I’ll be the first to admit that I’m kind of boring. I don’t add sugar to my tea, I’d rather be perusing through blogs than hittin’ up da clubz, and I definitely don’t wear sequined vests to the supermarket. But when I saw this photo of Jessica Szohr, decked out in denim AND sequins, on Garance’s blog…

…I knew that I needed to add some pizzazz (in the form of sequins) into my life STAT. I love the way that Jessica Szohr (whom, on an unrelated note, is the most boring character on Gossip Girl…jeez Vanessa, get a life!) jazzes up a simple, button down denim shirt by pairing it with a fun, sparkly sequin skirt. The opposing textures mesh perfectly together, making it just as wearable during the daytime as at night. I love a versatile combo! It’s retro yet modern, classy yet jazzy. Business in the front, party in the back.
Fact: I do not own a single sequined item. But that’s going to change! I’m quite partial to this Young Fabulous & Broke Bijou Miniskirt, pictured above with a Madewell campfire cargo shirt. And then, who knows, maybe I’ll start adding sugar to my tea.
