Holiday Lookbook 2016

     I’m so happy to share the third post of my Christmas blog post series!  One of my favorite things about the holiday season is getting to dress up for parties and other special events throughout the month of December.  Today I’ve picked four of my favorite festive looks to inspire your holiday party attire!  These outfits are ordered from most casual first to most formal last.  Hopefully you can find some inspiration whether you’re looking for an outfit to wear to one of your friend’s casual White Elephant parties or your formal family get together on Christmas Eve.  If you haven’t already seen the last two posts from my Christmas blog series this year, be sure to check them out here!  Enjoy!

A Poncho With A Pop of Gingham

     Perfect for a casual Christmas day lunch with your extended family, this outfit keeps you warm and fashionable.  This poncho feels like wearing a blanket and I love the way it looks over a patterned top like this gingham button down!  Complete the look with jeans and bean boots, riding boots, or booties for a simple, chic look fit for any casual holiday gathering.

A Tassel and A Piko

     A simple and flattering piko top paired with a fun necklace makes for an easy yet adorable holiday outfit for a friend’s party or any other casual gathering.  I absolutely love this necklace from The Tiny Tassel; the fun multicolored metallic tassel is super festive!  Check out The Tiny Tassel here.  Wear this combo with jeans or leggings and booties or riding boots.

A Simple Dress, A Big Coat, and Over the Knee Boots

     Big coats and over the knee boots are two of my favorite current trends!  Wear a nicer, slightly oversized coat over a simple dress and over the knee boots for a trendy outfit for a slightly more formal occasion such as a night downtown or a family dinner.  Add a simple yet fun necklace like this one from Starfish Project to spruce up the simple outfit.  I seriously love this necklace and the fact that Starfish Project supports women and girls escaping human trafficking and exploitation, what a great cause (read more of their story here!).  Check out Starfish Project’s website for more gorgeous jewelry here.

     The final look I’m sharing is a simple and classic outfit I think would be perfect for a Christmas Eve church service or another formal gathering!  I paired a plain black turtleneck sweater with a paper bag skirt and some fun bow heels.  I love the little gold buttons on the sleeves of the sweater and I added a few other coordinating gold accent pieces including a monogram necklace, my watch, and a statement bracelet.
