It’s been some time since I’ve posted here on the blog, or on my Instagram for that matter. I’ve been feeling some changes in me & needed some time to figure out exactly what they meant for me & my life. Don’t worry, I’ll be filling you guys in on what’s been going on in my head & heart soon.
But until then..I’m back! Not only am I back, but I’m sharing with you the dreamiest toile dress I’ve been wearing to death that’s under $20! Scroll to see more…
Now that the weather is starting to feel more like fall, I’ve been playing around with how to wear this gorgeous toile dress into the colder months. My favorite way has to be with a pair of knee high boots, a beret, & my classic trench coat over top. You could also wear it with black tights, heels, & a fluffy faux fur coat to dress things up a bit. Either way, you better believe I’ll be wearing this many times in the coming months. I can’t pass up this dreamy, classic print!
The weather is definitely starting to get cooler here in Richmond. I had my first hot chocolate last week while picking out our Christmas tree & haven’t stopped drinking them since. It was on that same cold day last week when I told Ben that the first really cold day of the season hits me hard. It’s like I forget how the bitter cold feels every year. But how could I forget?!
Even though it’s getting colder & colder everyday, this season brings about the most parties & events. Which means we need party outfits that will help you stay warm(er) in the cold. This outfit is very festive with a bit of shine & a bow, but it’s pink from head to toe. I love wearing pink for the holidays. It’s a great way to take a break from the red & green all around. Let’s get into all the festive bows & velvet for this holiday season.
More Bows Please
Ever since I was a child, I have loved bows. I used to wear bows in my hair every single day. The bigger the better. Don’t get me wrong, I still love bows in my hair, but now I’ve fallen in love with wearing bows on my clothes, not just in my hair. They are the perfect feminine touch to any outfit.
Bows feel especially festive this time of year. Maybe it’s from seeing all of the presents wrapped up in bows, I don’t know. All I know is my love for bows is through the roof this time of year. Because of this, when I saw this dainty bow silk cami, I knew I would wear it time & time again. I also have recently purchased this amazing pair of bow earrings that I’m literally obsessed with. You just can’t go wrong with a good bow.

Pile On The Velvet
Isn’t velvet just the dreamiest material? It just feels so good! Not only does it feel good, It does a great job of keeping you warm, too. This is precisely why this pink velvet pleated midi skirt is just perfect for the holiday season. It’s so cozy & flattering to wear while also looking fancy & festive. I also paired this look with a pair of pink velvet heels, although I would highly recommend bringing a pair of fuzzy slippers in the car to wear before & after the event.
I have honestly never thought of lavender as a fall color before. I’ve always just seen it as a happy spring shade, but I have been seeing it in a new light as of late. As you all know, I’ve been playing around with different colors in my wardrobe lately, & I’m totally loving how this lovely lavender shade is pairing with some of my favorite fall tones. Let me show you what I mean.
One way to integrate lavender into your fall wardrobe is to mix it with other classic fall tones. Lavender plays well with navy, gold, & camel, but a new combination that I am so excited about it lavender & burgundy. As you know from my recent post, burgundy is one of my very favorites to wear in the fall, so opening the door to mixing it with this gorgeous lavender color is creating so many new outfits for me.

Here is a sneak peek into my lavender infused outfits for this fall:
This Blogmas post is all about finding the perfect holiday dress for your upcoming parties & events! Whether it’s a work event, or a holiday date night, finding the right look can help you feel extra confident & festive. As you know, I am a firm believer that pink is a totally holiday color, but a little red dress, a dark green dress, or anything that sparkles & shines is sure to make a statement at your next Christmas party. I’ll show you two of my favorites in my collection & also roundup the best of the best holiday dresses out there right now.
The first dress is this amazing dark green velvet pleated midi dress. This was one of those, you see it & buy it immediately kind of dresses. Once it arrived, & I tried it on, I instantly felt all the old Hollywood glamour vibes & quickly paired it with my art deco t-strapped heels & a bright red lip. My long faux fur stole seemed like the perfect addition to this look.
Velvet dresses are a lovely choice for your next holiday event. This time of year is my favorite time to wear this luxurious fabric. It catches light so well & brings extra warmth which is much appreciated on cold winter nights. I am loving this red velvet wrap dress at the moment, as well as this pink option. *swoon*
Then there’s my very special red dress. I actually bought this dress in Paris this past summer, & it’s one of my most beloved & sentimental pieces in my wardrobe. The bows on the straps are such a sweet touch to this already gorgeous red dress. My fuzzy coat (last seen here) just fits with this dress & brings all the warmth necessary. I just picture it with a bold red lip & a champagne gold sparkly eye. Can’t you just see it?!
Bows are such a fun touch to your holiday look. Try one with a bow back like this one, or this one with a sparkly bow right on the front. It’s the perfect feminine touch.
