What I Wore: Dressing Up for the Holidays.

When it comes to the holiday season, one of the things 
I love most, are all of the parties and get togethers. I love how it gives us a reason to celebrate and be together. And I love the excuse to dress up a little more then I typically would.

I fell in love with this ultra girly, school girl type dress from an online boutique called Ever+Mi.Crush.
It is filled with some of the most beautiful and fun pieces I have seen. A perfect blend of feminine and vintage. And I had just the reason to wear this dress to my sister in laws birthday dinner party.

The details on this dress totally make it..the peter pan collar, black lace trim, little bows...And pockets!  

Who doesn't love a dress with pockets!

Darker black tights made me feel a little better with the length, since I don't normally wear shorter dresses. Especially with kids. But since this was a kid-less night, I decided I was safe ;)

I also chose black suede wedges to balance it all out and add just a bit of "edge" to all of the girliness.  
I always like to pair a little bit of edge with a lot of feminine.

When it comes to dressing up this holiday season I am all about going for fun, girly, pieces paired with chunky shoes, and touches of sparkle....Have you noticed all the sequins in every store? I'm loving it!
Oh And BOWS. I'm obsessed with all things bows.

Dress: C/O Ever+Mi.Crush
Tights & Wedges: Target!

  22. That outfit is ideal for me. I like the shoes- the chunky heels give you a nice feeling and they tie the entire outfit together. The stockings are cute and make the shorter dress look more appropriate for certain functions.
