For anyone who thinks you shouldn’t wear sequins to work let me just tell you: When my boss walked into the office this morning and saw me wearing this she stopped in tracks and exclaimed, “CUTE shirt! Really cute! I love it! It looks amazing with the blue pants.”

Other interesting things that happened to me already today?

1. I had very first full-body mole and skin check appointment this morning. As he used the extra-long q-tip to check my scalp for moles and such all I could think was, “My hair! I haven’t taken my pictures yet today!” As if the dry air, my winter hat, and the commute hadn’t already caused it to go super flat.

2. I realized that I own black tights and black dress socks but no black knee-highs. Thank goodness there is a Walgreens on every corner (only slightly exaggerating there) so I could dash in and get some.

3. In the interest of full disclosure, this outfit is a recreation of this one that I pinned. But it follows all my rules for wearing sequins to the office and I haven’t worn this combination yet.  And since sequins totally remind me of the holidays, it works perfectly for today’s Trend Spin Link Up of Holiday Inspired outfits.
