Holiday Double Feature – Casual Cocktails

Happy Friday, everyone!! 

Skirt:  Torrid (Available here)

Today, Irene and I are wrapping up our holiday double feature.  Hope you’ve gotten some ideas from our posts on red and green, office parties, sparkle and shine, and tuxedos

We’re wrapping up our series today with a look for what we’re calling “casual cocktails.” 

Sweater:  New York & Company (Available here)
Boots:  Target

Going to a more casual holiday event?  Whether it’s a house party, a low-key bar, or holiday happy hour, some events of the season are simply more casual.

You could go with jeans and a sparkly sweater (which would be perfectly cute), but I love the idea of elevating even your casual looks for the holiday season.

Ring:  LOFT

This look has a cool French girl vibe that I reaallllly dig.  It feels ultra sexy without looking like you tried too hard.  

The off-the-shoulder sweater and peek-a-boo lace on the skirt add visual interest to this simple monochromatic look.  Wanting to preserve the sophisticated simplicity of this outfit, I chose minimal but statement-making extras, my Dior-inspired pearl studs and a red clutch, to complete the look.

Earrings:  Target
Clutch:  Vintage

Irene went more casual, but kept her look interesting and festive with special touches like her tuxedo stripe trousers and a lace color blocked blouse.
