Thanksgiving has come & gone (sadly) and now it is time to transition into full-on Christmas-mode! As soon as I get back to Houston, Patrick and I plan to buy our Christmas tree & decorate the house for the holidays until no corner is left untouched. With all of the parties on the horizon, it’s also time to start breaking out holiday dresses, festive colors & prints to get into the spirit of the season. I’m chatting about why I think this red dress makes a perfect holiday dress + a few reasons why it works all year-round too! (Plus, the majority of my look is 30% off today only too!)
This floral dress by Tracy Reese from Anthropologie (is 30% off today) comes in four different prints & in a silhouette that is flattering on almost any and every body type too. I picked the red floral print because I thought it would be perfect for the holidays. Dressed up with a fur cowl and heels, this look is great for a holiday dinner party, girl’s gift exchange or a Christmas luncheon. I am planning on wearing something dressier for Patrick’s company Christmas party, but I have a feeling this red dress of mine will be on heavy rotation in the weeks to come.

I love that this dress also works for every other season of the year, depending on how you style it. I’m planning on pairing it with strappy sandals in the spring, a sunhat in the summer & tall boots in the fall. It is such a versatile piece!
Sidenote: I’ve worn these Seychelles Lace Up Heels on the blog a time or two recently and I don’t think I ever mentioned to y’all that the inside is lined with FUR! If you live in a cooler climate, these would be amazing for a chilly night out. (Or in!)
But enough about clothes, I want to pop in really quickly to share how much fun we’ve been having in Nashville this past week! I’ve definitely left a (big) piece of my heart in Tennessee and it feels SO good to be back “home.” When we landed, I was blown away by the fall foliage and cooler weather – something I definitely don’t take for granted having lived in TX for four years. We’ve also been eating SO much good Southern food. From Hot Chicken to collared greens, pot roast & loads of mac n cheese (oh & our Thanksgiving feast too!) I’m definitely sensing a visit to Soul Cycle when I return to HTX. For those of you who traveled back to your hometowns for the holidays? What was your favorite part of your visit!?
As always, thanks for stopping by the blog!
