Happy Monday to you all! Who says you must give up your sparkly weekend dreams at the start of a new work week? Pas moi, mes amis! If anything, why not treat yourself and have dessert first this time. Of course if you want ACTUAL dessert you’ll have grab that yourself, but at least I’m here to help you with the metaphorical kind. A touch of sequins never hurt anyone and there’ll be plenty of time to get serious later.
Mr.T’s birthday was earlier this month so a bit of celebrating was required. With my amazing cousin in town the 3 of us headed to Twenty Five Lusk for dinner. Of course HE thought it was to be a quiet night after tying one on the previous night with coworkers. Little did he know I’d arranged for friends to surprise him and meet us for drinks. After arriving to find a friend in line I thought he may have figured me out. Luckily, he was blissfully oblivious and happily surprised by a lot of friends.
So a girl wants to look cute for her guys bday… And this sequin skirt was calling my name. Do you remember seeing it here? I wanted to balance the light color of the skirt with something dark but still keep it sexy. This sweater provides the kind of unexpected sexy details I love and was the first piece of clothing I bought after moving here. Azalea is a wonderful boutique in San Francisco but you can shop them online if you don’t live in the city. Their selection is stellar!
Booties seemed like the obvious choice to keep my toes warm and the tough, but sexy look going. An animal print bag only adds to that feel but then I veered back towards femininity with a single, delicate necklace. This gorgeous necklace c/o by boe is a such a beauty, as are all her pieces. Many have unusual shapes or details which drawn me in. Do you like unusual jewelry too? The earrings I wore are vintage and a few other baubles finished off my look. I’m always drawn towards the unexpectedly sexy or unusual details like this sweater. What would you wear with this skirt to keep someone guessing. Will you be searching for your own Out Back soon?
