december is one of my favorite months
of the year! i cannot get enough of the holiday
lights, decor, and festivities (not to mention the
delicious treats and baked goods that frequent
our office kitchen). spending time with family and
friends during the holiday season is of
great importance, too. something about this
time of year feels, well, extra special.
the past few weekends have been filled
with parties, babysitting commitments,
and of course, last minute holiday shopping.
putting together fun, yet festive looks for these
events was at the top of my ‘to do’ list.
well, maybe not right at the top, but i hoped
to find a few different pieces to mix and match
for various occasions.
velvet and faux fur are prominent
this time of year, and i could not wait to
style both. after all, you’re allowed to dress
a bit more boldly than normal during
the holidays. grab all your velvet, faux fur,
and sequined items for the holidays!
i paired my velvet skirt with a blouse
(one i frequently wear to work), vest, and
comfortable wedges. standing for extended periods
and walking from one event to the next
requires cute and comfortable footwear (sadly, no
heels for me). gold jewelry and a statement
clutch completed my look.
i have also worn this skirt with a lace
top, an oversized sweater (for a more casual
vibe), and a fitted cream blouse. the possibilities
are seemingly endless, as the skirt
is a neutral color, and this particular skirt
has proven to be a wardrobe staple.
