Tonight I’m planning on attending the House of Gemmes Holiday Soiree and wanted to wear something a little bit fun.  So I decided to make sequins office-appropriate!   Okay, maybe this wouldn’t fly in a more conservative office, but by pairing the sequined jacket with a simple turtleneck and a gray skirt it goes from night to day without looking too ridiculous.

Now, if I’ve paired this jacket with a black skirt and a more low-cut top then it would fall into the evening wear category.  But just by toning down what it’s paired with you can extend the items in your wardrobe and make them work for multiple occasions.

I chose to wear simple jewelry for the same reason.  Well, that and I received this necklace as a gift from my friend Kim on Tuesday night and haven’t wanted to take it off since.

P.S.  It was cold and windy in my photo studio today.
