Office Holiday Party OOTD

Reminder: Don't forget to enter the Revlon Lip Butter give-away! Just a few more days!

Holiday season at my office means one thing, we get to start drinking at 1 in the afternoon.  I mean, we get a holiday party!  It's also a time of the year where you dress up, but newbies can often make a mistake of what to wear to a holiday office party.  No one wants to look like the office slob...or worse...the office slut.

This year our party was held at the Racquet Club. It's a daytime event that sometimes runs into the evenings.  I also live in an area where it's pretty cold already, so it's either tights or boots when wearing a skirt or dress.
Breaking down the outfit:
Sunny Leigh Textured Scoop Neck Shell from Burlington Coat Factory: $16.99
Why it works: Neckline is good for either a long or short necklace, it doesn't show cleavage, but allows enough skin to show.
Dana Buchman Lace Pencil Skirt from Kohls: On-sale now for $36 (use coupons for extra deals!)
Why it works: Appropriate length for the office.  Pencil skirts are always chic for the office (just watch how high your back slit is!) This skirt can also be mixed back into your normal work wardrobe with a nice top.
Gray Satin bow flats from Payless by Lela Rose: about $13 a year ago
Why it works: Adding a satin shoe can instantly add more glam to your outfit, especially if you want an extra touch.  Other good options are shoes with jewels/gemstones on them.  Just don't go breaking out your bedazzler.

-Black tights by Hue

-Silver tone necklace from Jennifer Lopez line at Kohl's (from the clearance rack for about $6).
