Yesterday at work we had a Holiday shoot with some of the fancier dresses in our inventory (if you don’t know, I work for an online luxury consignment store). Alexa, my coworker and friend, and I played dress up and it was so fun, albeit quite exhausting. It got me thinking about dressing up for the Holidays, dress codes, and everything surrounding clothes at this time of the year. Personally, in my family we spend Christmas in comfy clothes and sometimes pjs when it’s only the six of us. I really like to dress up for special occasions but I just feel like it is unnatural when I’m around my family.

I also have two Christmas parties/evenings in December and I’m completely clueless as what to wear. One is a work dinner in a nice restaurant and the other a more casual friend dinner turning into a party. Dress codes are not specified so it makes the whole shenanigans even more complicated. My other problem is that I wear nice dresses on regular days all year round so I never look ‘more’ put together when I make an effort.

I will spare you the rest of my anxious Holiday dressing thoughts and instead ask you: what do you wear for Christmas parties/dinners/celebrations? Please help a confused gal!

I am wearing: Dior asymmetrical dress, Dior handbag, Jil Sander Sandals // Alexa is wearing: Naaem Khan dress
