Sparkle for the New Year!

It's New Year's Eve and you know what that means: time to get your sparkle on! In my last post, I mentioned the impracticality of sequin dresses...but I never said anything about sequin tops! While a sequin top isn't exactly something that you might throw on everyday, it can be dressed down or up. Because of this, it's not a bad investment and gives a person just enough sparkle without going overboard! In this featured look, I am wearing my sequin top from Gap with dark jeans, so the look is a bit dressy but still simultaneously casual. (In case you really want a dress, the "crazy stripe" pattern of this top does come in a dress version too!)

I wore this top out to a pre-New Year's Eve luncheon yesterday and it definitely received a lot of compliments from ladies, both young and old. Maybe that just goes to show that sparkly sequin tops are not only versatile for different occasions but also for different age groups! This sparkle top is also something that is very budget friendly. I went to Gap specifically to look for it and it just happened to be marked 50% off with an extra 30% off on top of that, which brought the top to a very reasonable $35.

I would have worn this top on New Year's Eve, but I've decided to stay in this year. (Truth be told, I stay in most years!) Nothing is better than ringing in the New Year with Champagne, fondue, my husband and my dog! The added comfort of being in pajamas just sweetens the deal! Now if someone would only make sequin pajamas so I could be comfy and fancy simultaneously, I'd be all set!

  1. I looooooove this top! I would be ordering it immediately if it would fit! haha!! You look fab! We just did pizza and sparkling juice/champs this year with some friends, and it was honestly so nice to be home. Happy New Year!!

  2. I LOVE this too! It's definitely more practical than a sequined dress - I could see myself wearing this on date night. Love love love it paired with the leopard. Gorgeous girl! XO- Kim
