January in California: Sweater Dress + Glitter Booties

The end of another doozy of a week, so (fri)yay! What with the lack of sunshine and husbandly hugs to make a tough week a bit more digestible, this sparkly ensemble has me feeling a little upbeat. That and carbs, of course. #duh Glitter boots, carbs, maybe some sugar, and most definitely avoiding the news like its the plague aka POTUS woes- about sums up my plans for the weekend. What are y'all upto? :)

In sharp contrast to my current northeast winter situation , I was bare-legged and thrilled about it earlier this very month in sunny California. Holiday season party vibes were still going strong and that's enough to bust out some badass glitter b(eau)ooties, right?! I love how a statement accessory can elevate a simple outfit! The lace underlay to this sweater dress is the chi-est update to a classic black sweater dress, and my favorite blush pink faux fur vest (last styled here, here and here.. hello, versatility!) makes for the perfect cozy topper. With February soon approaching, some pink and glitter are definitely in order, wouldn't you say? If you're a sucker for cliches too, that is. ;)

Thank you for reading and have a great weekend!
