Holiday Party Outfit Inspiration

Christmas is by far my favorite time of year & it isn't even about the presents (although presents are pretty cool!), but I really enjoy getting to spend extra time with my friends & seeing family members that I don't get to see on a regular basis.

My favorite part about this season are all of the get-togethers; I think of them as the most perfect excuse to wear my most festive clothes and get all dressed up. . .
(Ask C, I'm always the most dressy person at every single event!)

Today I wanted to give you a little bit of inspiration, because even the biggest fashionistas need some ideas every now & then!

Below, I'll be sharing four different ideas.
They are all dresses; two are for festive Christmas gatherings, one is for a more casual Christmas dinner, & then lastly is a dress that would be perfect for a New Year's Eve dinner or party!

Look Number One:

A Gift For You Dress, Red

This is the "A Gift For You" dress from The Mint Julep Boutique.
The tartan is absolutely gorgeous and so festive.
This would be perfect for a fancy family dinner or meeting your boyfriends parents for the first time over the holidays.
I suggest pairing it with these statement earrings (bonus points if you pull your hair up into a low bun!), this sweater, and these shoes.
This outfit is a winner for sure!


Look Number Two:

All The Trimmings Dress, Dark Green

This is another beauty by the Mint Julep Boutique, the "All the Trimmings" dress.
It's the flowy answer to the ever-lasting question of, "What do I wear to Christmas this year?!"
And hey, if your grandmother is going to ask you when you're getting married for the 640th time, wouldn't you at least rather be wearing this gorgeous number?
I suggest wearing long straight or curled hair & pulling it back halfway to show off these studs.
Personally, I think this outfit calls for a statement necklace as well, so how about this one?
Pair these pumps for a classic look, or go a little on the wild side with these booties.

Look Number Three:


This more casual option is from Lime Lush Boutique.
If you're just having a casual lunch with your grandparents or maybe with just your parents and siblings, I think this dress would be the perfect, comfy-yet-cute option!
You can layer it with tights or if you're brave, go-bare-legged!
This necklace, bracelet, & these earrings would be the perfect finishing touches.
Wear your hair down and loose or maybe pull it into an Elsa braid, just remember to keep it casual and fun!

Look Number Four:


Okay, I'll be the first to admit that I'm more of a "going out to dinner & out for drinks" on New Year's Eve kind of girl, not really a party girl.
But this dress is perfect if you're going to a party or out with all of your girlfriends, etc.
This is from The Flaunt Shop & it's the "Evening Getaway" dress.
It's everything a girl could want; glitter, glamour, and a very sexy back that you just have to see.
Wear it with these earrings and these booties for a look that will have everyone wishing they could be your midnight kiss.



I hope y'all enjoyed this little post that I put together, I know that it doesn't apply to everyone but someone somewhere out there needed some ideas.
I know I have a get-together this weekend that I've got to be planning for!

Until next time. . .

xoxo,
