Holiday Party Outfit: Glammed Out Holiday Look.

Top: H&M {bought in-store- super similar version online!} // Skirt: Charlotte Russe  // Shoes: Clark's {similar here} // Sunglasses: Le Chateau {Canadian store} // Purse: {old - bought on trip to the UK!} // Earrings: c/o Gabe's {Kendra Scott has a very similar style in their Color Bar found here!} // Bracelets: c/o Taudrey // Lips: Chanel Rouge Allure Gloss in Sensuel

     Happy Friday! Or should I say "Fri-yay," as we are getting to close to Christmas now! I'm so excited to be sharing another fun holiday party inspired outfit today on the blog. If I had to pick the quintessential Annaliese holiday party outfit, it would 100% be something that looked like this! A gorgeous tulle skirt, a glam sequin top, and a few fun coordinating accessories to pull it all together is exactly my type of look. 

     The crop top that I'm wearing from H&M is one of my favorite recent purchases! It was priced at an incredible $9.99, and I know that I'll find endless use for it in the coming months! It would be great for dressing up a pair of skinny jeans to wear for a night out on the town with my friends. Yet as you can see with this outfit, it can also be the perfect finishing touch on a classy and sparkly ensemble that is perfect for holiday festivities! And I just have to add- the pretty teal color and the fun print on it (plus the fact that it's a crop top) totally help me to channel my inner 90s girl, and I feel like I'm especially channeling Christina Aguilera circa her Genie in a Bottle music video phase when I wear it. #noshametoadmitthis

     Lastly- it was 70 degrees when the photos were taken for this blog post! 70 degrees. In December!! Oh Charlotte, you are too good to me. Having a whole week of beautiful weather during exams week school definitely made it harder both to finish all of my final papers, and also made the transition to coming home to Maine a bit more difficult this week as well! Luckily Maine doesn't have any snow yet... hopefully that will continue to hold off!

     Have a great weekend! Does anyone have any fun plans? I am working most of the weekend at my retail job back here in Maine! I'm currently not planning to return home this summer, so these could be some of my last shifts at the job that I've had for over 3 years!
