One of my absolute favorite things about this time of year is being able to attend holiday parties. It’s SO much fun to dress up in sparkles and sequins and bows and holiday colors. And today I am collaborating with Lauren of Fizz and Frosting to show you two ways to dress for a holiday party!


I love that we are both wearing bows on our outfits and that our outfits are actually coordinating!  I could see myself wearing this outfit for a happy hour holiday party at a local lounge or restaurant while Lauren’s look is perfect for a work holiday party.  I love how we both topped our looks with a belt!





I just bought this belt from Anthropologie and I am pretty much in love with it.  The crystals are gorgeous and I think it’s great that it’s a neutral color so it will go with  a lot!



Outfit Details

Top: Brickyard Buffalo
Skirt: Kate Spade
Shoes: Christian Louboutin
