A Dressed Up Holiday Look

December 15, 2014

A shrug is perfect to go with a fit and flare dress. I always feel like I'm ruining my outfit when I wear a long cardigan because it takes away from the shape of the dress. This one gives you a little warmth without sacrificing style ;)

Dress: Kate Spade Saturday (on sale!). Shoes: Forever 21. Clutch: Jessica McClintock (similar). Earrings: Old Navy (similar). Shrug: Ann Taylor (similar). 

Hello and happy Monday! I am completely smitten with this dress. It's perfect for a cocktail party or a fancy holiday party. I have a family wedding in January that I will be wearing this to and I can't wait to take her for a spin! If you're looking for a dress to wear to a holiday party you can never go wrong with gold and black. It's festive without being in your face. Here are a few other fun options: one // two // three // four

Another thing to keep in mind when going to a holiday party is a host/hostess gift. Something small to let your hostess know you're thankful for all of the work she put into party planning. Some great ideas could be a fun bottle opener, a yummy candle, or even something as simple as a thank you card. Treat by Shutterfly has a great collection of holiday and thank you cards for reasonable prices. 

Have a good one!
