Dressing for a holiday party over 40 can be a bit tricky, right Ladies? Usually we want look sparkly and special, but not overdone. We want to look a bit sexy, but also appropriate and sophisticated. And we want to look expensive, but don’t want to waste our money on something we’ll never wear again. And last but not least, we don’t want to have the exact same dress as someone else at the party. I seriously think I’ve found the answer to holiday dressing over 40 at Lynn Ritchie!
I feel so super glam and fabulous in this Lynn Ritchie sequined pencil skirt and sequined cropped jacket. The quality is exceptional and I feel like a million bucks!
I loved styling each piece separately as well! Here I’m making the skirt less dressy by adding boots and an oversized sweater. How often do you find holiday separates that you can wear so many ways?
And even more fun, I wore the jacket with stripes, cropped flares, and trendy booties for a casual and funky outfit. Is it just me, or did I channel some serious Gwen Stefani for this look?!
Lynn Ritchie has so many fabulous pieces in her holiday shop! A couple of special separates can be mixed and matched to keep you looking amazing all through the holiday season!

Thanks so much, Suzanne! 🙂
I know this is supposed to be all about the outfit, dearest Dawn…but OMG!! Your new super-blonde ‘do is STUNNING!! So striking with the ruby red lippy and those party-ready sequinned separates…which – I totally agree! – are the perfect choice for getting you through the entire holiday season in style!! Between the pencil skirt and the bomber jacket, you can mix and match to your heart’s sparkly content…but when you wear them both together?? WOW!! XOXO
Haha fun pictures! I love all outfits and the skirt and jacket together are very feminine! You look like a real vamp!
Wow such fun pictures! I love that this outfit can be broken up and worn together! That’s when you know you have great pieces!
Loving the sequins! Such a fun outfit 🙂

beautiful! Honestly, I’m shocked you’re 50. You look incredible. I totally think older women are still smoking hot and some of you ladies have the most inspiring fashion sense! I’m 27 and I feel like I need to up my game now haha. Thanks for the inspiration!
This comment totally made my day! Adore you, Tianna! 🙂
I’m beginning to feel like the elephant in the room now. When I shop, I honestly never think of any of those things you pointed out, Dawn, like not wanting to look overdone, and striking a balance between sexy, sophisticated and appropriate. To be quite honest, if I see something I like, I just go for it. Now I’m wondering if all those stares were of horror instead of envy GRIN
p/s I love the jacket with jeans!!!
Oh they were envy! You rock everything you wear, Sheela! I should’ve made it clear that these are the things I think about and no one need follow suit!
Really love all these outfits.. but that first one.. perfect! 🙂
Right amount of glitter, sassiness and heels.. looking great! 🙂
