Today I am so happy that Mary Ann, Annie, and I are joined by Janet from The Gardeners Cottage, Joni from Cote de Texas, Kim from Northern California Style, and Brenda from Brenda Kinsel for our Holiday Fashion Edit. I am featuring two foundation pieces, an inexpensive tulle skirt, and the J Crew Peyton Velvet Pant. Let’s check out how you can combine them with versatile pieces you already own for a “desk to drinks” outfit. Whether it is a family get together, a simple dinner date with friends or a more formal occasion I have you covered. Here’s how to translate your Holiday look from Day to Night. Use what you have and add some inexpensive jewelry to create a festive holiday look without breaking the bank
Here I am wearing a mustard turtleneck I have owned for years, an old J Crew Calf Hair belt with the J Crew Peyton Velvet Pant, and the Remy calf hair slides from Madewell. I added tortoise hoops and my horn bracelets for a great daytime look.
For my night time look, I pulled on my tulle skirt, added a suede obi belt, pinned on a vintage rhinestone brooch, added some chicos (and one of my own) rhinestone bangles, and some new earrings from Chicos (whoops one is missing misplaced it while modeling!!). It’s rough being a granny model.

In my next look, I am pairing the Peyton Velvet Pant (these are amazing by the way they look fab and feel like jammies), with an old gray turtleneck, the fabulous j crew cashmere wrap, some bracelets I already own, and my french sole gaga flats.
For the nighttime look, I added my gorgeous necklace from Parham and Co, inexpensive Chicos earrings (they have great holiday earrings by the way), an old calf hair clutch, and the silent D boots form Anthro (they are stretchy so they work with bunions and they are very comfortable even with a heel).
GET THE LOOK DAY TO NIGHT HOLIDAY STYLE
I don’t know about you but we rarely (well never) go anywhere during the holidays where I need to dress formally. Here are five looks with the fabulous Peyton Velvet pant that you could wear to work or out for the evening. Did I mention I am in love with these pants, I had no idea I would be such a fan when I ordered them.
Here I am pairing the velvet Peyton pant with a shirt made from vintage lace fabrics from Tancredi and Morgen (over 20 years old), a vintage rhinestone pin, Chicos earrings, a vintage rhinestone bracelet and a couple of chicos stretch bracelets (love these too).
Another piece I picked up this year is the Anthropologie Cashmere Poncho. It comes in five colors including a gorgeous raspberry. I purchased it on sale. I think I may use my birthday discount and get the black as well. It is beautifully made. I am wearing it with its ribbed button turtleneck (another favorite from a previous post). It is back in stock now ladies. The quality is amazing and it is very slimming. I am combining this with my horn bracelets, and inexpensive tortoise earrings. I think this look is dressy enough for most gatherings and you could wear it to work as well.
In this next look, I am pairing the Peyton velvet crop with a favorite Crew sweater (also recommended in an earlier post), my target leopard scarf that I have had for several years, my coin bracelet from Etsy, and those great stretch bracelets from Chicos.
In this last look, I styled the Peyton pant with a vintage leather jacket, the ribbed turtleneck from Anthro featured in a previous post, the Remy mules, and my own Jewelry. All items that are available are linked below.

Don’t be afraid to pair the high and the low. My beautiful necklaces are both gifts from my husband. I would not invest a lot of money on anything too glitzy or holiday-specific. Save your money for accessories that you can wear year-round. FYI the earrings and bracelets are on sale at Chicos right now.
