Holiday Party Attire: Glitter and Gold {what to wear this holiday season}

I love the holiday season. 

I love getting dressed up.

I love wearing anything with a sparkle or shimmer in it. 

Last week I was in search of an outfit to wear on Thanksgiving, something that would be comfortable enough to cook a feast in {don't worry I wore a cute anthro apron} and yet still be festive. 

I ended up pulling this look together out of my closet.


necklace: Francesca's // chambray top: Forever21 {similar} // sweater: GAP // skirt {similar} and tights: Target // belt: TJMaxx {came with a top} // Flower on belt: Whippycake // boots: Nine West outlet {similar}

I am completely obsessed with wearing my chambray shirt with EVERY.THING. I layered it under this gold scalloped edged sweater to add a bit of casualness to the outfit. 

I love this jacquard skirt, the cream and gold colors scream holiday to me. 

The dark eggplant tights add a bit of color and warmth. 

I added a belt around my waist to give the look more of a put together look {and show off my waist, hehe}. Clipping on the Whippycake flower added another pop of color. 

Since both the tights and whippycake had jewel tone colors I opted for a jewel tone necklace I got last spring at Francesca's for $6! 

I opted to wear my other obession with this outfit, my flat cognac boots. I literally want to wear this babies every single day! I think along with the chambray shirt this outfit wasn't too dressy for our Thanksgiving meal at home. 

This would also be a perfect ensemble to wear to a cocktail party at a friends house for the holidays or date night with the hubs.

Such a cute outfit! I have brown boots but they are much darker than that...I would love to have a pair that color. And I love all of your accessories!
