Leather-Trim LBD

black dress leopard belt

The countdown is on! I leave early next week to head to Florida for Christmas. I can hardly wait! Warm weather Christmas… It’s definitely been a while! I haven’t spent Christmas outside of Illinois in a longgg time… Like, 15 years or something. So excited!

I was going through my folder of photos on my computer trying to figure out what dresses to pack for my trip and I came across these photos that I accidentally forgot to post earlier this fall. Oops! (Side note: I really miss my summer tan..)

This dress is definitely coming with me on my trip, but I also made a mental note to style it with a tissue-thin turtleneck and textured tights once I get back. Or a sparkly blazer would be fun, too! The options are endless.. Perfect LBD. (PS: The dress is 25% off through Christmas! code: HOLIDAY2014)

    This dress is SO darn cute on you! I love how you cinched it with the belt- it really makes it so flattering. But YES definitely needs a few layers, lol!

    Such a cute dress! I love the leopard print belt with it. And I think it would look super with a really thin turtleneck underneath! Great earrings, too.

    This post has me longing for warmer weather!! After waking up to freezing temps, I think winter is officially here to stay in Kansas City. But word on the street says we might get a white Christmas – we haven’t had one in years!

    What part of Florida are you traveling too? I live on the east coast of Florida, lately it has been cool enough in my area to wear a sweater, which I love! 🙂 Is your family also traveling to Florida? My husband and I flying north for Christmas, can’t wait to see some snow, I know I’ll be ready for the Florida warmth again after a few days though! 🙂 Have a fun trip! 🙂

    Such a cute dress…I have similar fit and flare dresses in just about every color except black! I think it’s high time I add a black one to my collection…and I love the way you’ve styled yours here!
