Sparkles! Day 1: Casual

Thanksgiving is officially over which means its time for sparkles, reds, and oh yes, more sparkles! Glitz and glam isn't just for New Years anymore ladies and gents! I have quite a few sequins pieces in my wardrobe, and I will admit they get wear all year round, but I picked up this nude colored tank at Marshalls and just about fell in love. I've thrown on a chunky knit sweater which I have been living in since the winter weather has officially moved in for the season. I completed this comfy casual ensemble some super comfy jeans. I don't know about you all but I have a love/hate relationship with boyfriend jeans -- I absolutely love the look but I have hated the process of finding the perfect fit for me. You don't want to look like you are recycling a pair of ill fitting jeans or that you literally grabbed a pair of your man's pants! I picked these gems up at a store we have here named Plato's Closet -- a place to sell back name brand slightly warn clothes. I've made a ton of money back selling to this store but I rarely find something to purchase. On a 'boyfriend jean hunt' I browsed the racks and found these never worn Gap boyfriend jeans-- tags still attached for only $15! I came home, added some of my own distressing and I am, again, in love!

You may notice the title of this post says 'Day 1' -- I have taken my new fav tank and given you ladies a casual, work and night out look! Make sure to check back for the next 2 days to see my other pairings!

An oxblood jersey dress with an oversized cardigan and boots -- Simple. Fun. Comfy. This has comfy fall weekend attire written all over it!
