Day 92: Pop. Fizz. Gulp.

Happy New Year’s Eve! I just had to add a little sparkle to my outfit at work today, but the sequins will be out to play tonight! NYE is the only night outside of being in Vegas that you can wear as much sparkle, glitter or sequins and no one can call you tacky–you’re being festive! However, it isn’t nighttime yet, so I had to be patient and use minimal glitz for now. I chose this sparkly, black polka-dotted top because they remind me of mini versions of the ball that will drop in Times Square. I added this paneled pencil skirt to pick up the silver tones from the polka dots. Jewelry was easy: rhinestones. I added a little frosting, if you will, to my wrist and ears and left it at that.

Update: My NYE outfit was all about sequins. It’s the one day a year I can do it, so you bet I did! I’m obsessed with how it came out.

Day 91: Alone together

Sometimes wearing all of one color can be really drab and boring, that’s why I like to wear a couple of pieces in slightly similar, but still different, shades. Today I settled on a blue-grey color scale. I had almost forgotten about these light blue corduroy pants I bought at Anthropologie (I know, I already told them I’m sorry). I was originally going to save them until it was closer to spring time, but I think this varied shade look does them justice. I used to love corduroy, but then I took a large break from them. I’ve been more into them this season and jumped at these lovely colored ones. I chose to pair them with this grey and white top in order to stay within the color palette and add another pattern to the mix. I think you can easily make grey un-boring by adding little details like that. I am, of course, obsessed with these boots and find any reason to wear them. I think their grey colors gives off blue tones when worn with this outfit. The result is an [almost] alone color worn all together.

Day 90: Coincidentally

Today’s outfit was all about comfort. I try to give myself a day to just be comfy and cozy without any fuss. I especially needed that today. I automatically pulled out my UGGs and picked out this sweater because they are almost the same fabric and have a similar color. Whenever I’m out shopping, I always keep what I have at home in mind so that “coincidences” like that can happen. I chose this periwinkle (I love that word) peplum top to inject a little color into the outfit. Even when I want to be lazy and laid back, there are still ways to look good doing it.

Day 89: Tree hugger

Scouting locations to take my pictures each day has become a fun task, and I couldn’t resist this big, beautiful tree. Getting myself up onto said tree was another task entirely. Hysterical doesn’t even begin to cover it. When I originally wore this dress, I wore it without anything underneath. By adding leggings, I felt much, much more comfortable with the outfit. I’d definitely say calling it a “dress” is a very loose definition, especially for day wear. I think adding the leggings made it look much more flattering too. I love this dress and its ability to change with the seasons. I didn’t want to be too matchy-matchy so I added this long grey sweater. I really like how dresses look with long sweaters and coats. I don’t know what it is about it, but I instantly feel more put together. Lastly, I chose this sparkly necklace to off-set the dark tones in the rest of the outfit. I love dark colors, but I don’t think any outfit is complete without a glittery touch.

Day 88: Stop & skirt the roses

While I’d never refuse a bouquet of roses, I’d almost rather wear them printed on my clothes. Flowers are pretty, but once they’re cut, they shrivel and fade in a week. In comparison, I’ve had this skirt for almost four years. Roses, in the right colors and design, are beautiful, feminine and timeless. I love this skirt because of the colors and little details drawn with the roses. It makes it look more modern and chic. I decided to do a little double pattern work and pair the skirt with this rose/floral lace peplum top. The patterns are similar enough that they go together, but still SO different that they compliment each other. Such a perfect marriage of pieces. The top and skirt get along famously on their own, but I added this simple sweater so I wouldn’t freeze. I was so sleepy this morning I decided to do a braid–and I must point out that I’ve been doing it long before Katniss made it cool. I also thought this hairstyle would allow my new, sparkly earrings to really shine. In addition to the literal roses, I added my watch with the rose-colored face. Rose jewelry is one of my favorite trends of 2013!
