To continue my mini-series of “Holiday Party Outfits” this is the second outfit of this series. My office’s holiday party was actually held during work hours and we were required to work that day from opening to noon, so I had to keep my outfit office appropriate. I wanted to wear something work and party appropriate so what better piece than a sequin blazer?
I knew that I wanted to wear my sequin blazer but I also knew I did not want to wear denim with this blazer since I did not want this to look too casual. I decided to wear my J.Crew Mini Wool Pants, a black sheer top and St. John loafers to keep it comfy. I did switch shirts once I realized that the top was too sheer and inappropriate for work. Instead, I wore a black ribbed tank top that made the outfit look more work appropriate. I must admit I felt like Bruno Mars in this outfit because I felt like “24K Magic in the air…” (insert music notes). I had a lot of fun shooting this outfit as you can tell in the photos below. On a side note, this has to be the cheapest outfit featured on the blog so far!

It’s officially the holiday season and while everyone has their Christmas decorations out, I am pulling out all things sequin, sparkle and glitter! I love the holiday season because this is the best time of the year when I can wear all things sparkle without being judged, LOL. I own waaaaay too much sequin, embellished, glitter and sparkly clothes but that ain’t stopping me from purchasing more. So, here is this wonderful vintage (of course) glittery knit sweater I purchased at Goodwill, that I fell in love with and it was only $4.00!
As mentioned above, I purchased this vintage glittery sweater at Goodwill and only knew this would be one of my favorite pieces this season. Although it is vintage, this sweater is definitely one of those pieces that never goes out of style and I am very thankful for that because I saved myself a few bucks since H&M has several versions of this sweater for 10x the cost of what I paid. The sweater is cuffed at the sleeves and it features four beautiful buttons and trimmed with black fabric. The detailing on the sweater is what absolutely sold me. I wanted to wear this sweater to work, so I threw on my J.Crew Wool trousers, my black Steve Madden Lace-up heels and my black handbag. I added a red lip to finish this look, just to add a little bit of oomph to this whole look.

Off/Cold shoulder sweater tops might not be the brightest idea on a very cold fall day but it sure does look good. I wore this top on a perfectly cool fall day. Not too hot not too cold. To keep things as simple as possible, I threw on a pair of gray jeans and matching blush heels. I added a pair of dangle earrings and a rose lip. Just a simple and easy outfit perfect for a brunch or an afternoon coffee shop catch-up chat.
s/n: We drove around the city trying to find the perfect yellow tree with the perfect amount of leaves on the ground. I am obsessed with fall!
