Rockin’ in Red

Christmas is my absolute favorite time of year – and for many reasons. The actual meaning of Christmas, for one… the gorgeous decorations and music, and the chance to pull out all of your pretty, festive dresses!

I was obsessed with the lace up trend over the summer, and just couldn’t part with it during these colder temps! I spotted this lace up dress on ASOS a while back and fell in love. With the holiday’s in full swing, I knew it would be perfect to pull out for all those seasonal parties and events. This lace up dress is a bit more of a rust color than red, and I thought my favorite striped poncho would be the perfect winter pairing! This single-digit Chicago weather is no joke!

I also think this lace up dress could easily be worn as a New Years Eve outfit, just switch out the over the knee boots for a pretty pair of velvet sandals (seriously – how cute are these?!)! And speaking of over the knee boots… I’m obsessed with mine! I’ve professed my love for over the knee boots on many occasions, and I finally purchased a heeled pair! The crazy thing is I purchased this Ivanka Trump pair from the Nordstrom Last Chance store (not to be confused with Nordstrom Rack), and you’ll never guess how much. DRUMROLL………

$25 DOLLARS!

That’s right. I bought these for only $25! If you’re in Chicago I definitely recommend checking it out – there’s so many great finds! I’ve already worn these over the knee boots too many times to count (wore them last night to a Christmas party) and they’re super comfortable! I couldn’t find them for a similar price on other retailers, but they’re definitely worth the investment!

P.S. – be sure to check back Wednesday for my favorite Christmas outfit ever!

    Red is definitely your colour. I love that you opted for a white and grey poncho, instead of traditional dark colours we see during winter.
