How to Wear Sequins in Summer

Well we had another blast of summer heat this past weekend in Vancouver, and man was that every great to have after the showers and thunderstorms the week previous. Time to hit the beach! Even for this pale, pale gal (don't worry, sunscreen is always in my bag!).

I've been dying to wear this maxi sequin skirt that I bought on sale at Maccs a while back. I actually was lusting after it when it was originally selling for $119, and clamoured to get my hands on it when it finally went on sale for a staggering $19!! (PS. it's still on sale right now if you want this gorgeous skirt too).

I wanted to challenge myself to style it in a casual way though, contrary to what you would usually think of when styling a full length sequin skirt. So lo and behold, my sequin "mermaid" outfit! By wearing sandals rather than heels, and half-tucking a slouched casual shirt, this skirt went from night-out-only attire, to a glam yet casual day ensemble. The key thing too, is not caring what anyone else thinks. There are no real rules and barriers in fashion: only the ones we create in our heads. Sequins at the beach?? Why not!
