healthy for the holidays: what to wear to a party (fancy)

One of the fun things about holiday season is getting together with friends and family. There are many occasions for getting together and I love getting dressed up! I tend to pick dresses that I feel are the most flattering for my body as well as appropriate for the occasion (you wouldn’t wear a micro-mini to dinner at Grandma’s, would you?)

Here are a few of my favorite outfits for holiday season this year as well as a few clothing suggestions:

When I’m going to a party I want to make sure that I think about what I’m likely to be doing there. If I think I may end up playing with the kids on the floor, I will opt for pants or a flared skirt. If I know I’m going to be standing for most of the evening, I probably won’t wear my fabulous 5″ cage heels.

My favorite outfits are shown below:

Top: Express Portofino Shirt; Skirt: Express; Shoes: Ferragamo

Style Files: LBD

Dress: Max Studio; Shoes: Ferragamo

Here are some suggestions from some of my go-to places/brands for holiday dresses. I generally don’t like to spend too much on a special occasion dress (I only wear them a few times each year, at most). Usually my first go-to place is Loehmann’s or even T.J.Maxx but I also have found some really good dresses at places like Express or The Limited.
