OOTD: Playing dress-up

Given that it is almost NYE and we are embarking on a new year, I thought my outfits should reflect that. While I really only wore this around the house today (don't make fun.), I did actually wear this for my husband's 32nd birthday at a cute little Parisian bistro down the street from us.

(p.s., saying my husband just turned 32 makes me feel a little old, especially when I was casually told by a peer at school that 30s are "actually middle-aged." Vom.)

 Dress: F21/Twelve by Twelve (maybe still in stores)
Blazer: Remain Paul strong shoulder jacket (here)
Belt: F21 bow belt
Shoes: Sam Edelman Niland (here-- the most comfy heels ever!)
Bracelet: Tom Binns Alice in Wonderland bracelet (here!)

Aaaannnywho. About the outfit. The dress was a great find at F21, especially because I have struck out with them lately. Nothing has really caught my eye, save for this little dress. I have been into lace recently and really like the chic and uber-feminine style of this. The jacket was a great purchase because I was dying for a new black blazer (I think I had a blazer in every color except for black, until now). How cute are the tuxedo-esque details? My bow belt is sort of my bow tie replacement, methinks. :)  Re: the bracelet-- I'll show it in more detail in another outfit soon because it's just the coolest thing ever, but this is all ya get right now. (it was my Christmas present from hubs!)


  1. 1. The whole outfit is adorable, but I love the dress belted and the shoes you paired with it, so flattering!

    2. Umm no fair you can prance around OUTSIDE in a dress and heels and no tights in the winter.. bah hum bug!

    3. XOXO

  2. If 30s are middle aged I'm so not happy!! Good thing I think that person's wrong :)

    Great outfit!! I love the lacey dress...

  3. You look beautiful! I love it all together!

  4. I love this outfit and I too have been obsessed with lace. I think too much. Everything that I've bought in the last week has some form of lace on it. I need to stop with that obsession, but I'll stop after I see if my F21 has this dress. It's so cute.

  5. Cute!!! That dress is adorable!

  6. Cute!!! That dress is adorable!

  7. That dress is lovely. I see no problem with only wearing it around the house. You look amazing!
