What to Wear to All the Other Casual Get Togethers During The Holiday Season. I've got you Covered -Head to Toe!
As we all know, the holidays are not all glitz and glamour. Between running around buying gifts, having to upstage elf-on-the-shelf's antics from the previous year, fighting unbearable mall traffic, and endless lines, I'm already pooped just thinking about it. Sure we may have one fancy event or company christmas party to attend but we tend to have a lot more casual gatherings with close family and friends. I've put together an ensemble that is casual, and chic! So on those days where you can't "namastay in bed" and have to put on your bra, you can slip into these stretchy pants that look so much like suede they will have everyone fooled.
It's always a good idea to dress in layers this time of year because you're freezing one moment only to be blasted with heat the next. I paired this vegan leather jacket with a sleeveless lace-up sweater to add a little interest to a plain white t shirt you would normally wear underneath. I'm pretty much obsessed with anything lace-up" this year and it add the element of being "on trend" without having to go for some of the other less-flattering trends this year....(ahem, the bodysuit?!?!).
The pants are BCBG Max Azria and are the most comfortable (non-yoga) pants you will own. They are stretchy but still give enough compression and structure that you won't feel like you're running around wearing leggings as pants -c'mon ya know we've all done it! They are made out of a microfiber material that is made to look like suede.
BUT, the real showstopper here are the over-the-knee boots. I had the hardest time figuring out how to wear these puppies without looking like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman. I scoured tons of magazine articles, pins on pinterest, and did ALL the work for you and I can honestly tell you that they look much better over pants than paired with a skirt. When they're paired with pants the exude class and have a tremendous leg lengthening effect. Who couldn't use that, right? Mine are by Stuart Weitzman, but I've scoped out a few that are very similar at a fraction of the cost.

So now that you have the perfect outfit for you casual get together you can join the fun or tell your friends/fam "namastay in tonight and drink some wine"!
