The Lazy Girls’ Party Outfit.


This outfit is essentially the lazy girl’s party outfit. You want to be comfy and able to eat (billowy shape) , but you still want to look cute (flounce skirt, short hem.) Yup, this dress is definitely a favorite. Anddd, it’s now on sale too! I paired it with my favorite Kate Spade heels (bought for a friend’s wedding years ago, still a mainstay in my closet as they are so comfy!) and an old sequin clutch that I got as a gift for my thirtieth birthday a few years ago. Proof that dressing well for the holidays does not need to be at all fussy or complicated.

Shop the post: Cynthia Rowley Dress – updated – this dress is now sold out but the new 2015 version is absolutely gorgeous! // Kate Spade Heels // Zara Pouch (similar) // BaubleBar Necklace

    I also have those heels in gold and they really are one of the most comfy shoes I own! On another note, I was already considering that necklace and now I’m itching for it even more!
