Red Hot!

I mentioned in Monday’s post that Christmas is my favorite time of the year, and one of my favorite ways to be festive is through my wardrobe!

The funny thing about this red lace dress is that I actually purchased it as a graduation option, and ended up not wearing it. At first I thought I should return it, and now – nearly eight months later – it’s finally making it’s debut haha! I knew I really wanted to embrace the holiday spirit this year, and figured this red lace dress would be perfect for all of those seasonal parties!

I’ve been super into midi dresses lately, and loved the length with this one. If you’ve been reading for some time, you might also know that I’ve been trying to embrace my curves, and this dress does just that! Although this dress isn’t something I would ‘typically’ always choose, I figured throwing on my favorite leather jacket would balance everything out a bit more and make it more “Me”!

Also, in case you’re wondering – I took these photos at the Waldorf Astoria in Chicago and am so obsessed in how they turned out! The Christmas tree is absolutely gorgeous in person, and made the perfect backdrop for this outfit!

Red lace dress: Lulus (identical) // Leather Jacket: Zara (similar) // Heels: Steve Madden  Earrings: Kendra Scott (wear these ALL the time!)

  • Seriously can’t believe this is real, but I’ve officially lived in #Chicago for two whole years! It honestly feels like yesterday when my mom, dad and I drove a U-Haul for five hours with me sitting on a stool in the middle to move here 😂If there’s anything I’ve learned thus far... it’s to hire movers 🙈😂 Justttt kidding (not really). But there is a new post where I’m diving into three of the biggest lessons I’ve learned since moving to #ChiTown!
