Happy Friday! So glad the weekend is here!
I spent some time yesterday putting together some more casual holiday outfits, now I just need some events to wear them to! I’m missing my Seattle friends a lot right now, a little sad I won’t get to do any holiday partying with them. But we do have some fun things planned to look forward to so trying to focus on that.
I ordered these red satin pants on whim, thinking they probably wouldn’t fit, but I slipped them on and fell in love! Just like wearing pajamas, but so much chicer : ) I paired with a cozy cashmere sweater and like how the different textures mix. This outfit would be great for a lot of things – a holiday concert, dinner out, or a casual cocktail party.
Pants – Loft (40% off today, size down one size, mine are a 2), Sweater – Ann Taylor (similar), Shoes – Audrey Brooke via DSW (similar), Clutch – Ann Taylor, Bracelet – Premier Designs
These pants are so versatile, I put together a 2nd outfit using them and it may be my favorite of the bunch! A fun graphic tee keeps things casual, a blazer adds structure, and a sparkly necklace finishes it off. I think I will wear this when I go out with a friend and her girlfriends next week.
Pants – Loft, T-shirt – Old Navy (similar), Shoes – Audrey Brooke via DSW (similar), Blazer – H&M, Bag – Michael Kors, Necklace – J. Crew
Red, winter white, and emerald, are all fabulous colors and very festive, but why not mix things up with some blues for the season. And paired with white you get a light and bright outfit to stand out in the crowd. I decided to pair a mint sweater that has sparkly sleeves, with my white jeans, and royal blue accents for something a little different. I wore this out with Michael’s co-worker’s for drinks last night.
Jeans – COH (similar), Sweater – Express, Shoes – Asos (similar here and here), Bag – DSW, Necklace – Premier Designs
This outfit is a little bit edgier, and one I would wear any time during the winter! I added a brooch to make it more festive and think it adds some fun contrast.
Coated Skinnies – J Brand (similar), Blazer – F21, Shirt – Zara, Boots – Ann Taylor (similar), Brooch – Premier Designs, Bag – Ann Taylor
And finally an outfit with red jeans, a comfy winter white sweater, dressed up with sparkly shoes. Perfect for a casual holiday party. I think I’m going to wear this to Michael’s office holiday party tonight – there is going to be karaoke!
