Today I am dressing it up a notch for work and practicing a look that would be acceptable to go straight from work to a holiday party (being as this may be something I am faced with in the next month). I'm going with a classic red fit and flare dress from the LOFT, tights are a necessity in this weather. I also decided to go with a little ankle sock to keep my feet extra warm in a pair of heel booties, from Hautelook. For work I am also wearing a tuxedo style blazer over the dress, but this is something that could totally be ditched for the party look. This classic base allows you to have fun with a lot of sparkly accessories and even a scarf if you want! My favorite peacoat will keep me toasty in blistering winds.
