Red Crushed Velvet swing dress: Forever 21 (similar options here, here and here) |Gold pointed toe pumps: Zara (old, but similar here and here)

Anyone else get a little sad when Christmas is over? I definitely enjoy the weeks leading up to Christmas Eve and Christmas Day almost MORE than the actual days themselves– they’re filled with parties, decorating, shopping — all the preparations that make every day feel special.

This was one of the fist dresses that I purchased once my bump started showing, and its a bit of a departure from most of the dresses that I’ve been wearing lately in that its NOT from fitting, but a sort of swing shape instead.  I was a super affordable find from Forever 21, and in crushed dark red velvet, I knew that it would be perfect for Christmas.  The Christmas Eve look above was what I wore to dinner with my family, so I paired it with gold pointed toe heels and a black and gold lucite box clutch.  I also wore this same dress to my work Christmas party, but slightly more casual with a black leather moto jacket and black high heeled booties– and you guys KNOW my fave thing to do is wear a dress multiple ways, with booties, sneakers and heels– it just makes a piece way more fun to play with in terms of versatility!

My exact dress is sold out, but I’ve linked similar options above, all under $100– shop them now; even though the holidays are over, this would make a great Valentines day look as well!

xo, ❤
