Holiday Outfits | From the office to the party

Truth be told, one of the hardest things for me to wrap my head around is going from the office to a holiday party. Most of the time there just isn't enough time between the start of the event and me leaving work to justify going home, changing & then making my way back to wherever it is I'm going. For that reason, I try to have at least one part of my outfit be appropriate for both and then bring along everything else I need. I'm crushing hard on these velvet pants (currently 40% off) - basing my entire look around it!! 

I'm a tad bit obsessed with these shoes - they also come in black, but unfortunately my size is sold out in the plaid color combo I want, so I might settle for black / white or wait for them to come back in stock! 

Velvet is the fabric of the season and I love that these pants from Ann Taylor can be worn to your work holiday party or dressed up for something swanky! 

I shared one LBB that I have my eye on in this post & then while scrolling instagram I spotted this one from Sole Society & love the price point as well! It actually looks like the perfect in between bag, again taking you from the office to out during the holiday season!! Any bag that can hold my large wallet without me having to pick and choose what I want to take with me is a winner in my book! 

While I like to keep my "party" earrings out of sight at work, doesn't mean they can't make an appearance after hours - especially considering my earlobes can't handle the heaviness all day long! 

H&M is my go to for fun "going out" tops - actually last year at the last minute I got my NYE top from there! One thing my closet is seriously lacking is sequins...need to remedy that immediately! I have a this top in the long sleeved version and I just spotted that they make it in a peplum version

Easiest way to dress up any look - a bold red lip! My favorite color is "Ruby Woo" by MAC

What's your go to for taking your outfit from the office to the party?

  20. Office Christmas parties are so tough! I'm so glad mine was at 7pm and formal and they let us out at 3 so we were able to go home and get dolled up! I love those plaid and glitzy heels I wish that color wasn't sold out everywhere! Great glitzy roundup for the holiday!!

  26. I love this post, girl, it's so reliable because you're right, there often isn't enough time to go home and come back, so bringing some pieces to add to the work look to make it more party appropriate is often the only option. That said, I love all the pieces you've shared here, all of which are festive and perfect for a party! I love H&M tops for the holiday's too, they tend to have such cute embellished tops that are so festive! Thanks so much for sharing, beautiful, and I hope you're having the best week so far!

  35. Love your choices! One word of warning about velvet pants....I had (and loved) them back in the day as you love them now....but....they are HOT (as in not sexy hot, well, they ARE "sexy hot"), but they are HOT, HOT, HOT in temperature. If you run cold they are great, if you run hot, they aren't!!!!!! xoxoxo catchatwithcarenandcody

  48. It really is way too hard to go home and change for a holiday party after work! I love your idea of wearing something that's easy to dress up quickly, and wearing red lips is the perfect way to do just that!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I love that peplum top and think that I would like it even more if it was long sleeved. I def agree that a red lip def screams holiday party. I barely wear red lip but when I do its usually for a special occasion.
