The holidays have officially kicked off… and I no longer have to be shy about having my holiday decor up and jamming to Christmas music (this started early November), haha! It really is the best time of the year, so I like to get the party started a little earlier than most. 😉 Speaking of parties, I am excited to be partnering with Express today to share an easy and attainable holiday look with to get you holiday party ready! This ruched sweater dress, faux fur leopard coat and black crossbody bag are pieces that you can also easily style after the holidays, too! The best part? Everything at Express is currently 50% off + FREE shipping for Cyber Week, so you can snag these babies at a major discount! Express is easily one of my favorite retailers to shop at, and it has been over the past 10+ years. They have everything from party attire, to office wear, to loungewear, to jeans (one of my favorite brand of jeans in the world), to jewelry and accessories, to men’s wear!
Let’s start with the most eye-catching piece of this holiday party ready look – this faux fur leopard coat! It’s no secret that leopard is a huge trend this year, and it’s not going anywhere anytime soon. I am a huge fan of the trend, and think this coat is fun and chic! Since it’s a bit of a statement piece, I kept the rest of my look very neutral. This coat runs true to size – I am wearing a small. It’s not super heavy, so a great option for going out! Right now, you can get the coat for $114 (originally $228)!
A good, ruched sweater dress is a MUST HAVE for the holidays. The ruching makes for a flattering fit (so you can eat all the holiday cookies), and a very bump-friendly option! It runs true to size. I have a small, and it comes in a few more colors, including a dark green, mauve, and heather gray. Originally $69, and on sale for $34.95! If you are in between sizes, size up. I also recommend sizing up if you are in your 3rd trimester of pregnancy.
My little crossbody bag is actually the 2nd one I own from Express – I also have the taupe color they had this fall! It’s a great dupe for a popular designer bag, and it’s the perfect size for holiday parties and going out. Large enough for your essentials (phone, cards, lip color), and small/lightweight enough to not be a nuisance to wear on your shoulder all night. The strap is adjustable too! Originally $65, and marked down to $32.50 today!
