So raise your hand if you watch “Real Housewives of Atlanta?” The series is airing right now, so lately I have been in the mood to twirl on! If you watch the show, you know Kenya gets her twirl on, and this holiday skirt is ideal for twirling away!

I am always wondering how to rewear holiday attire after the holidays. This skirt was my favorite holiday piece this season. I wore it to a holiday party at a friends house, the JLSJ Sustainer holiday party, and during the day on Christmas Eve. In order to keep on twirling, I decided to find a way to rewear my holiday skirt after the last of the Christmas tinsel was thrown in the trash bin.

This moto jacket from Bay Area brand Tart Collections is my current favorite on days when the temperatures hover in the high 50’s and 60’s. I decided it would be fun to pair it with my sparkling green holiday skirt.

In December, I met my friend Laura from Have Need Want for brunch in Capitola. I decided to wear this outfit after brunch for a brief stroll downtown where we visited a cute interior design shop that was sadly closing down. Since we are bloggers, we had to stop and snap pictures of our outfits!

Laura suggested I twirl, so I decided to channel Kenya and get my twirl on! Since she is “Gone with the Wind Fabulous,” I straightened up my posture, ignored the fact that we were on a busy street, and I twirled! Oh my, it was so much fun! I hope you enjoy these twirling photos. The skirt does twirl well!

So if you have a holiday skirt, dress, or pants, top it off with a casual shirt and edgy jacket. It will make a special occasion piece ready to wear during the day, everyday! If you have a sparkling holiday top, simply pair it with jeans and boots; and voila! Instant daytime outfit. Love that!

Wondering how to wear a sequin jacket during the day for a casual event? Or maybe you have a casual party on New Years Eve and are wondering how to style a sequin jacket for New Years Eve? Well I struggled with these questions too!

I have an all-black outfit I planned to wear with this sequin jacket from Tart Collections. When the jacket arrived, I quickly went to my closet to try the outfit on together, only to find my weight gain sized me out of my black outfit! The shame! So then I decided I had to find a way to style this sequin jacket for my upcoming holiday parties. Plus, I needed a casual New Years Eve outfit idea, so this sequin jacket would be perfect!

Pairing this Tart Collections sequin jacket with loose, distressed, straight-leg jeans worked out perfectly! I love the edgy-glam look for a casual New Years Eve party, or any daytime activity. This is a great girl’s brunch outfit idea too! For New Years Eve, I plan to wear this exact outfit but I will switch out the daytime handbag for this cute little number by Valentino. You can see it styled here.

Tart Collections has so many fabulous and festive pieces for New Years; as well as everyday wear. You can’t go wrong with a Tart Collection piece! Plus, they are based right here in the San Francisco Bay Area, so their style is exactly how we dress. Love that!

This is a comfortable yet chic outfit which is perfect for any New Years Eve house party. It also works well for any semi-formal New Years Eve party. I originally wore this outfit to the Junior League of San Jose Sustainer holiday party. It was perfect! The skirt is a sparkling green and gold, glitter fabric. I apologize that you cannot see the glitter in this photo. It’s an iPhone photo taken at night.
