LuLu*s Holiday Dress Series: Look 1

Monday, December 16, 2013

Have you ever bought that perfect holiday dress to wear to that one Christmas party?
You wear it, you rock it, you get a million compliments.....but then what?
It's too fancy to wear on its own for an every day look so you probably hang it up and put it in the back of your closet, aka the infamous black hole, right?

Well, I've got the solution for your problem right here!
In fact, I'll give you four solutions!
say whaaaaaaat?

This week, I am doing a Holiday Dress Series sponsored by LuLu*s, where I show you four different ways you can style your fancy holiday dress for an every day, casual look! My perfect holiday dress is the Lumier Ivory Dress from LuLu*s (shown above)--it's classy, elegant, and I looooove chiffon! I have so much fun twirling around in this dress (I know, I'm such a little kid). I'm also using these six additional items below from LuLu*s to style my lovely dress and to help dress it down for four casual looks!

So let's get this party started!  

{ Look 1: Boho Chic }

Dress: c/o LuLu*s
Cardigan: c/o LuLu*s
Fedora: Cotton On [similar]
Belt: Thrifted
Boots: Thrifted [similar]

I went for a Boho Chic vibe for this first look because that's my favorite go-to style. You can really wear anything with a comfy, cozy cardigan so why not wear it with a holiday dress? You guys also know that I find any opportunity to wear my fedora, so I added it to this look as a finishing touch. :)

Check back tomorrow for look number two
Can any of you guess what style it will be? ;)

Also, at the end of the series, I'm teaming up with LuLu*s to give away a $100 store credit to!!! Talk about going out with a BANG! So if I were you, I would head over to LuLu*s and make my wishlist of things I would snag if I won!
