One of my favorite parts of the holiday season is all of the holiday parties. Ugly sweater parties, white elephant exchanges, secret Santa’s, cookie swaps… I love them all. I am going to a few holiday parties this year, and part of the fun is shopping for them! I am sharing what I’m wearing to my first holiday party (T’s work holiday party) and it happens to be a LBD. I wanted something festive but appropriate since we will be around his coworkers/boss and this little black dress fit the bill. A little black dress is always my go to when I have an event and I’m not sure what to wear. Black is slimming and can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. I’ve had a few little black dresses over the years and this one is my new favorite. I am SO obsessed with this dress. I got it from Dillard’s and it was only $78. You can’t beat that price! It has simple and flattering lines that make the dress timeless and can serve as the foundation for any look you may want. When I am buying an outfit for an event, I usually look for pieces that can be worn again and styled in different ways. Festive party dresses are great but tend to have limited wear. This little black dress can be dressed up for a cocktail party or paired with a blazer for work. It’s an added bonus that this dress can be worn in all seasons. To make this dress more festive, I paired the dress with my favorite holiday shoes. I love how they are close toed, suede, and tie around the ankle. They would be perfect for any holiday party dress. I also wore this Ralph Lauren coat I got from Nordstrom’s fall sale since I knew I would be chilly in the sleeveless dress. I’ve linked a few similar looks below if you have a holiday party that you need an outfit for!
