HOLIDAY PARTY -- AN OUTFIT POST

Is your planner filling up fast?

During the holidays, friends and family love to get together, giving you ample opportunity to dress up.

At holiday parties, you see people you haven't seen in a while. So why shouldn't you get glamorous? But you don't want to go completely over-the-top. Being comfortable makes having a good time much easier.

Here is my rendition of a holiday party outfit:


Glittery sweater dress, leggings and pumps.

Simple, easy, but also festive.

Oh no! That pumpkin again. Trust me, hubby chucked it after the pictures.

Aww. My dog decided to join in. He's not shy.

Oops. guess the pup is a little too brave. You don't mind him mooning the camera, do you?
 
A couple of side notes...

I know your social life catapults during the holidays -- all those parties and gatherings -- but please be considerate to others. 

Try to be on time. And if you are going to be late, please notify the people who are expecting you. Treating people like second-class citizens is a great way to alienate them :O).

Second note -- please don't drink and drive!
