HOWEVER, this year we have three little shindigs to attend with friends and co-workers (not my co-workers, mind you... I'm still a solitary endeavor over here). None of them is over the top or any type of formal event... but I would still like to exude a fun and festive vibe at each event.
I'm challenging myself to use ONLY what I already have in my closet. It's time to break out the gorgeous pieces I may (or may not) have splurged and invested in all year that I sometimes (yes, it's true) complain that I have no where to wear it to. Do you have those pieces too?
Here I pulled together some quick basics for holiday attire...
1. skirt 2. plaid shirt 3. little black dress 4. chambray top 5. sequin top 6. clutch 7. earrings 8. bling ring
A black maxi skirt covered in sequins is a super rad piece. But if you don't have this exact skirt (or don't want to buy one) you may already own a plain maxi skirt or a sequin mini skirt. Pair it with a simple chambray top and a fun necklace and heels and you are set to go!
On Saturday night I took a simple LBD (little black dress) that I already owned and put a plaid top over it and tied it at the waist. Then I put a pair of heels and a bold necklace on (I wore this one!). Ta-Da! A simple and festive look!
A colorful pair of jeans or cords in velvet (or not) pairs perfectly with a fun sparkly top that you may already own! I love this burgundy pair of pants with a gold top. Dress up the look with heels and a clutch and you take your everday colored bottoms to a fun and festive level!
