Ever since my freshman year of college I have allowed myself to officially start listening to Christmas music on the trip home for Thanksgiving. It is funny how that tradition started the first year I no longer lived full time at home and started traveling home for the holidays. And this year, as I sit on this packed Connecticut bound metro North train, that moment is right now. I’m listening to Leslie Odom Jr’s album Simply Christmas smiling like a little kid. Which I assure you, makes me stick out like a sore thumb (even more than I already do) on a train packet predominately with commuters in suits.
I will be sharing more holiday recipes, shopping guides and most importantly heartfelt words over the next few weeks.
But today, I bring you this dress.
It is the unicorn of dresses, the holy grail if you will. I dare you to put on this dress and not twirl. HAH! I think it might actually be impossible not to feel like the belle of the ball in this dress. I paired it back to these perfectly festive velvet slippers. Because I am not about to pretend I wear heels while getting some serious work done in the kitchen. And plus, they can bring just the right amount of holiday pizzazz to any look.
I hope that you all have a happy and healthy Thanksgiving surrounded by the ones you love! xx
