Festive Flair

Happy Friday!!

I’m back today with another work look, this one inspired by the holidays.  The people in my department had a small holiday luncheon yesterday, and I wanted to dress up a bit.

Skirt:  The Limited (Available here)

Blouse:  The Limited

Also wanting to look a bit festive, I decided to go with the classic red and opted for my dark red skater skirt.  The tie-neck blouse and tuxedo blazer dress it up a bit more.

Blazer:  The Limited
Tote:  The Limited
Boots:  Fergalicious by Fergie

I really love the combination of black with this deep red, and I felt like it was a great choice for a work hours holiday lunch.

Tights:  The Limited

Bracelets:  The Limited and New York & Company

All that said, I chose this outfit in a scramble, while still blurry-eyed from not enough sleep.  While I had all of the above in mind, it was not quite as clearly thought out during that pre-caffeine mad dash hour of showering and getting out of the house! 

Earrings:  New York & Company (Available here)

I really like this outfit, and it’s weird that some of my favorite looks over the years have been the least thought out.  I tend to be extremely OCD and perfectionist in regards to many things, including fashion.  Having such outfit success without pre-planning reminds me that maybe I should listen to my gut more.

Of course, some of my worst style choices were also without pre-planning, so what am I saying?  Ha!

Do you plan your outfits in advance, or are you more of a last minute decision maker?
