Brown Sugar Metallic Top

Brown Sugar Metallic Top – on sale for $39.95

I simply adore this uber glam Metallic Top by Brown Sugar, for whom I’m very proud to be a Brand Ambassador.  Today I’m going to show you how to take a gorgeous glitter ball of a top and style it for breakfast at the beach.  I call it ‘casual glam’.

This glamorous top featured in my New Year’s Eve outfit planning but because it is a little bit OTT, it doesn’t get many outings.

Let’s change that up!  By adding a simple cotton printed skirt, a bright yellow casual bag, comfortable flats and dialling back the jewellery, this top went from evening to an outfit suitable for breakfast at the beach.



  • Part Two skirt – purchased in a little English village boutique in 2010
  • Brown Sugar Metallic Top – bought discounted at a blogger event
  • Mimco leather bag – thrifted
  • Mox Latte flats – purchased from the Orange Grove Markets
  • Chamilia “Family” charm on Mimco Fine chain – present to myself
  • Karen Walker Bunny earrings – holiday present

Boyo has skateboard lessons every weekend at Manly Beach – hello breakfast date for the Welshman and me!  We hit The Pantry, right on the beach.  Highly recommended.  The granola with fruit and yoghurt was delicious and so filling that I didn’t actually eat again until late afternoon.

By teaming casual silver jewellery and colourful casual accessories with the glamorous top, the outfit pulled together beautifully and worked.  I didn’t feel overdressed but I did feel like I’d made a bit of an effort.  As you do.

Have you got a really glamorous piece in your wardrobe that you can dial back with more casual pieces and rock your fashion world with your take on casual glam?  Do let me know – I’m nosy like that!

      Thanks, Karen. It’s deliberately oversized and so easy to wear. I like outfits that look like I’ve made much more of an effort than I have 😉ReplyCancel

    Love how you’ve paired the gold top with a leopard print flat, sometimes shoes can be a challenge xReplyCancel

      Ooh, they’re actually an open rope work pattern, but they do look like leopard print. That would work well! 🙂ReplyCancel

      That’s why casual glam works so well – perfect for the supermarket / school run! 🙂ReplyCancel
