There are a few items in my closet that never fail to make me feel polished (even when my hair is unbrushed and slept-in) – and this simple black blazer is one of them. With a slightly longer “boyfriend” cut and silky smooth fabric, it’s a go-to for everything – from presentations at work to weekend shopping excursions. Paired with dark denim and an intricately beaded Parker top, this outfit falls somewhere between urban and party-ready. But for a date night or dinner with friends, it’s definitely the style I gravitate towards: the top’s sparkle elevates the look of a classic denim + blazer combo, and the neon pumps offer an unexpectedly bold pop of color.

Aaaand, guess what? It’s Friday! (Thank. God.) Time to break out those beaded tops and bold pumps!

Don’t you love sweater weather? This cream pullover has beading that runs down the front for subtle sparkle. With faux leather leggings, platform pumps and a striped trench – this outfit is great for dinner and drinks (yeah, wearing a chunky sweater to a bar is acceptable… it’s cold here, guys!). Since I always feel it’s necessary to add more sparkle (the sweater’s subtle beading wasn’t enough…), I also carried a gold glitter clutch and wore a J.Crew crystal necklace.

I love how festive and seasonally-appropriate this outfit feels, yet it’s simple and unfussy. This black and ivory dress from the LulaKate ready-to-wear collection is a great alternative to the standard LBD – and definitely the kind of piece you’ll turn to frequently during this party-packed holiday season. I cinched it at the waist with a skinny belt and topped it with some sparkle: a sequined cardigan and grey crystal necklace. Black pumps and semi-sheer tights lengthen the legs and make this outfit perfectly fitting for those office parties and family gatherings.

I hope everyone had a great weekend. More outfit posts and a DIY project are on the docket this week, so visit again soon!
