A Holiday Outfit: Blue Lace Dress, Black Capelet, and Sparkly Heels

You guys are probably getting sick of my Illinois outfits. I'm sorry! I wore a lot of clothes there? I'm finally getting through my backlog so you'll be seeing more recent stuff very soon. 

This is actually what I wore on Christmas Eve, so it's a little fancier than my usual outfits. Any excuse to break out this black cape (capelet?) is a good enough excuse for me. I spent more than I should have on it and I hardly get to use it because capes, while adding instant classiness, are kind of an awkward bit of outerwear. Like what do you do with your arms if they're not covered? I solved that issue by wearing a black cardigan underneath which may have negated some of the classiness of the cape, but oh well. Warmth is important.

dress: modcloth | capelet: prabal gurung - target | tights: forever 21 | shoes: madden girl - shoe carnival | necklace: gift | belt: thrifted



It was windy so enjoy my goofily parted bangs.



This blue lace dress is actually one of my favorite Modcloth purchases, but I've only worn it for special occasions. I fully intend on styling it in a more casual manner as soon as I have the chance. You can't see it in the pictures but it has a slight sparkle in the lace which equals fanciness in my book. How would you wear a dress like this on a casual day?

I know I don't say this enough, but thank you for reading my blog and being so kind in your comments. I'm hoping this blog will continue to improve in the new year and that you still enjoy seeing what I'm wearing and whatever other things I post about!

Happy Monday!

I think this is my favourite of your holiday outfits. Such a gorgeous dress - I'm not sure how you could make it more casual, it's just too perfect for those dressy occasions.

Gaah don't you just hate it when the wind does that to your bangs?! I always freak out :D

Eeeep, capes are just the most darn cute things. That one is absolutely adorable on you, Jamie! I love what you paired it with too--that dress is so elegant on you. :)

Hmmmm... I can see this dress being worn with some neon socks and black booties along with that belt of yours. :D But that's my sock geek speaking.

Warmth is important, and so is looking cute (to me, anyway). You achieved both splendidly!

SO pretty! I love the capelet! I really want a few capes I've been seeing on Etsy (there was this one amazing plaid one... swoon) but I get intimidated because nobody around here ever wears capes.
That dress is gorgeous on you. I can't wait to see other ways you style it!
