Dressing Up Denim

We recently hosted a little Christmas party in our home and I struggled with what to wear since I didn't want to be over-dressed, but also didn't want to be too casual. Don't you hate that?! I finally decided on this jeweled sweater paired with denim and my leopard heels for a snappy casual sort of look. I also wore my new Purple Peridot earrings which happened to match this sweater perfectly! 

Sweater: J.Crew Factory (option) | Denim: Loft | Heels: Target | Clutch: Tory Burch | Bracelets: Loren Hope | Earrings: c/o Purple Peridot | Ring: Kate Spade (option)

  1. We have been invited to a casual NYE party and I have no clue what to wear. I have been considering a sparkly sweater or a tunic and leggings. I think that either pumps or boots will add a bit of dress up to the outfit! Thanks for the idea! Susan

  2. Love the shoes! I can't believe you got them at Target?! Are they comfortable? - I find shoes from stores like Target, Walmart, etc aren't the comfiest.

  12. Thanks for sharing your look with the Holiday Style Linkup! And yes, I definitely think you struck just the right balance of dressy but not too dressy. I definitely think the "in between" events are the hardest to dress for!
