So when we were supposed to dress in cocktail attire for our team dinner at our last night at Camp Mighty, I was a little stumped because cocktail attire can mean very different things to different people right? What made it harder when packing was that I didn't know the people I would be cocktailing it with. Would they be pretty dressy or err on the side of casual? I decided to pack the ensemble above, a simple black sequin top from Ann Taylor Loft and a black (and yikes, short!) skirt from Zara. As I buzzed around the hotel room to get dressed Saturday night though, the look just didn't feel right. I told Jules about 10 times that it felt too sexy-sexy. The short skirt, the higher heels, the black tights just felt too NY's Eve-ish and, quite frankly, it looked like I was trying too hard.
So I changed into my black jeans from Ann Taylor Loft, which by the way fit amazing and hold up in the wash and haven't faded at all. I think they were $59 and at Gap they're $69. I threw on a blazer, and wore my wedge booties from Target. I instantly felt more comfortable and felt more suited for the casual Palm Springs lifestyle. I was in a rush so I just put my hair up in a bun and did a simple makeup routine of mascara and bright red lips and I was done. I think this might end up being my go-to outfit for holiday parties.
