Crimson Sparkle


Merry Christmas every one!

I hope you are all enjoying the day surrounded by family and friends. This year is a more low-key Christmas. It's odd not being home (literally). I didn't do my usual decorating or card-making. I'm still making the most of the Holiday and am focusing on what's truly important. True, the decorations, food and gifts all contribute to the jolliness, but Christmas is all about family. I am grateful more than ever for them, because they are what makes it feel like Christmas, nothing else cuts it. I am already looking forward to next Christmas, when we will be able to host our loved ones in our new home. By that time, it will feel like home again. After all, home is where the heart is!

Now, on to the look! I wore my sequin mini skirt with a layered buffalo plaid shirt and red sweater. I know these pieces have been features a lot in December, but I wanted to make the most of my red clothing! This look sort of encapsulated the basics of my December dressing. A lot of red, black, shine and textures! I had added hints of white and pale grey to some of the looks, just to break it up a bit. I didn't over complicate things, and with a few keys pieces, I was able to create a capsule wardrobe for the month. It took a bit of planning initially, but boy was I happy I had plenty of outfit ideas to choose from during the busy Holiday season! Today's outfit would be perfect for Christmas day. It has red, some bling, a cozy factor and it's comfortable enough to sit around the fireplace drinking hot chocolate! It strikes the perfect balance of holiday-cheer and functionality! What would be your ideal Christmas day look?
