What to Wear When You Are The Party Planner

Dressed up in burgundy wine and navy blue lace by Maggy London to plan this season's holiday party - it is important to look and feel good as the host!

 

Party Planner Style

This time of year is the most magical, in my opinion, especially thanks to all of the festive holiday parties coming up! I love the Christmas season because everyone is in a cheerful, celebratory and giving spirit. With lots of holiday events coming up, there is always the question of what to wear! And that looming question mark is often amplified when you are the party planner! Since there are often lots of last minute little things to take care of around the house (or venue), you’ll surely want to be comfortable so you can stay nimble. That being said, it is important to make sure you feel feminine and beautiful in what you are wearing – since you are the host after all!

I’ve found this burgundy and navy lace dress to be the perfect combination of both of those elements. Plus, the dress itself has lots of character, which makes for minimal accessorizing!

Burgundy & Navy Lace

Both navy and burgundy are beautiful colors for the holiday season, in part because they are a bit unexpected this time of year. I’ve actually loved to wear navy to holiday parties for a few years now since it breaks away from classic black, makes a statement, but is not too over-the-top. Plus, you can never go wrong with a deep burgundy wine color – one of my favorites of all time!

Fur and Flannel Cozy Holiday Style

New England Holiday Style

For today’s post, I’m thrilled to be partnering with cabi to style a holiday party look! To see the full feature on cabi’s blog, check out this link. I put together this festive, yet warm and cozy look for the party season. Here in Boston, temperatures drop, and boy do they drop fast! We’ve already dipped below 30 degrees around here, and as a girl who does not like to be cold, I always make sure to bundle up. I chose a red and black plaid flannel button down with ruffles for its dressy, yet cozy vibe, which I paired with a simple black skirt.

Dressed Up or Dressed Down

What I love about this combo is that it can be dressed up or dressed down with different accessories for almost any winter occasion. For a more casual vibe, wear it with opaque tights or leggings and leather boots. For a dressier look, I chose sheer patterned tights and pointed lace up pumps. Also, because you can never have too many layers this time of year, I opted for the cabi’s cozy, chic faux fur vest. This not only ups the ante of this holiday look, but it also helps ensure I stay cozy warm wherever the season takes me!

Versatile Elegance with Tri-Tone Lace

Seasonal Elegance

As the holiday seasons starts to ramp up fully over the next couple of weeks, I will bet that you may need a dress or two, whether it be for an evening cocktail/dinner party or a daytime soiree. Although I love my holiday reds and truly plan on embracing them this festive season (like with this dress), some events just call for a more toned-down look. As the Maggy London brand ambassador this fall/winter season, I’ve been having fun trying out lots of the different styles. What I love most about Maggy is that I can rely on the styles to be elegant and form flattering, yet still on trend! There really is something for every occasion!

Tri-Color Lace

This time of year is quite magical, despite the colors of the earth turning brown and gray. The crisp air carries some extra energy with it, and in my opinion, it is most certainly the spirit of Christmas. Now, while I don’t believe there is such a thing as starting Christmas decor too early, I also feel it is important to be sensitive for non-holiday themed events. My sister’s birthday is the last day of November (happy birthday, Abbey!!), and my mom always waits until it has passed to start decorating for Christmas. Despite this, we have all been listening to Christmas music since August (my car syncs with my phone and starts playing holiday tunes right away every time I start the car…don’t ask me why).

This multi-tonal lace of navy, burgundy, and purple embody those rich, bold hues we have come to associate with fall, while offering a festive transition into the holiday season! Plus, it doesn’t hurt that the cinched-waist sheath style is super flattering. I suppose I should let you be the judge on that last bit,,,but I certainly felt great in this number!
