Friday is back! Can you believe it’s November already? November-December is crazy for us! Ryan’s birthday is the 8th, then we take a little trip, then Thanksgiving, our Christmas concert, Anniversary trip to NYC, then all the family Christmas parties start, and then poof! It’ll be 2019! I love the holiday seasons, but they always come with stress for me. I tend to overdo it in every aspect from the decorating to the gifts to over extending myself on parties… by the time it’s over I’m afraid I’m going to have aged 20 years like Barack Obama did during his two terms of presidency! Have you seen those memes comparing him when he started and when he finished? Crazy!! If you have any tips for lowering stress levels and finding time for rest in the holiday season, I would LOVE to hear about them! 🙂
A great staple for your holiday wardrobe is a faux suede or suede skirt! Suede is really trending this season and we’re seeing it in so many fun colors, too! I love a classy skirt and boots look for any holiday get together! The suede brings such a great texture to the outfit and looks awesome with sweaters and blouses of all kinds! If you don’t have tall or over-the-knee boots, you can always wear booties, too! I live in PA, and it gets pretty freezing around here, so I will never say don’t wear tights with your skirts if it’s super cold out. Keeping them dark is always a good idea, but I could see using ivory colored with some of these options, too.
I found this super cute suede skirt at Nordstrom! I love the dark blackberry color. It’s so perfect for fall and winter! It’s by Blank NYC. They have it in several different colors which I’ve linked below! You really can’t go wrong with any of the colors. They’re all so pretty. It’s also really comfortable. It definitely has a little stretch to it, so you don’t feel really zipped up and unable to breathe. I could totally eat a Thanksgiving meal and still be comfy in this one! I paired it with a classic ivory lace blouse, and my favorite over-the-knee boots. It’s a great look for any kind of holiday party! I’ve found that it goes really well with several other sweaters I already have in my closet, too, making it so easy to wear again and again without repeating the same outfit. I love a versatile piece like this!
I’ve linked this outfit along with several other suede and faux suede skirts of different sizes all under $100. I’ve even included some cute blouses and sweaters that would go well with them, too! If you are still on the hunt for some great over-the-knee boots, see this post for some of my favorites! What’s your go-to holiday party outfit?
