Holiday Party Wear





Christmas is almost here! I’m so excited I can hardly breathe. Tomorrow is my last day at work until the infamous “Christmas break” and I can’t wait. It’s going to be so nice to spend time with family and just relax!

We’re thinking of having a “summer meal” on Christmas day as a nod to the Floridian weather. So much different than we’re used to!

For my holiday party wear I decided to go with my favorite leather leggings from DKNY and mix it up by adding a traditional (and gorgeous, I might add!) holiday sweater and a festive tartan scarf. Mixing materials is so much fun and unexpected! Definitely more exciting to wear leather than traditional jeans to a party! Plus these are way more comfortable than a dress and tights!

I’m loving Old Navy lately! I cleaned house last weekend and got a sequin skirt, some flats, a bunch of colored cardigans, and some workout wear. Naturally, I couldn’t ignore the holiday wear either! I’m been coveting this sweater for a long time. It reminds me of one from JCrew a few years ago. Something about it just screams sitting around a fire, cozy, with some hot cocoa. Ahh, that sounds good right about now!

I also grabbed some buffalo-checked button up shirts. I’ve been layering them a lot lately with sweaters like this one and mixing it up with some edgy skirts and ankle boots. I love this time of the year–layering is my favorite. So many chances to be creative and colorful at the same time.

So, what are you doing for the holidays? We’re going to a little town called Celebration this Saturday and eating a nice dinner at a wine emporium. They have a fake “snowfall” and a concert by Ryan Cabrera (remember him?!). Such a nice way to kick off my extra long Christmas vacation with family!
