I love getting dolled up for holiday events but unfortunately I am lacking in holiday parties this year. When my cousin Alicia was having a few gals over to celebrate her birthday I took the opportunity to wear sequins, a flirty skirt and a red lip. There is a really good chance my holidays will be spent wearing sweat pants and pj's so I might as well wear sequins when I can.


  1. I love this outfit - it's so perfectly holiday and relaxed at the same time and that shirt is... well, I want it.
    If you want to dress up your sweats, I'm sure that shirt would do the job! Party on the top!

  2. looove that sweater! the sequins make it so much fun. such a great holiday party look.

  3. That sweater is definitely a party top, love it! It makes a lovely holiday look!

  4. I had no idea Alicia is your cousin! How cool! And geez, what a small world!

    Loving this look Melissa! The black and white option is always a winner in my eyes and it looks great with your blonde hair! Loving the hint of sequins as well and the red lips on you!

  5. Host a party (or multiple parties) and be a dressed-up hostess!

  6. The sequins are so fun for a festive holiday look!

  7. Love how chic and easy this look is. Perfect for one of those after-work events that you need to look great for even when you just want to go home and relax. - Katy

  10. black and white and chic all over. You look so stunning, love. If you get a moment, I'd love to hear your thoughts on my latest. :)


  11. Haha, I love that we both share such a strong affinity for sweats & pj's. When home, it's pretty much all you'll find me in... case in point, I was still in my pj top when you came over yesterday! ;) Obviously, I have no shame! As for your outfit? Beautiful choice, sequins was made for your fabulous skirt!!
