winterized this dress  before by layering a black blouse underneath this strapless dress, last seen
here. This year, I’ve added a bit of glam with this statement caplet necklace from Charming Charlie.  The right piece of jewelry can turn any little black dress into one holiday-party-ready. Charming Charlie have some great pieces for this season!

long H&M black dress is also a great solution if you’re looking for something easy to wear to your holiday party. I’ve paired with my red heels for a pop of color because the dress lining doesn’t go all the way down to the floor so my shoes will be seen. I’ve added the red flower in my hair to up the ante on Christmas charm. What other time of the year can you?

Unfortunately, this dress is now sold out, but I’ve linked up to a range of long black dresses below.

holiday season is cranking up and you’ve got piles of holiday parties to go to? Consider investing in a black jumpsuit, it’s cozy and warm (I’ve layered mine with tights), and it looks effortlessly stylish. I’ve paired with the red accessories for some Christmas charm.

The easiest way to manage your clothing budget during the holiday season is to pair your black outfits with red or green accessories. I’ve opted in investing in red accessories because I like the pop of color contrast.

some inspiration to what to wear to your next holiday party? I’ve been kicking the red and green trend and opting for more classic colors of black and white. I dressed this look up with this fun Zara bell sleeve blouse (
similar) and Forever 21 trumpet mini-skirt (similar). Everyone is featuring the bell sleeves lately, but I just haven’t found them practical to wear for day-to-day. But they are the perfect statement trend to wear for a holiday party!

I kept with the bell shape trend going and paired the look with a trumpet style skirt. It’s an old one, last seen on the blog here and here. And if you are looking for a pants option, these slightly flared ones are great.

And these ASOS heels are by far one of my favorite heels in my closet but they are a couple seasons old. I’ve linked a few other great options below.

I promise I don’t always have my hands in my hair, but it was such a cold and windy day when we took these photos. Most of the outtakes where with my windswept hair in my face.

If you live in DC, do check out the roof terrace at the National Gallery of Art that is currently featuring Katharina Fritsch’s “Hahn/Cock” on Long-Term Loan from Glenstone Museum. I actually saw this rooster first when it was on show in Trafalgar Square in London a couple of years ago. It was so fun to see it again!
