Gallery Opening and Celeb Style Inspiration

Last night I went to a fun art gallery opening at Gallery 319 featuring art of and by musicians and sports figures.  I especially loved this painting of Vin Scully:

I wore all black to this event, my go-to look when I’m not sure what to wear.  I’m trying to incorporate more color into my outfits these days but I always fall back on black.  Tonight is my boyfriend’s office holiday party and I still have no idea what I’m wearing but I am trying to put a more colorful look together.  Here’s yet another Olsen style inspiration:

I think it’s very cute and quite different from what I usually wear.  Here’s my take on it:

I liked how it turned out but it doesn’t seem ‘festive’ enough for tonight’s holiday party so I’m back to the drawing board.

What are your ‘go-to’ looks for holiday parties? I’ve got quite a few to attend over the next couple of weeks (including three in one day next Saturday) so any ideas would be most welcome!  xoxo
