I like a little sparkle in my life

So I have already informed you of my glitter obsession on Pinterest. And when I say glitter, I basically mean all things that glitter (as in the verb) because that includes sequins, metallic, etc. If it sparkles, I love it.

To me, glitter is the epitome of girliness. And not only that, but I think glitter has a certain classy quality (hence the reason you always seem to find it on evening gowns). And I truly believe that you can dress it up, or dress it down.

Today, I dressed it down. The sequin bow on my tank and the glittery details on my nails were my dose of glitter for this outfit. I paired it with jeans and put a cardigan over the tank so that it instantly became work appropriate for dress down Fridays. However, I have a black sequin skirt and some silver heels with rhinestones that I could have paired with this tank and it would have turned the outfit in a completely different direction for a night out on the town. See? Dress it up or dress it down.

You should definitely take a peek at Katie's sparkly cardigan, today. Um, and don't forget her shoes - they don't sparkle but your eyes will when you see them. They're gorgeous.

But after all that rambling, I need your girl's opinions. I paired this mustard yellow cardigan with the red shoes you see here, but before that I tried the cardi with the turquoise shoes from this post. I had to ask husband for his opinion because there are no other girls in the house (the one reason I kind of look forward to the day I have a teenage daughter -- which is years away). He said the turquoise didn't really go with the mustard yellow. But in my opinion, it kind of did. So I want to know your opinions, what do you think? Are turquoise and mustard yellow compatible in the same outfit?
