I am much more comfortable in a dress than I am in pants and a top. It may be because I have the hardest time mixing and matching separates. There are so many options and I can get overwhelmed. Give me a dress any day, it is a complete outfit and, if I can wear black tights and shoes with it, I am good to go. I should back up that statement with a little disclaimer, I only buy clothes that go with black tights and shoes. I have made that my uniform and have pretty much stuck with it except for a few brown accessories I wear for more casual wear. Sounds crazy but, it has made getting dressed at 6am in the morning, when I am trying to get out the door to go to work, so much easier. I do have a problem buying fun colored evening shoes, but that is a whole other post and conversation! For this post, I am concentrating on dresses that work for any Thanksgiving get together; casual, dressy, at home or going out to a restaurant for your festivities. We are hosting this year and I am thinking of wearing a midi dress that allows me to carry food to and from the dining room and then lets me cozy up on the couch for quality time with my family. I am eyeing this dress, it checks off all the things I am looking for; comfortable, flattering, mid-length, it goes with black accessories and the price is right. What will you be wearing to your festivities?
