Holy Chic: From Day To Night

Holy Chic: From Day To Night

holy chic

Have you ever had a piece in your closet that you love but you just never wear? I hate reading closet clean up posts where they recommend you throw out those pieces because a tiny part of me wants to throw a tantrum and go “Nooooo” as I hold onto it.

That’s what this skirt was to me. I’ve had it for about 3 years now, bought on extreme sale from French Connection (down to $40 from $200). I love it and feel like a sparkly mermaid anytime I wear it but I’ve worn it a total of TWO times. It’s one of those pieces in my closet that I always pause at and go, “Should I wear this today?” and then just burst out, “HAHA NO where am I going, who do I think I am, I’m just going to work!”.

Until I saw this awesome white tee from Letter Clothing and it’s like, it all clicked. I had the tee on and was trying it out with all the bottoms in my closet. It looked fine with jeans, hot with leather pants and then I saw my sequined mermaid skirt and thought, “Hmmm, how about this?”

My main concern with wearing this skirt out was that it would just be too much. Too much shimmer, too much glitter, just too much. But with the addition of a white lettered tee, it totally dressed it down. I wore it to work and to a blogger event afterwards and didn’t feel overdressed or underdressed at either location. I felt perfectly dressed!

It’s just another example of what I spoke about in this post, about shopping your own closet. I recommend doing this every so often. Even better if it’s on a sunny day and you blast some upbeat music and just try on all the items in your closet that you haven’t worn in ages! Maybe mix and match it, play around with it and just have fun! You might find one of those older pieces that you can rework into a current look!

  • I have to be honest, I don’t really understand a lot of the new style trends. But I’ve always been told that I should have come to age in the 60s or 70s so I guess I’m not meant to understand (and seriously, i’m not that old). But I still love how much people are experimenting with their clothes these days. The juxtaposition of sequins and a t-shirt is really daring.

  • That tee is so adorable I have to have it too! Thanks for sharing your stylish post! You absolutely look chic from day to night! Love it!

    I have a sequinned shirt like that. I bought it since the sparkly nature caught my eye but have only worn it a few times in a last few years. I love the look you created and how you paired it with an understated top.

  • What a beautiful look, fun and glam yet still very comfortable looking. I really wanted to see the bottom of the skirt to tell how it styles – maybe I am just being weird! 🙂

    Way to follow your own sense of style, and not betray your taste. Either way, you feel good when you looks good, and darling, ya look great 😍👍🏼😎 Evelyn @PathofPresence

    I love and am glad that you wore it to work. I just bought some rose gold pumps and some “disco ball” pumps. I definitely will be wearing them to work! LOL!

    True , half of our wardrobe is never used and best thing is to give it try once … You did the right thing and it turned out beautiful !!

  • Jhilmil Bhansali

    This blue sequin skirt is just awesome and great that you made its way to work to utilize the wardrobe effectively and get the actual worth of money for the outfits we get.

  • Janelle Dominique Swing

    I love your fashion sense! Turning a simple tee into a gorgeous outfit!

    The tee and skirt combo turned out really great! I’m on a mission to fill my closet with stylish tees. They may look basic, but they look chic when styled right!

  • Nadalie Bardowell

    Your skirt is really cute, almost has a mermaid look to it. I can see why it might require extra planning around to mix and match what to wear with it.

  • Bea | A Cheery Mind

    This Tee definitely was the way to go! These two paired up perfectly together I really love the look you created!

  • I need to shop my own closet often, thank you for reminding me. The skirt and the tee look so good, love the skirt. The sparkle and the shimmer on the skirt look so gorgeous, indeed a keeper.

  • This skirt is everything!! It reminds me of a mermaid’s tail and I NEED it in my life! I have no clue where I’d ever wear it, but just seeing it in my closet would make me happy lol
