Holiday Style: The Going Out Top

Alyson of The Modern Savvy talks holiday style

A reader recently asked a great question about what she should wear to an upcoming casual holiday party. Enter: the going out top! Does anyone else still call it this? Reminiscent of my 18-year old college days, I totally still do and love a good going out top and jeans in a serious way.

I was recently at Target and stumbled across this gorgeous top and loved how cute, feminine and flirty it is… and even better at $16.99! I’m totally down for investing in great jeans, heels & for sure have some pricier blouses yet other times, you want to know if you only get a few wears, you haven’t just spent $100+. Cost per wear, cost per wear! This fun top also comes in a solid black print (basically, without the flowers). Next week, I’ll be sharing the “going out sweater” for a similar cute, casual holiday option.

For upcoming holiday parties, consider the accessories, too! These earrings — which come in a million colors! — totally dress up the look, as do a fun heel like this (more fun party shoes here). The block-heel trend in a major winner, especially if you know you’ll be standing or dancing for a few hours…. or longer. 😉 Get it, girl.

By the way, keep the questions — style, life, career, family, vent sesh-related and otherwise — coming! Love knowing that I’m creating content based on what’s most helpful to you.

    This is my kind of dressing up for the holidays! Plus I honestly think it’s the reality for most of us non-cocktail party going girls! Casual dinner parties all the way.
