Change of Plans

 

New Years plans always seem to be a bit last minute.  My husband and I had originally thought the two of us would go out for dinner and have a night out with just us.  However when an invitation from friends came up for a night in at their place, we happily made a change of plans.   We had a great NYE with a big dinner, yummy wine, games, and tons of laughs.  The best part is that we were only a few blocks from home so no cab crisis for us.

I ended up wearing a more casual dark green H&M dress with tights and a cozy sweater.  I was so comfy.  It was the perfect outfit for a big meal and a relaxed night in.  Since I didn’t wear the outfit I originally planned to wear, I thought I’d take some pics of it.

Dress: c/o EShakti (now on sale),  Cardi: Kersh,  Faux Fur Vest: Le Chateau,  Clutch: c/o Shoppalu,  Belt: Brave Leather (old), Bangle: old fave, Earrings: gift,  Shoes: Steve Madden (here)

I love pretty dresses but I’m always fearful of looking too girly.  This EShakti dress has a beautiful feminine silhouette but by adding elements like a leather belt, a faux fur vest, and chunky ankle boots I’m able to add just a bit of edge.

    That out fit is stunning! I keep putting off buying the ever popular fur vest, but once again I can’t keep my eyes off of it!

      I bought this one last year but really only warmed up to it this year. It’s funny how that happens:)
