Holiday Outfit Inspiration

I have a confession to make. I have a thing for sequins. I’m not even too sure why, but it is not as bad as it was in college. That time might have been comparable to looking like I was going to Vegas for the weekend (even mid-week). I do have an unexplainable attraction to sparkly things. Kind of like a crow I guess. When I heavily purged my closet to try to get in to the capsule mindset, I got rid of a lot of it. I think I am now down to 2-3 pieces which are more appropriate for holiday party wear than everyday wear. Back in college I would have rolled out of bed and wore a sequin blazer to class, years later I have mellowed somewhat (although the urge is still there). Now that we have moved in to the holiday season at full force I thought it might be a good idea to put together some budget friendly holiday looks.

  1. I love your style. Your blog has become a source of inspiration for me, as I’ve been having trouble “transitioning” from girlhood to womanhood. It’s awesome to know that I can maintain my style, but adjust it for different occasions.

    Needless to say, I adore your blog. Thanks for being such an inspiration to live wonderfully, inspirationally, and gracefully.

    I nominated you for a Liebster Award:

    Thanks again- keep the posts coming!

    • Thank you. This is probably the nicest comment I have ever received. Transitioning is hard. I was pregnant with my first child at 24 and I thought I had to not only make a transition to “womanhood” but also “momhood”. It took me several years to realize that dressing for who I was, was more important than dressing for an age or societal niche. Just be you and your style will evolve with you.
