Casual Friday: Sequin Date Night

Date night is probably my favorite night of the week. My main squeeze is out of town for work on most weeks, and school work keeps me super busy, so the weekends are often reserved for "us" time. We could be doing absolutely nothing and I would be happy just to be in the same place as him. That being said, it is also fun to get all gussied up for a night out!

I am a huge fan of sequins! While I often follow the "less-is-more" rule with things that are super sparkly, this top definitely has me breaking my own mold (haha)! This top is so fabulous, and I love the mix of blue, orange and pink sequins...I can easily see this piece being layered for fall. I paired such a sparkly top with super dark jeans (side note: just discovered that Old Navy makes extended lengths, and their jeans are about $30 a pair!! SCORE!), wedges and one of my favorite necklaces from Luxe Craving.

Shirt: J.Crew
Jeans: Old Navy
Wedges: Target
Necklace: Luxe Craving
Bracelet: gift
Watch: eBay
Clutch: c/o Shop Dandy
Sunnies: Boden
Nails: Koala Berry by OPI

Also in the spotlight this week is my new Color Dipped Canvas Clutch from Shop Dandy. I won it in an Instagram giveaway, and let me tell you, it is the most amazing piece! The clutch perfectly houses my wallet, gum, blotting sheets, keys, phone and chapstick, and IT IS MONOGRAMMED. Woot! I chose gray so that it would go with pretty much everything, but the clutch comes in a variety of color combos and is only $25! Thanks for reading, and have a great weekend!

Don't forget to enter the Wild Butterfly Boutique giveaway!



  1. Love that top! I have the same shirt! Love how you styled it! The necklace goes perfect with it!
    Have a great weekend!

  2. How do you think the ON long jeans fit? I'm 6'2 and pretty much the same build as you except a bit lacking in the butt region (lol) so usually they get kinda baggy. I haven't tried these yet but would love to have a cheaper option than like JCrew, Gap and Banana Republic. Thanks :)

    1. Hey Ashley! I LOVE the way the ON jeans fit - I had tried J.Crew and Gap and found both to be a little saggy in the bum/thighs. I just recently tried a pair of ON ones on and have even started selling some of my 7FAM on eBay because I like my more budget-friendly digs better! I am just shy of 6', and order the "tall" length (a step up from Long), and I actually have some extra to cuff or scrunch depending on the shoes I'm wearing! I hope this helps! Please don't hesitate to email me if you have any other questions! Thanks for reading! xoxo, Steph

    2. PS. These are the Diva fit...I think they are the slimmest that they offer besides the Rockstar, but those are more of a jegging on me personally :-/ haha

  3. LOVE the necklace/top combo girly! And that clutch is too cute. Hope you're hanging in there. I just finished with my big 3 month end of rotation exams for surgery and peds and passed! yay. So much stress... haha! I know you understand. I'm headed to internal now, but I'll be driving a lot. I absolutely LOVED the ER, although the schedule was insane. Keep in touch friend! We need to talk! haha!
