The color of your lipstick is so important when dressing for the holidays. It really completes your holiday look. Even if you're a neutral lip kinda gal, I encourage you to try a berry or red for the holidays. Here I chose a burgundy to coordinate with the top.
I colored my nails the same berry color and I wore rose gold colored bracelets (old, Francesca's) and a rose gold love knot ring a friend made for me. The velvet bag is vintage.
It's always hard for me to choose a necklace when wearing a busy blouse. I usually go with a choker or statement earrings, so I'm not competing so much with the top. This time though I went with a long beaded necklace that had similar colors that are in the top. This way the necklace blends in more with the top, rather than competing for attention.
For shoes I went with these velvet suede wedge pumps (old).
The top has a key hole opening in the back.
After putting this look together as my stylist suggested, I think it really would work nice as a holiday outfit; especially on a day if I'm just home with my family. What do you think? Was my stylist right?

I think it's a beautiful top and you wear it well! You and your stylist are right, it would work for a casual holiday outfit :) Such a nice colour on you too!ReplyDelete
Hope that you have had a wonderful weekend! We went on our annual girls pre-Christmas shopping trip yesterday, finished buying all our Christmas gifts and had some fun together :)

Thanks Mica! You are so ahead of me. I'm so stressed out. I've done almost nothing for Christmas yet.Delete
Really pretty top, fits you great and is just the right Holiday flare.ReplyDelete
Thank you Andrea!Delete
That's such a beautiful top, and I agree, it works well for the holidays! I love that you wore the perfect lipstick with it!ReplyDelete
Have a great week!

Thanks so much! It was definitely a keeper!Delete
It is a beautiful top and the colours suit you very well. I alkali think that the shoes are very nice.ReplyDelete
Thanks Nancy! You're so sweet!Delete
That top is so pretty for the holidays! I love the fun bell sleeves too!ReplyDelete
That's a fun shirt to work with! I'd like to see it with pants in one of the light colors (grey? winter white?), strappy sandals and a blush crossbody handbag. Ha ha, shame on me for taking over your outfits!ReplyDelete
No, I love it when my readers give me ideas of other ways to wear pieces. Thank you. I did think of the color grey but all I had was a pair of super tight and uncomfortable grey skinny jeans. It looked too casual to. I don't have anything winter white. The strappy sandals is a great idea, but would not work in my climate unless I wear boots and carry them inside and then put them on. I love the idea of a blush cross body bag. I have one too! Thanks so much! Maybe a shopping trip is in order for me to find more pants to wear with this top! ha ha!Delete
The shirt looks perfect with the black pants, and such a gorgeous color! Definitely not too casual for the holidays. And you can always bring some gold or silver sparkle into the outfit with a sparkly purse. Love this look!ReplyDelete
Thanks Ellie! I have a gorgeous sparkly purse that would have worked great with this outfit, but I loaned it to a friend back in August and still haven't gotten it back yet. I guess I need to PM her because I'd really love it back for the holidays.Delete
That's such a cute top dear! Love the floral details and the bellsleeves are just so pretty.ReplyDelete

Thank you Jessica!Delete
Perfect Look!! I did stitch fix for a while and gave it up...this makes me want to get back at it again.ReplyDelete
Thanks Katie! Not everyone has a great experience with Stitch Fix. I think you have to give your stylist a lot of time to get to know your style and give them lots of tips like create a Pinterest board and play the Style Shuffle on their website. Notes help too.Delete
That's a really cute red floral top. Great for the holidays.ReplyDelete

I received this same top in my box this month! I thought it was super cute but the fabric was just a little too clingy for me. Looks great on you!ReplyDelete
Oh how interesting, I wonder if it was the size. This is a medium. It does show my tummy bulge a little more than I'd like, but everything does at my age! :) I really like the fabric, it's so soft and comfy.Delete
You look stunning in this outfit! Great styling! Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
I think it's a great holiday look, but I'd need a little more sparkle, too! I'd love to see it with white pants and a metallic clutch...ReplyDelete
Thank you, I don't own any white pants that aren't casual denim. I was checking out some winter white dress pants when I was at JCP the other day, but I was too lazy to try them on plus I was Christmas Shopping for other people. I probably should have tried them on. My metallic clutch is on loan to a friend, which is why I went with the velvet clutch in the photo.Delete
You look great in that top. I love the floral and the burgundy color. Those wedges look very comfy too . I love doing my nails in burgundy or reds - something special for the Holiday too.ReplyDelete
thanks for linking!
Thanks Jess! Lip and nail color are so important when completing an outfit, especially for the holidays.Delete
Hi Amy, after featuring your post last week and have read about Stitch Fix for several years I decided to signup using your referral code, I hope you see that, never sure. Be sure to stop by and share again this week on #OMHGWW in progress. http://ohmyheartsiegirl.com/heartsie-girls-wonderful-wednesday-137/ Have a great week!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much Karen for the feature! I’ve been on a blogging break so I didn’t know that. I’ll be over later today to check it out! As for Stitch Fix, thanks for using my referral code! I so appreciate it! They never tell me “Who” uses it, just that a “friend” used it and then they credit my account. It’s nice to know who it was.Delete
