Snow boots and a gutsy belt go hand-in-hand. And yes, I wear a skirt when it snows.

Boss Lady has invited me for holiday dinner after work. How do I look festive without looking like an idiot during the day? Solution: Start with one piece that's 'glam' and keep the rest of the ensemble idiot-proof.
