Olympic Gold

When my friend M suggested that I do an olympic-themed post, I knew I had the perfect outfit.  I've had this red/white/blue peplum top hanging in my closet for awhile and have been wanting to pair it with this gold sequin skirt.  I thought that if I wore it out now, people would wonder why I didn't wear it on the 4th of July, but my holiday was way too casual for this outfit.  Enter M's idea, and my ensemble took on a new theme: Olympic Gold.  I was quite busy this weekend and didn't get a lot of time to watch any of the olympics but I did record a lot of the games and really can't wait to catch up on the gymnastics events.  Did you guys watch any of the olympics this weekend?  What are your favorite games to watch?

  6. I just love this style of yours ! This vintage , somewhere in the 30s style looks great on you. I admire your new hairstyle too, with the red bow. This feminine and ladylike look really suits you. Love your bag too. You know what, talking about Olympic gold, today, my country won the first medal, a bronze { no gold yet } and I am happy.
    have a nice day !

  48. Gold. Sequined. OLYMPICS. OMG, I'm so obsessed/excited/elated with the Olympics, and your outfit is perfect! I can't get over the fact that your skirt is sequined and gold. Love it! Thus far, the women's beach volleyball (Misty May, Kerri Walsh), gymnastics (men and women), swimming, and synchronized diving are my favorites.
