Let’s Get Dressy

Office Appropriate Outfits - Winter

Before we move on from holiday outfits, I have one last one to share with you. If you follow me on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram you probably saw that last week I was debating which dress to wear to the Windy City Blogger Collective Holiday Party at the Hyatt Centric. Long and black with a cut-out back or red and short.

Turns out the long and black dress won by a landslide so that’s what I wore.

Dress – Le Tote (same) | Heels – Bandolino (similar) | Purse – Kate Spade (similar)

I am wearing a necklace, but it’s tiny and delicate so you can’t see it in the photos. And of course I didn’t think to take a close-up.

Also, Chewie did not join me for the party, however. He’s not a party kind of dog.

Oh, and in case you’re curious, it’s really difficult to get a good photo of your back when you’re trying not to freeze while taking pictures with an impatient husband and a dog who would rather be playing at the park. This is the best we could manage.

Anyway, the dress got lots of compliments as did my hair. I got it re-dyed right before the party so it looked fresh and curled. I can’t curl my own hair (seriously, I am the worst) which is why it looks the same in most photos: either totally straight or kind of curly in its natural state.

All of my holiday parties are finally done – except, of course, for the family gatherings I have coming up at the end of the week. But I’m pretty sure I won’t be getting all gussied up for those.

I hope you enjoyed all my holiday outfit posts. I totally didn’t plan to have three of them but, hey, I think it worked out well!

I also hope you have a great holiday or, if you don’t celebrate this week, that you enjoy your week!

    Happy holidays, Erin! It was so great to see you at the WCBC party last week! I’m with you on being thankful all the holiday parties are done, too, other than the family gatherings. It takes a lot of preparation and work to party. =D
