The Sol Compass: Christmas Dress with an Edge

Hi everyone, happy Monday! A few weeks ago, I took a poll on my Instagram asking what you all wanted to see more of this holiday season – casual or fancy outfits – and formal outfits took the win, so I started off with two velvet dresses in this post and a velvet tulle combo in this one! There will be plenty of casual outfits to come (plus this green sweater which pairs great with jeans!), but today I wanted to do a bit of a crossover between the two. If you have a formal event coming up but feel most comfortable in a moto jacket or stacked heels, this is the perfect marriage between the two. I found this gorgeous lace dress at Marshall’s, combined with TJMaxx, they are my two favorite places to find dresses – whether it’s for graduation season or the holidays! It is absolutely perfect on it’s own – I love the high neckline and lace sleeves – but to add a personal touch to it I think a black faux leather jacket and peep toe booties are the perfect way to add a little edge to an otherwise formal piece!
Outfit Details – Dress: Betsey Johnson, found at Marshall’s, similar here and here | Jacket: Topshop | Tights: J.Crew Factory | Booties: Coach (old, similar here, here, and here)
Thank you so much for reading, if you have any occasions coming up you want me to style an outfit for leave me a comment on this post! Have a great week!

Happy Friday guys!  Hope you all had a great week!  Mine was pretty low key, mostly relaxing after a very eventful and busy two weeks of traveling and trying to catch up on some work.  When I have all sorts of things on my plate, this color combo never fails me.  Black and olive with a touch of denim transcend seasons in my book, and I took my favorite date night outfit from summer to fall just by switching out the tank for a sweater and adding some tights and booties.
