Is it too early to start thinking about New Years Eve already? Wait, hear my out. This year we decided to do New Years in Mexico, so all the holidays leading up to it are being a bit ignored. Halloween – nope, we turned the lights off. Thanksgiving – nah, I cook Thanksgiving ahead of time for my blog so I’m not craving it when the actual day comes. Christmas – sorry, we are paying to go to Mexico a few days after Christmas so that holiday is being swept under the rug. Now…doesn’t it make sense that I’m already getting excited about New Years Eve??
But I get it, you may be on excitedfortheholiday train. Like most people. So I’ll slow my roll just a little bit and talk about what’s ahead in the next two months…PARTIES! Work parties, friendsgivings, secret santas, parties with close family, parties with someone else’s family, and then parties everywhere in between. And that means it’s time to make a statement with your look. Whenever I want to feel my absolute best, I always turn to Express for a unique look that fits amazing and makes me feel beautiful. I’ve talked about how much I love Express when it comes to their jeans and every day outfits, but Express has some of the cutest looks for parties and special events that will make you feel your confident when you walk in the room!
Right now at Express, they are stocked with some of my favorites trends of the season – velvet and sequins. Isn’t it funny how trends always come back around? I wore velvet and sequins when I was younger and now those trends are popping back up everywhere. This blush sequin cami has a criss-cross strap on the back that shows off a little skin without the front dipping too low, so you’re not constantly pulling the straps up throughout the night. And they also have other ways to shimmer in your look – like in this sequin boyfriend blazer, or this sequin mini skirt, or you can turn heads in this one shoulder sequin dress! I think I love sequins so much because I swear that these sequins made my skin glow. And you know how obsessed I am with glowing, right!?
Dazzle in Sequins
And even though the sequins are amazing, the best part of this look that I know I’ll be able to wear time and time again is this velvet boyfriend blazer. I love wearing skirts around the holidays like this faux leather asymmetrical skirt and pairing it with some tights if it’s too chilly, but this velvet boyfriend blazer is prepared to keep you cozy and warm no matter the temperatures. I snapped these photos in 30 degree weather and the only thing that kept me from completely frozen in my footsteps was this amazing blazer. So if you’re ready to stun in your holiday look but you don’t want to totally freeze, you can find more velvet layers like this velvet cold shoulder dress or these amazing deep red velvet booties to keep you feeling like you’re bundling up while still showing off your shape!
