Festive Sparkle

  Jacket? Maison Scotch (similar here, with studs here or with sweater sleeves here) Skirt? c/o eShakti (here) Boots? Aldo Denim shirt? Joe Fresh, thrifted (similar here) Beaded purse and necklace? Thrifted


Due to the constant stream of holiday decorations rolling by on my Instagram feed, I decided to start decorating for the holidays in a timely manner. In a rare moment of pre-planning, I had actually put all the Christmas decorations in one, labelled Tupperware container in the attic last year. Matt, however, in a moment of non-planning, had put that Tupperware container in the very back corner of the attic when he decided to organize. The good news is that I got the Tupperware out. The bad news is that the attic is a mess again. 
Regardless, things are coming along nicely, decoration wise. Putting out all the festive junk made me realize I dress like I decorate. I put a bunch of random crap together and then add a good amount of sparkle. I'm consistent like that.

Very pretty look. Random plus sparkle is a good thing!

Sparkle and shine, all the time...

We managed to unload our attic, but somehow we overcrowded the garage. As we continue moving boxes from location to location, our hope is that eventually the items will just start jumping out of the boxes.

Here's to Holiday cheer and next year's spring cleaning!

I bought red and green totes last year for our holiday stuff and felt very smug and organized when I put them away. Sometime over the summer my husband (not recognizing the significance of the Official Colors of Christmas) took all the decorations out and replaced them with sporting goods. :) I'm going to let him re-find all the stuff.

How do you like the quality of that fabric? I keep putting the dress version that eShakti is selling into my cart and then not buying it (though that's as much because pencil-style doesn't look so good on me).

As always, 'love your sparkle and shine, and love your city. (I also love days like today, when I can tell where you are in your awesome city!)

In other news, why so blue in these photos, hilarious and exceptionally style-y one? Is Matt talking to you about the mess in the attic?

I love, love this look! Also, I know how you feel about the Christmas decorations. Mine are packed away and it's going to be a mess to get them out, but I'm so ready for them! XO

A-Dubs- I know! I look so dour! Pictures were difficult because it was so grey so I took what I could. Ended up with bitch face pics:/ haha...
Bridget- I like the material of the skirt for sure. My complaint is that the lining is attached at the hem to the skirt. This kinda bugs me because it should be free at the hem...

Chloe Moon said...

Ooo I love your festive skirt!! This year when I put things away I'm going to try and put them all together...maybe... =)

This outfit's a hall-of-famer! Love the denim shirt with the sparkly skirt, the jacket with contrasting leather sleeves, the fringe on your necklace and purse echoing each other and pulling out the gold in the skirt, the black tights and booties. So fab!
