It's officially one of my favorite times of the year -- Christmas time!
It has been SO nice having days off from school for the latter part of this month, although I feel like it has been going by way too fast. Even though I still have a store to manage this winter break, I'm enjoying not stressing out about school and having time to hang out with my family and friends (and my cat, of course! ;) ).
One of my favorite parts about the holidays is getting to dress up and party the days away with the people I care about most. Working at a resale shop definitely has its perks in terms of finding the cutest outfits on the cheap! All of the items above embody my perfect holiday party vibes this December, and I've included some quick links underneath for you to easily shop the looks from home as well!
Velvet is one of the top fabrics of the season, and when paired with burgundy (definitely the "it" color right now), it's a match made in heaven. I love velvet garments that are loose and flouncy because they keep your look from becoming too sophisticated.
As far as outwear goes, oversized camel coats are EVERYTHING. I've been rocking one from Forever21 that I can't get enough of. They are the perfect neutral that they can be dressed up or down and that can go with absolutely anything, from cocktail dresses to athliesure wear.
Similarly, oversized chunky sweaters and boyfriend flannels are also fall/winter closet staples. These pieces can easily transition from day to night depending on how you style them, allowing you to stay comfy and warm without sacrificing style on girls' night out. This Christmas season try some in holiday shades and winter neutrals that are festive and fun!
Even in the winter, I still love rocking my crop tops. Keep it family-friendly by pairing your favorite party top with some sleek high-waisted skinnies to add some edge to your look while staying warm. Add some glam silver heels to dress your look up -- preferably with a low heel that is made for long hours of standing, eating and dancing!
I can't wait to show you all what I'll be wearing to my upcoming holiday soirees, so be sure to keep an eye on my Instagram! What are you most excited for this season? Let me know in the comments!
