Cute & Comfy Holiday Party Style


When I saw this dress I had to try it on.  It was soft, fuzzy, and my favorite color- white (well, cream- so winter white, close enough).  It did not disappoint.  You may have saw me post this outfit on Instagram -pairing it with this fab jacket from Banana (yes, Banana Republic right??)…

and these great Franco Sarto knee high bootsobviously because they’re awesome, but honestly because I had no motivation to put any self tanner on my legs. :)  Not to mention, these boots provide a crazy-slimming silhouette because they cover up all imperfections.  Woot-woot!

Show off that collarbone

But what you didn’t see, and what I must show you now, is truly the best part about this incredibly soft, comfortable and flattering dress… it’s neckline.  No matter what size or shape you are, showing off that sexy collarbone is a win for all.  Off the shoulder tops are a huge trend right now, and they flatter all body types so I definitely suggest trying one out this holiday season.


Pair With Simple Accessories

When you wear something off-the-shoulder like this, keep your accessories simple and let your dress/top and collar bone be the star.  I chose not to wear a necklace at all, and threw on some fun goldish-yellow tassel earrings you can find here.  What do you think?

Occupational therapy can help with adaptive equipment and organizing space or used for any hand issues you may have.

  6. Dear Mr. Booth,In your remedy to the United States Vs. America problem you yourself have committed the same crime. To refer to the United States as United Statesians as opposed to Americans would be to usurp the title United States from other countries who use it, such as the United States of Mexico.
