I am over sequins and velvet. Please don’t get me wrong. As a Latina, I love both, but this holiday season I am giving them a rest.
Christmas Eve dinner requires an elegant, yet relaxed outfit this year. We are dining out at casual restaurant with friends and family. After a stressful few weeks leading up to the Big Event, I am ready to kick back enjoy myself.
This week I found “the outfit” for on one of my favorite sites, whowhatwear.com. The title, What a French Girl Wears to a Holiday Party, immediately caught my eye. I love everything French. This includes fashion, food, cosmetics, and the list goes on and on. The look was fuss-free and chic.

The “Get The Look” picks were great, but I was looking to incorporate less expensive options and some pieces I already owned. After literally tearing apart my closet, making a donation pile, and taking a break with a glass of wine, I found what I was looking for.
From my closet I found these pieces:
Mason Legging, bcbgmaxaziria, revolve.com, $138.
b.tempt’d by Wacoal Women’s Lace Kiss Bralette, wacoal-america.com, $18.
Surplice Top with Mandarin Collar, amazon.com, $69
My only purchase was the top. I can accessorize this outfit with any black pumps or booties and a chained purse.
