We're back y'all!! Last week myself, Julie, Emily and Laura shared with y'all our own takes on holiday gift exchange looks.
Now we're back with the second of three posts, featuring our favorite outfits for Christmas parties. Whether you're attending an office holiday party, Christmas dinner or cocktail party, any of these looks would be perfect. Make sure you visit Julie, Emily and Laura's blog too, to see their entire look + outfit details!
When it came to picking out the perfect dress for my upcoming office Christmas party, I wanted to choose something that was work appropriate, but still fun. Sometimes sparkle and glitz can be a little too much for the office, so I opted for lace. Still a fun detail, yet more subdued for work.
Of course I found my ideal dress at LOFT. Let me tell y'all... I love this dress! It's extremely comfortable and fits like a glove. I love how the lace detail was carried through to the sleeves as well. The long sleeves make for a more appropriate office dress, and it allows me to go sans blazer or cardigan. Great for when the office building decides to crank up the heat, ha!
I paired the dress with a fun bow belt for the holidays, a pop of red on my lips and a fun cheetah print heel. If you think the pattern mixing is too extreme for the office, a simple black pump or bootie would work just fine.
I can't wait to wear this look next week! Tell me which holiday party you're looking most forward to in the comments below! Maybe this dress would be perfect!
