Sequins have been long associated with parties and occasions. It’s still rare to see anyone wearing a metallic pleated skirt or a shiny rose gold blouse during the daytime. Those occurrences gives me a stir to try the challenge and test the waters. Few months ago, I bought this really simple slip dress and wore it once in the whole summer. The beauty of this dress is that it could be put together with any statement piece to dress it down. When I saw the metallic blouse, I knew I wanted it. But, to make it a daywear was a bit of challenge for me. (Products are linked at the end of the post)
“ Metallics can be worn as a daywear by dressing down with anything simple like cotton or silk“
I knew that I did not want it with denim or a skirt because it would either be too casual or too dressy. The cotton makes a perfect way to dress anything down because of its simplicity. Now, it was not too cold which is why it let me experiment with a cotton slip dress. But, just to be sure I had my lace socks and tough boots. Combat boots are my favorite when it comes to slip dress because it sort of gives an edge to the outfit. Not that, I have anything against the romantics, but I prefer more edgy than dainty.

To add a vintage touch, I paired the medallion necklace from baublebar. I cannot tell you how much I am NOT a fan of jewelry. I am very very selective of it, which is why when I found this, I was filled with joy. It was perfect to add a classy touch.
