

  17. February 26, 2018 / 7:30 pm

    I’m not an accessories lady so I wear dresses or skirts that make a statement and speak for themselves.

  18. February 26, 2018 / 7:44 pm

    What a lovely outfit, you have styled it so well together. The patterns on the trousers and jacket are fab x

    I love that shirt! I get the gaping problem too-and I can recommend double sided sticky tape to stop that happening.
