what to wear: a casual holiday party

It's that time of year, y'all! Time for company Christmas parties, time to have friends over for milk & cookies, time for festive get-togethers and there's one question to be asked. 

What are you going to wear?!

I'm excited to kick off this "what to wear" series off with a casual Christmas party. You can dress down a skirt & blouse or an actual dress, but if it were me, I'd rock some dark skinnies with some sparkle flats and a quirky blouse. Add a statement necklace for some flair, a white boyfriend cardigan for a little cozy, and you've yourself got a winning combination without being overdressed. You will walk into that party with a look, I'd like to call:

festive & fashionable

Silk Snail Blouse ((anthropologie)) blouse, HERE
My favorite denim, AG Stevies, HERE
I probably wouldn't go this casual, but you certainly can! TOMS Gold Glitters, HERE 
A boyfriend cardigan, you can find anywhere, like HERE
Statement necklace is way out of ALL of our price ranges, my apologies for even putting it on here, but HERE is one similar!  

(( you could even throw on a cute skinny red belt for a little more festivity ))

You look GOOD, now pour yourself a glass of eggnog and relax. Your company Christmas party will be over in no time and then you can go home & snuggle up in your PJs & watch Elf for the 26th time this season. 




  1. Love it!! Nice change from the standard black or shimmery stuff I am always seeing these days!

  2. I am all about gold right now. Toms are on my list for Santa too. :) Great choices. That green Anthro top... drooling.

  3. How darling! We've got TWO office holiday parties coming up and I need all the inspiration I can get!

  4. love this! Unfortunately I have a not so casual Christmas party coming up. I am thinking of wearing a black dress from Anthroplogie(yrs ago) with grey knee high boots. I think I just need me a cute cardi and belt or maybe a scarve. I will stay tuned for a maybe not so casual holiday party what to wear ;-)

  5. that blouse is soo stinking cute!! i need some more quirky ones!!

  6. This is really appreciable. I am here to know about the Originals Inc company profile and what new things the different fashion sites are doing these days. Please do share some information for me.

  7. Super cute! Love the sparkly Toms paired with dark denim!

  8. I like the tips for casual wear. I like Bella store because it has the complete solution for wearing best for casual:
