Sequins in February? Isn’t that really a holiday thing? Well…as far as I see it, there are no rules governing when we can and cannot wear sequins but the majority of us do tend to associate the glitz and glam of sequins with the holiday season. But wait…there’s more…I have a confession!!! On Christmas Day while in Florida I went to dinner with my in-laws and wore this outfit and well—I wore this outfit about a week ago to dinner with my sister here in Jamaica. Yup, the same exact outfit twice!
In my opinion, being able to repeat an outfit from head-to-toe really simplifies life. Plus, you realize that there really is no need to wear something new every single time you go out to feel your best. Now I do love to remix my outfits to create a completely different look but if you wore an outfit and you felt great wearing it, then wear the damn thing the same way again, & again! This outfit may have been more fitting when I wore it over the holidays, but I still opted to wear it again because I can and I don’t plan on wearing something once and have it sit in my closet until thy kingdom come!
On Christmas Day when I wore this outfit I just wanted to be ultra comfortable but still equally festive, so I paired my sequin pants with a casual sweatshirt and fun bright pink heels for a look that’s both festive but not too fancy. For my second time around wearing this outfit—well…I really just liked the simplicity and comfort of the outfit so I wore it again.YES, sequins do make for a very festive look but when toned down with a casual top (or sweater in my case) they become more cool and laid back than glitzy. Pretty cool how the same outfit worked for two different occasions huh?
By the way, my sister and I dined at the Mystic India restaurant here in Montego Bay, Jamaica. Impressed is an understatement!!! I have never been a big fan of Indian food but we really wanted to venture out and try something different and I am so happy we did. After my experience at Mystic India it’s quite obvious that my taste buds have fallen in love with spices, chilies (both green and red), creams, pastes and the sweet flavors of a new cuisine. GASP!!!
The FOOOOOOOD!!!! I don’t know where to start because I am after all a newbie to Indian cuisine, but our server was very knowledgeable of the menu and gave us suggestions. She did not disappoint nor did the food! The food just spoke to my soul and that made dining at Mystic India an unparalleled culinary experience.
The interior was just as impressive. Hanging white curtains, covered pillowed seating booths with muted lighting that created a very comfortable ambiance. The traditional Indian decor brought us straight from Jamaica to East India. I’m so excited to go back and I think my taste buds would agree too. I promise to write a more in depth review of this restaurant after my next visit!
