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 OOTD

I bought this velvet skirt from Kohl's a couple of weeks ago. I love it, but it's not a piece I could wear for just anything. I'm planning on wearing it to a few holiday parties this year and maybe for Christmas. The skirt is from the LC Lauren Conrad Runway Collection. It also comes in blue and black.

I paired it was a loose black top and sweater, but it also works with a tighter top, and I'd like to see how it goes with a crop top like this Topshop top or this Topshop top. The skirt waist is high, and if the crop top is long enough, I think I might like it.

And, the best part about the skirt: it has pockets! Why can't they make every fuller skirt have pockets? Seriously, how hard could that be?

Navy, Pearls, and Polka Dots

I love fit and flare dresses. They're fun, feminine, and flattering. This is the dress I was going to wear to my college graduation. It's one of my favorite dresses but because it doesn't have pockets, I chose to wear another dress to graduation. And, of course, it's hard to go wrong with pearls.
