The holidays are always my favorite time to bring out the shiny and sparkly items in my closet that are too flashy for everyday wear. Another tradition of ours is to go to a Candlelight Service with family on Christmas Eve, so it was the perfect occasion to put on my sparkliest garb and jewels and celebrate the reason for the season!
I’ve had this champagne sequin top for a few years and have worn it for various Christmas and New Years events; I also have it in a royal blue color, both from Target, and they’ve held up beautifully since I’ve worn them so infrequently. Most sequin-adorned clothing I buy inevitably loses some sparkle after a few washes, but the tiny sequins on this shirt never fall off and give an all-over shine that I think perfectly captures the spirit of the holidays.
I wore the top with these high-waisted white skinny jeans that also have a subtle silvery shine embroidery on the destroyed patches and my sparkliest jewelry that included crystal stud earrings, a Mariana crystal cross necklace, and a Givenchy rose gold crystal bracelet that was a piece of my wedding jewelry, all sparkling with swarovski crystals and all treasured gifts that are some of my favorite pieces in my jewelry box. It only seemed appropriate to bring them all out for such a joyous occasion! I added darker jewel-toned accessories with a burgundy crossbody and indigo blue suede heels to not be too bright and compete with the rest of the outfit. We arrived at the church early to take a stroll through the beautiful remembrance gardens and reflect on all of our blessings before the service; it was a wonderful evening spent with people I love!
What is your favorite way to dress up for the holidays? Do you have any special pieces that only get brought out during this time?
