As we all know from this post and others, I love my sequins. Whenever any one asks, I always describe my style as classic with a feminine touch and sequins always add that extra touch that my otherwise classic pieces need. Recently I’ve been loving my sequined skirts and pairing them with big, chunky knits. The juxtaposition in style and texture is so fun and gives my sequined pieces a new, fun twist. 
I’ve been obsessed with this sequined pencil skirt since I got it, but I’ve had a little trouble transitioning it into my every day wardrobe. However, now that it is holiday season, this skirt is perfect for all of my holiday parties and other events. Dress is up with a nice top or give it a cozy edge with a big sweater like this. Either way, I’m in love and you don’t have to worry about accessories when you have a fab skirt like this! Even though the sweater tones the look down a little, it is still appropriate for any event you have and the skirt is on mega sale right now, so much so that you will probably only be able to find it in stores at J.Crew! How would you integrate sequins into your wardrobe? I would love to hear your thoughts and maybe I can experiment for both of us! Until next time…

One thing I always struggle with is dressing up for an event. Am I dressed up enough? Am I dressed up too much? Do I even like my outfit? A lot of times when I dress up, I feel like I am losing part of my style and personality in my outfit. But no more. I have finally found the perfect cocktail-level outfit for me! And of course it involves as many sequins as I could find.
I picked up this sequined pencil skirt from J.Crew awhile ago. I know exactly how I’m going to wear it come winter…with a chunky sweater and motorcycle boots. But now, I had no idea what to do with it or where it was appropriate to wear it. 
But then, I had an unexpected cocktail-attire party come up last minute. I didn’t have a dress and didn’t have time to find one so I needed to make what I had work. Finally, I thought, the perfect chance to wear my sequins! With so much going on with my skirt, it seemed best to stick with a simple, black, off-the-shoulder top and black heels. I was so excited about this look, but it definitely needed the necklace to fill-up some of the empty space. I think statements earrings would have worked just as well. 
I was so pleased with how this outfit came together and I can’t wait for another cocktail party or colder weather so I can wear this skirt again! Do you have a go-to look you always wear for cocktail parties? Until next time, XO. 
P.S. My clutch is actually my wallet! You can get it here and there is also a similar one linked below
