I hope you’re not disappointed that you haven’t seen any holiday party outfit ideas yet when you’ve visited here, dear readers!! The blogosphere (and Instagram and Pinterest, of course!) are positively exploding right now with “what to wear” advice for every possible festive scenario – from office Christmas party, to Boxing Day family brunch, to New Year’s Eve date night – so I’m thinking you’re probably doing just fine in that department without me putting in my two cents as well!! 😉
Besides – I’ve always been proud of the fact that the looks I share are looks that I was actually wearing when Robin and I go out-and-about each weekend. In all my years of blogging, I can count on one hand the number of occasions that I’ve created (or re-created) an outfit specifically for a photoshoot…and then only because we quite literally couldn’t squeeze in some picture-taking on the actual “day of,” due to limited daylight hours or impossible weather.
Aren’t holiday ensembles some of the easiest to put together, anyways?! I mean, who doesn’t feel ready to celebrate when they’re all dolled up in a jewel-toned dress, or a skirt covered in sparkly sequins, or separates in a sumptuous texture like velvet…or any combination thereof?! In fact, I think you might be jonesing for a few more “everyday” outfit options right about now; even during this “most wonderful time of the year,” we sometimes need a break to go grab a Starbucks and catch our breath for a bit…am I right??
I promise that I’m not completely forgoing the festive looks, though; my office party was last Saturday, and I went all out for “Best Dressed” of the evening (tee hee)!! You’ll be seeing that special outfit featured here on Christmas Day – oh my gosh, it’s only two weeks away! – so please plan to stop in for a little visit between gift opening and turkey dinner!! And in the meantime, it’s business as usual around here…with some red plaid pants today for just a dash of holiday flavour!!
