Happy Hump Day! We’re officially half way though the first week back from the holidays. Thank goodness for that! I’m especially looking forward to the weekend because I’ve got my first Christmas party to attend! It’s Jered’s office party, and it’s on Friday, which means I’ll be scrambling to freshen up after I leave the office. Fortunately I’m always a sucker for a good versatile piece! So, for today’s post I thought it would be fun to style an office staple – the shirtdress – for a holiday party ready style that can easily go from work to play!
I grabbed this shirtdress during Nordstrom’s fall sale a few weeks back (P.S. it’s still 40% off!) because I knew it would be a versatile staple in my closet, especially for the office. It hasn’t disappointed! On an average day at the office I would usually style this with a much more understated necklace, a classic tote and a pair of flats or loafers – but the holidays give me the perfect excuse to dress it up for an after-five shindig.
To take this piece from day to night, I’ve added a pair of leg-elongating nude pumps, a silver envelope clutch, my favorite statement necklace, and a bold berry lip to finish off the look! It’s really easy to take simple pieces, like this shirtdress, and dress them up or down with the right accessories, and it’s one of my favorite things to do! Finding new ways to wear pieces already in your closet is a great way to experiment with different looks as well as save some cash!
