Colorful sequin stripes are in so many stores right now! You may recall seeing a dress like this on the blog recently (here), and today is a shirt version, paired with jeans and a faux fur vest. In a recent bout of sequin inspiration I ordered not one, but three, sequin tops - thinking I would just keep one. But of course I love all three and am having trouble deciding. Which of these first two are liking best so far? See below!

Top: Express, $35
Vest: Calvin Klein/Ross, $35 (similar, similar, similar)
Jeans: Nordstrom, $78
Shoes: Betsey Johnson/Ross, $32 (samesamesamesame)
Earrings: Nordstrom, $19 (similar, similar, similar, similar)
Approx. dates: Shoes and vest are 3 years ago. Jeans and earrings are 1 year ago. Top is new.

‘Tis the season for sequins and I’m all about it! I grabbed this top for a steal ($15) during Cyber Monday and it’s totally something I would’ve worn in college. (Does personal style ever really change?!) The new trend I’m loving this year are these fuzzy jackets. They are SO soft and warm and they look great with everything from leggings and sneakers to a sequin top and jeans!

Jacket: Stitch Fix, $98 (plus, similar, similar, similar, similar)
Top: Express, $15 (similar below)

You might be thinking: “yeah right, Christmas tree shopping,” but we really did buy a tree during/after these pictures! 😂 We get ours from a company that brings trees down from Michigan each year and sets them up in a huge tent. My outfit was a happy accident. I looked down one night while walking the dog and realized that what I haphazardly threw together in the dark was actually pretty cute, and I made a mental note to wear it again sometime. Christmas tree shopping felt like just the right occasion - I love having another idea for this sweater (see below)!

Sweater: J.Crew Factory, $45
Coat: Sporto, old (similar, similar, similar)
Jeans: Levi’s c/o Amazon, $59 (same, same, same)
Boots: Sperry/Shoebuy, $75 (same)
Hat: Kohl’s, $10 (similar, similar)
Approx. dates: Coat, boots, hat are 2 years ago. Jeans, sweater are recent.

Shout-out to my friend Brianna for this outfit idea! She wore it to church a couple weeks ago and I told her I was planning to copy it. ☺️ I seem to be on a mission to wear this cardigan as many ways as possible. I love the idea of wearing it with a dress, and belting it feels so 7 years ago, it’s making me nostalgic and giddy (back in the day, I used to belt EVERYthing!). Without the belt, this look on me had too much volume. I tried the belt over the cardigan at first but it’s too thick, so over the dress was the perfect compromise!

Cardigan: LOFT, $35 (similar, similar, similar)
Dress: Everlane, $98 (fair trade) (similar, similar, similar)
Belt: H&M, $18 (similar, similar)
Boots: Sam Edelman/Amazon, $29 (samesimilar)
Purse: Lauren Conrad/Kohl’s, $40 (similar, similar)
Necklaces: Stella & Dot, old (similar, similar, similar, similar)
Approx. dates: Necklace is 7 years ago. Belt is 5 years ago. Shoes are 1 year ago. Purse, cardigan are recent.
