The Fringe Off: Styling Metallics

The Fringe Off Collaboration Antique Gold Sequined Skirt Green Henley and Lace Up Flats

Happy Christmas Eve and welcome to another The Fringe Off collaboration post! This time we're each styling metallics in different ways. I feel like metallic clothes and accessories are always in style around the holidays (although I wish more people wore them throughout winter since those months can be so drab.) I figured it would be a fun challenge to style this festive sequined skirt for a more casual day. Also this is probably the only metallic item available to me right now since most of my wardrobe is in a storage unit. #sad

To make this skirt more appropriate for a day of shopping, present-wrapping, and wedding photographer research, I styled it with a very casual green ribbed t-shirt, my faux leather jacket, and a pair of black lace up flats from Modcloth. As far as I know nobody even looked twice at me while I wandered around Target for a ridiculously long amount of time.

I hope you all have a wonderful holiday weekend if you're celebrating and a great weekend otherwise. I feel like I'm so behind on your blogs and lives and I'm so sorry. Right now I'm up north celebrating with family (after a long drive) and am looking forward to fun times with lots of delicious food. Tell me what you're up to so I can live vicariously through you!

Thanks again for stopping by and taking the time to read this little blog - especially those of you who've been around for years. Please be sure to check out all the other Fringe Off bloggers' metallic-inspired outfits for some festive outfit inspiration! (You can find the links under the image below.) Everyone is so festive in their layers and sparkly pieces.

Merry Christmas!!

Outfit: Blue Tights, Maroon Skirt, Leather Jacket, and Leopard Flats

Jo Totes Abby Leather Jacket Maroon Skater Skirt Blue Tights Leopard Flats from Target

I wear this skirt a lot. 

It's the perfect skater skirt length, a slightly heavy material so it doesn't blow up in the wind too easily, and an extremely versatile maroon color. I styled it in my last outfit post too, but I hope you don't mind! 

I spent a good amount of the weekend sorting through and editing my pictures from my trip to Europe and picked out a few of this outfit I wore in Bruges. I loved the way the blue tights and maroon skirt photographed together, especially when paired with my leopard print flats from Target! I topped everything off with my faux leather jacket which is on top of a gray mock turtleneck shirt that you can barely see here. It was too cold to walk around jacket-less!

My Jo Totes bag here, the Abby model in black, was purchased new for the trip and was the absolute perfect size for traveling Europe. I needed something not too big to be burdensome while wandering around but that could still fit the essentials. I fit my camera in there with a zoom lens, an extra 50mm fixed lens, my phone, our passports, extra camera cards, the pocket wi-fi, many cords, and two battery bricks to charge stuff. Not too bad!

So how is your December going so far? I'm still kind of in shock that it is, in fact, December at all. I'm somewhat ready for Christmas festivities but have been mostly preoccupied with wedding research. My venue is all booked so we can officially start finding and booking other vendors. Exciting! And stressful. Other than that, not a whole lot is up. 

I apologize for the slowdown in posting the past few months. I hope to get back to a regular schedule once we find a new place to live again! Thanks for sticking around if you're reading this!

Happy Sunday!
