Everyone who knows me also knows that I live by the motto: “Glitter makes everything better!”  It’s just true!  If it sparkles, it’s automatically fabulous, right?  So, with the holidays right around the corner, I’ve been thinking about what to wear and looking for ways to create a festive “subtly sparkly” look!  Despite how much I might gravitate to every single sequined and shiny piece I see, I don’t want to make the mistake of looking like a human disco ball.  So, instead I looked for a few fun metallic pieces I can wear with just about any outfit to add a little holiday sparkle without going over the top.

Want to go Sparkle Chic for the holidays too?  Here’s a quick and easy formula so you can get the look!

Your favorite dress + a wrap/jacket/cardigan + sparkly earrings and necklace + glittery flats = Instant Holiday Glam!

When I started planning a holiday look for my son’s school concert, I wanted something that was festive but not super-formal.  I want to look put together and stylish, but I’m also going to be surrounded by a bunch of adorable kiddos I want to hug all over.  So, to create my outfit, I took a really feminine dress and balanced it out by pairing it with my absolute favorite leather jacket {the one I literally plan to wear until it gets holes in it}.  It’s a fun mix of princess and rock star, don’t you think?  Then, I added the best part…time to shine!

First, I put on this gorgeous necklace I found at Sears.  I like how the contrast of the dark metal paired with the rhinestones gives off the same princess/rocker vibe as the clothing pieces themselves.

Then, I added these earrings.  Aren’t they gorgeous?  They are my absolute all-time favorite pair of earrings right now.  Why?  I’m so glad you asked.  First, I love that they don’t dangle.  You know I love statement earrings sometimes, but remember, I’m going for subtle sparkle; I don’t need to look like I’m attending a royal function.  These are just the right size to catch the light and look great without being totally formal.  In fact, they’re small enough that I can {and will} wear them paired with jeans and a nice top when I go to the grocery store, just for fun.  Second, I love the shape!  They’re little flowers, which is so different than the circles and squares you typically see.  Third, these have Swarovski elements {oooooooh!}.  Enough said.  And finally, they were $10.  Yep.  $10 at Sears.  On sale for $6.  And I had $5 worth of rewards on my Shop Your Way card.  I win.  Beautiful sparkly flower earrings for a dollar.  I got the look for less!

Finally, I added something we all know I can’t resist.  Glittery shoes.  When I walked by the shoe section, there was an end cap display with these flats.  Naturally, I walked over for a closer look.  I also may have drooled a little.  We all know flats are much more comfortable than heels especially when you’re on your feet for hours at holiday events, and these sparkle!  Then I saw that they were on sale and hubby, who was with me, knew it was a done deal.  I mean, really.  Who could leave these on the shelf?

I’m loving the completed look; a fun balance between fancy and casual, and as always, sparkle is making it even better!

What do you think?  Would you wear this combo?  The great news is that fun sparkly accessories are something you can wear and re-wear with any outfit you want.

You can go more formal by trading the leather jacket for a wrap or foregoing it altogether.

You can make a more casual outfit look dressy enough for a holiday event.

You can sparkle at any old time you want, whether you’re going shopping, volunteering at school, attending a business trip, or meeting a friend for coffee.  See?  These shoes go with everything!


Seriously, friends.  Sparkle and Shine makes everything better, especially for the holidays.  So what are you waiting for?  Break out that bling!  I’d love to see photos of your favorite holiday outfit!

  1. I love the jacket, and I love that you made the dress a little more casual but that you can easily glam it up! It would make for a cute holiday party dress!

  2. Love the outfit… and especially the shoes… I am a big shoe fanatic. I used to shop lots at Sears when I lived in Canada but have not found any sears around where I live here… except for Sears with only furniture.
