All That Glitters

How to Wear Sequin Pants
outfit details: F21 Blouse, Gold Leggings ℅ Obviously Chic, Aldo Handbag, Aldo Heels, Necklace - similar here

It's officially the time of year to really go all out with festive fashion - go plaid, play with rich reds, and best of all - go gold.   When I spotted these Obviously Chic gold sequin leggings, I knew immediately they would be perfect for the holiday season and I couldn't wait to style them. As soon as the parcel arrived, I immediately threw them on along with one of my favourite hi-lo blouses, simple black heels, and classic chain necklace. The pairing seems so basic but the golden leggings add such a wonderfully fun  & playful element, perfect for a Holiday Party or New Years Eve look.

The Minimalist

How to wear the minimalist trend
outfit details: Vero Moda Jacket, American Eagle Striped t-shirt, Scarf from the The Bay, Aldo heels

In my mind, there is nothing more essential in ones closet than a striped shirt, some black denim, & a go-to pair of classic black heels. I consider these pieces "completer" pieces because if you're ever in doubt of what to pair with what, you can always turn to these pieces to finish and complete an outfit.

How to Wear Plaid and Pink
outfit details: Target Jacket - similar here, American Eagle Boyfriend Jeans - similar here, Shoes - old, Aldo Plaid Scarf 

Growing up, I was always all about my distressed and torn up denim. Especially while I was high school & college, if jeans didn't have a distressed element or some knee rips then I would take some scissors to them and give 'em a little update. Once I was out of school and I landed my very first job, I quickly realized that though I loved my distressed and edgy denim, they would have to be saved for the weekends.
