Every year I look forward to practical holiday party looks, but I also look forward to festive party looks as well. Work Christmas Party vs. Ugly Christmas Sweater Party. Following me? I wanted to create TWO separate looks for you (one super festive and the other one a bit more practical), while still being able to use most of the same pieces for both looks. Because....versatility is your best friend, right? Right.

I picked this lovely plaid miniskirt from ROMWE to be the main item that stays the same for both outfits. Take a look at my two holiday looks below!


So you wanna be festive, huh?!

...Me too, me too!!!

I got this "Oh Deer" fuzzy sweatshirt from Wal Mart in-store. I was unable to find the exact one in red online, but I did find it in black...which is also really fun! They also have several other color options available. You might still be able to find the red one at your local Wal Mart or you can buy the same one in black here for $26. Other festive shirts here or here (this one only $6!)

I paired it with this plaid skirt (wearing a size L for reference, so be sure to size up in this) + basic black tights and my snakeskin booties for some edge. Limited sizing in the booties, so similar here, here and here (use code TAKE50 for 50% off these bad boys)

For the first outfit, I stuck to the colors of red, black and white...but I did add a pop of green with these gorgeous tassel earrings from The Rose and Honey Shop. For ANY earrings from here, you can use code Jodi20 for 20% off and free shipping!! These earrings are totally customizable, meaning you can have them made in any color with however many tassels you want. My earrings have four tassels, but you certainly don't need that many...again, totally customizeable!


So...you have a work Christmas Party?

...Me too! Me too!

Let me just show you how to switch out ONE item for a whole new look! The skirt, tights, booties and earrings are ALL the same, and I literally just switched the shirt. So easy, right?! And cost-effective, yah? Welp, that's what I'm here for, guys.

This is the turtleneck sweater  in black that I wore with this outfit and guys...its incredibly soft, light and NOT itchy. ALSO most importantly it's on sale NOW for only $23 plus free shipping, it will sell out fast!!! I promise! So hurry, hurry, hurry if you like it. I also love the bell-sleeves on it and it comes in four additional colors. #winning

I changed the look a little by tucking the shirt in and it totally works with the skirt, because the skirt is high-waisted. I kept everything else the same. I also added this cute little purse in red (ON SALE for $12 now!!!) Same purse is also available in black here, but full price. Red is cuter in my opinion ;) Totally crushing on red SO hard this season, as you can tell from my Instagram feed. Anyone else?

So, there ya have it! Two holiday looks using the same item and literally only switching one thing out. Easy peasy, right!? Which outfit did yall like the best? Festive or practical?


  • PS..I may be hosting a Holiday Giveaway on Instagram today, so be sure and hop on over there.
  • Bonus Material: I have linked LOTS of turtleneck sweaters under $50 here if you're on the hunt for something to keep you warm and cozy for the holidays! PS...all are free shipping! Hurry because these sale items go quickly!
  • Comment below #1 or #2 and tell me also if you're done with your holiday shopping or not! I am not...eek! Where my procrastinators at? Ha!
  • I will most likely be heading over to Amazon in the coming weeks to finish up my holiday shopping and to get that free two-day shipping with my Prime account. Searching for a unique gift for that hard-to-shop-for person? Try using the button at the top of the Amazon page where it says "New & Interesting Finds on Amazon", click Explore and it will give you TONS of unique gift ideas for that special person! I just recently discovered this and it's genius! Makes it SO easy to shop!


Happy Holidays, guys! Have a great rest of the week! 


xoxo, jodi
