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.

    Knee highs, as far as I’m concerned, are the greatest hosiery invention of all time. Whenever I wear flats I always wear nude knee highs, and it’s completely solved my previous blisters-on-my-Achilles-because-flats-are-painful problem. Very cute top as well! Perfect for this time of year!
