Holiday Season and Party OOTDs

December is no doubt the season for parties! It is also the season where most of us let ourselves go for the meantime because we just can’t help it! Food is just everywhere! Who can resist? But Personally though I knew I didn’t want to let myself go and have to keep watch on my diet because I have to look good on my OOTDs for all those holiday parties I will be attending! HAHAHA! Call me vain, but who wouldn’t want to look amazing on every outfit? Well I tried! So here are my top three favorite #OOTD from the different Holiday Parties I attended.

The Leopard Printed Romper

I am always skeptical about wearing rompers as I am afraid I’d end up looking like an overgrown baby! Rompers can be tricky so it is really important that you know how to style it, choose the right romper and pull it off and come out sophisticated. Here’s mine! Wore this during our Bloggers Thanksgiving dinner and Clubbing later part of the night.

The Weekend – What I Wore

It was the weekend and what better way to spend it than being with loved ones in an awesome (at least for me) outfit to go with the fabulous day! For the weekend back to back #OOTD I opted for both black but with a little touch something else to complete the look.

Feeling a bit relaxed with this Black/Pink Margarita Jumpsuit I bought from an online store owned by a friend. I love how soft and flowy the cloth feels. My first time to sport a jumpsuit so I wanted to be safe with the classic black one piece as it flatters one’s body type and builds confidence! Add a belt to de-frump a shapeless onesie.

Decided to play elegantly safe on a Sunday with a Little Black Dress (LBD) going to church and lunch date after with my boys. Notice the same belt I used with the jumpsuit? It is becoming a favorite! Stayed light on makeup with the “No makeup, makeup look” and please forgive my eyebags as I have been having trouble getting enough sleep lately ^_^
LBD: Old Navy
Shoes: Ellie
Bag: Donkie Mania
