This outfit encompasses all things I love: bows, metallics, and holiday style.

Being in a large family, having in-laws, and having step-partents, makes for LOTS of holiday parties. This happens yearly, and with our ever growing family (my cousins are all in their "baby making" years now), we get together a week or two before Christmas to see my mom's entire side of the family.
It's hard enough to see all the sides of our families between Christmas Eve & Christmas day so this takes a bit of stress off of most of us. Want to see what I wore to previous 1st Christmas parties? Check out my previous looks here, herehere & here.

This year I kept my look holiday chic. Honestly, this was almost my NYE dress but I decided last minute to swap it out when I learned my hubby was too sick to attend the party with us. If you're going to be running around after kids, bending up & down a lot to help with gifts, and carrying lots of items in & out, the outfit needs to be practical (but still cute).
This metallic number did the trick. The neckline stayed in place and the hemline was long enough to not flash any family! ;)
 I added lots of items with bow details, red and green, and then finished my look with this stunning teal coat.

What do you wear to your holiday parties? Do you attend as many parties as my family does?
