Blinged up denim outfits are definitely the easiest way for me to put together a festive outfit, as evidenced here by the fact that I wore four of them this week as a part of my festive outfits challenge. The first three were worn to work, while the last one was worn earlier today for a trip to the mall. The outfits are not as bling-y as they would have been if I wore them to a real holiday party vs. work, and also boots/booties were the only footwear option if you are going outside. Looking at all the photos here together, it strikes me that they are all in cool neutrals, with touches in burgundy family, including (which you can't see sadly) my favorite Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey.

The outfits are:

Tuesday 12/13 (#1-#4) - This one was built around the sparkly ruffled BR moto,layered over asymmetric black cashmere Bloomingdale's sweater, with Paige zippered grey skinnies, and silver E&J booties. I was going for a sparkly version of a edgy/rocker denim outfit. The accessories are long chain black/gunmetal necklace, neutral patterned scarf, grey newsboy wool hat and black RM moto satchel. The outerwear was my black TT coat.

Wednesday 12/14 (#5-#6): Here I went for black and sparkly, building the outfit around black Express sweater with leather sequins. I added the AG slit Jodi cropped flare jeans, black jet-stone choker necklace, black Aquatalia booties and black boucle coat with faux fur trim. Little color was added through floppy burgundy wool hat and burgundy Steve Madden satchel.

Friday 12/16 (#7-#8): It was another extremely cold day, so it was necessary to wear the warmest coat I own, my Soia & Kyo wool puffer. The theme was pewter this time, thanks to Kenneth Cole peter foiled sweater and J Crew pewter glass bead & ribbon necklace. The sweater was combined with dark cropped R&S skinnies tucked into charcoal Zinda tall boots. For the outdoors I also wore a matching black with plum faux fur AT hat and gloves, and the same burgundy satchel.

Sunday 12/18 (#9-#10): This was worn for a quick tip to the mall for the final round of present shopping. I went for very simple this time: sparkly leopard studded Karen Millen sweater, dark cropped straight R&S jeans. silver E&J booties. For the outside, I a \dded my silver grey fur trimmed Laundry puffer, cream cashmere hat and the again, the same burgundy Steve Madden satchel.
