Happy Friday on the one week a year where Friday really does not matter! But even though a good deal of you are likely off work today it is a Friday and the last one of the year so that means a new outfit post! In case you could not tell from the four dozen Fashion Friday posts or my round up earlier this week of my 10 best looks, I have been a big fan of both off the shoulder and bell sleeves this year and finally I found a dress that combines both of them in one! This BB Dakota Off Shoulder Two-Tone Lace Dress check all of the right boxes for me – from the lace sleeves to the a-line cut, it was a keeper the moment I saw it plus you can’t go wrong with shades of blue.
On Tuesday night I paired the dress with these Rebecca Minkoff Statement Sphere Drop Earrings which I recently picked up from Shopbop and my favorite pair of rose gold strappy sandals and called it a day. As I mentioned on Instagram, the look worked perfectly for my parent’s annual holiday party – an occasion which calls for black or deep red in my mind – but where this dress worked well in this 80 degree Florida weather – an outfit compromise!
And I must say, I think my younger brother did a great job taking these photos for me! Usually my Mom is my photographer when I am home but as she was setting up for the party my brother stepped in, thanks Kev. The party was a great success and I will share a few tips and tricks for hosting a 20+ person dinner party as well as a few recipes but for now a selfie from the evening!
