And so it begins… the holiday party circuit. It’s hard balancing the fine line between holiday overdressing (sparkly black dress) and underdressing (ugly Christmas sweater). When in doubt, I always think incorporating a pop of metallic solves the problem (in this case, a gorgeous gold swing skirt). Then building a color palette around that piece becomes easier… how about a bold plum lip and some complimentary nails? Then to edge the whole outfit up, throw other guests off with one earring. But don’t worry, the classic shape of your mesh pump will keep you safe and approachable! Just make sure that on top of it all, you wear a warm (and very cute) coat. If the temperature plummets further than expected, don’t get the blues. There’s nothing that a bottle of seasonal Chandon can’t cure!
