Upscale Weekending: A Cozy Cardigan + Slip Dress
Can you believe Thanksgiving is tomorrow? The holidays always sneak up on me and all I want to do is slow them down! My favorite seasons always fly by in a flash. Especially when it comes to fall – it's a moment that is so fleeting!
Today I'm bringing you one of my favorite outfit combos. A slip dress with a chunky open cardigan worn over is both party-ready and cozy at the same time. I'm such a fan of the slip dress. It's an easy, throw-on-and-go piece that's flattering on any body type, and has just the right amount of romance with the slit going up each side. I picked up this one at Target for under 30 bucks! Can't go wrong with black! It's silky smooth which makes it extra comfortable, too.
This cardigan from Goodnight Macaroon is one of their most popular styles. The grey isn't available anymore, but they do have a nice neutral beige. I love the pockets and simple striping. The long length gives it the feeling of wearing a blanket! Something I learned from experience, don't order from the site if you need it immediately – it took about a month for my order to arrive! It was worth the wait though, I adore all of the pieces I got.
One of my favorite shades of nail polish to wear during the fall and winter season is burgundy. This color is called 'Afters' by Butter London. It's got more of a red tone than a purple. I gave my mani a festive touch with a 24K gold-flecked party nail from Butter London's Gold Standard holiday kit. I'm obsessed with this polish, it's just the right amount of glitter for me. The kit also comes with a small bottle of Afters, so it's a win-win! The girls at the Butter London Nail Bar were surprised I didn't go with my regular Smashing! red shade. I'm almost out of my bottle at home I use it so much!
Give this outfit a try this Thanksgiving! You'll be glad you won't have to worry about unbuttoning your jeans while you're in a turkey-induced-coma! I hope all of you have a wonderful weekend filled with good food, family and friends!
