Office Holiday Party

This is my first year being in a “real adult” job during the holidays, meaning I get to attend my first office holiday party! My company puts on a pretty big show, and it’s definitely an event to see and be seen at. I’m super excited! It’s given me an excuse to go shopping, but I don’t want to blow all my money either so I’m mixing in some pieces that I already own. Here’s what I plan on wearing for the big day:

Ellen Tracy Scuba Keyhole Dress ($53)

Baublebar Anastasia Hoops ($38)

Calvin Klein Strappy Sandals ($75)

Calvin Klein Toggle Wrap Coat ($160)

INC International Concepts Clutch ($35)

And that’s only half the fun! There’s still the beauty side to think about 🙂 My idea right now is a French manicure on my hands, fire engine red for my toes, and a salon blowout for my hair. I can’t wait!
