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!

    I loooove this! It’s so playful and feminine and still looks so comfy! And I’ve seen two people in my bloglovin’ feed carrying sequin clutches this week and it makes me think I need one! Love the little touch of glamour it adds!
