We had our holiday party at work this week , and my coworkers and I played elves, handing out door prizes. (It was actual work for us, a customer appreciation party.) Still trying to keep things festive throughout the month, with small touches (perhaps barely discernible to others!).

1-2: holiday party outfit. Black harem pants (Eileen Fisher); red plaid t-shirt (made by me); dark red cashmere v-neck pullover (which I cropped); black suede booties with gray cuff (Paul Green). Red nail polish (Deborah Lippmann, Stand by Your Man). Also red lipstick (Laura Mercier, Cranberry stick gloss).
3-4: worn to work. Black skirted leggings (Eileen Fisher); black, gray, and white print knit angled hem tunic (made by me); black raw-edged jacket with loop front, looped around my neck (Veronique Miljkovitch); gray suede booties (Paul Green); silver dangly beaded earrings and red nail polish.
5-7: worn for a day off and shopping, in the rain. Black skinny jeans (Eileen Fisher); aqua merino stepped-hem sweater (Eileen Fisher); cream print scarf; gray moto boots (Frye, Lynn); taupe trench (Calvin Klein); black satchel (Elliott Lucca, Olvera); red nail polish.

In 6, I'm wearing the wine colored lace-up boots I bought while out (Josef Seibel, Sandra 14). I was wanting a pair of lug-soled boots for slippery sidewalks, for winter travel.
In 7, I'm also showing what I looked like tromping around in the rain, with my hood up--I took the photo right after I arrived back home, with raindrops still clinging to my hood. Nothing says "holiday season" like a dark, rainy day full of bustling shoppers, right?

Thanks for looking! I appreciate your thoughts and comments.
