Ima Ima Swing it This a Way

Now I usually like to pile on the clothes, accessories, scarves, jewels, you name it! But for this particular outfit, I decided a little sequins and a little leather would work just fine.  You might remember this sequin tank that I picked up from H&M from when I was in Seattle (HERE).  I love SHINEY tops and I love H&M so I plan on wearing this top until these sequins fall off!  This is also the leather mini that I bought for $16 at a thrift shop down in the Houston Montrose area and wore to a friend's birthday party (HERE).
I thought I would bring a little holiday sparkle since the season is finally here!! YAY!
I was also excited to get to swing my hair and it actually moved! I have been growing it out for an entire year now and this is actually REALLY long for me. I vowed to my husband that I would grow it for one more year, then we will see what's next!
I am so glad to be back to my normal (what's normal right?) schedule (me, schedule? I don't think so)! I did miss blogging and all my lovely blogger friends and followers!! Welcome back everyone!!

The outfit rocks, and the quality of your photos, spectacular. I love how the light reflects off your hair..and since you are growing it out,,makes it even better that the pics showcase it!

Gorgeous outfit! I love the sparkles. You're right; they're perfect for the holidays and I'm dying for a leather skirt so what a great find!

Va-va-va-voom! Hey good looking! Looking amazing in these photos, the skirt adds just the right amount of sex appeal! Thanks for you wonderful comment. It was quite hard putting myself out there but people like you make me feel good about doing so!

Could you beeee any hotter? I am in love with the leather/sequin combo. Super deadly. You are basically flawless and I need to find me the perfect leather mini.

I love being back to my schedule too! I felt so shambled being away from my blogger world. Is that totally pathetic? Do I care? ;)

Another gorgeous outfit! Loving the sparkly top/leather combo and the photography is really amazing :)

I totally get the whole hair thing. . . it's so hard to leave my hair alone to let it grow - but for the past few months I've haven't chopped it, haha. . . but we'll see how long that lasts :)

hearts and hugs,

You know I love that skirt! This look is very J. Crew-ish, and J. Crew rocks my socks. Does anyone even say that anymore? Am I outdated? Oh no.

Glad all your holiday travel went safely, and glad to have you back!

Totally feeling you on being "back" to a schedule.. Amidst all this craziness of holidays and college finals I'm somehow finding time to keep up with blogging.. or just procrastinating and blogging? Nah. I have missed all my blogger friends, like you miss!
