Sparkle and Shine Stylish Monday

collage all the sparkles

December is the perfect month to sparkle and shine. So of course we couldn’t come up with a better theme for Stylish Monday. I’ve never been into glitter that much but …. the last few months I’ve been looking for a perfect sequin top. Because I seem to suddenly like a bit of sparkle and shine. But you cannot find it if it is not somewhere around December. So I should be able to find something beautiful one of these days now. And I will not wear it for Christmas! Because I don’t like the obvious….

But I do have another glimmer for you! This rose gold satin skirt! Cozy and warm with a thick cable sweater, ideal for December! I could wear it with a black blouse and heels for the holidays, but I have another shiny item in my head! Let’s take a look at how my lovely fashion blogger friends shine and sparkle.

Stylish Monday is created out of a Facebook group of Life and Style bloggers. Every month we interpret a theme in our own way, fashionable wise of course. It’s a fun way to be creative with clothing and accessories. And to see how other women interpret a theme chosen by someone else. It is a fabulous fashionable way to create something beautiful with other bloggers. 

See my friends all glittery and shining!

First our new fashion friend. Welcome Amy!

Amy of Amy’s Creative Pursuits sparkle and shine

Since Christmas will be spent in the comfort of our home this year I decided to create a comfy casual yet sparkly outfit at the same time.  I paired comfy jeans with a sequined tank and then I added even more sparkle and shine with jewelry and fun gold sandals.

Andy of Pearls and Pantsuits glitter top outfit

I’ve had this jacket for a while and just love the subtle pop of sparkle on the sleeves, so when I found the fully sequined top at TJMaxx I just knew it would work well with that jacket and so many other things in my closet! It’s a lovely rose gold color and is lightweight enough for our warmer Louisiana winter weather. I adore sparkle! Give me all the sparkle!

I recently found this sequined mini skirt on a thrifting adventure for something sparkly for another style challenge. I ended up wearing something different for that one so I was excited for this style theme to wear the skirt. I added my floral sequined boots, a leopard print sweater, and my faux fur coat (also thrifted) with statement gold jewelry for my shiny festive outfit in black, tan, and gold. It never hurts to add some sparkle and shine to our days! Happy holidays!

This holiday, our activities may look different than seasons past, but we cannot give up and let the Covid steal our sparkle.  These days, running errands, baking, picking up take-out, or binge-watching classic holiday movies on the couch are opportunities to swap out the yoga pants for something more festive in order to feel a bit more put together, and in the spirit of the holiday season. By swapping out a plain white tee for this thrifted sequin rocker tee and velvet duster, I felt a whole new level of festiveness.

Being a dancer sparkle is my thing. Can you imagine a ballroom gown without Rhinestones or sequins? Of course, the sequins also can be worn at day. 

Julie of Fashion Trends and Friendsglitter joggers

Can a girl ever wear or have too many sparkles?  I think not!  This month’s theme is totally in my wheelhouse!  I love and am most attracted to all things sparkly:  rhinestones, glitter, shimmery threads and material, metallics, and the more sequins the merrier!  I know that December is typically the month to shine but why not all year long?  Since we’re staying home more than ever and wearing more leisure wear than perhaps we have in the past, I’m really excited that current trends are incorporating sparkles into leisure wear!  Being fancy and sparkly brings me great joy even if I’m only sitting on Zoom all day!  If over the top sparkle isn’t your thing, it can be super easy to just have a touch sparkle!  Shine on Friends!

Ada of Elegance and Mommyhoodfashion blogger at her Christmas decorated house

This has been the year of rediscovering my closet – COVID and all – so I am wearing an outfit featuring pieces I have owned, like this fitted cropped beaded+sequined hot pink tank top styled beautifully with a maroon shimmery tweed skirt (love that asymmetrical ruffle). I went for a monochrome look by pairing it with these cranberry studded suede booties. Between the top, my rhinestone hair clip, my jewelry and my gorgeous gold tree I got a lot of sparkle in this look. Tis the season to Shimmer and SPARKLE!!

Michele of seechele_stylescamo and glitter outfit 

My Sequined top is thrifted, the camo joggers are from Walmart and my sneakers are from SHEIN.  It’s a party on the top, and casual on the bottom, showing you can mix it up.

Nina of Sharing a Journeysparkle and shine

 It’s that time of year when glitter and glitz, sequins and bows can and should be worn daily!  Hop over to lift your spirits and add a little glitter to even the smallest of things.

    I really love the look of a satin slip style skirt with a cozy sweater, Nancy! This is the perfect holiday outfit. Especially this year because it looks so cozy, too! Great styling as always, my friend!

    How funny, I was never much of a fan of sparkle either, until a couple of years ago. I’m still buying and wearing sparkle very sparingly, though. Not liking the obvious very much either, I’d rather wear sparkle at another time of year 🙂 That said, I found a vintage dress with some Lurex in it at the charity shop last week, so perhaps I’ll wear that one for Christmas! Anyway, I am swooning over your gold rose skirt, and I think it looks perfect with the cream chunky jumper! xxx

      Oh I love lurex! I didn’t like it either before. I love it when our fashion style evolves and changes!
