Stylish Monday December Linkup - All the Sparkles.
Our Facebook group of ladies from the Stylish Monday are back this holiday month with sparkles, ALL. THE. SPARKLES. This "theme" we agreed upon is perfect for December because we celebrate the birthday of Jesus and all the holidays. Even more perfect for this year because we need all the reason to shine, shimmer and sparkle in 2020! I love how much sparkle this post has and it is my favorite collaboration I have done with these ladies, YET! My favorite outfit this month belongs to Emma - that sweater and skirt are perfect (I want them both)!! But there is one element I love in everyone's looks: Nancy's champagne satin skirt, Nina's gold star - the perfect tree topper, Suzanne's fun Rolling Stones tee, Amy's jewelry, Shelbee's boots, Nicole's mesmerizing pink skirt, Andy's tank top and clutch, Julie's joggers and pumps - I am in love with them - and Michele's buffalo plaid tote and sneakers which are both festive in red (my favorite color). I am glad that I chose to style a skirt just like some of these other fashionistas. I went for a sparkly and shimmery monochrome look in shades of hot pink, burgundy and cranberry. Let's look at my outfit in more detail, below.
ALL THE SPARKLES.
This has been the year of rediscovering my closet – COVID and all – so I am wearing an outfit featuring pieces I have owned, like this fitted cropped beaded+sequined hot pink tank top by Bebe styled beautifully with a maroon shimmery tweed skirt by Loft. I love that asymmetrical ruffle. I went for a monochrome look by pairing these pieces with these cranberry studded suede booties (from a couple of years ago). As far as sparkle, it's not just on my sequined+beaded tank top but in my jewelry, the crystal hair barrette that Vivian chose for me to wear, the shimmery tweed skirt, the studs on my boots and even a little shimmer on the eyes through the makeup palette I chose. But of course more than me, it is my gorgeous gold tree that sparkles the most! Between the top, my rhinestone hair clip, my jewelry and my gorgeous gold tree I got a lot of sparkle in this look. ‘Tis the season to Shimmer and SPARKLE!!”
Now check out my friends and link up with all of us, at the bottom of this post, too.
ANDREA of Pearls and Pantsuits
“I’ve had this jacket for a while and just love the subtle pop of sparkle on the sleeves, so when I found the fully sequined top at TJMaxx I just knew it would work well with that jacket and so many other things in my closet! It’s a lovely rose gold color and is lightweight enough for our warmer Louisiana winter weather. I adore sparkle! Give me all the sparkle!”
AMY of Amy's Creative Pursuits
“Since Christmas will be spent in the comfort of our home this year, I decided to create a comfy casual yet sparkly outfit at the same time. I paired comfy jeans with a sequined tank and then I added even more sparkle and shine with jewelry and fun gold sandals.”
SUZANNE of Ask Suzanne Bell
“This holiday, our activities may look different than seasons past, but we cannot give up and let the Covid steal our sparkle. These days, running errands, baking, picking up take-out, or binge-watching classic holiday movies on the couch are opportunities to swap out the yoga pants for something more festive in order to feel a bit more put together, and in the spirit of the holiday season. By swapping out a plain white tee for this thrifted sequin rocker tee and velvet duster, I felt a whole new level of festiveness.”
MICHELE of @seechele_styles
“My Sequined top is thrifted, the camo joggers are from Walmart and my sneakers are from SHEIN. It’s a party on the top, and casual on the bottom, showing you can mix it up.”
NANCY of Nancy's Fashion Style
“I’ve been looking for a perfect gold sequin top for months now but can’t find it! So annoying! However….I do have this gorgeous rose gold shiny metallic kind a skirt. Very glowy and perfect for the holidays with a gorgeous black blouse and black heels. But for now I am wearing it for these cold days before!”
NINA of Sharing a Journey
“It’s that time of year when glitter and glitz, sequins and bows can and should be worn daily! Hop over to lift your spirits and add a little glitter to even the smallest of things.”
SHELBEE of Shelbee on the Edge
“I recently found this sequined mini skirt on a thrifting adventure for something sparkly for another style challenge. I ended up wearing something different for that one so I was excited for this style theme to wear the skirt. I added my floral sequined boots, a leopard print sweater, and my faux fur coat (also thrifted) with statement gold jewelry for my shiny festive outfit in black, tan, and gold. It never hurts to add some sparkle and shine to our days! Happy holidays!”
“Being a dancer sparkle is my thing. Can you imagine a ballroom gown without Rhinestones or sequins? Of course, the sequins also can be worn at day.”
EMMA of Style Splash
“I bought this ‘Golden Girl’ sweater last winter, and when it popped up in an Instagram memory I thought it would be perfect for this theme. It seems I’m not the only one who loves it because I’ve seen several celebrities wearing it on TV in the last week. True to the slogan I had to add more gold; I finally managed to get hold of these gold boots after patiently waiting for months for them to become available on eBay in my size (they sold out very quickly in Zara). I think they were worth the wait!”
JULIE of Fashion Trends and Friends
“Can a girl ever wear or have too many sparkles? I think not! This month’s theme is totally in my wheelhouse! I love and am most attracted to all things sparkly: rhinestones, glitter, shimmery threads and material, metallics, and the more sequins the merrier! I know that December is typically the month to shine but why not all year long? Since we’re staying home more than ever and wearing more leisure wear than perhaps we have in the past, I’m really excited that current trends are incorporating sparkles into leisure wear! Being fancy and sparkly brings me great joy even if I’m only sitting on Zoom all day! If over the top sparkle isn’t your thing, it can be super easy to just have a touch sparkle! Shine on Friends!”
