Party Season!

As terrifying as it is, the holidays are just around the corner! And with it, party season! I already have a few events + parties on my calendar, and now that Halloween has come and gone, the invitations are starting to roll in. As I mentioned here, I have been on a mission to find cute party dresses that won’t break the bank. Of course I love a good splurge, but as I often see the same people at these events (also… social media), it can be hard to wear the same dress more than once or twice. Would you believe me if I told you this dress came from David’s Bridal? I know. As it turns out, they actually have a really cute assortment of party dresses, especially for the holidays! When I found this heart motif dress, from Cheers Cynthia Rowley (her collection for David’s), I knew immediately that a) it would be really flattering on my body (I love a good fit and flare silhouette) and b) that I’d get a lot of mileage out of it for holiday events. And the hearts are really cute, without being saccharine sweet.

To keep the heart motif from being too much, I kept the rest of my look simple. A simple cuff, strappy sandals, and a patterned clutch. Done. The perfect party look!

    This dress is so much fun! I don’t normally say this, but I’m exceptionally excited/ready for the holiday season this year. That’s not to say that I want to wish away the days before then…I’m just trying to infuse a little magic in the mediocre days before we get to the really good stuff! 🙂
