Sometimes you buy a sequined skirt with no clue where to wear it but immediately vision a few ways on how to style it! I am sharing today two ways to style a sequined skirt dressy or casual!
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! Did you participate in my parade workout? I had a bit of trouble keeping up with it while cooking. My hubs came down with the flu so we ended up staying home for Thanksgiving. I some how managed to whip up all our favorites dishes last minute (and I am NOT the chef of the house!)
The holiday season has officially kicked for most of us. As much as I love to shop, I’m not one out shopping on Black Friday. I have only done the early morning thing twice in my life. Some years we go out later in the afternoon once the crowds have died down but I do most of my shopping online. I ordered a velvet blazer and pants.. still looking for a pretty cami to wear with them! I’ll probably order some fun nail wraps to take advantage of Jamberry’s Black Friday deals too!
If you saw my last post, I am all about Small Business Saturday! I am hoping to pop over to La Crique Boutique tomorrow morning because who doesn’t want to shop while sipping a mimosa? The last time I was there I picked up this sequined skirt. The skirt has a soft jersey lining but my favorite part is the length. The pencil cut is super flattering too! I am still not totally sure where/when I am wearing it. I am thinking maybe for Christmas Eve and I might even wear it to work one day because why not?! Today I have two looks on how to style this fun skirt; one dressy and one more casual.
For a dressy look I paired the skirt with a boatneck sweater that I purchased from Banana Republic in 2004. (Gosh, does that make this sweater vintage?!) I have tried to get put this sweater in my donate pile so many times but then I find a reason to wear it season after season. I threw on classic black pumps and a silver clutch that actually is vintage. I bought this old beauty off Ebay in 2007 and it is one of my go-to clutches.
For a more casual look I was inspired by La Crique’s Instagram post. A simple chambray button up is the perfect top to dress this sparkly skirt down a notch. I added heeled booties to keep with the casual vibe. A super edgy fringe necklace and simple studs complete this look!

It is Thanksgiving week! The feast we eat this Thursday is my favorite meal of the year. I do not hesitate to indulge in all the potatoes, stuffing and pies- oh and the wine! After all it is a meal only made once a year and I am all about balance. With that being said, Thanksgiving should not be a day to skip out on a workout. Even a small one will make you feel better about wishing you wore elastic waist pants later that day! This year I am going to do this Thanksgiving Day Parade Workout I created in […]
With extended family dispersed around the Midwest, my household usually travels for Thanksgiving. Fortunately for us it is usually only a three to four hour car ride. Nevertheless, I still want to wear a super comfy outfit for our little road trip. With all the cute sweaters in the stores right now it is easy to create a stylish comfy holiday travel look! The sweater I am wearing to create this look is from a previous Victoria’s Secret collection. It is a multi-way sweater that can be worn as a cowl neck, off the shoulder, or one shoulder like I […]
Between holding babies, often while carrying diaper and/or grocery bags, and keeping my house in order — all after a long day sitting in front of a computer — there isn’t a day that goes by where I don’t benefit from a good should stretch. This is an often forgotten part of the body that we really put through the paces every day, so today I am sharing the 6 shoulder stretches that really help me recover and feel refreshed at the end of a tough day. These stretches are quick and easy, but don’t be fooled — they are […]
It’s safe to say that my obsession for outerwear is always present (but it kicks into high gear when the weather turns cool!). So when I saw this ruffle bomber jacket at Kohl’s over the summer, I knew it would be a great addition to my jacket collection. Little did I know that ruffle bomber jackets would be so popular for fall this year! Have you seen this one at Target? I was there the other day, and loved the feel of the material! (and under $30!) I’m pretty sure I am channeling the 80’s or 90’s in this outfit because something […]
Hey gals! As I mentioned briefly before the guest post from Ladies, Lattes and Lifting, I have been working on a fitness calendar and I’m rolling it out for the month of November! With the holidays approaching, we will all be facing the time crunch to get those to-do lists done. I stand by my belief that you can make meaningful progress toward your health and fitness goals by dedicating just 10 minutes a day. The key is to be consistent! With that in mind I have created my first ever Take 10 Challenge! The challenge is to set aside […]

Reports from fashion week are making it clear that red is the color for fall. All shades — from bright red to deep ruby — are in, but monochromatic looks are especially hot! I decided to shop my closet for pieces I already owned to create the current “it” look. I settled on deeper shade of red with a neutral heel to try a trend: monochrome red! I received my blouse as a gift from a friend a few year’s ago who picked it up at Nordstrom Rack. I love the lace detail on the back shoulders! My pants are […]
Although October is in full effect, you would never know it with this unseasonably warm weather we’ve had in Dayton. However, the cool, crisp fall air has made an appearance this week and given how late it is in the year – it’s probably here to stay. While this probably means a healthy dose of drizzly rain, gusty winds and trees losing those beautiful leaves to accompany those falling temperatures, it’s not all bad. After all, fall fashion is my favorite and I am looking forward to rocking things like the 5 pieces for fall that I am sharing today […]
