Day 12 of 12 Days of Style – Sequin Sweatshirt

What is 12 Days of Style? From now until Christmas, I’ve been attempting to wear something something fun, trendy or out of the ordinary to get myself out of a style slump! Here is Day 12!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Merry Christmas all! It’s day 12 of my 12 days of style! Do you think I made it out of my style slump?

I’m wearing a sequined sweatshirt that I bought at Target for $20. It’s a size small but I think it’s bigger than I wanted it to be. I hate returning stuff though… Am I the only one?

I’m wearing lace shorts with tights and my favorite black boots. I accessorized with a Betsey Johnson scarf and snowflake earrings. I know it’s not the most festive Christmas outfit I could come up with, but I’m comfortable!

Hope you all have a very Merry CHRISTmas today and get to spend it with your family! Love and hugs to all!

xoxo
