All Day Sparkle



What I'm wearing:
*Forever 21 Wide-fit Sweater
*Gap Sequin Skirt (similar here)
*H&M Opaque Black Tights
*Bandolino Patent Flats in Black (similar here)
*Forever 21 Bow Headband
*MICHAEL Michael Kors Hamilton Large Tote in Luggage


A sequin skirt is not something I would wear to work on a normal basis, but I felt that since yesterday was our team "holiday lunch" and a "holiday dinner" (I know, both on the same day, weird!) it was appropriate. To make it work for day, I paired the sparkly skirt with a chunky knit sweater, plain tights, and simple flats. This toned down the look so it didn't look like I was ready to hit the clubs. It was easy to go from the office during the day to a bar after work in this festive outfit!


Here's a better look at the sequined skirt. I love the silver sequins and think that they are pretty subtle, or as subtle as sequins can get. The nail polish I'm wearing is American Apparel "Peacock".

  14. I've been thinking about getting that skirt, but I wasn't sure if it would ever see life outside of my closet. You have totally convinced my to get one now. I love the way the sparkle is toned down by the loose top and flats. Perfect!

  15. I think this is a fantastic holiday work outfit! This time of year I feel like you can get away with wearing sequins and sparkle to work -- you're just getting into the holiday spirit after all. :)
