The first month of the year is almost at its end, and Valentine’s Day is around the corner. There are so many beautiful dresses and pieces out there; and I know it can be overwhelming, sometimes, to shop for the right dress when there are so many options, but I got you covered. I have selected a few beautiful dresses in different styles and colors in every budget for you guys. Before we get to that though, let’s talk about this beautiful off-the-shoulder dress I wore a couple of years ago… it is so in style and perfect for a chic and elegant Valentine’s Day outing!
There’s no doubt that this red dress will make a bold entrance in any room, but just imagine it in a timeless and classic NOIR… Chic! Can’t decide between the red and black? Get both! You can’t go wrong with either of them. Just send me a note and I will hook you up! P.S. It comes in white and other colors as well! 😉
If you need more options, take a look below. I made a selection of some of my favorite dresses from different brands in different price points. Just click on the images to see more. Before we know it, Valentine’s Day will be here, so make sure to get your looks completed ahead of time.
“Baby it’s cold outside… Wear your Long Thigh High Socks!”
“Baby it’s cold outside… Wear your Nice Warm Coat!” …
I have heard my husband saying these words to me almost every day of the Winter season. The man loves to remind me of how cold it is outside, like I wouldn’t know myself… That’s Love! 🙂 I have lived in the Midwest for over a decade now, and trust me, Winter is always harsh here, but wearing the right clothes and sporting a positive attitude is how you brave those winter days and one of my favorite Winter fashion accessories are Long thigh-high socks.
Thigh-high socks are the perfect footwear choice when you’re looking to cover a bit more skin than just with a pair of knee-highs, but don’t want to wear full tights. I love the fact that they’re so versatile and fashionable, and Chrissy’s socks has some of the most beautiful and fun long thigh-high socks… and they are made in the US. Check them out! 🙂
Oh, and if you are wondering how you can style your high-knee socks, here are a few ideas that I found on Chrissy’s socks website.
OVER SHEER TIGHTS
Thigh-highs are a great addition to simple hosiery. If your sheer tights simply aren’t warm enough or you are looking for a way to make your styling a little more interesting, then wearing a pair of black thigh-highs over a sheer black tight creates a very attractive gradience of shades. The two-tone effect is both trendy and subtle enough to be pulled off from daytime office-wear to an evening outfit. Alternatively, you can play around with color combinations and wear tights of any color under your socks. This lets you have fun with a pop of color rather than going overboard with it.
OVER PATTERNED TIGHTS
Sometimes, a pair of patterned tights with a great design can look a little too busy. Wearing a pair of solid thigh-highs is the perfect way to create a more subtle look and wear the pattern on your tights as a statement peeking above your thigh-highs. Wear a sexy black print with your black thigh-highs or opt for a fun and playful combination in a pair of colorful hosiery and white thigh-highs. Why worry about getting a run in your hosiery or choosing between comfort and fashion? This combination is the perfect balance of both.
SHORT SKIRTS & SHORTS
This has been a favorite look on the fashion runways, television, online media and magazines for many years. Pairing up your mini skirt, tailored shorts, or even sweater dress with a pair of thigh-highs is the perfect way to wear a short hemline and still look sophisticated. Why not try a combination of a pair of short-shorts and an oversized knit with your thigh-highs? It is a warm, casual look with the added flair of showing a little bit of skin. The great thing about thigh-highs and mini dresses is that they can transition from a cute lecture look to party wear simply by switching from a pair of flats to some platforms or high heels.
Forget wearing a daggy, mismatched pair of cartoon themed socks under your boots, because you think “no-one will see them”. Thigh-highs are an excellent accessory that will look particularly attractive when worn under your knee-high or thigh-high boots. Wearing your socks this way lets you show them off just a little bit and play around with layering. This doesn’t just look cute and fashionable, but it also makes wearing boots a lot more comfortable.
WITH ANKLE BOOTS
Ankle boots with shorter outfits can sometimes look less than perfect because they visually shorten legs or seem inappropriate for the weather conditions. When your outfit just doesn’t look quite right with a pair of ankle boots, the ideal accessory is a pair of thigh-high socks. Match colors to create the illusion of a slim boot or play around with contrasts by pairing your dark ankle boots with a pair of white thigh-high socks.

Happy New Year, guys! We made it to the new year and the new decade; and if you ask me, that is a blessing in itself! Today, I have no long recap of the year that just ended or a long list of new resolutions for the new year. However, as I always end the year with reflections and new intentions for the new year, all I can say is that I’m grateful and I’m looking forward to having a wonderful and fruitful year!
This year has definitely been a year for the books. It has been full of blessings and lessons; highs and lows; joyful moments and painful circumstances, but I’m still going strong and I’m ready to take on 2020.
I have to come to understand that the start may not look like the end, but we must believe that every “end” is the start to something new, and very special. Today I close the door to the past, and open the door to the future. I take a deep breath, and I step on through to start the next chapter of my life… and I suggest you do the same.
If for some reasons, you feel like 2019 hasn’t been your best year, I want to encourage you to rejoice in the present, and know that regardless of what has happened (or didn’t happen) in 2019, you are still here, and your best days are ahead. Be proud of yourself and what you have accomplished. You are extraordinary and capable!
That been said, I wish you all a wonderful year! May this new year bring you much joy and happiness, success and prosperity, good health and longevity. I’m sending you all lots of love, positivity, and blessings of abundance. HAPPY NEW YEAR 2020! Cheers!
Two days until Christmas and it’s finally starting to feel like Christmas around here! The past few days were extremely busy, but it’s worth seeing the smile on the kids’ faces and living in the spirit of the season. What are you guys up to?
Here’s a lost file, with a casual chic outfit that can make a nice holiday look. Sometimes, monochromatic looks are the “chicest”. Putting together a burgundy monochromatic look may not be your usual, but it’s all about fashion and expressing oneself. Need more inspiration on how to style this dress? Check out this previous post HERE.
Season’s greetings to you and your loved ones. Can you believe Christmas is almost here?! December has gone by so fast and I’m not even caught up with holidays’ shopping or Christmas’ decorations yet. I know this week is going to be a pretty busy one, but hey! I only have myself to blame… 🙂
The holiday season is a magical season. Let’s remember that and choose to look beyond ourselves and spread kindness around like confetti. Kindness is spreading sunshine into someone else’s life regardless of how gloomy the weather is.
Kindness is looking beyond your own life’s demand and bringing joy into someone else’s life and putting a smile on their face. So, during this holiday season, let’s find ways to spread joy and kindness around like confetti.
If you’re still shopping for dresses for your holiday festivities, try a non-traditional color such as this vibrant yellow dress that I’m wearing here. Yellow is a bright and bold color; and it’s very festive!
This dress has been sitting in my closet for a few months now, but I braved the Minnesota cold and sported it last weekend, as I had the honor to be the Godmother to a sweet and handsome little boy.
Thanks to my red coat which added the holidays feel to my look, I kept warm and I wouldn’t lie, I was looking pretty stylish while doing so! Let me toot my own horns one more time before the end of the year… 😀
