The Holidays are in full swing which means parties and get togethers, which therefore means party outfits are in need! I love dressing up for the holidays and even more, I love planning for dressing up for the holidays. I always wish I had a bunch of fancy parties to go to so I have an excuse to dress up, however this year, I have been really into dressing up more casual outfits. This is totally unlike me, considering I wore JEANS ON THANKSGIVING. I ALWAYS plan on a dress, but this year I was really digging the jeans and sweater look.
Anywho, Amanda and I did a try on haul at Nordstrom for some fun and different holiday looks. All items are linked below!
Burgundy is always a good holiday color whether it is the majority of your look, or your one pop of color. Both looks can be dressed up or down with either heels, boots, or booties (I especially love this scarf Amanda found!). Linked below:

Corduroy skirts are SO FUN! I love that they can be dressy or causal. Paired with a loose print top and they are perfect for a family get together. Again, both can be dressed up or down with heels, booties, or boots! Linked below:

Despite the fact that I have been drawn to more casual looks this year, I am still a sucker for holiday dresses, and how cute are these two lace ones for ASTR?! I really want ad excuse to NEED these! Linked below:

Prints! Prints are always a good idea, they make life more fun. Amanda’s sweater is SO cozy and the perfect holiday colors. I was obsessed with my dress, I love the plaid, BUT it runs HUGE! This was an extra small and I was still pinching the back for this photo. Mind you, it is supposed to fit loose, but still, order a size down. I think both of these looks would pair best with heels, especially the sweater as it is so casual. Linked below:

Amanda and I didn’t even notice that we came back to the fitting rooms with the same shirt, but both had different bottoms in mind! It is super cute but I highly recommend the bralette underneath like Amanda did, it is super loose and you would be able to see a regular bra. Also Amanda swapped the skirt for the center shirt for a dressier look, but still corduroy! Linked below:

These next looks are more for NYE, but how fun are they?! I feel like this is the time to get a little more out there. Wear all glitter or sequins, and make it something kind of edgy and sexy. You want to ring in the new year feeling good, right? Amanda’s black jumpsuit is to die for! So fierce! And this sequin top, I mean come on, with black jeans and some strappy black heels? YES! Linked below:

Not going to lie, I feel like Austin Powers in this top yet I am loving it! The ruffle neck is so British, but it is shiny with a slight animal print, so fun! Amanda’s top is super flirty. Sheer, low cut, and ties in the back. Both would be best with a pair of strappy black heels! Linked below:
Left: Top | Jeans – Right: Top | Jeans
THESE DRESSES. That is all I have to say, they are self explanatory. Every NYE I want to wear a sparkly dress and every year I don’t. THIS YEAR IS MY YEAR! Also, how amazing is this velvet duster?! We both wanted it so bad! PS- Amanda’s dress has a corset type ribbon in the back. Linked below:

Below are some bonus looks I love! Why can’t we just buy them all?! All linked below (all pics from Nordstrom):
OBSESSED with these jumpsuits! Also, I have been stalking that center dress for over a year… Left
You have to have red options for Christmas, it’s a must! Left
Velvet is always a good idea in the winter. Rock the left
for NYE or the right
for Christmas! You can even add a blazer.
Do you know what you’re going to wear yet? I am still unsure, I am trying to find that look that just calls to me. I do however, know what I am wearing for NYE and I am SO EXCITED! I will do another post soon on more sparkly ideas for that. Stay tuned!
Happy Monday!! 🙂
