Looks for a holiday party

I want to throw a Christmas party this year so I thought this would be a great time to showcase some fun holiday looks. J.Jill sent me this dress along with some other winter goodies and I thought it would be perfect to wear to a party! Dress it up with some accessories like these tassel earrings from H&M and some heels. I’ve had these Vince heels forever and they match perfectly with the dress. I linked some affordable dress options below just in case you’re looking for something cute to wear to a work holiday party or to a party of your own. I also linked my J.Jill dress below too. I’m wearing a size small and it’s still a little big on me. My shoes are Vince but I bought them at Nordstrom rack on sale.

I read this blog post on Paperless Post about picking the perfect date for a holiday party and many other tips and tricks for throwing the perfect party. I have never hosted a party at my apartment so I’m excited to put it together. Click here to read the article! Here are some tips in the meantime. Do you have any tips to share when it comes to preparing for a holiday party? Let me know in the comments below.

1.Friday or Saturday nights are best around 8 or 9 pm.

2.  Pick the perfect date! Make sure it’s a day when people are not traveling or already home for the holidays.

3. Make sure to get the invite list done early. Facebook event pages are the best.

4. Set the food and drink menu and find something fun to make on Pinterest like a holiday dessert.

5. Find the perfect outfit. Wear a comfortable dress and heels so you can easily make your way around the party. Check out my picks above to find the perfect dress.
