The Perfect (Affordable) Holiday Dress

In need of an affordable holiday dress? Well, you've come to the right place! This amazing metallic flare sleeve off the shoulder dress (I bought true to size) is only $55 and would be perfect for a Christmas get together or New Years Eve party. I'm planning to wear it to Justin's company Christmas shindig paired with a faux fur vest (for warmth while outside). I love that this dress has a hint of sparkle and most of all, that it's comfortable. The entire dress is made of a stretchy material, even the belt, so you can eat and eat and eat all the sweet treats!

METALLIC FLARE SLEEVE OFF THE SHOULDER DRESS: Lush | FAUX FUR VEST: Sole Society (not shown) | ANKLE STRAP SANDALS: Vince Camuto UBER CLUTCH: Gigi New York EARRINGS: Baublebar | PENDANT NECKLACE: Kendra Scott LAYERED NECKLACE: Baublebar LIPSTICK: MAC Blankety

The ankle strap sandals I'm wearing with the dress are incredibly comfy! I wore them during wedding season this year over and over and never felt discomfort. They are by my FAV shoe designer and great for anyone with a narrower foot. I love the color because it's different from nude but still matches almost everything. And you have to have a little pizzazz! I ended up layering two different necklaces and absolutely love the effect. One is a stone pendant and the other is layered (and only $15!) with three strands. My ball earrings are a statement but not overly showy as they are the same color as the dress. 

And my clutch... such a fun pop of magenta! When you keep everything in the same neutral color family, a pop of color in a clutch or bag is the perfect addition.

Guess what? Today is Justin's 30th birthday! The big 3-0! I had my photographer take the photo above of us in a photo in honor of his special day, and am so happy to be spending my Monday celebrating his existence :). He took Monday and Tuesday off so we've been able to spend a super relaxing four day weekend together. I made lots of treats, got an ice cream cake (his fav), scheduled him a massage, and snuck some bday presents under the tree. We're also going out for a nice dinner tonight which means we get to dress up - my favorite part!
