What I Wore: Glitz at the Office

When the winter weather becomes warmer, I like to put together a look with a splash of bright color and glitz. Since it’s been unusually warm these days, I started to crave pieces that had glitz and shine. 

As I dug through the closet,  I uncovered some of my favorite Goodwill finds that stood out against the regular workday crowd on the metro. This J. Crew white and black polka-dot and sequin top came out of my spring wardrobe stash. This top is comfy, stretchy, and always turns heads (in a good way) around my office. At first, I wanted to pair it with a black skirt for an all-black classic look. However, I was still itching for a little bit of more flair.

I decided to pair it with this electric red pencil skirt from H&M that I purchased on a recent shopping trip at Goodwill in Gaithersburg, MD.

Red and black is a color combination that’s timeless and classic. It harkens back to pin-up rockabilly fashion and is both sassy and sophisticated. The black always functions as a nice solid base against the electric, eye-catching red.

To really bring this look together, I decided to accessorize my ensemble with this snake necklace. This piece is one of my all-time favorite Goodwill finds; every time I wear it, I get at least 2-3 compliments. I’m always proud to tell fans that I scored it for under $10 at Goodwill!

My outfit consisted of:

Outfit total (Goodwill items): Under $25! Yassss!

Talk about a steal! This look would have originally been $100+! 

How do you like to add glitz to your looks?
