I am very excited to announce that I have teamed up with a wonderful photographer! My sweet hubby will still be taking some of my pictures as well, but I am thrilled to be working with Fortuitous Photography to bring a more professional and clean feel to the blog!

I will be sharing some holiday inspired looks this week and next. This particular outfit would be great for a more laid back holiday party. We all love the fancy cocktail dresses but, let's face it, we don't always have an opportunity to wear them. Most holiday parties I attend have a more relaxed dress code (especially here in Colorado). Wearing a plaid button up with a skirt is a great way to dress up a little without going all out. The top dresses down the skirt and heels. I particularly love the bead detailing on the pockets as it adds an extra touch of glam for the holidays. 
I added a red heel and lip to break up the heavy black in the look. This is a very easy look to recreate and can easily be tailored to fit your style (think black pants or a black pencil skirt in place of the skater skirt or red flats instead of heels). 
Stay tuned for more great seasonal inspiration (hint hint: there's lots of red)!
