Winter Wedding Attire

Northwest Pearls: Winter Wedding AttireI hope you all have had a Merry Christmas or just Happy Holidays! I spent it with my family and had a great time with them! Recently I attended a winter wedding in a barn, so while it was going to be heated, I wanted to dress warmly and sensibly for the packed dirt floor. So I wore this dress from Nordstrom that I bought a few years ago, and my AGL flats.

The barn was a little chilly, so I actually never took off my peacoat, but it was still a fun and beautiful event.

Have you been to many winter weddings this year?

Warmer Shades

I was a bit sad to put away my summer clothes, but I do love that I can wear boots again! I bought this pair of booties on sale from Nordstrom about two years ago but I'm not very creative with what to wear these with so I usually pair them with maxi skirts or jeans and rarely with a shorter dress. How do you like to style booties?

Brunch for Two

My favorite clutch is one I received from my grandmother. I love it but I don't use it often because it's not practical. But I do like to break it out for dressier occasions. Like brunch for two. Northwest Pearls: Brunch for Two Northwest Pearls: Brunch for Two

My Style: Navy Fit and Flare Dresses

Northwest Pearls: Navy Fit and Flare Dresses I love sleeveless fit and flare dresses with a high neckline. Quite a few of my dresses fit this to a 't'. The rest of them are slight modifications on that style. (Maybe I should branch out...)

Here are three of my favorite navy dresses like that. From left to right:

  • Polka Dot Dress: Adrianna Papell (See how I wore it below)
  • Solid Dress: Loft (old); I couldn't find anything close, but here's a fairly similar ModCloth dress, it just has lace
  • Striped Dress: Target (old); Similar Dillard's and similar Nordstrom 

I wanted to share with you some more boatneck fit and flare dressesI found and love!

  • I wish I had a reason to get this ModCloth dress!
  • I know this JCPenney dress isn't navy, but I want it in my closet!
  • And isn't the pattern on this Nordstrom Rack dress cool?

What's your go-to style of dress?


 

Here's my blog post with me wearing the polka dot dress:

Evening Out

My favorite dress is one I bought from Target in high school. It fits perfectly and I love the feel of the material. It's my go-to event dress but I'll also pair it with a blazer or a sweater for work. And since it's from Target, it wasn't a splurge! Northwest Pearls: Evening Out

Holiday Neutrals

Northwest Pearls: Holiday Neutrals Here's one of my favorite dresses re-styled for a holiday party. I love wearing this dress. It's pretty versatile. You can dress it up like this, or for work with a blazer and lower heels, or down with a sweater and flats.

Lauren Ralph Lauren Dress

I saw this dress on a mannequin at Macy's a couple of weeks ago and went in search of it in the store. After a few minutes of searching without finding it, I finally asked an employee where I could find it. It turns out that the one on the mannequin was the last one left in the store. So I asked if she could take it off of the mannequin for me and she obliged. The dress is sleeveless and versatile. I can dress it for a cocktail party, for a day at the office, or for hanging out with friends. I'm excited to wear it around!
