Merry and Bright!

Continuing on with my “Festive Friday” posts, I wanted to feature a look you can do for basically any holiday party.  Rompers are so in style right now, and I think so easy to wear.  I mean, one piece and you’re done!  I love how the pant legs are nice and tapered on this one so you can basically wear any shoe you want and show it off.  Especially if you’re petite, a slim or straight pant leg is usually more flattering.  It all depends on your body type though.

I chose the red pumps to go with the romper because A) pointed toe shoes elongate the legs, and B) I wanted this look to be festive but not over the top.  The red shoe is just a touch without going overboard.  Gold jewelry was a must with this outfit because I personally think gold looks better than silver with winter white.  Just a personal preference, and I would occasionally do silver, but tend to stick with gold because I like the warmth it adds.

If it happens to be chilly out, you can wear a pashmina over your shoulders like this one.  You could wear a cream one, but I chose a tan/camel color (featured in the link).  I would wear this outfit over to someone’s home for a holiday party, a Christmas Eve dinner, girls night out, or date night!

Not only do people need outfits for so many occasions this time of year, but they also need hostess gifts for all of the events they attend.  One of my most requested things to shop for at Nordstrom during this time of year are hostess gifts for all of these occasions.  Scroll down to the bottom for my top 5 host/hostess gift ideas!
