Sequin Mondays...

I first heard about #sequinmonday from the lovely Susie and it was definitely the inspiration behind this outfit. For many people, Monday is the signifier of a new week, about about as far from sparkly as you could get but for me, Monday was my day off before I started my latest project... I am now working as a marketing intern for The Roses Theatre and I couldn't be more excited! These photos celebrate the last of my Mondays off and (hopefully) the start of a shiny future... 

Top: Principles from Debenhams, jeans: Topshop, cardigan: stolen from my mum,  necklace: Primark , sparkly brogues: Limited Collection at Marks & Spencer. 
When it comes to styling up jeans, there is one name that always pops into my head. Jen writes over at 'A Little Bird Told Me' and always looks absolutely impeccable in her denim based outfits. In fact, I always think of these as my Jen jeans [I'm not creepy I promise] and look to her blog for some sartorial inspiration when I wear them...


I am a little disappointed with how these photos came out if I'm honest, I really loved this outfit with it's pop of colour but it looks rather lacklustre in these photos :( 


I bought this necklace after spying MJ in a similar one.. I think it is clear to see that I was heavily inspired by other bloggers with this outfit...


 A subtle sparkle to lift a neutral cardigan...


... and some sparkly brogues made for an outfit which I felt was worthy of #sequinmonday! 

How do you lift your spirits? Which bloggers inspire you?

I have so many photos I've taken that I never use because they are pants. I just don't have a clue when it comes to photography.
I wish I could wear a big necklace liken that. I'm allergic to most jewellery so I;m limited to brooches and necklaces on ribbon.
I'm really inspired by Sally from Louder then Silence and I would love to have a more rock and roll edge like Sara Luxe but I'm quite girly xx

Sequin Monday is an amazing idea! We all need more sequins in our life, especially to brighten up Monday mornings.

Love this outfit Maria - I hadn't heard of #sequinmonday but I'm a regular participant anyway! Sequins are a great way to cheer up the start of the week.

Thank you for your lovely words about my denim styling skills - I do love my jeans! Love those you have on - are they the Kristens? I have the black and the blue ones, they're SUCH a good fit! :) x
