We are so close now, only a few days away from the big day and the excitement is at a def con 5 level in our house. Especially because Santa came a little early and brought a new member into our family! I promise a more formal introduction soon!
The LBD (or big black dress in this case) is the no-fail New Years Eve outfit of choice! This year I decided to change it up a little and go with a classic and preppy fit and flare dress. I prefer not to expose all of my arms this time of year if I can help it and if I’m more covered up on top then I can get away with bare legs and feel a lot more comfortable. This adorable and super comfy dress from Shabby Apple was the perfect solution!
When the dress arrived I was surprised to find that the material was stretchy which made it comfortable and not at all stiff. I love the bow details on the sleeves and the slightly puffy shoulders. The full skirt is so flattering too! I’m always a little heavier than I want to be by the time NYE hits and I don’t want to be uncomfortable at parties so the full coverage and shape of this dress is perfect.
I’m 5’7″, around 140 lbs right now and I’m wearing a size 10. It fits a little more like a bridesmaid type dress so I would say size up just to be safe but the fabric does give! Oh and brides-to-be, this really is one they can wear again :)
My current sunnies from DITTO are these adorable Zac Posen’s! I went out on a limb to try them and I wasn’t sure if I would like the style but I LOVE them! DITTO offers my readers 1 month free so don’t forget the code: SIMPLESTYLINGS if you decide to sign up!
I’m still loving my new curling wand!
The leopard heels are my FAVORITE new shoes and are really comfortable! Mine are Mossimo from Target but I can’t find them online :( Here is an almost identical pair and another great pair from Target!
This look really is simple to pull off and you can add any accessories to the this dress to make it your own!
