I’m finally taking a few minutes to post some holiday outfits I have worn already. The skirt in #1 and 2 is a multicolored tweed that literally glitters and sparkles very subtly in any light at all, but the sparkle is totally invisible in photos. I found it in an Ann Taylor, which is a store I only go into occasionally because the looks tend to be a bit too "girly" for me. I took most of these photos on a single morning, not before the events.

#1 sparkly skirt, black cashmere crewneck, black tights and booties, and a slim belt. Worn to a Christmas dinner and baroque music concert at Old Sturbridge Village a few weeks ago. We walked though the old village from dinner to the concert, enjoying the holiday lights in the cold
night. The decorations and menu were quite subdued, which is think is typical of how Christmas was celebrated around 1830 in New England.

#2 same skirt, with a blush sweater, black sheer hose, and black flats/wedges. I didn’t wear the pearls after all. Worn to an open house that some neighbors have every year. The hosts get pretty dressed up but most of the guests do not.

#3 black velvet blazer, white lace blouse, dark jeans, pumps. Did wear the pearls this time. Worn to a party at a friend’s place in Boston. (the find shows red but I bought it in white)

I have to say I really liked these outfits but did not quite love any of them.
The skirt was a big step outside my comfort zone and I’m happy to have it, but the outfits were a bit too dressy, although that was ok with me. I prefer this skirt with the black top and tights rather than the lighter top. I also think the flats I wore with the blush sweater were a bit too traditionally classic…but it was OK. The velvet jacket outfit was fine but I was wishing I had worn something a little more colorful.

All the events were great! No complaints
