Have a B R I G H T and M E R R Y Christmas!

 
 
 
 
Tis’ the Season for sequins!  I can’t get enough.  Between Christmas and New Year’s I want nothing more than to shine bright like a diamond! How perfect is this emerald green sequins dress?  I need something with long sleeves to live in Ohio; However, it’s not a white Christmas this year, just a rainy one. 
 
The red peacoat paired with the green dress is the perfect palette for Christmas.  I wanted to keep the hat and shoes neutral in color but still stand out!  I don’t think you can go wrong with bows and more sequins. With the plunging neckline of the dress, I felt like I was missing something not having a necklace.  When in doubt, you guessed it, add something shiny. The gallery pave link necklace from Ann Taylor was the perfect addition.
 
How are you spending Christmas?  Hopefully with those that you love the most!  I am back to work the day after Christmas (TGIF) so I’ll try not to get into any spiked egg nog 😉
 
Merry Christmas to all!

Neonnnnnnn

Now that the sun has finished hibernating (cold weather, your days are numbered!), the Short North is bustling with joggers, bikers, dog walkers, coffee drinkers, friends brunching and so much more!  What do these types of people have in common?  They’re all wearing neon!

I, of course, do not want to be left out of the trend!  I love these neon mint pants – think Essie’s mint candy apple nail polish.  But, if my pants are loud, they will speak for themselves.  I wanted to keep the top neutral. I love basics!  Dress them up, dress them down.  I picked up this striped shirt when I was vacationing in Madrid back in 2011. 

Time out.  Can we focus on this necklace for a minute?  I love the color combos and faux gems that make up this necklace.  An add for Sammy Dress Clothing was on my Facebook news feed awhile ago, promoting an inexpensive high waisted swimsuit.  I ended up purchasing this necklace for $11!  From my research, I’ve gathered that Sammy Dress sells popular necklaces at a discounted price by changing the name of the jewelry.  So you really have to search for what you want, but you’ll definitely get a bang for your buck!

 
 
 

 

Get wild with this leopard print skinny belt.  It’s not holding up my pants – it’s purely for decoration!

I just bought these shoes.  Something about the brown/black combo with the chunky heel.  Not to mention, the designer, Franco Sarto, makes the trendiest shoes comfortable!
