Welp, Chicago had their first snow this past weekend and it was a quick glimpse in to whats to come. I hate snow every other month, but I love me some snow during December. It’s nostalgic and really adds to the holiday spirit. It’s when it snows in March when I start to act like a crazy person. It was fun walking around in the snow – there was a novelty to it, being the first snow and all!
With Christmas on my mind and Christmas parties around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about what to wear! Todays post is all about finding inspiration for those Work Christmas Party Outfit Ideas. It’s time to think outside the box and find your Christmas spirit.
I spent the weekend getting ready for the holidays and doing a little present shopping. I lasted about 30 minutes and thought to myself, “um, why am I not doing this online!!!” So I came home, put on my pjs and got to shopping. Seriously, why do we leave our homes anymore? I sat on my couch, with my computer on my lap, watching the snow fall. Doesn’t get better than that now does it? Well, maybe I should have added some hot cocoa to the mix.
So this time of year rolls around and you have Christmas party after party on your calendar. Um what the heck do you wear!! The work party is always a tricky one right? You want to dress up, but you are also going to be in the same room with a cocktail in your hand next to your boss so you need to find a happy medium. Well, I’ve found a few solutions for you – some even with a sense of humor. This plaid suit was a super sweet score from J.Crew Factory and is the perfect outfit for a work Christmas party. Both pieces can be worn separately, but they are even better when worn together. How fun is this perfect plaid blazer? Dress it up like shown here or dress it down with a plain tee and some distressed denim. No matter the holiday affair, you’d be ready with this jacket!
I paired the plaid jacket with these plaid flannel cropped pants from J.Crew Factory – I mean I can’t get over how great they are! For some holiday cheer, I added these present like pumps from Just Fab and the PERFECT red lip. Ok, PSA I have been wearing this color red for a few months now and it’s the best. The brand (Stila) is fantastic and the color lasts all day, but the color is super rich and vibrant, perfect for the holidays!
Now work parties are the only parties you’ll have this holiday season. Here are some other looks to help you on your merry little way 🙂 What will you be wearing to your holiday party this season?
