This weekend was our first year hosting Thanksgiving. My husband was very ambitious and prepared a turkey and rib roast. Both turned out great, but the roast stole the show. We had family in from out of town and ended up with 11 guest total. It was a lot of fun.
Did anyone venture out for Black Friday? I prefer to stay in and surf the web for the best deals. I’m excited to say that I did find a couple of fun items that I will be sharing soon.
Let’s talk about today’s look. I have wanted a shirt dress for as long as I can remember. On my frame (5’4″, broad shoulders, and large chest) the task can be nearly impossible. All the dresses in this variety are too long, and resemble a pajama shirt. Here are a couple of tips for finding the perfect one.
Size down. This will give you a slimmer and more flattering silhouette. Shirt dresses tend to be over-sized and boxy.
Buy petite. Getting this dress in petite was a big win. Not only is the length great but the overall fit has less fabric.
Add a belt. Define your waist by adding this accessory.
Add a layer. Adding a jacket or a cozy top layer will also provide your frame with more definition.
My favorite part of getting dressed is the accessories. I love timeless jewelry. When I spotted this monogram disc pendant it was love at first sight. This one is Stella & Dot and adds a little something special to any outfit. The ring’s black pave stones add an elegant but tough feel.
Thanks so much for reading see you Thursday!
