Holiday season is quickly approaching {can you believe it?!}, so it’s time to whip out all the glitz + glam that’s been hiding in your closet. Or maybe not so hidden, if you’re like me and love to rock a good sparkle number year round.

Express has always been one of my go-to stores for holiday wear. Case in point, last year’s NYE inspiration. But I honestly shocked myself with this matching sequin duo! It’s probably no surprise, but I’m typically not a huge fan of the ‘tight and restrictive’ type clothing. I’m a ‘fit and flare’ kinda girl all the way. But when I saw the delicate detailing of this crop top + pencil skirt, I thought ‘hey, let’s try it!’ The fabric is honestly super soft {not itchy at all} and has a good amount of stretch, so I could totally see myself rocking this look for hours on end and being comfortable.

What may come as a shock, is that this is actually my first ever crop top I’ve styled…gasp. Haha, I know some of you probably have your jaw to the keyboard at this point. But it’s true, and I’ll tell you why. 1. I’m short, with an extremely short torso. Translation, there’s usually no such thing as a ‘crop top’ for me; it’s just a shirt. And while I’ve accepted the fact that I have to get pretty much everything tailored, hemming a shirt just seems crazy. 2. I was raised in an extremely modest home, so growing up I always shied away from ‘revealing’ clothing. Which isn’t a bad thing! Although I have to say, I think this set is not only flattering, but tasteful.
Well done Express!

This is a stunning outfit! All black, lace, sequins! You look amazing Kristin. Enjoy a restful weekend 🙂

What a babe!!

Obsessed with this outfit! I’m going to purchase it, any tips on sizing?

    Isn’t it stunning?! I’m pretty obsessed myself. I went with an XS top to keep it fitted on my small chest; which has a side zipper that helps for getting it on/off. And a 2 on bottom. It does have some stretch which is great and also a soft leather waist band, so it’s super comfy! Let me know how it works out! xx -K

Are your nails real, because they are always looking fab-u-lous!

    They aren’t :/ I wish they were mine! But I actually bite my nails like crazy, as well as the cuticles (terribleeeee habit), so I’ve had acrylics for a couple years now. It’s the only way to prevent me from biting! haha

I could never get away with that, but you look stunning! What an elegant party dress!

Oh my goodness! You look absolutely stunning!! I need this set for the holidays! So pretty on you!
