I Feel Pretty | Merry and Bright

Most of the holiday gatherings that our family is attending this year are pretty casual.  Which is great because I can just add a little sparkle to what I already have in my closet to be party ready.  Take this outfit that I wore to a Christmas party over the weekend for example.  I already had the cashmere sweater, plaid blouse and black jeans.  All that was needed to infuse a little holiday cheer was a sparkly necklace and some beautiful earrings from Zocorra.
