My holiday dressing, my way

I like a good opportunity dress up, just like anyone else. But I can sure appreciate and enjoy the ability to be comfortable with your friends and family, instead of fancy but uncomfortable. I was saving this dress for a special occasion just like the holidays – because honestly, it is my first foray into wearing maxi dresses, when I said I would never wear one. *and this is the most maxi I think I will get!*

When I found this special dress, I really had to make an exception. Sea NYC is a brand I’ve admired from afar for some time. But I found a great deal at my local gem, Jeremy’s. It really is a perfect holiday dress to wear between our rainy days. I hope you had a happy holiday (or if you don’t celebrate, just an awesome week 🙂 ) I’m wrapping up some projects and posts to ring in 2015!

The perfect rain coat

I have the best luck thrifting, I am now the owner of an Everlane trench coat (which I had been eyeing on their site for a few months) but found at Buffalo Exchange. It came at the most perfect time, since we’ve had some non-stop rain the last two weeks. We sorely need it, so no complaining from my end. Especially now that I get to stay dry and look good 🙂 It does have a wide swing, so I’m still learning what shapes work best, so I don’t look like a tiered Christmas tree. Right now, slim jeans are my choice!

And let me just stay, this Everlane coat is pretty awesome. It is fully lined and constructed SO beautifully. I could only wish all coats were like this, I hope they start making more coats in more shapes.
