Holiday Look Book

The holidays are here!  Ok, fine, they have been here for a bit-but now that it’s December, nobody is going to side-eye you for wearing sequins on the daily.  I am joining up with some of my blogger friends to share our Holiday Look Books!  Today I am bringing you Part I!


I love sequins.  If I had been even a remotely good dancer, I could have been a dancer on the Vegas strip. Flashy and over the top just calls my name. But for real wear, I like to tone down my sequins.

In this Part I, I’m showcasing 5 looks that can be taken from day to night to any holiday function! Sequin, rich hues, and velvet are where it’s at!


Tone down the flash by pairing a denim jacket and some sneakers with an otherwise flashy skirt!  Print mixing can also add some quirk to settle the sequins down; keep on holiday theme by adding a plaid scarf!

If daytime sequins has you running for your sled, satin is a great choice! Slip skirts can be found everywhere and in so many patterns and colors. Since it’s the holidays, red is calling my name!  Want to know how to fit your bulky sweaters in your thinner skirts?  Tuck them into some Spanx!

Heading out for an outdoor event?  Sequined leggings are going to be your friend!  Not only are they comfortable, but they pair well with just about anything.  Layer them with a coat and dressed up top OR with combat boots and an ugly sweater!  I like to go middle ground by keeping my top half preppy and casual and my bottom half dressed up.

Oh hello velvet!  I fell in love with velvet a couple years ago and now it takes up about 25% of my holiday wardrobe. These pants have a tuxedo stripe to dress them up even more.  To keep the pants the star, I went with a matte sequined top and a complimentary snake print pump.  This outfit is a great canvas for any occasion- swap the shoes for sneakers or a patent red pump!

Remember the casual sequined skirt from look one? It’s back! For the full on glam, grab a jewel tone velvet top and add in some statement jewels, ok A LOT of statement jewels.  If you can’t go overboard during the holidays when can you?
