Chelsea and Ginny Take On: A Christmas Party


This week Chelsea and I are taking on a Christmas party.  Now, I must confess, Brian and I don't really go to Christmas parties that call for dress like this, as fun as it would be.  We're just really not that fancy.  However, we do go to more casual get-togethers, and today's outfit is definitely one I'd wear to one of those.  When I saw this top at Gap, I knew I wanted it, and my first thought for styling it was with a simple pencil skirt and heels, which I think I'll try, but then I got this idea. I pretty much love it. Last time I wore this vest to school, a student petted it, and Grant told me I was fancy, so that's pretty much a win. I figure it's definitely Christmas Party worthy. : )







Vest: JC Penney $8 similar
Top: Gap $15 similar as a cardigan
Necklace: Stella and Dot same
Bracelets: Stella and Dot  Chimera, Moxie , Renegade 
Boots: Wanted $29 (via eBay) almost exact / same in black

This week Chelsea has done it again! These pretzel bites look amazing!  Make sure to stop by Whatcha Makin' Now to get the details for how to make this recipe for yourself.
