Can you believe there are only 12 days until Christmas? When I was younger, December seemed like such a long month, but as an adult/parent it flies by! Our house has been hit by two cold viruses in a row, so December has been filled so far with fevers, tissues, and sleepless nights. We are now FINALLY on the mend and hoping to stay well for the holidays!

Last Saturday night was my husband’s company Christmas party, and we enjoyed a few hours out together. I love the look of a dress, but because I really don’t like wearing one, I decided to style pants for the party. I already had a pair of black pants so I just needed to add a dressy shirt or sweater.
Since I am still nursing, tops that fit well through the chest are difficult to find. By ordering a few items from Macy’s, I was able to find a cute sweater that worked for me. The one I chose was the INC Tiered-Sleeve Sweater in the color Hunter Forest. It has pretty, on-trend statement sleeves and also comes in five additional colors: Bright Blue, Deep Black, Port, Real Red, and Washed White. I consider it to be true to size. It isn’t a tight sweater, but it skims the body closely.
The wide-leg dress pants I wore paired well with the sweater since it is form-fitting. I have linked a similar pair of pants below. They are an Everyday Value item at Macy’s, available in regular, petite, and tall sizes, and are priced at $27.98. The INC sweater is on sale today for $39.99 (Reg. $79.50) and ships free (purchases of $25 or more ship free).
I carried a black, kiss-lock clutch that I have owned for several years and have linked a similar one below. The shoes I picked for this outfit were the Tartan D’Orsay Pumps from Old Navy. I LOVE the look of these shoes, but sadly they have already sold out online. Black pumps would also look great with this outfit. I recommend a pointed toe shoe when wearing wide-leg pants. Below I have linked a black pair from Macy’s with good reviews.
To accessorize my outfit I chose my Retro Glam Square-Cut Crystal Necklace in shiny silver (rhodium). It has a lot of sparkle and matching drop earrings are also available. These items are included in the Friends & Family Sale which runs through 12/19 at 1pm EST on my online Chloe and Isabel boutique. Customers get 25% off site wide with the code FFHOL17.
