The perfect holiday dress

Hello People!  Today is Thanksgiving (to those who celebrate, Happy Thanksgiving) and the official start of the holiday season, at least in my mind.  I love to dress up during the holidays, you know show the family that you have your shit together.  I have found the perfect holiday dress.

I bought this dress a few months ago and have been just dying to wear it. I love the color, it pictures red but it is really a burgundy which I love.  This dress is great for this time of year for a few reasons.  First, it has long sleeves which is great, I feel like my arms are always cold in winter and even when I was outside taking these pictures I didn’t feel all that cold.  Second, this dress actually looks best when paired with tights, I went with basic black but patterned tights would also look amazing.  Finding a dress that can be worn with tights is vital to dressing up in winter.  Lastly, this dress is not tight, during Thanksgiving I love this because I eat so much food I would rather not be wearing a tight dress to show off my food baby.  I did add a belt but that is adjustable so I don’t count it.

I love to wear this dress because it is plain I can dress it up in any way that I want.  I added a great statement necklace and this double buckle belt to add some flare and details to the outfit.

This is a shift dress so it is cut straight down and does not have a defined waist at all.  This is a hard style for a lot of women to wear so most women need to be careful about fit when looking for a shift dress, especially if you have a stomach or large chest.  I really like this type of dress because it is lose and if I wanted a waist I can add it in with a belt wherever I want.

Later!
