Fall/Winter Looks

Unexpected Holiday Attire

As much as I love tulle skirts and sequins, sometimes I think the best looks for the holidays are the understated, less traditional looks. This floral maxi paired with a faux fur vest fit that bill for me. Add in some lace-up heels and a fun clutch, and I had a look that was party-ready without being too obvious. I wore this look to a holiday party at home with my girlfriends and I got so many compliments on the dress and vest. This dress is a steal at under $25 and so comfy. I rolled the sleeves up but they can be worn unrolled, as well. How do you dress for the holidays in new and different ways?

    personally, I feel like adding fur to anything instantly makes it holiday-esque, whether or not it is traditional! love it.

    I love this maxi! Adding the fur vest was all you needed to make the look holiday ready! Who says you have to wear red and bedazzles!?
