Do teeny tiny black sequins count as sparkles?

If so, then I totally qualify for the fashion challenge today! This is literally the only item in my closet with "sparkles".  Let me preface this post by saying, I do not love this outfit. It's kind of "blah". I've seen sparkles done much better. In fact, if I had paired a tank like Heather's at H&K Style Journey, then I think it would have really taken the outfit to another level.

I wore this Sunday afternoon, while my Little Guy and I went on a date. Yep, you heard me, his very first date. =) We went to his favorite place ever, Baskin Robbins, and I got to get my caffeine fix with a Mocha Blast. It was a win win! =)
Shirt: Target
Tank: Express
Jeans: American Eagle
Shoes (pictured below): My sister's
Belt: Bealls
Oh! I totally forgot that my flips had sparkles on them, too!

Definitely counts! I think the tank is really unique. It wouldn't be as special without the sequins. Love the addition of the zebra belt!
