Holiday Outfit

I have several holiday events coming up for which I need to dress up. After looking in my closet, I realized that I needed to get some new pieces.

I had been thinking about getting some faux leather pants/leggings for a while and thought they would work well with a holiday/celebration outfit. Yet, they can also be worn on other occasions. After doing some research, I decided to give Loft’s faux leather leggings in tall a try. I ordered them online during a special “$20 off pants” event. Plus, I had gotten a $25 off coupon code via email because I hadn’t shopped at Loft for a while. Somehow these promotions tend to work on me… ;) I liked that the leggings are fabric in the back and only faux leather in the front - it sounded more comfortable. And I am not disappointed.

I also ordered the tunic at Loft (it’s an online only item). I like that it is longer in the back than in the front - it really covers the behind - perfect for pairing with leggings. Plus, the color is beautiful and very much on trend right now. The tunic also comes in a very pretty, festive green as well as in black. I’m sort of keeping my eye on the green (and maybe black) one, in case Loft has a major sale, which they tend to have quite often, including “flash sales” where everything on the site is 50% off for 12 hours or so.

I chose a delicate, layered fringe necklace to complete the outfit. It was on major sale at Banana Republic but arrived as a tangled mess. I honestly suspect it left the warehouse a mess as the price tag was attached in a really weird way, around the tangled mess (maybe it had been returned that way???…From the price stickers, it looks like it its price was reduced five times). I almost returned it but then decided to invest 30 minutes to try to detangle it since it was such a good deal. And I think it was worth it. We’ll see how it survives my holiday travels…

Questions: Do you have any “dressier” holiday events to attend this year? If so, what are you going to wear?

    1. Thanks, Patti! And, yes, I do love a good deal! :-) But I have also decided to buy a lot less and only purchase what I really love, regardless of how good a deal something might be. It's only a deal if you love something and wear it for years to come...

      Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  4. Wauw! I am a big fan of faux leather pants and also of tops or skirts that are longer at the back. This outfit looks so good on you. Those legs! You really look stunning.

  6. Sometimes I buy online too...( well, honestly I buy everywhere!!) and find it very comfortable! Your tunic is a very versatile piece and you surely will be wearing it often! I love that it is longer in the back! The same in green is a good idea so ... keep an eye on the price and at the right moment ... click quickly!! :-)

  7. I just love the loft! I've been looking for some of those leggings and ordered some from Macy's that are also fabric in the back but I wish I would've known the loft had them! You look gorgeous and I love that necklace with the outfit! I hope your Thanksgiving is his grand and beautiful as you are!

    1. I think the Loft was out of the leggings in most sizes for a while (or maybe these are a slightly different version than what they had before) because I had been looking for them in my size for a while and then they suddenly appeared... :-)

      Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, too!

  8. Good Morning Andrea! I absolutely love this look on you. I am thrilled you found a pair of leather leggings that are knit in the back. I had been looking for a pair like that and could not find them anywhere. I hope you don't mind, I linked your post for my readers to see how fabulous these look on you - I love the entire outfit, well done!!! Have a great Holiday! XOXO Suzanne

  11. I think that's a very attractive outfit, Andrea! It has a hint of southwestern attire.

    I'm afraid I only get really dressed up for life events, not counting a cap and gown :-)
