holiday style – subtle sparkle

From top left: warehouse metallic leather mini skirt (similar here), asos collection holographic shift dress, asos foiled jacquard hitchcock dress  (also in tall), BA&SH tiare dress, true decadence metallic jacquard bardot dress, asos metallic tee and pencil skirt in glitter, asos pencil skirt in mixed print and jacquard, asos premium pencil dress in floral jacquard

It’s that time of year again. Holiday season. When women around the globe throw practical style to the wind and buy the most ridiculous short, tight, sequinned thing we can find. In the emotional rush that comes along with finding that short, tight, glittery thing (“OMG! It SPARKLES!!”), we overlook the fact that we will only be able to wear it one night of the year, with zero possibility of reuse.

With a closet full of overwhelmingly sparkly, overwhelmingly cheesy sequin bodycon dresses accumulated over a decade of New Year’s Eves (because you can’t wear the same one twice!), I have finally decided to put on my big girl pants – or skirt, or dress – and invest in some holiday wear with more subtle sparkle. Maybe something knee-length. Maybe something work party appropriate. Maybe even something I will wear again.

What’s your go-to holiday style?

fall color

 DSC_4020 DSC_4026 DSC_4045forever 21 coat, pumps, and sunglasses (also similar here and here), h&m turtleneck, asos skirt (on sale!), the limited crossbody (similar here) and wallet (obsessed with this one) (c/o)

 Yes, it’s been awhile since my last post. If you’ve followed my blog for a little you already know that I’m not the most consistent poster. I hope it’s worth the wait, and that this outfit post was everything you have ever dreamed of and you will never have the urge to buy another fashion magazine or click through another blog again. But probably not. Happy October; I hope you like Halloween colors.

it’s not what it looks like

No, it’s not a Rag and Bone fedora. My sister has one of those beauties and every time I see her wearing it I want to snatch it off her pretty blonde head. So when I came across this little baby at H&M, I grabbed it, planted it on my noggin, and walked around the store, taunting the other shoppers with my awesome find (it was the last one!). It only cost me $20, and Andrew Jackson and I happily parted ways at the cash register.

PS: my right arm is looking super-svelte in this picture! I don’t know how that happened. Hello Sarah Connor!

spring mix

Something about the combination of black, white, and jewel green gets me every time. I hope you guys can handle my bedhead and (almost) makeup-free face.

Thoughts?
