Happy Boxing Day!
How was everyone’s Christmas? I hope you all had a wonderful time celebrating with family and friends and Santa was good to you. Our family had a wonderful time together and it was enough just to see the kids happy opening their gifts. They made out like bandits!
This look that you see here started out basic. I received this dress recently from Rose Wholesale which was on back order. Meaning, I ordered it in October (so it was meant for a fall look) but received it in December. I had totally forgotten about the dress until I received an email saying it was shipped out. So, I had to think about how I was going to style it for winter. The dress is so cute but extremely lightweight so I knew that I had to wear something over it to stay warm. I had recently purchased a similar blazer to this one on sale at H&M and thought it would be perfect to throw on over the dress. And you know what? It was!
Then of course, you add stockings or tights. The stockings (similar here) that I’m wearing were a gift from my sister-in-law which she brought back from Japan and they were the perfect addition to dress up the look. FYI…a friend has brought back stockings and undergarments from Japan for me before and they are THE best in terms of quality! So if you’re going to Japan or know of anyone going there, ask them to bring you back a couple pairs – trust me.
The booties are Vince Camuto which I picked up while I was in the mall at the Apple Store waiting to get my phone battery replaced. I had a lot of time to kill because I had to wait two hours for them to get it done. So, I walked into Bloomingdale’s and when I saw these booties it was love at first sight. The booties were on sale and I was so happy that I stumbled upon them. Side note, if you’re having issues with your iPhone battery running out of juice quickly, take it back to the apple store so they can replace it for free. It only applies to 6s and 6s Plus I believe, and they do look up the serial number to see if your phone is on the defective list but it’s totally worth it if you’re having issues.
I finished off my look with my trusty hat and Daniel Wellington watch, (get 15% off the danielwellington.com site using code Simplygailg), and voila I created a festive New Year’s Eve look!
Also, if you want to add a little more bling to your outfit, why not try a sparkly hairband. The one you see below is from Irresistible Me. Along with hair extensions, they also carry cute accessories like this one currently marked down from $25 to $5! It may not particularly go well with this outfit but isn’t it a great party piece?
