It’s that time of year where the holiday office parties are coming up and the struggle of what to wear begins! Why a struggle? I mean, it’s not really thaaattt difficult, it’s just remembering where you are going (location, location, location), who you are with (coworkers not your crew) and where you’re coming from (often times coming right from the office). As my mom always reminds me, ‘head to toe, always be put together!’
As you know I was just in Chicago for a work conference and wore this little number for a networking, cocktail event. I fell for it as soon as I saw it because it does day and night and trendy and chic so well. It was perfect for the event and would be great for an upcoming holiday party. The florals being on trend, the sheer sleeves for a little edge and the color for a little ‘I still mean business’.
Hope this offers some holiday outfit inspiration for you darlings!
P.S. Don’t forget your accessories!
Fun fact: The first thing my mom will ask me about (after what am I wearing) – ‘wear your jewelry and lipstick missy!’ Followed by ‘yesssss mom, I know!’ lol
Note: If you were wearing your dress to work with studs, bring some statement earrings to switch out before your event. Wearing pumps during the day with your dress? Bring some strappy sandals to change into before the party!
