Sparkly, shimmery holiday outfit

Silver silk top:  Banana Republic, 2009
Lace pencil skirt: Ann Taylor, here
Necklace and earrings:  Ann Taylor, 2010
"Snakeskin" clutch: Banana Republic, 2010
Red pumps:  Max Studio
Hello lovely ladies.  I wore this outfit for a holiday dinner with friends.  It's not as colorful as I normally go, but I felt fun and festive in it!  Thanks so much for all your open and honest feedback the other day about the J.Crew jewel-neck top and this skirt.  The top went back, and based on your opinions I decided to wear this top with the lace skirt rather than the sequin polka dot top. I like how the silver top matches the gray lining of the skirt, and I was proud of myself for shopping my own closet!  I want to say how much I love the blogging community, and the fact that I have yet to have a mean comment.  Everyone is always so kind and classy with their comments and opinions, and I just appreciate it so much.  So thank you! 

The holidays are my favorite time of year for dressing up.  When else can I wear a necklace made of gigantic sparkly globes with matching earrings?  I will be sure to get a close-up shot of this necklace next time I wear it, as it is just awesome for the holidays.  I remember finding it on sale at Ann Taylor after Christmas a couple years ago, and then randomly finding the earrings at a different Ann Taylor location.  It was meant to be! 

Do you love dressing up for the holidays?


  1. Great outfit! I love dressing up for the holidays :) It's so much fun. Your necklace is perfect for the holiday season - I need more fun bling in my life.


    1. Thank you! Yes, a little bling is always a good thing! :)

  2. So pretty! :) The combo is stunning.

    I am a huge fan of lace, and that skirt is amazing.

    Hope you had fun!

    1. Thank you so much! I have not been impressed with Ann Taylor in quite some time, so I was surprised when I found this skirt and had to have it IMMEDIATELY! It's really nice quality, you should check it out! :)

  3. Such a pretty outfif and the pops of red are just perfect. Love this look and that the top didn't cost a dime! That way you can save your $$ for shopping those great after Christmas sales!
