DD's Style File - Minty Fresh

I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas and are gearing up for a wonderful New Year!

Outfits around holiday time tend to be of bolder, richer hues, but wearing pastels in winter months can be fabulous! Fall has moved your wardrobe into deeper hues, but pastel shades are cool tones that work just as well when there's snow on the ground (though thankfully, we haven't had much thus far).

In keeping with the spirit of the holidays I added a bit of metallic sheen and sparkle to my leather. Though, I will be the first to admit that I find sparkly flats to be a wardrobe staple that I reach for throughout the year. There is no shame in my personal fashion mantra that "more is more."

Blouse: ASOS - old (very similar)
Sweater: Charming Charlie
Skirt: The Limited
Flats: Zara - old (similar, similar, similar)
Clutch: The Limited - old (similar, super cute option)

Since there was so much shine going on with this outfit, I went super minimal with the jewelry, opting only for studs. I think bringing materials into your pieces that reflect light are great ways to switch things up a bit from your standard wardrobe choices.

I was super excited when I found this sweater in store, after I'd been fawning over this one from J. Crew from a couple seasons ago. And now I kinda want the black one too!

Consider bringing glitter or metallic pieces into your casual NYE outfit, it's a great way to keep with a festive feel while also adding some glam to a sweater and jeans.

After all of the Christmas flurry I hope you all are having a peaceful and relatively relaxing week whether you're back at work or in the house with the kids or visiting guests!
