Que Bella – Christmas Casual

Husband and I are off to an office Christmas party this evening. The dress code stated “Christmas Casual”. This is about as “casual” as I’m going to get and still feel fan-cee.

Sparkley top, bright pants, fab shoes = Christmas Casual
Let’s add bangs…
OK…let’s not.

And talk about those shoes…my favorites from last year, the J Crew Flannery Platform Peep-Toe. I love everything about this shoe. The different textures: flannel, suede, patent. The heel height with a platform making it very manageable to walk-in. The mary-jane strap and the peep-toe that has the maroon patent peeking out.

The top is J Crew Factory I purchased last month and the pants are the Lolli’s from last year. I’ll throw on my Boutonniere Blazer from last year and be ready to go. I must confess it was really hard to keep this outfit my version of casual. And from also being too typical “Christmas-y”. You know, lots of red and or green.

How would you do Christmas Casual?

    I wore my factory sparkly top to a party Friday, too! It's so fun and definitely an easy way to spice up and outfit. I like it with the bright pants and those shoes…gorg!
