long time followers may know that i really love sequins (see here, here, here and here), and i love wearing sequins all year round and at any time of year—not just saving them for special occasions or the holidays. about a month ago, i was in the office and some of my co-workers talked to me about a campaign they were doing centered around 30 days of gifts; each day they’d reveal a gift on instagram, something you’d want to get, give, or keep for yourself. influencers, friends of the brand, and some employees were asked to participate and our editorial director wanted me to model this sequin skirt…right up my alley. i was asked to style the skirt how i would really wear it, and for me that’s always with a masculine/feminine mix in mind. to balance the flirtiness of the skirt, i paired it with a chunky sweater and oversized denim jacket, then added a sky high bootie. this look would work for holiday weekend brunch or even a festive gathering at home when you don’t want to look like you tried too hard, but still want to get in the spirit.

check out the whole series here and on instagram at the hashtag #givekeepget.

*this post isn’t sponsored; just a cool opportunity i got to be a part of through my day job. i didn’t keep this skirt but did buy the navy one.
