One of my favorite looks for casual holiday get togethers is a favorite dress with flats. This keeps the dress from being to fancy but signifies the specialness of the occasion. So grab a favorite dress from the back of your closet and put some flats on. I also accentuated with a burgundy suede belt, just to add some merriness. You could also layer a cozy chunky sweater over the top, never knowing what the temperature is going to be like. Grab your favorite sentimental jewelry. and enjoy the season!
Throw your favorite christmas socks in your purse, that way if it's a no shoes required your festively chic, and you don't have to worry about manicured toes.
