Happy Monday, loves! Can y'all believe it's 11 days till Christmas? I don't have a fancy holiday party to go to, but if I did, this leather & feathers look would probably be my go-to holiday party outfit. I know it's usually all about LBDs and sparkly dresses, and as much as I love all those options, it's fun to stand out every now and then, no? This faux leather pants & feather trim tank combo is my version of an LBD for the holidays! I am absolutely loving this feather trim tank that's over 40% off right now, and just $40! It also comes in skirt & dress versions, and they're all on sale!
And so it's time for this season's first gift guide! I've rounded up some fabulous gifts, for women, a they're all under $50! As I was putting together this gift guide, I couldn't believe some of these things are under $50! Of course, then I wanted to buy all these things for myself *yikes*! Click on the links above to shop each item.
Stay tuned over the next couple weeks, for more gift guides, and a round up of the best Thanksgiving and Black Friday sales!
Happy Monday, loves! While it's Monday morning for most of you, it's Monday evening for me! I am coming to you from Kuwait airport! Crazy, huh? If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you probably saw that I'm on my way to India. I have a layover in Kuwait and they have free WiFi, something I strongly believe all airports should have! The last week was super crazy for me and I didn't have much time to work on the blog. So, I figured I'd use this 3+ hour layover to bring you a new post!
I have re-created one of the looks from my Work Holiday Party Outfits post! In case you didn't know, I have a thing for wrap dresses. I think they're so flattering & feminine. This time around, I wanted to pair my wrap dress with OTK boots, to make it more weather appropriate!
Deciding what to wear to a work holiday party is one of the trickiest things! Of course, it has to be professional, but this is also the right opportunity to show a bit more personality, no? Also, this is your chance to get noticed. So, what you wear to a work holiday party can be very important. That being said, you also don't wanna look like you're trying too hard.
The outfit I'm wearing in today's post works for a dinner party, or a low-key afterwork holiday get together. During work, you can skip the belt and add a blazer. After work, the belt adds more personality. When it comes to deciding what to wear to a work holiday party, I'm all about making subtle statements. The dress is a good ol' lbd, but there is a lot of volume, which definitely makes a statement. The shoes aren't loud, but they do stand out. Lastly, the best part - y'all know how I feel about pockets, right? If it has pockets, it wins.
Would ya look at all that volume? This dress just makes me wanna keep spinning!
And because one option is never enough, here are two more ideas to help you solve the dilemma of what to wear to work holiday party, including an entire outfit under $100!
Could you excuse me while I drool over this outfit? If your company's holiday party is super fancy or if you're in a senior role, this is the look for you. You're definitely going to turn heads, in a really, really good way! Again, it's all about subtle statements. Each piece in this outfit can make a statement all on it's own, but I've kept everything pretty neutral, making the skirt the highlight of this look. Can this whole outfit end up in my closet .... now? Please? (Hope you're taking notes, Santa!)

So, how do y'all handle the what to wear to a work holiday party dilemma? What's your formula? Which of these three looks do you like best? By the way, anybody already had their work holiday party? What did you wear? If yours is coming up, what are you planning on wearing?!
