Is it just me, or are the Mondays after a holiday always the toughest? Here’s to hoping you have a steady stream of caffeine today!
I was lucky enough to have both Thursday and Friday off, which made for a wonderful four-day weekend at home. I went to a winery with old friends, tried bartaco for the first time (I’m obsessed!), decorated my Christmas tree, watched Home Alone, enjoyed more wine than I should have, and spent some time yesterday putting a dent in my to-do list to gear up for the week.
If your schedule is anything like mine over the next six weeks, it’s jam packed with holiday parties and probably a wedding or two (or three…or four…). While I generally gravitate towards black clothes this time of year, I like to keep my wedding-guest attire bright and colorful as I’m old school and try not to wear black to weddings. So when I saw this beautiful London Times pink ruffle shift dress by Maggy London, I knew it’d be perfect for any and all cocktail-attire-requested events on my calendar this winter. The color a great winter bright and the ruffle sleeves would be fun on any dance floor.
Maggy London—and London Times, their sister brand which makes this pink number—is one of my favorite boutiques to buy dresses from for both work and play. I find their classic silhouettes are extremely flattering, while the small details—like these beautiful ruffle-sleeves!—make Maggy London’s dresses stand out above the rest. And, as to be expected, I’ve found all of their dresses are extremely high-quality from the start and look like new even after multiple wears.
I think most Maggy London dresses—including the London Times Raquel Shift Dress shown here—run on the smaller side, so if you’re in-between sizes, I’d size up. This dress can really stand on its own, so I kept the accessories light—a fun glitter block heel and my go-to gold drop earrings.
There’s nothing better than an easy, colorful look for a wedding or holiday party during these busy next few weeks—so definitely check out Maggy London if you’re in need of an outfit! x
