Holiday Outfit: Tinsel, Shimmer & Shine

Hello, hello!  Thanks for stopping by for the first blog post of 2023! Welcome and I hope you feel as festive and rested as I am feeling after taking a couple of weeks off from social media just to be fully immersed in the season with friends and family.  Our holiday festivities were all wonderful.  We enjoyed two Christmas's with family, visiting and catching up with numerous friends from out of town and in town, and ringing in the New Year with some of our closest friends at the lake.  Overall it's been a fantastic couple of weeks and I am ready to slowly return to routine, although I have a few more days before returning to school/work on Monday.  Speaking of Mondays, I will continue to post regularly on Mondays and every third Thursday of the month will the the Ageless Style Link-Up party that you are invited to join. Speaking of which, this post is coming to you on a Friday, instead of Monday, because my friend and fellow blogger Mireille from Chez Mireille Fashion Travel Blog asked me to join her for a holiday outfit round-up so make sure to check her post out for some inspiration.

I am one of those girls that looks for any opportunity to dress up.  We don't go to fancy galas or events, so I usually do dress up for any special occasion because it makes me feel pretty.  This little matching outfit is ADORBS and although I am not one to wear a crop top much, this was just too cute and my BFF was so convinced that I should have it, so I did.  Even my teen was impressed that I was going to show a little mid-riff saying, "my mom in a crop top.  That's cool."  This is such a warm and fuzzy outfit with the tinsel thread, shimmering and throwing off a light glow especially under the glowing lights of a Christmas Tree.  I wore it on several occasions through the holiday season including for our staff party, Christmas dinner, drinks out, and I plan to wear the skirt to work paired with sweaters and a new lace top that I got.  I am not sure if I'll get much use of the top on its own but sometimes you treat yourself to something knowing that it's not going to be worn as much as other pieces in your closet but it makes you feel so good when you do put it on, and that's enough.  Not that this outfit needs any more sparkle and shine, but I did pair it up with some rose gold jewelry because can you really have to much sparkle during the holiday season.  

Thanks for stopping by, following along and always supporting me.  Happy New Year to you all and know that I wish you health, happiness and new adventures.

  1. What a fun outfit! It's so sparkly and perfect for Christmas season! :)

    Hope you are having a good start to the new year :)

  2. It's such a pretty outfit and I love that you can pair different things with it. You could still do the top under something if you wanted to. Love how sparkly it is!

    1. I like that idea a lot! I almost wore it out with a pair of vegan leather pants this weekend but it was a crowd I wasn't used to hanging out with so I decided to go less flashy and more neutral, but I definitely do like the layering idea!

  3. Ok, I have to say that I just LOVE this sparkly two piece outfit and you pull it off SO well! I hope your New Year is off to a great start!


  4. The shimmer and shine of this outfit is lovely.
    Have a lovely weekend.
