Christmas is by far my favorite holiday. Getting together with family to eat a ridiculous amount of food, buying presents for the kids, being cozy and warm inside while watching the snow fall outside and listening to an endless playlist of happy holiday music are just a few reasons why I love the holiday season. I also LOVE having the excuse to get all dressed up & romantic dresses are my absolute weakness! There aren’t many days where I get to be all fancy schmancy so I take full advantage whenever the opportunity presents itself.

I came across this GORGEOUS dress last week & knew immediately I needed to do a post about it. It reminded me of a Dolce & Gabbana dress without the “If I buy this I can’t afford this month’s rent” price tag.

The jacket is incredibly cozy, can be dressed up or down & it’s the loveliest off-white cream color which is 1000x better for me vs. white because Kai+Rowan+White = bad news bears. The choker necklace is a great choice if you want to try the choker trend in a subtle-elegant way, it’s the prettiest light pink that can be worn with anything. The shoes were from a couple of seasons ago but you can find a similar pair here and I just bought these = SUPER comfortable, & just went on sale for $37. I wear simple black heels with pretty much everything in my closet.

Looking for the perfect holiday party outfit? I’ve created a round-up of my favorite looks and pieces below & most of them have JUST been put on sale. I’ve tried them all on in person and they are even more beautiful on. Amazing quality!

My absolute favorites are this gorgeous floral gown, romantic embroidered sweater jacket (now half off!) & velvet kimono that I will be wearing with everything, in every season.
