Tinsel Time!

When I was a child, my family would always get the most beautiful Christmas tree and, on a few occasions, the finishing touch to decorating the tree was draping silver tinsel on the branches. As a child, I thought this looked pretty, especially with the multi-colored lights reflecting off the tinsel. Gradually, I came to find this tradition to be a little gaudy and, I suppose, trends also change. Now, as an adult, I guess you could say that I'm back to loving tinsel, albeit this time it's in the form of a colorful peplum top! This peplum top, which is another piece that I scored from the Halogen x Atlantic Pacific Collection, is the perfect top for the holidays, be it for a Christmas party or for New Year's Eve!

I wore this tinsel top out for a casual lunch date with my husband (he said I was overdressed for the occasion, but I'm practically always overdressed!), so I decided to go with a more casual take on the look with a pair of skinny jeans and these pink flats. If I were to attend a party or something more formal, I think some black velvet pants might also look amazing with the top. For those of you who want an even dressier look, this tinsel fabric also comes in a dress, which is equally stunning and saves you from going through the effort of figuring out what to wear as a bottom! As you can see, I'm head over heels in love with this fabric, perhaps so much so that I just might reconsider putting tinsel on the tree this year, although maybe it's better on a top than a tree!

  2. Katie, what a super fun top! I love it and I love that you went casual on the bottom with skinny jeans. I had to laugh that you are always over dressed. Story of my life, too! Thanks for linking up. I hope your holidays are wonderful!


  3. That is such a fun top! I can imagine you'd have lots of people asking to touch it though, haha! I would love something like this but it's too delicate for life with the kids I think! Shame :( Looks so good on you with the jeans! :)
