You might be wondering what Tinsel Tuesday is? Well I wanted to go off of my last “What I’m Wearing” post on a casual Friday just to keep you updated on my wardrobe during the week since I don’t have a chance to take and post pictures every single day. Anyway, I am calling it Tinsel Tuseday because my blouse with the stripes of metallic almost remind of tinsel and just because I am getting so excited for upcoming family, friend and work Christmas parties! Tomorrow we are having a marketing group Christmas potluck and Thursday is our company’s Christmas party (where I get to reveal my ugly Christmas sweater)!
“DO” the LOOK
Black Blouse: Basically any blouse would work, and unlike me, a colorful blouse would really be a great touch! You could even wear a shirt dress, sweater dress or professional work dress with a cardigan to put together this look.
Black Skirt: Any basic pencil or professional work skirt is ideal. A metallic skirt would be fantastic (I’m saving mine for our potluck tomorrow) and really bring out the metallic in the blouse or the belt.
Gold Buckle Belt: This is the attention grabbing detail of the ensemble today. Keep the rest of the outfit sleek, no matter the colors you choose, and detail with a big buckle (could be another color) to have a point of interest. If your skirt is high-waisted like mine, the belt is perfect to highlight the smallest part of you!
Black Patent Kitten Heels: *INVESTMENT PIECE* I don’t think I usually focus on shoes as an investment piece because there are so many, but you just can’t go wrong with a nice pair of black kitten heels. They are great for skinny jeans (dressing up a more casual look), dress pants at work (help your pants hit at the right spot, especially if you are tall) or in an outfit like this! They are just classy and you can never go wrong with classy.
Fishnet/Lace Tights: *INVESTMENT PIECE*Maybe it is just me… but I feel like everybody has to have a great pair of fishnets! They are fun and believe it or not can look very professional in an outfit like this. Of course, they make a statement, but pairing it with the right skirt length and more conservative top, you are in the clear to wear them to work to spice up your day.
Champagne Lipstick: Just another shade of pink lipstick in my collection. You can’t go wrong with a slight shimmery pink for work and it goes well with a lot of looks. Bright shades, nude gloss or just some moisturizing cherry Chapstick or tinted Burt’s Bees are also great options!
