In anticipation of the upcoming holiday here in the U.S., Thanksgiving, I thought I’d do two posts – one with dressy stylings, and the other with more casual stylings. After all, some of you probably have fancy parties to attend while others could wear sweats for all your family cares, but you refuse (thank goodness!). Or, perhaps you have more than one function to attend? Well, whatever the case – maybe you don’t even celebrate Thanksgiving! – I hope you’ll enjoy these posts!
On today’s agenda is the dressy stylings. Make that dressy stylings x3! Enjoy!
Isn’t this dress absolutely fabulous? The polka dots…the feminine silhouette…the ladylike and edginess it manages to balance…the general aire of fun it just evokes?! You don’t need to add much to make this a show stopping outfit – some fabulous pink heels and a clutch which adds copious amounts of texture and a touch of edge do the trick!
This sweet scalloped dress is pumped up a bit with these leopard booties. Needing not much more, a ring finishes off the look. A look like this is perfect for a day filled with stopping at different houses/parties/dinners…it’s modest enough for meet-the-parents but fun enough for your best friends’ gathering too.
You’ll look incredibly fresh and elegant in this nearly head-to-toe black ensemble. The punch of color the clutch adds to the look really does as its name suggests – adds a wow, “fireworks” effect! The effect is unexpected, youthful, and plain fun!
So tell me…which look is your favorite? If you had/have to dress up for this Thanksgiving, which look would you wear? And even if you don’t celebrate Thanksgiving…what look would you wear to a party! I’d love to hear!
It’s a party! Well, kinda. Sorta. Not really. But really it is, just not technically.
You see, there is no literal party that I’m attending. However, I’ve made it through this week, which has been a tough one. As I mentioned in a post the other day, it’s always hard to get back to regular life after a holiday weekend. Add on lots of work and some stress, and you’ve got yourself one tough week. That’s been the story for me this week. Don’t get me wrong…it was in no way a horrible week, and of course it could have been much, much, much worse (thank goodness it wasn’t!), but it just wasn’t the best week ever. I’m hoping some of you can relate to this!
Anyway, back to the party talk. So yes, there is no literal party, but it’s the weekend, and in my book, that calls for a little party in my head after this week! What would I wear if I was actually off to a party tonight/this weekend? Perhaps one of these looks:
Now this is a fun look! The purple tights add such a sense of playfulness to the subtly polka-dotted dress, while the necklace adds the perfect amount of sophistication.
If I had to choose between these two looks, which would I wear? While I like them both, I’m thinking the second one…such a sense of fun it has!
Which would you choose if you were off to a party this weekend?
And what are all of your weekend plans?! Anything exciting??! I know I have a good amount of work I need to complete, but other than that, I’m not quite sure yet! Maybe I’ll meet up with a friend, or prepare for the holidays in some way…
