THIS IS THE SEASON... dress up! Which is always a huge challenge for me, to be honest. First of all, I prefer being comfortable and I like to keep some space for a serious food baby at the Christmas table, leaving me with a lot less options regarding party outfits. And secondly, I just find it hard to style glitters and sequin in a cool way!

My solution is fall back on a few holiday classics. In this case: a French inspired look! This 'Virivera' dotted dress immediately spoke to me because of its long sleeves and feminine ruffles — which means food baby possibilities! It’s a dress that can be worn during both daytime and nigh time during the holidays, turning it into a festive must-have. 

It looks great for a romantic date night with your love, but your grandparents will definitely appreciate it as well. Combined with a turtleneck knit, cute baret, lacquer boots and the 'Viefj hoops' earrings, the entire look gets a cozy Winterish but still dressed up feel.

Ho ho ho, bring on the parties!
