What to Wear to an Office Holiday Party

What to Wear to an Office Holiday Party | Purple Holiday Dress | Formal Holiday Attire via Dallas fashion blogger Glitter & Spice

If your schedule is anything like mine these next few weeks, it’s filled to the brim with holiday season fun. Here’s what I have planned thus far:

Wednesday: holiday shopping event, hosted by my friend Whitney.

Thursday: my company’s casual holiday party.

Friday: holiday dinner with friends.

Saturday: my annual holiday party / my first holiday party at my new house.

And that’s just the next five days. Next week is even worse (read: every night).

But really, all of that is nothing. In years past, I’ve been a +1 to many a friend’s office holiday party – sometimes packing as many as five fiestas into a two-week period. And in college it was even worse with all of the formals and date parties. It’s a wonder I studied at all.

Basically all of that is to say I now really have figuring out what to wear to an office holiday party nailed down pat. And I’m going to share my Jedi-level holiday attire wisdom with all of you today. Get excited.

Oh and PS all of my looks can be found at Nordstrom. So if you have a holiday party this week, go ahead and click to order online as you can just pick it up in store!

What to Buy on Prime Day 2018 (and What I Bought!)

Best Amazon Prime Day 2018 Deals | What to Buy on Amazon Prime Day | Best Dresses on Sale Right Now via fashion blogger Glitter & Spice

Happy Amazon Prime Day! The deals launched yesterday at noon Pacific time (2PM Central)… and since I wrote this blog post last night at around 8:30PM, there are probably a whooooole lotta deals I’m missing in my roundup that launched while I was sleeping! You can shop all of the deals by clicking here. Andddd you can shop the rest of my picks (again, all sourced last night so I might be missing a few!) here.

Before we dive in: you might recognize the location for today’s photos. Yep, these photos were taken when I went to Versailles last month. Why am I posting a LOFT dress taken at Versailles for Amazon Prime Day? Because today’s pretty much the closest I get to feeling like a pretty pretty princess / a big spender all year.

Vacuum? Add to cart. New TV? Pish posh, let’s do it – it’s basically free. Okay that brings my total to about 40% less than I had budgeted… so let’s grab a few more things BECAUSE WE CAN.

Or is that not how y’all shop?

What to Buy in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (and What's on My Wishlist) by Dallas fashion blogger, Glitter & Spice

Okay. I’m only 12 hours behind schedule. No big deal.

In case you haven’t been on Instagram at all today, today marks the beginning of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. That’s right, friends: if you’re a Nordstrom cardholder, you can now shop the sale via Early Access. If you’re not a cardholder, don’t fret: you’ll be able to shop the sale starting on July 20th! (just make sure you bookmark this post so you can refer to it later!)

I spent the majority of yesterday shopping the sale early and photographing all of my purchases to share with y’all over the coming weeks. And then today has been filled with me attempting to balance back-to-back appointments with one of the busiest shopping days of the year. To help y’all out, I went through every single page of the sale and saved everything I think you should buy in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (or at least consider) so y’all can shop it on your own time in the coming weeks.

My Summer Workwear Essentials + a Nordstrom Giveaway

My Summer Workwear Essentials via Dallas fashion blogger Glitter & Spice

I’m back from Europe! I returned to Dallas yesterday afternoon after one full month abroad. I had the most amazing trip. It truly cemented my belief that I could honestly travel 24/7 without a home base and be as happy as a clam. Even though I’m a total homebody at heart.

Sadly, I can’t be an eternal traveler… yet. But bright side: me coming home means I’ll hopefully start posting on the blog with at least some degree of regularity (BTW I swear I tried – I can’t even tell y’all how many times I fell asleep editing photos or writing the past few weeks!).

The reason why I had to return is I’m starting my full-time job (the one I mentioned here) in just 2 short weeks! That means it’s time for me to dig all of my summer workwear essentials out from the shadowy depths of my closet. And to get this girl who wakes up at 11AM used to waking up at 6:30AM. Oomf. So not ready for that one.
