I'm giving party dresses a break this week. I have been loving my dressy jackets. Thanks to some special touches, this jacket and jeans feels just as fancy as short dress.
I wore this outfit last week to our team holiday party. If you can believe it, it was a party for 9! It would've been bigger, but three of the team members live out of state. We had a lovely dinner at Tipsy Parson in NYC. I told everyone to dress festive. I had been wanting to wear this jacket all season. I bought it last January at the Cabi Scoop event in San Diego. There's a big warehouse sale at the end of the event and I "scooped" up this jacket. I love the cut and the sparkle.
Since the jacket had a few special touches (don't you love the lining you see peeking out in the top photo) and I wanted my bag and bracelet to stand out, I kept everything else simple. The slim jeans are from a StitchFix box and the turtleneck is ancient from a long-ago shopping trip in Paris.

The dinner was lovely and everyone looked smashing. I'm fortunate to have ladies surrounding me with great style--they inspire me everyday to look my best and to never think boring and basic are all that moms can wear. From our 22 year old interns who come to the office looking adorable to our busy Long Island mom of two who has a tot yet to experience the joy of sleeping through the night AND yet she still remains looking sharp. YOU ladies inspire me!
I hope your holidays have been anything BUT boring and basic. I can't wait to see what you've been wearing. I must say the holidays are such a fun time to check out what everyone is wearing. And a special thank you to the lovely guy from the Vermont tree stand in Brooklyn who let us use his shop as a setting--Merry Christmas to you!
