{Outfit Inspiration} Holiday Festive

This is the last weekend before Christmas, which means the final round of holiday parties. We don’t usually go out New Year’s Eve, so I love to get a little more dolled up for Christmas parties. No one throws black-tie affairs around here, so I can get by creating festive outfits from my everyday wardrobe.

Holiday Outfit

I love a new dress as much as the next girl, but a sparkly sequin number wouldn’t get much action in my house. All I need to elevate an outfit to party status, is statement jewels, metallic touches, bold lips and a snazzy clutch.

Holiday Outfit

The clothes themselves don’t need to be expensive or fancy…here I paired a Target tshirt (with lycra for better shape) with a brocade skirt.

The sunny day makes it hard to see the pattern of this skirt, but it’s cream with a gold thread pattern, and a fun bubble shape. The more jewels the better, too, so pile them on!

Holiday Outfit

I prefer my tights to be really opaque, so I layered patterned ones over a pair of plain black. And of course everything feels dressier with high heels.
