The simple black pencil skirt is professional, but the material is an unexpected black denim. The cami shows enough skin to be sexy; the addition of the cardigan keeps it appropriate for a work function. Gold silk lurex, accented with the gold jewelry is a festive deviation from overplayed red and green.
Of course the office holiday party that I am attending is not taking place on the beach, and I'm not planning on lying down like this unless I have far too many glasses of bubbly. But it's nice to know that I will still look chic should the need to recline arise.
