Christmas to New Year's

I recently wore this outfit to my company Christmas party.  The event was held in a large art studio here in Athens and it was quite cold so we were encouraged to dress warmly.  Of course being the "dress for the occasion girl" that I am and it being a Christmas party sparkle and shine were a must for me!  I found this sequin bomber jacket on super sale and HAD to have it!  It was a great way to stay warm at the party but also fit the "it's the holiday's so dress up" bill too.  I'm planning on wearing it again over New Year's when The Hubs and I take our annual New Year's getaway trip.  The jacket goes really well with leather pants, like I'm wearing here, but will be equally cute over a LBD or with jeans.  Isn't it great when you love something, it's on sale, you buy it, and you realize it can be worn for several occasions?  I know I sure do!

~ What I'm Wearing ~

Sequin Bomber Jacket: Charlotte Russe (It's on sale for $20!!)
Shimmer Tank: Entourage Clothing
Faux Leather Pants: Target (These are actually leggings but I sized up so they would fit like pants. These are under $20!)
Crossbody Bag: H&M (sold out) | Identical
Leopard Pumps: Nine West (last year) | Similar
Lippie: NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Monte Carlo (This color looks great on everyone!)
Double Ring: Kendra Scott

Me and my gorgeous "side kick", model and assistant, Maggie, at our company Christmas party at Stan Mullins Art Studio. Yes, she's about eight inches taller than me (and a whole lot younger!)

Sorry about the quality of these pictures.  I planed to get some better shots at the event but the lighting at the studio was not picture friendly and I had to go with the pictures The Hubs shot of me before I left the house for the evening.   I almost didn't post this outfit but I had SO MANY questions about my jacket after putting this picture of Maggie and I on Instagram I decided to go ahead and blog away! ;-)

Also, I may or may not get another blog post in this week.  I've been working at our flagship store here in Athens all week, which means I'm exhausted in the evenings, my kids are home from college, which means we are doing family stuff in the evenings, and I'm trying to wrap up the little last minute details of Christmas before the busy holiday weekend!  Are you ready?
