What to Wear to Holiday Gatherings.

Just spent some time this weekend trying on holiday outfits, and here are a few of the looks I’m planning on wearing:

THESE TROUSERS WITH AN EMBELLISHED KNIT TANK OR THIS DARLING SWEATER I JUST SNAGGED IN BLACK AND A PAIR OF OVERSIZED VINTAGE CRYSTAL CLIP-ONS FROM MY GRANDMOTHER SIMILAR TO THESE

THIS TARTAN BUSTIER TANK WITH BLACK SKINNIES AND BIG BOW EARRINGS

A GREEN VELVET MISA DRESS I ADORE FROM A PAST SEASON SIMILAR TO THIS WITH TARTAN MULES (UPGRADE PICK)

THIS PLAID TOP I SNAGGED

A couple of other pieces I love:

THIS DRESS, ESPECIALLY FOR A DAYTIME TEA OR AN OFFICE PARTY

THIS SCARLET RED WRAP DRESS ($160)

THIS RUFFLE-TRIM VELVET BEAUTY FOR CHRISTMAS VIGIL MASS

THIS SEQUIN SKIRT ($50!) WITH A BLACK SWEATER ($50!) AND THESE BOW HEELS (ON SALE!)

THIS GLITZY RIXO OR THIS SHINE-BRIGHT-LIKE-A-DIAMOND STATEMENT FOR AN EVENING AFFAIR

THIS EMBELLISHED BLOUSE

THIS BOW-SHOULDERED DRESS OR THIS ONE

THIS GAUZY TOP WITH A PEARL HEADBAND

THIS BLOUSE WITH STATEMENT EARRINGS

Finally, a few instant outfit-makers (easy-bake style) — i.e., something you can throw on top of a basic jeans-and-sweater look to look festive:

THIS FAUX FUR VEST

THESE BLACK WATCH PUMPS

THESE GLITZY MULES (ON SALE)

A GREEN VELVET HEADBAND

And if you’re not into plaids, reds, bows, sequins but still want to look festive: this dress is your answer.

And if you’re renting the runway: this glittery gem or this black flocked beauty.

P.S. Time to whitewash the house and how to prep for Christmas.

P.P.S. Major childhood memory.

P.P.P.S. Giving several 2-3 year old girls this gift this year for Christmas. Mini is in love with these things.

  1. So many good options here! I love wearing my own grandmother’s costume jewelry — so nice to feel like I have a piece of her with me during festivities. I picked up that tartan ruffle-sleeve top from J.Crew as well and have already sported it once this season! I feel like it’s pretty versatile, as it can be dressed up or down. Love!

    1. Agreed on that shirt – could be worn with a skirt or jeans! Love it. The sleeve feels on-trend. xx
