Silver Sequin Turtleneck Sweater (Sold Out) (More Sequin Tops) / Similar TopStriped Tuxedo Jeans (Exact Jeans Sold Out in Silver Stipe) / Similar Red Sandals / Charlotte Max Monogrammed Clutch (more metallic clutches)

Happy December 1st!  I hope you enjoyed my Holiday Home Tour yesterday.  It was fun to do and my friends are so talented!  I received a lot of emails and messages about this top (sold out, similar top) others to wear with jeans to a holiday party, I thought I’d just do a quick post for everyone.

I did one similar last year and it was one of the most popular posts of the month!  Although I love to dress up and wearing a dress is my default, I do love a great top and jeans.  When I saw this sequin trimmed turtleneck from Eliza J, I had to have it.  I’ll make any excuse to wear these tuxedo stripe jeans and this top made them the perfect way to wear jeans to a holiday party.

I think the key to wearing jeans to a holiday party is to amp it all up a bit.  I love these boot cut cropped jeans. (I know they don’t look “cropped” on me but I’m 5′ 2″.  The double grosgrain ribbon trim gives them a “tuxedo” feel and the bottom ribbon is metallic silver.  These jeans are so versatile.  I’ve worn them with a blue chiffon top (would be holiday-appropriate too), a one-shoulder white top (sold out, similar here) and just a classic button-down.  These jeans come in other colors, too!

This classic turtleneck is elevated with the gorgeous silver sequins and the luxe yarn.  This sweater is one of the coziest sweaters I own right now.  I’ve paired them with my favorite sparkling clutch from my friend Michelle, founder of Charlotte Max, and a pair of red heels.  These are not the most comfortable shoes and are sold out so I’ve linked a pair that I know is comfortable because I own them in two colors!

Below you’ll find other holiday tops to wear with jeans.  Let me know your favorite!

Happy Friday!

Nordstrom Beauty Discovery: Cle de Peau Concealer

It’s easy to get in a routine when it comes to make up.  My need for a new concealer lead me back to an old favorite and the discovery of some new products from Cle de Peau.

For years, I used the cult favorite concealer from this fabulous brand. I discovered it as a new mom with tired eyes and dark circles. It was my go -o for years. Now as a mom of teenagers, I feel like those dark circles have returned!
