The Perfect Holiday Dress

I’m getting so excited for Thanksgiving, I can practically taste the stuffing and pumpkin pie (my two favorite dishes!). To celebrate, I cracked out a dress I’ve been holding onto for a special occasion for a few months. It’s so different from the styles I normally gravitate toward, but I cannot stress how much I love it. How cute is this napkin my mom had too?!


The table I put together is perfect for a small get-together. I was lucky that I got to go home this break for Thanksgiving and will be celebrating it with some extended family outside our house, but I thought about doing a set-up that would be easy to do if I was back at school — simple, elegant, and still incredibly festive. I paired a nice bouquet with some little white pumpkins, this adorable light-up “Gather” sign, and placed some evergreens on each plate. Thanksgiving is all about integrating natural elements, so flowers, gourds, and greens can make such a nice touch.

I loved trying different ways to place the pumpkins — details make all the difference!

Now, onto my favorite part — the dress! Sometimes when you try on a dress, you just know. You put it on, look in the mirror, and it just works…like magic. I gravitated toward this dress because of the color. Berries always catch my eye. The deep v-neck though, was not something I’d normally pick out. But, I wanted to give it a try (my mom always says, you never know for sure until you try something on!), and after that, I literally couldn’t get it out of my mind. The pockets, the cut, the fit — I loved it all! And the great thing about it is that it’s also a perfect dress for the upcoming holiday season, so I’m going to have to restrain myself from wearing it to every event. 😉
