Topped with a Bow

BB Dakota dress (similar) | Stop Staring belt | Hue tights | Franco Sarto pumps | Matt & Nat clutch (similar) 

One of my favourite parts of the holiday season are the never-ending excuses to dress up!
i.e. Holiday parties, Holiday get-togethers, dinners, do-drops, and just every day fanciness.
You rarely have to feel over-dressed and you always get to feel extra pretty,
just like you did back in the day heading out for the semi-formal.
Although in this case you don't have to switch gears between KC&JoJo and Nervana every few minutes.
We've been stacking our holiday commitments about 3Deep per day and the big saving grace, 
for me, has been relishing in the festive outfits. 
Don't get me wrong, the friends and family we're seeing are pretty great too, but when it comes down to it, 
they don't really hold a candle to this wrapping-paper style cupcake dress. 
Sorry guys, maybe next year.

  8. Oh yah, I'm going to be sooo overdressed this holiday season. Like the outfit I posted today with the sequin collar? I didn't wear that anywhere fancy... I got some looks haha.

    Love this dress on you. And you're so good with accessorizing. The textured tights, belt and bow headband so cute! I am always envious of people who can spice of a dress. I tend to go on the boring side... lame Melissa (that's my new nickname).

    Merry Christmas xo
