Mixing Casual With Dressy

Happy Monday!
Today's installment of the 21 Challenge is to mix casual with dressy.
As you all know that is right up my alley and something I do all the time.
You knew I would do sequins right!? 
 I love the casual look of the denim boyfriend shorts and the sequin top.
  I got this top last summer at H&M in Seattle. 
 I think I have remixed it every which way possible.
A sequin tank is a must have in my book!
No need for a lot of extra jewelry with this top. 
 Just some earrings and a bracelet.
It is so humid outside this morning. 
 I swear you can see my hair get bigger and frizzier in each frame I took this morning!
What do you think about the shoes with this outfit?
  As I was trying to decide what shoes to wear I glanced at my inspiration board and saw 2 pictures of shorts and oxfords.
  I decided to give it a go.

boyfriend shorts-Loft

I own no sequins.  After seeing your outfit, I think that's a shame.  Wonderful look!

Eek.  I really need to catch up on your blog.  I'm so behind!  I hate being behind.

I don't even know about this 21 challenge you speak of, but I like mixing dressy with casual, too, and I'd totally wear this outfit.

Nice combo.  That top is really special.  A piece like that can make an outfit sing.

I still really adore this top.  It looks amazing no matter what!!  I need to find my own must-have piece like this one.
