Happy Holidays!

Hey Guys!! I just wanted to stop by and wish everyone (late) Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! I hope everyone is doing well and and are able to spend the Holidays with your family and loved ones.

I went to a Christmas Party last week with my cousin and it was supposed to be semi formal, so I thought that would be the perfect time to bring out my gold sequin blazer! I purchased this blazer a couple of months ago and have worn it about 4 times, both casual and glammed up. Since it was cold I decided to pair the jacket with some harem pants and a collared shirt. I added a neck tie and....voila! I was called the Janelle Monae the entire night LMBO!!



I wasn't able to get any pics like usual but my cousin snapped a few photos with her camera so I thought I would post them so you guys could get the gist of what I wore.

Let me know if you're feeling this menswear inspired look!

I didn't get a pic of the shoes that night but they were my favorite part! You all know how I feel about shoes :)

Here they are!


Sequin Blazer: Macy's
Harem Pants: Evans
Sheer Button up blouse: Thrift
Neck Tie: Random Ribbon from a jumpsuit
Shoes: Sam Edelman
