This warmer weather we’ve been experiencing has allowed me to get some good use out of my favorite dresses. If I don’t have to, I prefer not to wear tights; they can be so uncomfortable and restricting, especially when sitting at a desk all day. This dress happens to look best with thigh high boots and some peek-a-boo knees. And as you know, I’m  all about the outlets and stumbled upon this one piece mixed-media black and white dress from Banana while on a mini shopping spree. It’s comfortable and I can’t tell you how many people have asked and been in shock that it’s just ONE piece. Even in the winter, it’s common to wear a sleeveless dress and pair it with a cardigan; you rarely find comfortable long-sleeve work dresses. And as someone who is always cold, CUTE long-sleeve dresses are ideal so this was definitely a wardrobe WIN. I hope you’re all taking advantage of these warmer days because the cold will eventually settle in. Bare your legs while you still can!

The holidays are around the corner, and that only means one thing…holiday dress prep. I typically like to have several  dresses prepared for family gatherings, holiday work parties and date nights. Unlike previous years, I was able to get a head start on my dress search,  all thanks to The Mint Julep Boutique. From casual tops to party dresses, they have everything you need for that special holiday occasion. This black lace dress with flared out skirt instantly caught my eye. Its sweet and feminine, while its sultry lace neckline adds a serious element of sophistication. Because this dress doesn’t really need any accessories, considering it’s a statement in and of itself,  I went with a simple single strap black heel. Bring on the holidays!

I think I’m off to a good start, and you can be too! I’m giving away a $25 e-gift card to https://www.shopthemint.com/ (winner will be announced Monday, November 16th by 8:00 p.m. EST).
