Boxing Day Outfit: Casual Sequins

top, skirt, tights: H&M - earrings: gift - boots: Tim's - coat: c/o Kirilove for Vero Moda - scarf: vintage

This is the outfit I wore on boxing day. I still wanted a bit of holiday cheer in my styling, so I went for a comfortable, casual combination featuring this gorgeously sparkly skirt I don't wear nearly enough. I'm wearing almost ALL of my wearable Christmas gifts here, so it's a damn Christmas miracle that all of it sort of goes together... OR DOES IT? I totally think it does. The red tartan pulls it all together with holiday merriment.

The earrings, the navy long sleeve and the Kate Moss for Rimmel London 05 lipstick were all gifts that I couldn't wait to wear (obviously) so wearing them was exactly what I did as soon as I got the chance. You might not know this about me, but I am a bit obsessed with casual cotton long sleeve shirts, so I was stoked to unwrap this one on Christmas eve.

The lipstick is a bit peculiar: I've seen swatches of the 05 on other people looking very pink, but it looks more like a soft, neutral watermelon red on yours truly. The smell and texture are truly amazing btw, so I would probably wear this with glee even if it looked like shit! I'll swatch it for you one of these days and get you some close ups.

Talking about make up: I'm totally obsessing over Sleek's True Color lipsticks and will probably be ordering some within the next few days. I've already decided I'm getting Amped, but for my second shade I'm torn between Papaya Punch, Heartbreaker and Pink Freeze. FIRST WORLD PROBLEMS

And that's a wrap, folks! Let's start getting ready for New Year's eve! I wish we did presents for New Year's as well :( MOAR PRESENTS



  1. Leuke jas, lijkt me ook een hele warme! :)

  2. Gold and tartan together are quite royal! I like the combo :)xx

  3. love this new layout! fresh way to start the new year:) love the outfit as well:)

  4. Wij geven wel pakjes voor nieuwjaar! Wel ja, bij één deel van de familie. Het andere deel was met Kerstmis. Ik vind trouwens de 'Heartbreaker' lippenstift supermooi. O ja, en supermooi rokje! Ik ben al een tijdje naar zo eentje op zoek maar ben tot de conclusie gekomen dat het totaal niet past bij mijn figuur haha.

  5. Superleuke combinatie! Tartan is always a good idea ;-)!

    Dress your life.

  6. Your gold sequined skirt is so fun! I love that you're wearing almost all of your Christmas presents. That plaid scarf is super cute and looks wonderful with the gold skirt.

  7. Super cosy outfit met een KNISPERTJE glitter, echt mooi! De lipstick pakte bij mij ook roziger, wat vreemd! Naja, hij staat je wel super mooi. Die laarzen zijn ook perfect.

  8. Leuke combinatie van de sjaal met de jas!

  9. I think casual sequins are the best kind - and the plaid shirt with the sequins is such a cute combo. Must remember to try that sometime.
