Twofer Tuesday and Merry Christmas Eve!

(exact) // Bracelets-Stella and Dot Eden, ebay // ring-gift



I was really happy with how this outfit came together. I think I just would have changed my tights. An ivory pair would have gone with the more casual feel of the outfit better and complimented the color of the polka dots. The black may be too severe looking? That's one thing I like about taking outfit pics. I can look back and evaluate and learn!

Whenever I am on the fence about getting rid of an item in my closet, I make myself wear it. This sequin tank was potentially on the chopping block. I like my other sequin tank because it is more fitted, easy to layer, and can even be worn as a vest. This one is more of a tunic fit so I wasn't sure about it. 




 I really like it as a 'going out' top though. It's loose without being shapeless. I can always belt it or tuck it in so...I obviously decided to keep it. Wearing something for a day or at least a few hours really helps to evaluate what I like and what I don't like about an item. 

Merry Christmas and I hope everyone has a wonderful day full of happy memories!

  3. Oooh you should totally keep it! I love how it looks layered like that and you're right it looks really good for "going out"

  5. I love your Twofer's. Both outfits are great. I especially love your first one. Now that you mentioned it I'd love to see it with Ivory Tights and you would be bold and daring to do so. But it seriously looks great with black ones. That second outfit would be great for NY Eve. I am glad you kept the sequined top. It suits you.

  6. Thank you so much Ada! The second outfit would have been great for NYE if we had actually gone out! ;-) NYE is the perfect excuse to wear fun sequins!

  7. I am going to use your idea of wearing something that you are thinking of getting rid of. Just looking at something isn't enough sometimes to really decide if you should keep it or not. Great idea!

  8. I hope it works out for you Jami! Trying things on didn't always help me decide, but wearing it for a whole day helps me figure out what I like about it, how it stretches out, or hangs on me! :)
