SHOP THE LOOK:
Kicking off the week with a sparkly holiday look! We spent the weekend watching about 10 inches of snow fall here in Michigan. I love how it looks outside after that first thick blanket of snow – definitely puts me in the mood for Christmas! That being said – I was definitely in a scramble to get some more holiday looks shot before the snow hit and temperatures take a nose dive this week (yikes).
One of my favorite trends for holiday dressing is mixing fancy with cozy. Think sequins and soft knits, or pleated metallics and fuzzy sweaters. It makes fabulous pieces like sequin skirts much more wearable.
Today I’m pairing a gorgeous silver matte sequin pencil skirt with a super soft varsity striped sweater. I’ve had my eye on a v neck sweater like this for a while now. It’s really easy to dress up or down, but I love it paired with a dressier skirt. My skirt is sold out but I’ve linked a few similar options including a shorter version of the exact same skirt under the “shop the look” section. It’s on major sale right now too. I like matte sequins a lot more than the shiny variety. Wearing shiny sequins can often make you feel like a human disco ball. Unless that is the look you are going for – I would suggest somethng more subdued like the skirt I’m wearing, ha!
