Today on the blog, it is all about those mermaid vibes. I gues that is another thing I love about this skirt. The total Ariel vibes. But, instead of seashells I went with this strappy tank from Express. I love this shade of green with navy. And for today’s Christmas shopping adventure I wanted something festive or close to it.
I love sequins and how they are not just for night time and date nights or parties. Or even just prom. They are more in for daylight hours and sequins are in for spring 2017 too! SO grab your sparkle and bling on!
There is a trick to sequins. A trick to not looking like a disco ball, but if that is your jam then go for it!You do you. But for me, I want to be subtle. Because outfits with sequins will certainly get you the attention. Will definitely make people stop and look. I got a lot of compliments on this outfit today. And why not? It is a great outfit. I like that the navy just goes so well with the skirt which a bright green. What I like to do to “tone down” the sequins skirt is to wear a simple basic with it. Like a tank or a tee. It works so well together. And it makes the skirt much more casual. Much much more casual. Which I like. And the basics are super affordable. Like you can get the tshirts at Target or H&M pretty cheap.
I like that this outfit can be worn in the summery hot months and in the cooler winter months. Add a jacket or coat. OR add some long sleeves under the top. Layering like that is very in right now.
My love of sparkle knows no bounds and this outfit is sparkle and more sparkle. Without looking like a Christmas tree ornament. And as far as being jolly, yes it did its trick that is until I happened and spilt my lunch on it. AH. Panda Express orange chicken and this sequin skirt do not MIX. #lifeofaklutz
So, today while on our Christmas shopping trip my hubby and I spotted Areopostale and their big ol 75% off the whole store. I guess they are rebranding. Anyways, we went for jeans for the hubby and I got a few things too. Like a new blue plaid shirt and him some pants. And a new sweater that is perfect for this weather. Ill do a shopping haul. Because we also got some great deals at Children’s place!
How is your week going so far? Well other than getting most of the shopping done, I have one problem. My son got sick. So we are off to a good start right? He has become one with couch. Poor kid.
So if you don’t see much posts this week of outfits, it is due to an unhappy little boy.
Being sick is no fun.
