Holiday Party Looks!

Happy Holidays everyone! I have been trying to figure out what to wear for my holiday parties and I wanted to put in "Christmas-y touches" into these outfits just to be more festive and show my holiday spirit. From hints of sparkles, reds, and greens, I was able to come up with these three ideas! I hope you like them and find some inspiration for your own outfit!

Love you all and I hope that your holidays are full of fun and love!

Casual Metallics
This outfit is more of what I'm going to wear to a holiday party. I love being casual and comfortable, so I used a metallic ivory top that adds a small hint of fun and sparkle. In certain lights, I'll be GLOWING! :) It's been cold so booties and blazers are my best friends right now! And, I love wearing beanies in the Winter because  I feel like it gives you a bit of edge to your style, so I'm wearing my light grey beret/beanie.

Dressy Embellishment
I bought these jacquard shorts just last week at Forever21 and my boyfriend was wondering why I was buying shorts in the Winter. I'm thinking, WHY NOT?! My reasoning is that we live in LA and it's never really really cold here and I love the shimmery finish and pretty floral embellishments on it! Who could resist?! With this outfit, I wanted it to be slightly more dressy and fun, so I played with a hue of green and I paired it with my shorts with it's perfect shimmery finish! My white leather blazer with the black lapels makes it slightly more edgy rather than super soft and feminine.

Flirty Red 
Who could resist this Winter's most popular color? Deep red! I saw this dress on Asos during their Black Friday sales and knew that I had to have it! There's mesh and a bow design on the front with a fun girly full skater skirt. It didn't come in petite sizes so I had to take it to the tailor's for some alterations. The skirt was pretty long and hit me somewhere slightly below my knees. I don't want to look frumpy and shorter than I already am, so my tailor cut it so that it was a couple of inches above my knees. Paired with my sparkly strappy heels and you have the most holiday appropriate outfit EVER! 
I know that it might be much colder everywhere else, so if you want to wear this, add some black tights and black pumps with a dressy blazer or coat over it. PERFECT!

  5. The shorts in your second outfit look great! I love the current jacquard trend! I like the heels you paired them with as well. I agree, I'm in Cali too and could totally get away with shorts right now. Things is, I live in the northern part of the state, so I would need some sheer tights to go with them. :)

    Stumbled across your blog and am going to follow you because it's awesome! Go petite foodies!

    1. Hi! Thank you for your sweet comment! I used Blogger's simple theme and just played around with the layout myself. I wanted something really clean and easy to read. Blogger pretty much has everything laid out for you with their themes and you can adjust the widths, colors, fonts, and everything as you please. Good luck with your blog and if you have any other questions, feel free to ask!

    When I look at your website in Opera, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
