It’s that time of year where it’s truly beginning to look a lot like Christmas: holiday decorations, festive storefront windows and radio stations turn to month-long 24-hour Christmas music playlists. I don’t know about you but the holidays are my favorite time of year. I love seeing how my favorite retailers show their holiday sprit through their displays and how they’ve changed over the years. As a fashionista, it truly is magical to see it all come together.
Dressing for the holidays can be tricky, kind of like picking the right time to display your own holiday cheer. Traditionalists prefer to start holiday decorations after Thanksgiving. While others start just after the clock strikes midnight on November 1st. I fall somewhere in between. I am the person who starts listening to Christmas music while putting up my holiday décor the weekend before Thanksgiving. I absolutely love the holidays! In fact, I am always on the hunt for the perfect green attire that seems to only be available this time of year.
While gallivanting around Philadelphia on my hunt for the perfect green, I came across Ann Taylor’s mock neck sleeveless top and my hunt was over (at least for a top). The ruffle and lace detail added an elegant feminine look which provides a very sophisticated holiday appropriate attire.
For this look I decided to show how you could dress holiday chic at work. I paired my shaded moss lace top with another one of Ann Taylor’s must haves – a pencil skirt. The flattering pencil skirt is very formfitting and is very comfortable. The mock neck sleeveless top comes in black as well and I would recommend going down one size as it runs a little big. These two wardrobe staples will add a wow factor for you at work.
The best thing about this holiday work attire ensemble is you can accessories in many different ways. For example, I like to add my go-to Michael Kors open toed leather platform sandals. This sandal comes in many colors and fabrics. The block heel makes it easy to wear all day and the front zipper elevates the overall look.
I am a sucker for a great work handbag. Hint: another blog post coming your way! This Lauren by Ralph Lauren double zip satchel is durable and meets the demands of the workaholic like myself. The double zipper is perfect for my computer and keeps my necessary work items well organized. The Lauren by Ralph Lauren bag comes in five different colors and truly is a timeless piece to your bag collection.
The holidays bring warm toned colors that bring elegance to any look. I’m looking forward to another year of great fashion and cannot wait to bring to you my great finds.
What is one of your pervious or current favorite holiday look?
