A Thoughtful Place: Little Black Dress {Holiday Outfit Inspiration}

Little Black Dress {Holiday Outfit Inspiration}

Enjoyed some much needed time with my girlfriends last night {yummy food and drinks always make the night easy and fun}. And keeping things comfortable and cozy, we don’t get crazy dressed up for such a night. The only time during the holidays that I tend to bust out anything remotely resembling something other than the mommy carpool uniform is on a Christmas season date with my husband. We like to get dressed up and go enjoy the surrounding places that have decked the halls to the nines. Here is a shot we snapped before going out {not sure why we don’t just ask someone to take our picture!}

I like to keep it it simple and this dress is probably the most comfortable dress I own. It is free flowing without a true waist so it’s very forgiving. And the lovely thing about a classic black dress is that it never goes out of style. I have had this one for over three years. I dug around and found some similar options.

I LOVE these heels!!!! They are sexy with a touch of bling.

Michael Kors Webster Clutch

This was a gift from my husband last Christmas and I have used it so many times. I love that I can tuck it under my arm or rest it on the table wherever we are and not worry about a large purse.

This is the most similar to my dress with the cut and the ruffles.

And every holiday outfit needs a touch of bling. This one is a GREAT price.

The other great thing about a little black dress is that it works all year round. I am heading over to Michaela’s to link up with the last round of our Christmas Link Parties. You can check out more holiday apparel.

  2. So fun to break out of the mommy carpool uniform :) Do you watch Modern Family? I realized how "mom" I dress most days when I started watching it and realized on most days I pretty much dress exactly like Claire. And they've obviously styled her character as the typical mom.

  3. Love the bling...and the little black dress. My husband and I never have anyone take our picture, either. Never thought to do a mirror photo. Will have to remember that the next time we are looking photo-worthy.
