Holiday Ready.. (Already!)







JACKET: Forever 21 | SEQUIN LEGGINGS: Lucy Paris (wearing sz S) (try THESE faux leather leggings for a more tame option!) | WHITE TUNIC: Free People (tucked in-XS) | BLACK BOW: Nasty Gal (yes, 2 days in a row!) | BAG: old (almost identical here & here for only $28) | HEELS: Christian Louboutin (similar here & here) | EARRINGS: BaubleBar (similar) | RING: David Yurman | SUNGLASSES: Ray-Ban | LIPS: 'Please Me

Yes, I am kind of jumping the gun here, but if I've learned anything over the years - shopping for holiday parties, events, weddings, etc. is best done before ahead of time. All of the great (& affordable) pieces are always sold out when it comes time for those special occasions so I've learned to be proactive. 

This look was inspired by something I saw on Pinterest years ago.. a look that I never thought I'd be able to recreate & find similar pieces. As I was browsing on Nordstrom last week, I was so thrilled to see that these pants would not cost an arm & a leg. I knew pairing them with this tunic would be great because it brings the sequins down a notch (to a more casual level). (Also, I'm a huge fun of long, flowy tops - they are the best for wearing leggings, vests, & boots with!) Anyway, over the next 5-6 weeks, I am going to share a holiday something or other at some point.

Oh hey, PIPERLIME is running 25% off of shoes - today's the last day! So many great boots, including HUNTER Boots, Steve Madden, Sam Edelman. I am craving these

  39. Gorgeous! absolutely love this look and will definitely have to recreate it for a holiday event. However, do you mind telling me how tall you are and what size the jacket is that you're wearing? The sleeves on outerwear always end up being to short on me and I love a frame of reference before I order the jacket. Thanks!
