I want to write about how this is a great Thanksgiving / Holiday dress because of the empire waist and pleated skirt that disguises overeating, but all I can think of is that episode of Friends where Joey borrows Pheobe's maternity pants to eat dinner. If I recall correctly he called them his "turkey eating pants". So, this is a good turkey eating dress. JD gave it to me as a birthday present a couple of years ago and it has steadily been one of my go-tos for holiday dressing. The material is thick and warm despite the short sleeves, while the herringbone pattern and black piping make it more interesting. This time around, I kept things simple with black suede heels and my current favorite sparkly necklace. Once the holidays roll around I seriously cannot get enough of this necklace, I want to wear it with everything. 

What is your holiday go-to?

  9. Love a dress that can hide any and all holiday overeating! Cute outfit!

  10. Ha, empire waists definitely work well for overeating ;) I really like the tweed & sparkle mixed together. I kind of wish we dressed up like this for Thanksgiving but in my family it's always jeans and sweaters. Last year I wore a skirt and everyone asked me why I was so dressed up. Seriously.
