Today’s blog post is short and sweet because I know we all have a to-do list a mile long to get ready for Christmas. I’m still doing some last minute shopping and prepping and just can’t seem to get ahead. Deep breaths…
Be sure and scroll down to the end of this blog post. I’m sharing my all time favorite Christmas Music Playlist!
My HOLIDAY SHOP has some great gift ideas if you are still in a shopping frenzy! Remember you can order online at Nordstrom and pickup curbside.
Thank you to all of those who shopped with me this season. I loved putting together my gift guides and I so appreciate your support of my blog and my business. It is my pleasure to share my style tips with all of you! XO
ANIMAL PRINT SWEATER DRESS
Let’s talk about this grey and black brushed animal turtleneck dress. It is a true show stopper, designed to have a flattering fit with color contouring that is lighter in the center and darker on the sides. This creates a very slimming illusion. It runs XP-XL and is fully available in all sizes. I am wearing a PT for size reference.
This dress is by WORTH, one of my favorite fashion houses. You will pay a little bit more for this brand but the quality and attention to detail is impeccable. WORTH only purchases their fabrics at the finest mills in Italy and France (the same mills used by Chanel & Escada). WORTH is investment dressing and you can count on these gorgeous pieces working hard in your closet for years to come.
HOW TO STYLE A SWEATER DRESS:
A sweater dress is versatile in that you can wear it with booties or boots as I have it styled here. I actually have on over the knee boots similar to these (40% off!) that I have slouched down. You can also dress it up with black pumps (my favorite Christian Louboutin dupes). Lastly, I would wear this dress with these sneakers and a denim jacket for a very casual look.
You can also find a great selection of sweater dresses here, here and here.
MY FAVORITE CHRISTMAS MUSIC PLAYLIST:
I love playing Christmas music during the holiday season and my car radio is set on “The Message” on Sirius radio. However, this is my playlist of choice for Christmas music..some are oldies and some are current. I would love to hear what your favorite Christmas songs are so please leave me a comment.
