Sparkle & Shine

If you ask me, there’s no better time to add a dash of sparkle & shine to our wardrobes, and living spaces, than the holiday season.

Glittering lights on the tree are enhanced by sparkly ornaments. Even in warm weather climates a touch of sparkle & shine can fool the eye into believing there might just be a dusting of snow on the trees outside.

I think we can all appreciate the swoon-worthy impact of high fashion embellished with sparkle & shine–so ethereal and fantasy like.

And yet, the simpler touches of this color story are exponentially more wearable for real life.

A sweater, with the lovely detail of this cowl back, looks festive yet cozy.

As does the subtle sheen of fabric in this comfy cardigan–so easy to wear and festive!

I love the idea of mixing sparkle with more casual fashion. It lessens the fancy aspect and makes the look more playful.

Clutches, scarves, belts and shoes are the perfect way to add festive, sparkling accents without overdoing the vibe.

Classic sparkle…

Adding a touch of shine to a room adds instant glamour.

The room becomes more alive as the light reflects off the surfaces.

I like to mix up my look with sparkle & shine: I may choose a DVF clutch and heels one day and a sequin top from Target, with a J Crew necklace and jeans the next.

You can never take yourself too seriously when wearing sparkles and that’s half the fun.

As you continue to enjoy your holiday festivities I wish you an infinite amount of sparkle & shine.

What are your favorite ways to add some shine to life?
