What to Wear to a Holiday Party

Good morning y'all! I am so excited for this coming weekend because I am off to San Antonio early tomorrow morning. If you don't know, I am a huge Billy Joel fan, and I finally get to see him live tomorrow night. So, if you don't yet, follow me on Instagram to keep up with all the festive weekend activities!
Today's post though, is all about holiday parties and what to wear for them! This season is full of cocktail parties, work Christmas shindigs, and family dinners. I always spend so much time in front of my closet trying things on and wondering what to wear. I normally wear lots of black, white, and navy during the winter, but lately I've been loving all things RED. Today, I have a skirt, dress, and lipstick to share with you, and I hope you love them as much as I do!

I got this skirt from The Styled Collection a few months ago and fell in love with it the minute I saw it. It flares out a little at the bottom, in an upside down tulip shape, and I think it's so flattering. I originally ordered in a medium because the fabric is super stretchy, but I ended up returning for a large because I find it runs a bit small. I just paired it with an old silky blouse and it made a perfect simple, yet gorgeous colorful holiday outfit! You could dress it down with flats or add some sleek heels to step it up a notch. It is now sold out (UGH), but I've linked a few similar blouses and skirts so you can recreate it if you'd like! 
 My favorite piece for the holiday parties is this red dress from Gap. It is very well made,  super soft and stretchy, and is so flattering. I really like that the length is a little longer than your average mini dress because I don't have to worry so much when I bend over or reach for something. I paired it with the Steve Madden Stecy heels, but I think it would go well with flats or even booties!



The Stecy heels are 100% out of my comfort zone, but I actually really like them. I'm horrible at painting my toes, so that makes them a little tricky, but I love how they make your legs look longer. I can always use a bit of that! I am wearing Nars Damned in these pictures and I love it. It's a more cranberry-ish, purple red, so it's a bit different than your usual holiday red. It will go well with all of my neutral colors, but I think it paired really well with the bright red of my dress too! My coat is last year's version of J.Crew's vail parka. LOVE.
