Shop Outfit Details Here:
Usually for the holidays I don’t have a chance to get all dressed up. Most of our gatherings are family and friends; but very casual dress. Lane and I try to go to The Nutcracker Ballet around Christmas. This year it did not work out with his work schedule. So another year of no frills needed. I may just dress up anyway.
I did find a fabulous shrug that adds the perfect amount of sparkle. It can be worn casual or dressed up. There is a gold metallic thread woven through with fur. The fur makes it so soft and cozy while still having a glamorous look. When I started writing this post I checked to make sure the shrug was available. Unfortunately it completely sold out at Anthropologie. I was not able to find it anywhere else so I will link some other similar options I love as well. The brand of my exact one is Sleeping on Snow.
I wore this to a dinner out with some friends. I went all black under it. Black body suit, black skinny jeans, and black over the knee boots. The gold in the shrug really stood out! Anytime you go with an all black ensemble it really showcases any pop of color. I usually go with a red lipstick when I wear black. Red lips always draw attention to a smile.
To break up the bodysuit and jeans I added a belt with a gold accent buckle. Gold is my go to usually for accessories; this was exactly what the all black needed.
I have been on the fence about the over the knee boot trend. I wasn’t sure if I would like them. Will they stay up? I have to say, I am hooked. These boots are amazing. They stay in place, so comfortable, and they have a tassel tie in the back. All my hope and needs are met! I couldn’t be more thrilled. The price was even great. I definitely want them in a tan!
As always I will link my actual items if available and other options too!!
Enjoy your week!
