Sequin Leggings

SWEATER: TJ Maxx (similar here and here, love this) | SEQUIN LEGGINGS: Viva La Jewels (would not recommend) | SHOES: Payless (similar) | PURSE: Michael Kors (similar) | FUR POMPOM: Nordstrom (similar) | EARRINGS: Charming Charlie (similar here and here)

I wore this outfit on Christmas Day!  It was super comfortable and was a little dressy but not too over the top for a day of running around seeing all our family members.  I had plans of wearing these leggings many more times this season.  With a cute black peplum top for New Years Eve and a light pink shirt near Valentine's Day, but I am sad to say these were very bad quality leggings.  Before lunch was over I had huge spots between my legs that had no sequins left.  I am not sure if you just need a thigh gap to wear them or if these were made poorly.  Another thing you need to know before you purchase a pair of your own, is be prepared to have your legs stuck together all day.  The sequins catch on each other!  I really hope to find a pair that hold up better because they are so fun and cute.

I wish these pictures showed the detailing on my sweater a little better.  It has small gold studs surrounding the neckline.  It is the perfect detail to compliment the leggings.  The sweater also has an over sized fit without being too bagging, which is great for a smaller frame.  Lastly, my new purse was an outlet mall score and my Christmas present from C!  This is seriously the first name brand purse I've owned.  I am a little over the moon, like a little kid in a candy shop!  It isn't anything fancy, we got it on super sale but it feels so nice.  Not like all the cheapy purses I own.  I still doubt you will see me with a closet full of expensive purses, though.  I like my money too much!

We are back in snow covered North Dakota now.  It was so great getting to see family and friends, but man it felt like work being home.  I Christmas shopped every day leading up to Christmas, then once Christmas hit, we had a family event to go to every day until we left.  I did get to hit up Santa's Wonderland (a Texas must see) and fit in a night of driving around looking at Christmas lights.  It made my little Christmas obsessed heart happy.  Luckily this occurred before C got into town.  He isn't as Christmas obsessed as me!  I also got to see all my girlfriends who still live in town which was such a joy.  I can't wait to visit again, but I am praying that God leads me to make new friends here and make North Dakota more like home.

How have y'all adjusted to moving to a new town and making new friends?  Also, have you found an awesome pair of sequin leggings?  If so, do share please!!  


  1. Wow, the glittery pants are awesome, and look great with the dark-colored mules. The little fur pompom is a nice touch too! Happy New Year!

  2. Love those pants, I wish I could find a pair that looked as good as these do on you! Beautiful look and Happy New Year! Would love to see you at tomorrow's linkup!

  3. The sequin leggings look great. Sad to hear they don't hold up too well. I got a pair a while ago at H&M and they've been pretty good. I think they had sequin pants for the holidays.
