Now that some cherry blossoms are out and it looks like we might’ve turned the page on winter here in London (perhaps a tad optimistic), it is time for my favourite wardrobe staple, the silver sequin skirt to sparkle in the sunshine, instead of hiding beneath a winter coat. I actually read in a magazine a few weeks ago listed under fashion don’ts: ‘sequins after the holidays’. Wha? Sure, you should only wear your reindeer sweaters (if you must) in December, but sequins?! What sort of bitter, self-loathing, style-free person packs away their sequins with the holiday decorations? Not me. Instead, I’m skipping out into the sunshine, wearing a sequin-sloganed sweatshirt (because what goes better with sequins than MORE sequins, amiright?) with a sequin skirt, and frankly, I couldn’t feel better. If post-Christmas sequins are wrong, I don’t ever want to be right. That is the liberating part about style after 40; I don’t care what the magazines say to wear or not wear. I will wear whatever my little sequin encrusted heart desires. And right now, it is this outfit. It has all of my favourite elements: wearable and walkable Rockstud kitten heels, a sweatshirt, my beloved skirt, and one of my studded cuff bracelets (which I almost feel naked without).
I know lots of you are still buried under a foot of snow, but what are you looking forward to wearing when it melts away and the crocuses start shoving their bright little faces up out of the ground?
