Holiday Sequins


I brought the sequins out to play again this holiday season!  I think it's hard to resist them this time of year. I really wanted to create a look that was very different from the way that I would normally style a sequins piece, so I decided to switch things up by pairing this skirt with a cozy sweater and I really love the outcome!


What I'm Wearing
Skirt: Dynamite | Sweater: Forever21 | Shoes: Schutz [also love these] | Bag: Prima Donna 
Lipstick: Urban Decay Catfight

The fact that I am not bundled up in layers and have bare legs in mid December is kind of mind blowing!  I feel like I always mention the weather, but I really just can't get over it.  I am so used to freezing this time of year and struggling outside to get through a shoot.  It's just been a lovely surprise and I hope that it lasts a bit longer. 

I haven't been able to put many holiday looks together like I normally do, but I was looking forward to styling this skirt!  Typically, I would get the urge to dress up sequins with something fancier, but I also really like pairing two unexpected pieces together.  I've always loved the combination of skirts and sweaters.  It creates this really cool balance and also makes the outfit appropriate for so many different things.  As soon as I got this sweater, I thought of putting it together with this skirt.  It helps to tone down the sequins while still allowing it to be the focal point of the outfit. I decided on gold pumps and a gold bag to make this look pop a bit more for the holidays.  I would definitely wear this outfit to a party!  I feel like it's not too much, but just enough. 

  Happy Thursday!
