While planning to dress for holiday events, I found nothing with a touch of sparkle and pretty details in my collection. So I started looking for a versatile top about a month ago. When I saw this one, I knew it would be perfect for me and any events we have planned. I don’t purchase one-hit wonders, so the top needed to work with a variety of garments I already own, and if it could be worn across seasons, even better. A colorful holiday sweater or jacket doesn’t suit my subdued personality.
I will wear the top when we join friends at their home for a glass of wine and hors d’oeuvres. The top is here. Similar pants are here and here. Similar shoes are here and here. A similar tennis bracelet is here.
I’ll wear the tee over my slip dress when we go out for dinner, followed by a holiday symphony performance. The slip dress is now on sale here.
When we get together with my very casual family for our holiday meal, I will wear it with dark jeans and loafers. The top is here. The jeans are here – Similar shoes are here and here.
When we join our dearest friends for a casual dinner with their sons, small grandchildren, and each family’s dogs, I will wear the top with soft jeans and short boots (similar boots here).
I hope showing you how I dress for my real-life holiday events helps you put together some appropriate and comfortable looks from what you already have. If you are missing some items, I always try to include shoppable links to similar current items since mine are often a couple of years old.
