This and That..Debbie's Stylin' Party Wear!

What I Wore To The Party...
Happy Wednesday dear readers! This evening I'm stylin' by sharing what I wore to a retirement party this evening. My dear friend, Sharon, is retiring from teaching and we were celebrating her retirement in style tonight! 


The venue for the party was decorated to the hilt for Christmas..so beautiful! Many decorated trees, greenery on fireplaces, lights galore! I wanted to be dressy but also casual enough to be comfortable. I chose to wear grey slacks (Rafaella Studio purchased at Stein Mart) with a red sweater (many years old) to add a Christmasy touch. The jacket (Kasper purchased at Stein Mart) is a recent purchase which added some formality to the look and the silver sparkly scarf added a nice holiday touch as well. The scarf was a Christmas gift a few years ago from my oldest sister. 


The four strand faux pearl bracelet added some nice bling to the outfit. It is another Colorado trip purchase...this time from a favorite store of mine located in Estes Park called "White Orchid." 


My little Christmas tree can't hold a candle to the beautiful decorations at the party tonight! But, I still love my little tree and it's a nice backdrop for the photos. Tonight was bittersweet, because I sure will miss my friend, Sharon, at work. But, because we are good friends, we will still be seeing a lot of each other! I wish her much happiness in retirement!

How about you?  Are you attending..or hosting...any parties during the holiday season?  Leave a comment.  I'd love to hear from you!

Until next time,
Debbie
