Holiday Gift Guide: For The Sporty

December 15, 2014

Here at Sleepless in Sequins, it’s no secret that I like to play dress up. However, what you may or may not know, is that I’m a bit of a fitness fanatic as well. I can’t help myself. The gym is one of my favorite places to be, and when I say I love it, I truly mean that. When I shop or create wish lists, sporty outfits rarely make the cut. I can tell you that I’m not the most practical shopper. I choose fancy over practical, every day of the week.

Last year around the holidays, I opened a gift from my mother in law. I was beyond excited about the activewear capris she got me. I loved being able to have new fitness gear and not have to search for it. So for the sporties in your life, give the gift of fitness apparel. They’ll be doing jumping jacks for days! Here are are few of our favorite styles to start your search. Happy shopping!

It was just a day before Thanksgiving and I had the perfect outfit to wear. There was a forecast for snow, and as I worked from my computer, and gazed out the window, I could see the most beautiful, little white flakes, sprinkling upon the city. It was our first New York City snowfall of the season. I darted out of work to meet Grant and take our perfect snowfall photos, however as I bolted out the door, I was greeted with rain and a bunch of puddles. #omg.

A Fall Themed Blogger Birthday Bash

November 24, 2014

This past weekend, we hosted a fall themed Blogger Birthday Bash for two of our dearest fashionistas, Cara Kovacs of The Stylephile and Leslie Marin of Bleecker and Spring. Unfortunately we missed both girls’ birthdays, so we planned a belated birthday celebration. Our other lovely friends who celebrated were Kathleen Osborne of Le Vintage Dress, Aishly Tromp of Style L4b, and Olivia Ribera of Sweets by Olivia.

I chose a fall theme for the party using shades of plum and metallic gold for the decor. When you are planning a party, it’s important to choose a color scheme and theme for your event. I always start with the look of the room. It helps me to envision the end product, before I even begin. I searched Pinterest for creative, fall themed table ideas, and floral centerpieces to create a story board, which helped me plan the party. You check out my party inspiration boards here.

Weather Ready, Styled in Sorel’s Medina Boots

The winter months are upon us and with that comes the unpredictable rainy, snowy weather. As much as I dread the temperatures, I’m loving the fun, fancy cold weather accessories I’ve found this season.

Sorel is a footwear brand that has recently stolen my heart. I’ve never been a girl who dresses practically. I love sparkly, fancy outfits which are rarely weather appropriate. While attending a Vogue style party, I was introduced to Sorel’s Fall/Winter boot collection. Sorel is best known for their waterproof boots. They are perfect for trudging through any sort of crazy weather. We were able to choose the style we liked best, and my eyes were immediately drawn to the Medina II Boot.
