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!

This year I started my Christmas shopping in November!  Between my company’s sample sale, Black Friday, Cyber Monday, in store deals, and the new Green Monday, I had my shopping finished by early December!  I love wrapping gifts – I don’t care how much I spend in paper, ribbons, bows, and gift tags – I need the presentation to be as nice as the gifts! 
 
I love everything about Christmas – the cookies, egg nog, decorating, lights, sequins, and MOVIES!  I don’t have cable, but I do have Netflix and Hulu.  Every night, you can pretty much count on me tucking myself into bed with a holiday movie.  Abercrombie kids released a few shirts from Charlie Brown Christmas, Home Alone, Christmas Vacation, and Elf – the classics!  I was able to squeeze myself into a child’s XL and I do not regret my purchase.  This is my absolute favorite line in the movie!!!
 
In order to dress up my casual tee, I did the only thing I know how – add sequins!! These sequins joggers are a comfy fit! I like the elastic waistband – perfect for holiday gatherings.  The blazer adds sophistication and the statement necklace adds some more glam.  On my feel I am wearing black booties with a small touch of leopard print – because leopards a neutral – and it ties in the black blazer.
 
What are your favorite holiday movies to watch??
