It's a Sequined Holiday Outfit Kind of Day

One of my favorite fashion trends of late has been the addition of small details on otherwise standard basic pieces. I love that I can throw on jeans, flats, and a classic black blouse, but have the outfit be so much more than that. I picked this specific top up at Nordstrom Rack, and I love the sequined cuff & collar. The shoes are a recent buy - an addition to my love of brown & black together. 

I wore this to a family friend's house for a holiday dinner at White Elephant gift exchange. I got a book about Portlandia, some edible larva called Larvettes (ew), and cupcake-flavored floss. It was a really fun night and right before leaving, I asked my mom to snap a few pics of my outfit.

I'll be showing you a few other holiday looks as the days go on β€” hope you're okay with a quick break from work clothes, as I haven't been at work much lately, and when I have, it has been super casual.
