Feeling Festive (How to Wear a Sequin Skirt)

Share It:

Merry Christmas!
I've been conspicuously absent from the blogging world lately - well, really for the past several months - and I couldn't be more pumped to get back in the swing of things. I had an absolutely amazing time abroad and am doing my best to get things back under control (like my weight, ha) and do what I can to take charge of my schedule and goals for the upcoming year. More about that to follow! Until then (I know you're waiting with bated breath), you can get ready to see what you may have come to expect this summer - regular posts MWF and some sweet little collaborations with small yet inspiring businesses and creators.
Back to basics, and absolutely thrilled about it!

I put together a festive little outfit this weekend - my hunter green silk printed top paired with this cute gold sequin skirt make for a polished, yet unexpected combination. Add black suede pumps, a dark lip (I'm loving H&M's lip shades - totally went wild over them in Europe!), and your go-to leather jacket for a put-together and just slightly edgy look that's perfect (and appropriate) for just about any holiday gathering. Black booties and tights would change things up a bit, or you could take a leap and throw on a furry vest to play with textures a little more. 

Want to shop my look? Well, a whole lot of this outfit is resale - this cute skirt is LL Bean via Clothes Mentor ($14!), the top is from a little tiny resale shop in Portland that is now closed - and the rest of it is a little older. Either way, I've linked very similar (and affordable) pieces below! 


  1. STUNNING! Love your outfit girlfriend, it's so festive and the jacket *heart eyes*.

  11. I'll be honest, I didn't think anyone but Taylor Swift could pull off a sequined skirt, but you did it, and it looks fab!

    And if you don't mind me asking, I've seriously been in the process of pouring over hundreds of blog headers to replace my simple font, did you design your blog header or the watercolor flowers behind it? They are beautiful!!!

    Please email me or let me know, I'm obsessed :D
