Office Holiday Party Ensembles with Macy's and ShopStyle

This season Macy's and ShopStyle teamed up with 15 bloggers to compile Macy's Holiday Spotlight, which is a collection of curated lists to help with all of your holiday needs.  Between things like holiday beauty tips, the best holiday accessories, gift ideas for stylish moms, gifts for guys(!!!), and styling and party tips, Macy's Holiday Spotlight packs a crazy punch to put you at ease this season.

Each blogger was asked to curate one of the lists, and I had the honor of shopping Macy's apparel and creating a list for Office Holiday Party Ensembles!

Below is a sneak peek at my list:

five  |  six  |  seven
eight  |  nine  |  ten  |  eleven

My goal was to choose pieces that created festive outfits while still being professional.  Even though it's a party, you still want to maintain a level of professionalism since it's among your co-workers and colleagues.

Of course, I stuck with pieces that were around $50 or under.  I also wanted pieces that could serve multiple purposes, so I chose simple, tailored pieces that could be worn for work or be easily kicked up a notch with the right accessories.  I went with jewel tones like burgundy, emerald, and turquoise as a sophisticated way to add color.  Mix pieces with festive details like lace, sequins, and prints with your classic office basics to create a holiday outfit without having to buy an entirely new outfit!

This is just a tinnnyyyy slice of the items I chose!  To see the rest of my Office Holiday Party Ensemble choices and to get more help with the holidays from other bloggers, check out the Macy's Holiday Spotlight!

  1. i could see myself wearing all of these pieces!! :)

    Sandy a la Mode

  2. Love the navy sequined top! That's a nice one to put under a blazer to make it appropriate then loose the blazer after work for going out.

  3. Liking all of these pieces, especially the navy top

  4. Great choices Audrey! When I think of holiday outfits, sparkles, sequins, and metallics come to mind and I see plenty of that here. I really need to add a sequined top to my closet.

  5. I love the leopard skirt! I need one ASAP. I'd wear it for day wear and add sequins for night! You pick such universally appealing items. I'm thicker and short, but I could see me wearing most of these!

  6. I'm so glad to hear that, Lauren! Hope you have a great Thanksgiving :)

  7. Absolutely love your blog, Audrey. #10 is my favorite of the bunch !

  8. I love all the clothes, but you can't miss a luxury hermes birkin handbag to complete this style. I know a website macybags dot com which sells cheap but high quality luxury handbags. Just check this out.

  9. Love your choices!! Looks like such a fun thing to do!

  10. Amazing!!! your blog help me a lot...thanks :)

  11. This is really helpful. Do you have any advice about packing blazers for plane trips? I've worn mine the past couple of flights, but that's really not comfy for long flights.

  12. ok yes, this IS the post I was looking for! If only I would have seen this last week. Anyway, I have Christmas coming up and I'd like to try then, especially so I can go with a suitcase half-full to account for shopping/presents/goodies from my mom :)

    you're a genius girl, pinned both both images!

    perfectly priya

  13. I have been referring to all your mix and match posts to help me pack for an 8 day trip in two cities - freezing 20 degree Chicago and 50+ degree San Fran (they are back to back flights). All in a carry on and personal bag nonetheless! I've been staring at and pairing down my selection every night - seeing how many outfits I would really wear. However, not all my pants can be tucked into my brown boots (so I'm bringing a few more shoes). Thank you for sharing your knowledge!

  14. Hey Audrey! I'm kind of in a pickle- I'm leaving in 2 weeks for a 3 week trip to Tokyo (for 2 days where it will be in the 40s) and Thailand (where it will be in the 90s). I am limiting myself to one mid-sized suitcase, and am not sure how to minimize what I pack since I will need both cold and warm clothes, and, how to do the least amount of laundry, since I will sweat. Any suggestions? I can not figure out how to do cold without boots, but I really don't want to lug boots around Thailand (we are traveling a lot, most of it is not a beach trip), it seems bad enough I will have to lug a jacket around (can't see a way to avoid this one). I want to look cute, but also be practical, meaning socks with flats are a terrible idea, but I don't want to freeze my patootie off.

    Any suggestions? Thanks a million!

  15. Oh goodness, that sounds like a big puzzle. I don't know if there's any way around not packing boots when it's in the 40s. The best I can think of is ankle boots which would take up less space, and you just suffer a bit more with your calves being colder in Tokyo.

    The only other thing I can think of is lots and lots of layering. Finding pieces that would work in the 90s that you can pile other clothes onto when you're in Tokyo.

    When we were in Thailand, even though we had access to laundry services, my husband brought a liquid soap from REI that could be used for shampoo as well as to wash clothes in a sink. It's so hot in Thailand that the clothes air dry really fast.

  16. Short black biker leather jacket - Great


  17. This is so beautiful!
    I absolutely adore your hair, and I love that jacket. :)
