Hi sweet friends and happy Thursday! Can you even believe that Christmas is just less than a week away?! For us, Christmas always starts on the 24th, because that is my dad’s birthday, so we start our Christmas celebration on Christmas Eve! It’s truly my favorite day of the year and I cannot wait for our holiday ham dinner, peppermint martinis, gift exchange, and A Christmas Story movie on repeat! How do you girls celebrate Christmas and do you do anything on the 24th??
Over the next few weeks, the holiday parties will be going strong, so today I’m back with a fun, menswear-inspired holiday glam look! Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE having a reason/excuse to go out and buy a new dress and get dolled up, but after the umpteenth party, your favorite pair of jeans sound quite tempting haha. So if you’re like me and don’t always want to wear a fancy frock, dressing up jeans with a fabulous blazer and sassy accessories is a great alternative for your next holiday gathering!
Village Pointe is always my go-to destination for one-stop-shopping; as all my favorite retailers can be found in one convenient location! Last year when I was shopping for the holidays, I remember stopping into White House, Black Market and they had the most amazing selection of sparkly tops and festive pieces, but that particular day I just didn’t have the time to try on. So when I was out at Village Pointe last week, I made it a point to give myself enough time to stop at WHBM and try on allllll the things!
This white blazer is such a stunner; with the tailored fit and the shimmery accent – but what I love most about is that I can wear all year long! A white blazer is a wardrobe staple and a classic piece that never goes out of style. You can easily take this blazer from Saturday night’s holiday party to Monday meetings at the office! The black satin cami I’m wearing underneath is a simple, yet sexy layering piece and I love the subtle sheen it has. Sometimes these kinds of tanks don’t work well for me, as they can hang too low in the front, but the straps adjust, making it a versatile piece for when you want to show a little more or cover up! This tank is unique because it has a piece of magnet hidden in the front of the drape, which pulls it down so it lays properly and doesn’t bunch up in the chest area!
And you girls know I love leopard print, so I couldn’t pass up this adorable bow belt, also from White House, Black Market! The warm hues in the print paired nicely with the cooler tones of the jacket; balancing the ensemble and bringing out the warmth in my red accessories. SALE ALERT!!! White House, Black Market is running an amazing sale and the entire store (and online) is 40% off! Simply use code 45905 at checkout!
And speaking of red accessories… how gorgeous is this clutch?! I’m obsessed with the sparkle on one side and the simple sheen on the other. It also comes with a silver chain strap, so you can either carry it as a clutch or use it as a shoulder bag! And it’s currently on sale for under $36 from DSW at Village Pointe!
My red heels went perfectly with the sparkly clutch and I like how my distressed denim brought a little edge to this festive look! I’ve had these black jeans for almost three years now and they get better with every wear. My earrings look like mini wreaths and are my favorite to wear during this time of year! I purchased them a year ago, but the retailer has brought them back again this year in four different color options; and three of them go perfectly with this outfit. And the final touch on this look had to be my silver Sabby Style Bracelet Set because it went perfectly with the silver detail on my jacket! Use code sabbystyle10 for 10% off your purchase!
I had so much fun styling these pieces for a more laid back vibe, but of course all of these items would look fabulous with a little black dress, as well!
And a proper holiday party look is not complete without big hair! I take my hair care very seriously and when I want to do it up big (pun intended haha), I always reach for my Garbo’s volumizing products!
So you tell me, are you a fancy dress girl OR are you more into the jeans and heels vibe? I’m definitely BOTH! xoxo
