Happy Thursday! I am in full Christmas spirit over here, with today through Saturday being my last official work days, and taking all next week off for Holiday party fun! During the holidays, there are so many get-togethers and gatherings; from "casual" dinners where you don't really know how casual to actually be, to "dressy" parties and more. Today I'm bringing you some holiday and New Year's party inspiration with two colors that will never let you down when it comes to festive frocks :: BLACK + GOLD. The best part? Almost all of the looks are on SALE, and you can still get them in time for Christmas and New Years.


This top is so much fun; it's currently sold out online but you can find it in your local Nordstrom. I've also linked several other similar fun tops below.

You can never go wrong with coated denim. It adds that extra sheen to black skinnies that make them ultra-versatile and more dressy.

These are my FAVORITE pumps because they're so flattering and the color is the perfect pop in the winter months. And yes, they're on sale!

These earrings scream holiday fun.

These jacquard pants are magical{and 40% off}; if you don't go metallic in your top, try it on the bottom! They are classic and timeless and the perfect holiday staple. 

Okay, these Clarks pumps are some of the comfiest shoes I own. I love the chunky heel.

Detailing on this top makes it look more dressy, but it still feels comfortable and is practical for non-party wear, too.

Enter, jacquard pants in a skirt version! I popped a black fur vest ontop and paired with these fun dotted tights and my go-to black heeled boots.
