Love this holiday party look

I love the holidays!
Christmas party outfit
 Milly pleated sleeve blouse (size 2) // lace flare skirt (size XS, 60% off!)
Jimmy Choo Abel pumps, similar & less expensive here & here // Tory Burch clutch
Whenever I get invited to a holiday party, my first thought is always, “What am I going to wear?!” followed by a bout of panic. This year, I’ve vowed to prepare early and plan out my holiday outfits ahead of time! This pleated sleeve blouse from the Milly collection at Nordstrom was a splurge, but it’s so versatile that it’s completely worth it. For this look I tied on a black bow that I already had in my closet… it would also look beautiful with a statement necklace like this one! You can wear it with any skirt, but it also looks just as great with dressier pants and even jeans.

I also want to point out that the lace skirt is on sale for less than $25… it makes a great Christmas and even New Year’s skirt! I’m wearing the XS πŸ™‚

I had a very relaxing weekend… I went to go see the movie “Interstellar” on Friday night and it was one of the best movies I’ve seen this year. My dad is an amateur astronomer so I was already familiar with a lot of the space terminology, which made it really interesting! Even if you aren’t into space, it’s still a great movie, haha (and it has Matthew McConaughey in it!). Anyways, stay tuned this week for more holiday looks!

  38. This is pretty cool. I have also planned a somewhat similar dress for my holiday outfits. You look very adorable, caitlin. To add an extra glisten to my appearance, I have kept dainty stud earrings aside for her. They are rich red rubies that will perfectly match and complement her cute red and blue dress.

  59. There are many good things about learning easy to use basic office party ideas. I read about some, including a couple of cocktail catering presentations for help with any special event planning for summer cocktail parties.
