A Comfy Holiday Party Look

Wow!  You guys, can you believe we passed Thanksgiving and have truly entered the Christmas holiday season?  I, for one, am still feeling a few months behind.  I think the weather threw me off entirely, because I might be listening to the Christmas music on repeat, but Thanksgiving felt like it should have been Halloween since the cold temperatures took so long to hit Richmond!  Either way though, I’m trying to get into the holiday spirit, and one of the ways I’m doing this is by dressing like I’m party-ready 90% of the time!

Here’s the thing about holiday parties: you want to dress up and look nice, but you don’t want to freeze your tush off or underdress.  It can be challenging to find a good in-between, but thankfully I have a few trusty outfits to share with you over the next several weeks (including this one) that will leave you feeling fierce and comfortable!

Enter the pleated midi-skirt.  I’m absolutely thrilled that this trendy skirt style didn’t go out this winter.  I purchased a metallic, rose-velvet one last year that I wore through the holiday season.  This year, I decided on a shimmery silver version that seriously couldn’t be more flattering.  Each time the wind caught the pleats and I saw the pretty, fluttering motion, I just wanted to keep spinning around!  This skirt in particular has an elastic waistband, so it’s incredibly comfortable, even while you’re snacking at those parties!

I chose to pair my outfit with a large tote bag.  This comes in handy if I want to carry touch-up makeup, an extra pair of shoes, a jacket, or even snacks or drinks!  I can fit my laptop and my camera in this bag, as well as my water bottle and more!  It’s really fantastic to have so much space, especially if you’re party-hopping for the evening.  Goodness, you could even fit a whole second outfit inside if you’d like (but I think this one is comfy enough that you’ll want to stay in it all night)!

I’m excited to share more holiday party looks with you soon!  Let me know what kind of festivities you’ll be attending, so I can think up some extra-creative outfits!
