Last year I bought this sequin miniskirt because I LOVED it. When I got it home, I tried it on and STILL loved it. But then it hung in my closet. All. Year. Never wore it. Not once. Am I the only one this happens to? You see something you love, you buy it, then . . . never . . . quite know . . . how to wear it. Enter my sister. I may be the makeup guru, but when I need fashion advice . . . she’s the one to go to. I used her “formula” (we’re both math geeks) to come up with this outfit. And? I LOVE it. I can wear my awesome sequin skirt, still be warm enough for the UP winters, AND not feel crazy overdressed. The best part? It’s actually comfortable. In Shana’s words, “OMG that’s effing awesome. Clearly, I’m a genius.” Yes, she is. 🙂
Faux Leather Jacket (similar)
Graphic T (old, but I love this one and check out the boutique below for more options)
Boots (similar, but with a shorter heel for comfort)
Like Shana said in her post, there’s something to be said for wearing all of your favorite things atthesametime. I have always, always loved leather jackets and sequins. Adding a graphic t takes it down a notch (in a good way . . . the same way adding a turtleneck to sequin leggings brings the whole look down a notch) and adding opaque fleece tights and ankle boots makes it stylish enough for all your holiday parties but warm enough for the winter weather.
PS – Thanks to the Ore Dock for letting us shoot there and I need to give a big shout out to my very patient husband, Zack, for taking the pics . . . thanks for putting up with me. 😉
