The holidays are, without a doubt, my favorite time of year! I am itching to decorate for Christmas, but Jered has made me promise not to until we get back from Thanksgiving so I’ve been settling by planning my holiday party looks! This year my “formal” Christmas party is super early in the holiday season so I’ve been shopping around for a festive dress to wear. I think I may have settled on this gorgeous velvet midi dress.
If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you know how much I love mixing textures and prints, which is why when I saw this lace and velvet dress I couldn’t resist adding it to my shopping bag! The midi length is so on-trend right now and gives it a sweet and girly vibe while the sheer lace panels in the back keeps it from looking frumpy.
P.S. Did you notice the new Holiday section at the top of the menu bar? Keep up with all of my holiday content throughout the season right there!

Being 5′ 3″, I usually tend to shy away from midi lengths, but I don’t think that being petite should keep you from incorporating this style into your wardrobe. This particular dress can work for petites because of its fitted top and elongating v-neckline, the solid color, despite the change in texture, also helps by not cutting your figure in two. I paired some sleek nude stilettos with this to further elongate my legs.
