I can’t believe it’s only a couple of weeks before Christmas and I couldn’t be any more excited especially since I love attending family gatherings and holiday parties. Because what’s not to love about them? It’s the best time to spend time and catch up with friends and family or to get to know the people you work with every day a little bit more; it’s the season of gift giving, and not to mention that the holiday decorations are so pretty!

That said, we have our holiday party in the office today; nothing fancy, just a casual one. So I decided to share with you what I’ll be wearing to give you a little inspiration on what to wear with yours.

I’m all about anything festive for Christmas; and my red plaid mini skirt is just perfect for that. I’ve always loved the classic pairing of a black top with a red plaid skirt; but instead of pairing my plaid mini skirt with a traditional plain black top, I’ve decided to pair mine with a sparkly black sweater to add a bit of interest into my outfit. And my black over the knee (OTK) boots that I’ve told you about in 5 Essential Items Every Woman Must Have For Winter arrived just in time and worked really great with this look.

You know what’s the best thing about this look? It’s the fact that I didn’t have to buy new outfit for myself; the sweater and plaid mini skirt are pieces that I’ve had for years. Don’t you just love that? So don’t hesitate to re-use anything from your closet, you’ll never know what cute outfits you can come up with.

I’ve linked up my favorite skirts that are perfect for your holiday party. Enjoy shopping!
