Now that Christmas is only a WEEK away (how did that happen?!) I am starting to think about what I am going to wear for Christmas Eve to church and my Christmas outfit. What a better excuse to wear a little sparkle than at Christmastime! Pairing this sequined shirt with a pleated skirt makes for the perfect Christmas outfit. It is such a cute ensemble, plus everything can be remixed into other outfits. Can you tell I like items that have a lot of bang for their buck?! (Remember how I wore this pleated skirt here in the summer?). The silhouette is so flattering and the extra bling for winter is perfect.
My skirt and shirt are old, but I found some really similar options below.

Date night is highly coveted in our house. While official dates aren’t consistent, they are an eagerly anticipated break from the chaos that is three children. So you can imagine that when this special night comes around, I want to look my best! I mean we are to the point where my husband compliments me every time I wear makeup, which isn’t a lot #momlife #sorryhunny. I am not one for lipgloss or lipstick (I drink and eat too much which smudges or fades it). I am no makeup guru, but I recently discovered how much I could elevate my look by adding a little lip color. But what does one do when lipstick just isn’t a good fit?
Enter Lipsense by SeneGence. I was sent a sample by my friend Tori and while I was hesitant (lips aren’t my thing!), I was interested to try it out. Lipsense’s claim to fame is that the color lasts 18 hours and won’t smudge, budge, or kiss off. Let me tell you- with no exaggeration, this stuff LASTS and the claims are true! From getting ready, to kissing the kids on our way out, to a glass of wine and through dinner, I was so impressed! The color stayed on my lips and looked great. My husband couldn’t stop complimenting me! The color was very flattering and I felt great!

If Lipsense is something you’ve been on the fence about trying or even are just hearing about it for the first time, contact Tori! She is so sweet and fun and can help match you to your perfect color. Lipsense comes in 36 different colors and 10 glosses. And you can mix and match colors to make your own custom creation! So cool, right?! (I am wearing “Luv it”)
Do you ever have an item of clothing that you’ve been wanting forever, but you weren’t able to find “the one?” Well, that is the story with this pleated skirt. I feel like I have been looking for one for the longest time and finally, finallyyyy I found it. AND it happens to be part of the #nsale. Nordstrom, how I love you so. (There are some sizes still available, scroll to the bottom for direct links!) It feels like kittens are caressing my legs and angels sing when I wear it. Too much? Maybe a slight exaggeration. Only slight. ANYWAY, this skirt is perfect, so flattering and very versatile, and I am so glad I got it!
