Christmas is over and the countdown to New Years has begun! I hope everyone who celebrated enjoyed some quality time with loved ones. Nate has had a few days off so I haven't really been in the mood for sitting down to blog on my computer...My friend Rachelle decided to take the entire month of December off from blogging and I think that's the way to go! Oh, and more about Rachelle and meeting up with our other blogging friends soon!

But for now, let's talk about sequins. They are ubiquitous during the holidays and for good reason. You can go all out in a sequin skirt or dress, or you can do what I've done here and dress them down a bit.

Honestly this has been my favorite holiday outfit I've worn in years. For any of my longtime readers, do you guys remember this gold sequin skirt? I think I've had it for about 6 or 7 years! Maybe longer because it was way before I got married. I bought it during a big Zara sale and wore the heck out of it. Somehow, miraculously, it has survived countless closet clean-outs. Recently I saw Helena from Brooklyn Blonde wearing an oversized sweater with a sequin mini, and it inspired me once again to bring on the shine for a nice dinner out. It would obviously be perfect for New Years Eve, although we don't have any plans yet so you might just find me in PJ's instead! Either way, it feels great to get reacquainted with an older item of clothing. It's like visiting with an old friend.

Are you into sequins for the holidays?


  1. Oh my! I love this holiday outfit! Add tights for my cold climate and I would totally wear this! In fact I have 2 sequin minis that are begging to be worn this way. I love how the casual, cozy sweater dresses it down a bit too.

  2. I really love this combo, and the blush sequin mini is perfect. I'm glad you've held on to it, because it's so stylish!

  3. This is so cute and such a great balance of dressy-casual. (So San Diego!) Glad that skirt survived all of the clean outs. And yes, I'm a fan of sequins for the holidays! They're just fun and sparkly!
