OOTD :: of glitz, cobalt and visible all over

This week’s theme is borne of the fluctuating weather predicted this week.

What else is new, eh?

We’re to start off in the low 80s then gradually make our way down to the upper 50s by Friday, so if the weatherman is to be believed, I couldn’t go through with Fabulously Furry like I’d intended. Which sucks since I didn’t have time to come up with a thoughtful replacement, what with being busy over the weekend with a company Christmas party (husband’s), a fever of 101 (daughter’s) and last-minute shopping for a birthday present (mom’s).

So, my friends, this week you get a hasty, haphazard hodgepodge of outfits that are all loosely tied together by what I’m calling Gloriously Glam.

Because what can be more glam than sequins and sparkles and bright, shiny things? Recently, I’ve been seduced by the embellished sweatshirt/sweater trend and I kinda went ballistic on purchases. You’ll see most of them showcased this week for sure, but since today is the warmest day, I give you an embellished tank instead.

Story of this tank: I bought its sweater counterpart because I fell in love with both the color (the perfect pink – not too Pepto, not too ballerina) and the neckline (the jewels are super classy). Sadly, I underestimated my boobs again and the medium just wasn’t cutting it. I went to exchange it for a larger size (yes, the brick and mortar store. I know, right?) but they had none in stock, and I was all set to go home and repurchase online when I spied this number. For some reason, this in a medium works well when the sweater in the medium did not, so it promptly came home with me, sweater forgotten.

And because today is Visible Monday, I paired it with a very in-your-face printed pencil skirt and picked up the blue in said skirt with my favorite cardi. I was gonna do a nude pump, but then I read this article on visual grouping and chose the blue pump instead. I mean, why the heck not? It’s Visible Monday!

You know, in retrospect, this week’s theme is quite apropos after all: it is the last week of work before we break for our two-week Christmas festivities. Ah, glorious and glam indeed!
