Occasion Wear For The Holidays

Our calendars are starting to fill with holiday parties which means it’s time to start to planning outfits! This year we’re preparing now so we aren’t scrambling for something to wear last minute – which happens often lol. So today we’re sharing dresses we just got from River Island (both are under $100!). They’re perfect for special occasions, parties, holiday events, or winter weddings!

Next time I put this dress on I won’t have a big ol’ belly 😉 which is so crazy to think about! The baby has definitely dropped and will be here any day now! Anyway…on to this fun dress. The color is so pretty and will definitely be a standout at parties. I debated getting it in black but the pink was too good to pass up. Plus, I like to switch it up and wear a little color for the holidays. This dress is very stretchy (just what I need during the holidays lol) and I got a size 4.

Love that the dress is long sleeve and midi length!

How fun are these metallic heels? I was hesitant about ordering because of the heel height but they’re actually very comfortable thanks to the block heel. They fit TTS!

I love dressing up for holiday parties because it’s really the only time of year I’m wearing fancy dresses, bags, and shoes every weekend, so it’s fun! I’ve ordered several dress options for this years’ parties, and this one was the first to arrive. I love the slit with the lace slip under. It comes in 4 colors, and I feel like it runs pretty small – I’m wearing a US 4, and feel like I could have gone up one more size for a little more room in the toosh ;). *I usually wear a 2 in dresses. 

I love the details on these pumps! The sparkly cap toe is beautiful & perfect for the holidays, and I love the mesh…gorgeous! I’m a 7.5 – 8 and the 39 (US 8) is just a little too big, but it will be fine once I add pads to the shoe.

I’ll be honest, this faux fur coat was the only thing keeping me warm while I was shooting this look lol. It’s so soft and cozy! I’ll be wearing this to holiday parties, as well as with jeans & sneakers. It’s so versatile, and I love the leopard lining. It’s oversized, I’m wearing a small. I also love this one, and it’s a bit budget-friendlier.
