Holiday Double Feature: Casual Cocktails


Here we go – the very last outfit post of our week-long Holiday Double Feature collaboration series with Cassie of Style Cassentials.  

We’ve been discussing and putting our own unique twists to some Holiday trends ALL week. Hope you’ve been enjoying it.  If you missed any of my previous posts I’ll list them at the end of this one…so you can get yourself caught up and festive ready! 🙂

There’s bound to be a few dress-down weekend holiday house parties you’re gonna have to hit – and that’s what we’re focusing on with this last post we’re calling: Casual Cocktails!

I picked this soft pink lace trim top on sale from Penningtons a few months ago.  It totally caught my eye with its mix-media textures, this top would go well with a skirt or dress pants, to the office on weekdays and totally works with jeans on the weekend.

The lovely lace trim and cool colour-blocking over soft pink sheer front and cotton back just makes this top oh-so unique.

Since this top has lots of interest to it, I was easily able to tone down the vibe of my outfit while still looking a bit ‘holiday fancy’ for a festive house party at the neighbours or whatever last min invites that may come your way for boozy egg nog and Christmas cookies 🙂

Faux fur bag from Aldo Accessories

How I Got The Look:  Sheer & cotton laced top from Penningtons; Navy tuxedo striped pixie pants from Old Navy; Brown suede booties from Reitmans; Faux fur bag from Aldo Accessories; Bow-tie earrings were gifted.

Cassie’s off-the-shoulder winter white sweater with lace skirt combo is oh-so romantic for the holidays.  Head over to Style Cassentials for all the details on how Cassie has styled the trends.  Or visit her Facebook page here.

Holiday Happenings: The Ugly Xmas Sweater Party

Screen Shot 2014-12-09 at 6.19.04 PMNow that we’re firmly in the middle of December, there’s bound to be a “cheesy”, “ugly” “holiday/xmas/Christmas sweater party in your future.

Me personally, I’ve got three separate invites and opportunity to wear one all happening THIS week!!!  Knowing this, I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect one…and I think I found just that ========> Ta-Dah!!!

A Xmas Sweater of Scottie Dogs WEARING Xmas Sweaters!!! OMG! Right!??

Not only is this sweater a convenient cardi …. the details of this knit are pretty amazing:

Those little red specs are actually knit HEARTS.  And the BUTTONS!!!!  Just look at these buttons!!!!!

AND I found it on FACEBOOK being sold for $10!!!!!  BOOM!

SCOTTIE DOG
LOOK AT THE BUTTONS!!!!! Little Scottie Dogs — seriously!?!?  The cutest things ever!

How I Got The Look: I’ve had this Dorothy Perkins mini dress for a while now –  I don’t often wear it on its own as it’s uber short and clingy.  I typically wear it as a top to show off the amazing shoulder pleats of this dress.  But this Christmas red dress paired with this “ugly” holiday sweater, over-the-knee boots (AdditionElle) and sheer black hosiery just seems to work, don’t you think?IMG_5945

Now, for the office party this week — I’m gonna swap the sheer hose for thick black leggings.  Ideally, I’d like to wear it with my plaid leggings to add more length to this skirt…if I can find them :).
