We are now in the full swing of getting ready for Christmas and I’m sure you all are invited to holiday parties.  I sometimes find it a daunting task to figure out what to wear, especially in casual Austin, for that in between, casual party look which can be tough to maneuver.  A party dress may too much, a formal dress is not appropriate, jeans are way too casual, so what the heck to wear!

This featured outfit from Stein Mart is a nice, bright and festive answer for that kinda casual but need to be a little dressier party look.  I am a sucker for pants and these are shimmery, comfy and fun.  I know you want to know more about that pink jacket.

Being a southern gal for more than 30 years, wearing bright colors is certainly never a problem for me.  I know this for a fact when I traveled to New York Fashion Week, which is typically a non-stop week of seeing people wear head to toe black.  When I saw this pink jacket on the rack I thought how fun it would be to wear this to a holiday party or even pair it with casual jeans and black boots. I love the silver grommets and simple shape as well.  My large black Jessica Simpson bag is a must for carrying extra gifts or opt for a clutch.

Instead of fretting over what to wear to your next holiday party it may be as simple as wearing something comfortable with a lot of color!  I hope you all have fun this holiday season wearing fun cute, casual and comfy outfits to make your holiday season bright.
