Holiday Happy Hour

by Jessica Sturdy on December 17, 2012

I wore this gold skirt last week for work and my company holiday happy hour after work! I wanted to be festive, but still office appropriate. A velvet blazer and a gold jacquard skirt did the trick!

You could definitely add a dressier top for holiday parties, but I wanted to keep it more casual for the office.


Gap Velvet Blazer (old) / H&M Polka Dot Tee (similar dress) / Francesca’s Gold Jacquard Skirt / J.Crew Opaque Tights / Jones New York Wedges (similar) / Kate Spade Bow Ring / gifted Sequin Rhinestone Horn Bangle

Thanks for taking my pictures, Tracy!

I love that you wear so many skirts. My problem is finding a skirt small enough to fit my waist, while being long enough. Seriously, ALL of your skirts & outfits are adorable!

I love your style and have been following your blog ever since I discovered you a year ago thanks to LoluFullyLoaded. You have been a really big inspiration to me as a high school student to stand out with my own style and ever since I have been doing so in my final year of high school, I have also received many compliments! Keep up the great job!

Also, just out of curiosity, what is your profession? I remember reading one of your older posts that you attended U of I, that’s in my state! Windy City Pride!
