I love anything that is sequined around the holidays!  If it’s sparkling, shining, or glittering it feels super festive to me.  This green, off the shoulder, sequin dress, is nothing short of fabulous.  It’s fun and flirty yet in a classic and sophisticated way.  My Sherpa Wedge Jacket from Express has come in handy many times.  While it isn’t something I wear often, there are certainly special occasions in that make me very glad I added it to my closet.  Mine is older but it’s still available and on sale for a great price in a slightly darker shade.  It’s a good staple piece I can’t see going out of style for quite some time.  It instantly dresses up and adds a touch of glam to any look.

My Olive Panache Earrings from my dear friend over at Purple Peridot were the perfect addition.  Had I not already had them, anything sparkly would’ve been just fine.  I didn’t want to “over bling” the dress with too many other jewels so I kept the necklace simple with my Kendra Scott pendant and a stretchy gold cuff.

Funny story on this dress…it’s my neighbor’s…my 13 yr old neighbor!  I know right?  I actually stopped at Forever 21 to pick it up for her after work one day and thought, I wonder if that would fit me.  I instantly knew this was a great piece for the holidays and especially New Year’s Eve and wanted to showcase it for you all.  I asked to borrow it and voila!  I’ll be honest, 1. I would totally wear this for a night out, I absolutely adore it and it’s so me. 2. I would size up…maybe twice:)  I generally do about 75% of the time in Forever 21 just because the sizing feels more like juniors to me with most items.  Nonetheless, I was thankful I could squeeze into it and find some fabulous items at home to pair with it.

“The holiday season is a perfect time to reflect on our blessings and seek out ways to make life better for those around us” – Terri Marshall 

Words cannot express how excited I am for Christmas this year.  Our youngest is 2 1/2 and I believe he will really enjoy his presents and the magic this season.  My 7 and 9 year old are patiently anticipating Santa’s arrival, although like most kids, they struggle with staying on the “nice” list.  Even with 2 (that’s right TWO) elves on our shelf watching and reporting each night, you would think they would try harder…nope.  I kid, I make them sound terrible but they’re not at all.   I am excited for them to open their gifts from us and see what Santa brings this year.  Mostly, I am looking forward to spending time with my family and loved ones over the next several days and enjoying this time together.  These moments are precious and time goes by way too quickly.  I wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas!
