The Perfect Festive Holiday Look!

It is that time of year when I have so many parties it is hard to keep track. For me, I am usually running from one party to the next, so I like to find a holiday look that works for both the day and night. This week alone, I have a work party in the day, a fun holiday cookie event in the evening, and the annual holiday walk and fireworks show in Manhattan Beach.

holiday look pants from Lulus

These pants from Lulu’s are perfect for the holidays. Not only do they scream fun with their wide legs and fun slits, the color is spot on for any celebration. Not only will they go great with a chunky sweater, but I will wear them with a black pump and a fun bodysuit for a fancier event.

Steve Madden velvet boot

Can we say that velvet is the trend of the season? I took one look at these Steve Madden boots and new that I had to have them. I have always been a fan of over the knee boots in the winter. The texture of these makes the whole look feel even more festive.

I tend to live in chunky sweaters during the winter. Every year Express has some of my favorites. I love the color of this one, and as the weather transitions it will look gorgeous with a pair of white jeans. Mixing up the light rose with the darker burgundy makes the look pop even more.

Valentines with Revolve Clothing

It is that time of year again for a great excuse to buy a pretty little dress. I always love to get dressed up for date nights, and one of my favorite sites to find great pieces is Revolve Clothing. Anytime I need something for an event, they are my first site to browse as their brands are playful and sexy, but still polished enough for a woman in her thirties.

This Valentine’s Day, I think I have to have few separate date nights, as all of the dresses below are on my wishlist. Happy Valentine’s Day!
