How To Look Instantly Festive For The Holidays

When planning my outfit for any evening outing this time of year, I immediately turn to sequins. They add that instant festive quality so that I don’t have to try hard with the rest of my outfit. (Yes, as a fashion blogger, I am allowed to be lazy with my styling sometimes.) So, when I wished that sequins could be my go-to during the day, I thought, why not? Sequins immediately dress up an outfit, so to keep them casual, I paired them with some jeans. And not just any jeans, but distressed jeans — the casual-est of them all! A pair of boots in a fall color like burgundy gives the look a more laid-back vibe.

This outfit was perfect for a fall day antiquing outside of L.A. We stopped for apple cider and then for dinner I changed into heels, making the outfit all the more versatile. Sequins, you’ve definitely earned your keep — not that I needed any other reason!
