Wedding Inspo!


{holiday inspiration}: gold + black party attire!

Okay, so I'm not sure what your calendar is looking like, but mine just got seriously full. With holiday parties that is! Yesterday, I shared some fun hostess ideas, but today is all about what to wear. I actually counted and I have 6 holiday parties that I've already been invited to this season. 6! I don't know about you, but if you're anything like I am, the second after you start receiving party invites... your next thought is... "what am I going to wear?" So today I thought I'd share with you one of my favorite color palettes to wear for the holiday season. Glittery gold and jet black are just meant to go hand in hand! Plus with statement pieces like these, it's easy to mix and match to create slightly different looks for all the parties you'll be attending.

From that sparkly dress, to those black onyx earrings to that gorgeous little cocktail ring... there really is so many gorgeous ways to accessorize this season. When it comes to pulling an outfit together I'm all about mixing in some fun patterns! That's why I'm absolutely smitten with those striped flats and that polka dot clutch. Oh, and can we just take a closer look at those flats for a second? Aren't they just the cutest pair you ever did see? I'm in love with the glitter toe accent and those perfect little bows. If shoes could talk I swear these would say ''where's the champagne?'' They truly are so fun! So there you have it, here is just one of my favorite party looks. So tell me... how many parties are on your calendar this season? Oh, and this reminds me... I'm actually going to a holiday party tonight! So it's off to get ready I go! Have a great weekend, lovelies!

I'm more the classic red for Christmas but these black ideas for outfit and accessories are totally my number one choice for New Year.

Black color for outfits is best choice in all. The dress is simply stunning and I love the "Bow Heel".
