I love an excuse to dress up. Being in my mid-twenties and working full-time doesn't always provide a lot of opportunities to put on a fun dress and rock a little glitz. During Christmastime, Jon and I end up having a handful of Christmas parties to attend between our two jobs. This year, I've really been leaning towards black and gold for holiday wear. I've always had a soft side for a little shine and glitter. I can't deny it. ;)
Tips on Dressing Up for the Holidays:
* Rock an over-sized scarf, snood, or wrap so you can still show off your outfit and feel warm. I love how Anna of In Honor of Design wears her fur snood for the holidays. Very classic and glamorous.
* Try a sock bun or a new hair-do! This was my first attempt at "sock-bunning". My hair has gotten to that way too long to manage stage so I wanted to try a simple up-do. I was pleased to see that the sock bun didn't look too crazy with naturally curly hair like mine, since I usually see it done with straight hair. This look is easy AND feels dressy. Try your own sock bun here.
* Be yourself. I think sometimes it's a little tricky making your personal sense of style into something more fancy if your personal style isn't too fancy to begin with. Add elements of what you like to your little black dress. Incorporate your favorite pair of shoes, jewelry, and a fun nail color.
