Black Ombre Dust Jersey Dress c/o French Connection | Ivory Vintage Chanel purse | Accessories: Gold arrow ring via Crossroads Trading, White rhinestone necklace c/o Guess | Black Ivanka Trump booties
With this second part to the French Connection holiday series, I decided to showcase a fun outfit for a girl’s night out holiday look, even great for New Year’s Eve inspiration! With the holidays coming up, of course you’ll be out more often (with a much-needed break from work! and other stresses). I thought it’d be fun to style an outfit for celebrating the new year in style with a party dress. I styled this gorgeous ombre jersey dress from French Connection with minimal accessories, all gold and white jewelry and a trusty crossbody ivory purse. We had a lot of fun shooting this outfit at dusk in San Francisco. Little secret, we dodged oncoming cars, but safely of course ;) and all in the name of art! To also make the look less dressy but a bit more comfortable (for those SF hills), paired it off with high heel booties.
What caught my eye about this dress was firstly how it has this jersey knit fabric making it form-fitting but very figure-flattering. Also, I love how there’s a contrast between the black and white colors. The pretty speckle pattern turning into an ombre effect really made this dress so amazing and eye-catching from the rest.
I hope you guys liked this second part to the holiday series, and it inspired you to have fun this holiday break — particularly, for New Year’s Eve! I can’t wait to share with you the last part to the series for more holiday inspiration, stay tuned next Monday! Signing off now for the weekend, have a great Friday lovelies and time off ahead. :)
