Let the parties begin...

sequins
 
If you're even somewhat social like me (I only go out on the weekends) then you probably have a few parties to attend this holiday season.  Whether it's a work holiday party, family party, or New Year's Eve party, it can be really hard to put together an outfit on a whim.  And if you're like me, you probably need to spend as little as possible!  So here is my go-to holiday party outfit on a budget aka what I could put together from my closet :)

Top- Forever 21
Skirt- Thrifted
Tights- Modcloth
Shoes- Zara
Beret- Gift
Clutch- Express
Watch- Betsey Johnson
 
I think sequins are the epitome of the holiday season.  Whether you see them on an ugly Christmas sweater or a super cute NYE dress, you really can't escape them this time of year.  So I chose to embrace them and pair my sequined top with a fluffy tulle skirt.  If you're worried about being cold, make sure to add some cute textured tights (I chose polka dots- big surprise) and a hat always helps.  Don't forget your favorite pair of cute heels and there you have it!
 
I hope I provided some tips or a little inspiration for your holiday looks this year.  What will you be wearing?  Have any tips of your own?  I'd love to hear them!

  15. Wow, I think this is my favorite party outfit on any blog so far! Sooo cute! I love the hat!
    I really don't have many occasions to wear fancy outfits to. I have a few Xmas parties (and my birthday) coming up but none of them are remotely dressy. Boring!

  16. Boy, are you ever ready for them too! Great party outfit!! Lots of little details that spruce it up too!

  17. I think the hat and tights really make this outfit so adorable!

    My party wear is actually really fancy-We're going to a Christmas Dancer's Ball, so its formal wear. I've got an evening gown (it is the same one as last year, but with evening gowns, it is not like they get much wear daily...)

  18. This entire outfit is perfect. I would totally wear this. All of it. I recently bought a skirt similar and now you've inspired me!

  19. This is so lovely! That top looks phenomenal with that hat :)

  20. I absolutely looove this holiday outfit, the polka dot tights are always a go to for me too. This sparkly top is definitely perfect for the holidays and the tulle skirt is wonderful. Also, everytime you wear these shoes I kick myself for not buying them.

  26. Holy moly, this is such a perfect holiday outfit! The pop of red really makes it the icing on the cake :). I just found a fancy schmancy 60s holiday party dress at the antique mall this week & I knew it had to be mine for the holidays.

  31. That is such a party outfit! By which I mean you couldnt possibly be unhappy wearing it, polka dots, sequins and red shoes -they are all such cheerful items! I don't own a single thing with sequins on it but I do have glitter nail polish which is the next best thing.

  32. This is definitely the perfect holiday outfit, I love the skirt and of course..sequins, who doesn't love sequins during the holidays? Also I need to go see if Modcloth still has those tights, they are GORGEOUS!

  33. Oh my gosh! How cute are you? I love the whole outfit. I love the detailing on the top of your tights. I just bought a pair of polka dot tights so this is amazing inspiration!
