Christmas is FIVE days away…can you believe it?! Thankfully I’m done with Christmas shopping but I’m no where close to being done with wrapping gifts…so much more to do!
We have a lot going on this weekend with a few holiday parties and my family’s annual game night! I’m sure a lot of you have last minute holiday parties to attend and might need a little holiday inspo! For me I tend to dress both festive and casual this time of year so I’ve styled two looks that will get you from day to night! How do you dress for the holidays?
The first look, a red sweater, plaid skirt and knee hight boot, is perfect for the holidays. Nothing says festive than plaid and red! This look would be perfect for that office party or Christmas Eve service! I love the mock neck sweater and the detailing on the arm…so simple, yet chic!
The plaid skirt is a yes, yes, yes all the way! Although I do love a good Christmas plaid, I like how classic the pattern is and that it can be worn even after the holidays. My normal work attire for winter is black pants, a sweater and flats or boots, so I was surprised that I even picked out this skirt. The button details on the front are so cute and the slit at the bottom makes it a little less business and a lot more fun! A little skin never hurt anybody, am I right?!
Also, how great are these black knee high boots? I love how they complete this look. Not only could you pair this look with boots, you could also pair it with a pair of black pumps or flats! Or why not go crazy and mix in some leopard print shoes or clutch to really make a statement! The second look is perfect for those evening parties where you have the option of really fancying it up or keeping it a little more casual. When I’m not at work, you can find me in jeans, a sweater, and some sneakers or let’s be honest, I live in workout attire! Since my style is typically more of a casual vibe, I chose the same red sweater, black skinnies, black pumps and added a clutch to complete the second look.
I had been on the hunt for a great pair of black skinny jeans with a frayed ankle and found THE BEST pair! They are high waisted (preach) and look so flattering on! They are stretchy which is great especially for when you overindulge at those holiday parties and they come in tall sizes which is perfect for us 5’9″ and over gals! Add black or sparkly pumps to really complete the look! How cute would these be? Or even these?! To make it even more festive add a clutch or a statement earring like these!
Tell me what you’re wearing for the holidays? Merry everything!
