holiday dressing

My family holidays are hardly formal affairs, but I wish they were. Each year I tend to be the only one who decides to get dressed up. I won't give up on it. I will take any excuse to wear a fancy dress and heels, even if I look ridiculous by comparison. So as the holiday season is upon us and Thanksgiving is tomorrow, I'm dreaming of pretty party dresses. I love this emerald green Tibi number, the neckline is so different and I always love a full skirt. For a festive look I'd pair it with these lovely laser cut Reiss heels, a black clutch, and a sparkly bracelet and nail polish. 

Happy Wednesday and thank you so much for reading!


  1. I love those shoes!! I wish I had a practical reason to buy them haha

  4. Butter polish is one of the best!

  5. This dress is perfection! I love the color and shape and that neckline is so flattering! I think I might just be the last person in Blogland who doesn't own a Clare V. clutch...could it be? Loving this simple navy version. It would go with everything! Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving :)
