Over the Summer my husband took a new job. He likes it and overall it has been really great for our family. One of the many differences that pertain to me between this job and his last is the Christmas party. At his previous job the holiday party was always cocktail attire, but this year there is NO DRESS CODE listed. It is an afternoon party and I'm guessing everyone will be dressed on the casual side. Honestly this comes as mostly a relief for me because I can dress up but not have to really DRESS UP if you know what I mean?
Anyway I already asked my husband if I can wear whatever I want and he replied with, "Yes, unless you already know I will hate it." So no, I cannot wear whatever I want. (I've tried going the vintage dress route in years past and those are very "husband repelling" at our house. Sometimes hubby's just don't "get" how fantastic a vintage dress or blouse or skirt can be.) So to make this long story short- I think this ensemble would work for this upcoming party. The red and the faux fur vest feel cheery and bright and because this is something I would wear anytime, I know I will be comfortable and feel like myself. (All essentials at a spouse's holiday work party wouldn't you agree?)
So we'll see what I come up with. I will definitely let you in on what I wear and how it goes over with the hubs. What is the dress code for your work party this year? What are you wearing?
