Plaid flannel shirts have been a fast favorite with my wardrobe this fall.  I especially love pairing them with black jeans… as you'll see.  This look is simple and classic and super easy to pull together - all my favorite types of outfits.

Here I pulled together two simple outfit combos using black jeans, plaid tops (red and white, or I love this navy blue version too!) and then switched it up with a few different accessories mixed in like a vest or a faux fur scarf.  These are perfect outfits for the holiday parties or low key events that you can pull together in a snap.

Holiday Style with Nordstrom!

Besides decking the halls and spoiling my loved ones with gifts and treats - the parties have to be one of my favorite parts of the holiday season!  I love getting all dolled up, donning a super fabulous dress and  hitting the town to celebrate the holidays!

Today I am collaborating with Nordstrom to chat holiday party dresses.  Do you have yours yet!?!?

Hands down Nordstrom has the best selection of party dresses this time of year - I mean drool worthy! What is even better is that for all the amazing dresses they carry there truly is something for every budget - which is equally as important.   Nordstrom is your one stop shopping spot for holiday apparel from head to toe.  I recently spent an indulgent amount of time in their dress department shopping and trying on some seriously gorgeous holiday frocks. When I put on this little lace number I instantly knew it was "the one" - you know that feeling!?!? It's like fireworks, best feeling ever.

This little lace number is just a touch stretchy so it's super comfortable wear.  I really loved the zippered back which is super modern while the length and silhouette is very classic. It's the best of both worlds. And the v-neck back makes it super flattering.  This dress is a real winner… here I paired it with neutral heels and a shawl.  But you could also go with black shoes or add a little edge to the look with a leather jacket.

Let's chat quick about these shoes too… because, I'm in love.  The leather is butter, butter soft making them insanely comfortable.  Plus, the nice low heel is perfect for non-heel wearers… like me (since hurting my ankle last spring, heels are almost impossible but these were great! No pain at all!) so if you aren't really into heels but you want to try one for the holidays… this is the pair.  And they come in a ton of colors too!

Now for the look… keep reading below to see my top dress picks for YOUR holiday parties…  Plus, don't forget the Nordstrom Clearance Event is happening right now too… so there are some awesome deals to be had!
