Holiday-Ready Office Look.

This is a recent work outfit, featuring two of the biggest colors of the Holiday Season: Red and White. I added some Cognac and Gold to the mix too. I shopped my closet for all of these pieces and I may have taken a tag off for the first time (oops!) despite these being a few years old. I felt like I wore brand-new things though. This Silk Chiffon Girly Bow Blouse combines a beautiful floral print with a subtle windowpane print (the whole bow part and the top back part are windowpane). The Red Satin Pencil Skirt screams "Wear me now, wear me now!". It is the right time to wear it since it is festive December. And to match the Skirt and feel even more glamorous and holiday-ready I am wearing my newest Red Lipstick from Revlon. Instead of wearing some Classic Pumps though, I chose these T-Strap Cognac Wedges (they give this outfit an old-fashion glam vibe) and last but not least I carried a Beautiful, Soft Leather Gold Clutch. I love the large knotted bow detail on it. Special honors go to my Gorgeous Watch and Purple Topaz Drop Earrings. These little pieces dress up my outfit even more and make a statement for sure. What was perfect about this outfit is that I was able to wear it right after work for a little Christmas gathering with some past co-workers of mine and old friends. This outfit can definitely take you from the office to a Holiday party. And it was about 50 degrees so I went bare-legged. What do you think? Have a red satin skirt hide in your closet somewhere? Wear it now - you won't regret it. I also have another red satin pencil skirt (but in a darker red), believe it or not. And I am pretty sure my red pencil skirt will get worn at least once more, this month.

Before I leave, I want to apologize to several of you for not being able to comment regularly, lately. I have fallen so behind in the last few weeks reading several blogs, since I am back to working in the last month or so. I am taking it a day at a time and catch up with a blogger or two each day. That on top of gift-shopping, holiday events, work from home, house work, being a mom and a wife, cooking, cleaning, blogging and everything else has put me behind. I have actually drank a lot more coffee lately. So bear with me and thank you. Also, thank you so much for liking my recent Christmas Home Tour. I am hoping to have part two up for you all this Saturday or Sunday at the latest, as promised.
