A Little Sparkle for the Holidays

It seems the minute I pack away the Halloween costumes, “holiday-inspired” clothing pops up on my radar. Bold reds, hunter greens, plaids, and lots and lots of sparkles. Now, I am a fan of adding a little sparkle into my wardrobe, but in very minute amounts. Same goes for my daughter’s clothing, although I’m sure she’d love to cover herself in glue and roll around in a bed of sparkly glitter. (Have you heard the saying “glitter is the herpes of the craft world?” I wholeheartedly agree. In fact, when opening a holiday card, if I notice glitter is involved, I won’t even open it. DO NOT LIKE THE GLITTER, PEOPLE.)

However, my daughter? She loves the sparkle, and far be it for me to deny her a little sparkle over the holidays. That’s why I am head over heels in love with the idea of a sparkly neutral. Just enough sparkle to catch your eye, but combined with cozy, simple neutrals, such as gray, ivory and camel.

I found some great items at Target for my daughter to don during the holidays and well into the winter season.

1. Sequin Tee, $12.99

2. Sequin Cardigan, $14

3. Peace Sweatshirt, $14.99

4. Sparkle Sweater in Polar Bear, $14

5. Sequin Skirt, $14

6. Heart Pullover, $16.99

See? Sparkle, but not too much sparkle. It’s a win win in my book.
