The holidays are officially here and that means copious parties, delicious goodies, and gifts galore. I don’t know about you, but I always seem to collect dresses around the holiday season, even if I don’t necessarily have that many parties to go to– I like to have options, what can I say? This season is no different. I’ve started my dress collecting early and this taupe velvet midi dress was first on my list. I was a little reluctant to get on board with the velvet trend. I know it’s huge right now, but when I think velvet, I think of ALL of my childhood Christmas dresses that I wore with white tights and black patent leathers. You know the dresses I’m talking about, full velvet with either a bow or an embroidered poinsettia? They were absolutely appropriate for the church pageants and family gatherings when I was 10, but as a 20-something I couldn’t wrap my head around a full velvet dress. I decided to take a chance and jump on the bandwagon, and I couldn’t be happier. Not only is this dress silky and soft, but it’s classy and sophisticated. The high neckline makes it modest, while its bodycon fit is sexy and stylish. Not only will this be a dress for a holiday gathering, but I can even wear it for a date night. Stay tuned for more of my holiday dress picks.

WEEKEND WEAR

Lately, I’ve been taking full advantage of the leisure that comes with weekends and have been adjusting my weekend style for the better. Instead of getting hung up on the ‘perfect’ outfit, I’ve been wearing  what feels right. My Garage Clothing boyfriend jeans have become my yoga pants’ replacement (yes, I said yoga pants!) they are just as comfortable and there’s no judgement passed. As you can tell,  I’ve been all about linen this summer—it’s light, easy and effortless. In fact, my striped J.Jill linen shirt has been serving as my summer “overcoat”, I’ve been pairing it over everything from a simple tee to my bathing suit. The neutral grey and white stripes help highlight the fun subtle colors of red, yellow and soft pink, making it a definitive summer staple.
