Sequined Skirt Dressy or Casual

Sequined Skirt Two Ways | Style In Shape

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!

5 Pieces for Fall

buffalo-plaid-flannel

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 […]

Wife. Mom. Boss. A new perspective on conquering it all

Wife. Mom. Boss.  A new favorite shirt for a Sunday Funday with the fam in my home city. Enjoyed our little afternoon watching trains, sipping cava and eating tacos in the Cleveland Flats. I like to think part of it is due to my new perspective on conquering it all. Continue reading to learn more! Adam travels quite a bit for work but he was fortunate enough to slow (okay pretty much halt) work travel for most of this year since Lil Miss was born. Last month that travel lull came to an end and I had my first rodeo […]

Here in Southwest Ohio, we have a few more weeks of skin showing shoes. There is no more perfect time than early fall to bust out the (faux) suede shoes, peep toes and open backs!  Keep reading to see my current shoe choices!

Transition into Fall with a Denim Vest

Happy Labor Day friends! I hope you’ve enjoyed the weekend! We were fortunate to catch a breakfast with some friends that were in town visiting. Then the little man had a birthday party. We also visited a gorgeous sunflower field, enjoyed burgers at a favorite joint and had some fun at Alter Fest (a local festival). Not to mention lots of hang out time at home. It was a pretty perfect weekend! Fall tempted us with her refreshing cool weather earlier this weekend but the last two days it’s been HOT. I did grab a #PSL, so there’s that! Hello […]

Closet Finds FTW

I’m not a hoarder of much of anything besides crafting and wardrobe pieces. I’m not kidding when I say I still have the skirt I wore to my high school graduation! I don’t wear it too often because I’m not really a skirt girl. It’s a basic cream colored modest mini skirt from Express that is such a wardrobe staple that I can’t part with it.  Then there are other items that aren’t such a basic piece that I have kept. If I’m being really honest with you- unless a piece gets ruined, doesn’t fit or just waaay out of […]

Spring Shoulder Round Up

2017 the year the shoulders show off! Off the shoulder, cold shoulder & one shoulder styles are all over the spring looks. No matter what your budget, you can grab a top or two this season and I’ve rounded up some favorites under $55 for you! This relaxed one-shoulder top seems like something I could get a lot of wear with its casual fabric.  Old Navy, $19,94- curently on sale for $15. I’m drawn to how dramatic this poplin OTS top with the big bold sleeves. This would be so cute with skinnies and heels!  Jennifer Lopez for Kohl’s, $48- currently […]

Oversized Sweater FTW

This oversized knitted poncho has been my serious #1 go to sweater this season. Almost anytime someone would come to visit the baby, I’d throw this on. During holiday shopping I grabbed it on sale at Banana Republic Factory for $30. At the time, I was 34+ weeks pregnant and even at an xs, this sweater fit over the bump. Even though it runs large, I saved it for post-baby anyway. I’ve been head over heels with the burgundy/wine/blood red color since fall and I adore the chunky knit. It’s super easy to throw a long sleeve tshirt underneath and pair […]
