Well what do you know... I did decide to switch up the classics for something a little less classic - in my case. To be completely honest I had actually decided to wear this dress more casually with a pair of ankle boots or Adidas kicks, but it turns out: I love the look on others but it doesn't quite work on me. No matter though, I do still own a couple pairs of heels and so the dress turned out to be a goody for a more dressed-up Christmas look.
I am in the Netherlands with my family as we speak and excited to celebrate with them over homemade cookies (not by me...), delicious festive meals and
some glasses of red. Merry Christmas everyone!
