Last minute holiday party outfit idea

On Sunday morning I found out that I had a Christmas party to attend that evening and my day was already booked with plans, so there was no way I was heading to the mall to find an outfit to wear. However I knew that I didn’t need to do that. Instead of panicking, I knew that I could put a look together last minute because I had the key items in my closet.

I tucked my black turtleneck into my black pencil skirt which instantly created a little black dress! Put on my double breasted grey plaid blazer, black tights, black ankle boots and of course what takes the outfit to that dressy level is the statement jewelry.

Having the wardrobe essentials in my closet, allows me to create endless outfit options. ❤️

When you buy something, make sure you are able to create a few different outfit options.  If you have multiple parties to attend and you buy one bright red dress…well then everyone is going to remember it. However if you buy an item that you can wear many ways…that is key.

Follow my style tips and you will be set this holiday season. And please don’t buy 5 dresses for 5 different parties…no need for that.

Three Ways To Wear a Blouse

work wear classics styling tips womens fashion ideas back to work outfit ideas mom style ideasThe utilitarian blouse is a wardrobe staple of mine. I wear it the same way I wear the classic white blouse, with everything.  In the first image, I’m wearing the blouse causally with jeans, black puffer coat, black ankle boots and choker necklace.

In the second image, I’ve kept my outfit monochromatic and left the blouse unbuttoned. Wearing the same black ankle boots and black turtleneck from previous post. An important styling tip to remember is that when you leave any blouse unbuttoned it acts like a soft blazer. Creating more outfit options for you.

In the third image you can dress the utilitarian blouse up by adding a skirt or simple slip dress, with a statement necklace or earrings.
