Holiday Party #2

A couple of days ago I posted a holiday party outfit that I plan to wear this weekend, but this is an outfit I wore last weekend to a holiday party for the leaders at my church.  My church is super duper casual--(it started in the late 80s by a bunch of ex-hippies, and there are still traces of that in our DNA!  haha)--so I tried to dress up in a casual way.  Oxymoron, anyone?  

I went with a jewel toned turquoise top and used one of my favorite colors to pair turquoise with--red!  On another note, yes, I wore a short sleeved top to our holiday Christmas party.  Welcome to Southern California.

    Hippie church sounds awesome! I love a casual church. It puts the focus on what is really important. In my opinion :) I love this color on you!! -Rachel (ftb)

  2. Ohhh so that it's subtly holiday themed...hmm is that another oxymoron? :)

  3. Turqouise and red looks so great together!  Love your top :)

  4. Haha!  I'm too cold for short sleeves in Arizona!  Send some of that heat our way okay?  Love the fancy/casual look :)

  5. Love love love that top. You look gorgeous!

  6. What a precious outfit. I love it. Such a pretty color on you.

    Id love for you to check out my blog and follow.Let me know and Ill follow back.


  7. You look gorgeous! I love the turquoise and red combo!

  8. Great color! I know exactly what you mean by dressing up in a casual way and wish I could achieve the casual/dressy look everyday.

  9. That is a gorgeous Teal Blouse, it fits you beautifully. It looks like it's silk also. Love the clutch, red peep-toes, earrings & necklace too. All of these pieces dress it up for sure. This could be a great outfit for an Engagement Dinner, a Birthday Party, the Club, A Girls' Night's Out. Really, the possibilities are ENDLESS!!
