We are 7 days into October already - what the....? Don't have a Halloween costume for the little Dude yet - he's not old enough to have an opinion (or even know what is coming) but he's really in to "Finding Nemo" right now, so we can't decide if he should be Nemo, or a shark (he loves the sharks in the film, even though they only have like 5 minutes of screen time.) Part of me doesn't want to bother with a costume because I don't think he's going to want to wear it, and trick-or-treating with an almost 2 year old doesn't sound like a very productive activity. But on the other hand, little kids in costumes are SO CUTE! LOL So we'll see.
But once Halloween comes and goes, it will be Christmas time before you know it. While I feel like the holidays make what's left of the year go by even faster, I do love the occasions to dress up more than usual that usually arise. I'm loving this dress for parties to come. It is SO comfortable, the lace is very soft and stretches, and the pattern of the lace and the fact that it is black makes it very forgiving, despite being formfitting. It is dressy on it's own, but I think that it can even be dressed down for just a casual night out with a jean jacket and some moto boots. And for less that $70, totally worth it.
You can get this exact dress below, and while my shoes are old, I'm loving these very similar ones, which are also a great price.
