Unexpected Look

Hello Sweetsies,
I am not usually a Saturday poster, but I am keeping up with the
21 Day Challenge so bonus post this week.
Our challenge today was to wear an item in an unexpected way.
At first I thought, oh man, this is gonna be tough in the summer.  Clothes just don't lend themselves to that in this season.
But, then one look in my closet and I knew exactly what I was going to do!
I threw my lovely sequin tank over my cute little chambray drop waist dress. 
a.) usually one doesn't wear a tank over a dress
b.) most people don't wear sequins on a daily basis
c.) people usually don't mix sequins and chambray
d.) this look is just plain fun!!
I did have a hard time with the shoes and accessories because I couldn't decide which way I wanted this look to go. 
 I finally decided an easy, breezy, summertime look was the best option.
Do you have a clothing item that you like to wear in an unexpected way?
I would love to hear about it.

Hope ya'll have a great weekend!!

I really like wearing tanks over T-shirts.  I don't do it very often just because I don't think about it, but I think it is such a fun, unexpected (as you said) look.  It's casual but still chic.  I love the sequin tank that you used!

I like it.  Experimenting is the best way to discover new outfits.

Great idea!  I have a black BCBG sequin tank that I wear over a crisp white shirt.  Love that chambray dress!

Wow I bet that looks sharp
Might try that with my dark gray sequin tank!
Thx for the suggestion!

What a cute look and a great idea!  Who says you have to wear a sequins tank alone or under a blazer?  Add it over a dress!  I love alternative ways to wear things!  Saw you over at the Mingle Monday at BonBon Rose girls and thought I'd say hi!
