I’m trying to get outfits ready for upcoming events (holiday parties, birthdays and blogger meet-ups). I’m still playing around with different combinations – it’s tricky figuring out the right shoes and jewelry to wear! Here are some of my recent dress purchases:
I have the same dress as Pippa Middleton! I didn’t know that when I purchased it – but I think it’s cool. In this picture I’ve paired it with black leggings and boots and my Balenciaga First bag (hello pretty bag!!!). I think my boots may be too chunky for this dress – I may wear it with black tights and my aldo ballet flats instead.
|H&M Horse tunic $49.95|
I’m still debating whether I should keep this dress/tunic or not. The print looks busy in pictures, but in person the combination of blush pink and rich navy is so pretty. If I were to keep it, I’d unbutton the top more, lower the belt and wear it with dark skinny jeans. I first saw this dress on Louise from Cosmetic Bee – check out how lovely it looks on her here.
|Old Navy Tie-front Kimono Sleeve dress $39.94 (I got mine 25% off)|
I like how conservative this dress is – it falls below the knee and has long sleeves – perfect for family get-togethers. I cut off the fabric belt (I hate tops and dresses that tie in the back!) and used a studded j.crew belt instead. I plan on wearing this with sheer hose and nude pumps (used to be a fashion no-no, but Kate Middleton’s brought it back!)
|Old Navy Nude Pointy Flats and Leopard Print Ballet Flats|
If you haven’t tried Old Navy shoes yet – I seriously recommend that you do – their flats are so unbelievably comfy – they feel like the softest bedroom slippers but look very chic. I’ve been wearing my metallic ballet flats non-stop – and I was eager to purchase more – I bought these 2 pairs for around $12 each with promos and discounts (they might be even cheaper now, although limited sizes are available).
