Work Appropriate Sequins

Anyone else scheduled to work Christmas Eve and/or New Years Eve this year? I am one of those unfortunate souls. (Pity party for one, here.) To bring a little festivity to the workplace when I’d rather be celebrating with friends and family, I’ve planned a sparkly little outfit that’s still appropriate for work.

Wearing sparkle and sequins in the daytime has become such a big thing this year, and I fully support this trend. But for wearing sequins in the workplace, my biggest concern was still looking office appropriate.

I made sure to keep the rest of the outfit conservative: a classic pencil skirt,ย neutral pumps, and a button down tame the sequins but don’t sacrifice the fun factor.

What is your work schedule like the rest of the year? Are you already on vacation?

    Okay, I am in love with that sweater. I mean, it’s J Crew, so i’m not surprised, but wow. Such a perfect thing. And it’s not tooo flashy to wear to work or anything.

    Oh no, you poor thing having to work on Monday! I have Monday off but instead I’m working Saturday ๐Ÿ™ I’m truly loving this outfit (aside from it mostly being J.Crew), I think you pull of the sequin top beautifully and the colors are light enough that I think it’s still great for work! Have a wonderful Christmas Lauren!
