This past weekend Sears opened its newest location at the Ala Moana Center in Honolulu, which just so happens to be my go-to shopping mall in Hawaii! The new store is located in the Mauka wing and while it is an appliance and mattress store, I’m still able to shop for women’s clothing, shoes and accessories online and have them sent to the Ala Moana store where I can pick them up thanks to their Buy Online and Ship to the Store program. Members can order items online and send to their local Sears or Kmart store for in-store pickup which is such a great feature and definitely takes a lot of stress away from holiday shopping. Sears is also giving their members the option to choose to have their items brought out to them by using Sears’ innovative In-Vehicle Pickup service. In addition to being able to pick up in-store, Sears members can now order any item on Sears.com or Kmart.com and send a friend or family member to pick up the purchase. This is huge! So great for sending gifts to family members and friends who live out of state. Also just in time for the holiday shopping season, Sears just re-launched their iconic Wish Book, which can be shopped online or via any mobile device at sears.com/wishbook, as well as through the Sears app. It’s a great place to get even more holiday inspiration!
In honor of the new Ala Moana store opening and all of the amazing holiday shopping features at Sears, I’m excited to be partnering with Sears to share five holiday party outfits to get you through the season in style. The holiday season can be hectic; there are festive parties, holiday dinners, work events, cookie decorating parties…the list goes on. While your social calendar is likely filling up for the season I’m sure you’ve started to wonder what you’re going to wear to each of these different events, I’ve rounded up some of my very favorite pieces from Sears and styled them into casual looks, dressy looks and everything in between!
Look 1 // CHRISTMAS PARTY
Along with being the perfect color to wear during the holiday season, red is also a huge trend right now. I absolutely love this little red dress! It’s simple, chic and has the most beautiful flutter sleeves. Dress it up with a sassy pair of heels, simple jewelry, and a classic wrap and you’re Christmas party ready!
Look 2 // COCKTAIL PARTY
I love that this outfit is slightly more casual than most cocktail party outfits while still being incredibly trendy. It’s the perfect outfit to go from cocktail party to dinner date. This black poncho with the leopard trim is so fun and can just as easily be worn over a dress as it can over jeans!
Look 3 // OFFICE PARTY
When it comes to office holiday parties I like to keep things more conservative but with that being said it’s a great time to add different colors and/or textures to your outfit. This metallic pleated skirt is a great option (perfect midi length!) and is unexpected yet classy when paired with a lace blouse. Finish the look with velvet pumps and gold jewelry!
Look 4 // COOKIE DECORATING PARTY
A casual outfit like this one is a necessity for the holiday season. It’s festive, on trend and perfect for daytime parties or low-key gatherings. This embellished bomber jacket is a great layering piece and can be worn all season long. A festive plaid scarf and red velvet flats make this classic look perfect for the holidays!
Look 5 // DINNER PARTY
This is an outfit that I would wear over and over again throughout the fall and winter. A great sweater dress (with the cutest bell sleeves!) paired with a plaid poncho and neutral accessories. It doesn’t scream holiday which makes it’s ideal for dinner parties and mid-week events.
And on top of that, Sears just announced that they’ll be doing a month-long storewide “Holiday Blowout” promotion, which is happening until Nov. 25 with 10-50% off everything (in-store or online)!
Happy Holiday Shopping!
