Happy New Year, PIlgrim!

Hope 2016 is treating you all well so far!!!

Dress:  Eloquii (Available here)

Things are still busy for me, and I am admittedly feeling a little frazzled.  Because life has been so hectic, I have been opting for easy no-brainer dressing options.  And what’s easier than a dress?

This black and white dress from Eloquii has such an easy fit, and it is one of those pieces that can be dressed up or down.

Tights:  Eloquii

Like almost all of my clothes, this dress required some alterations. It had a layer of white fabric on both the sleeves and the hem which made the dress and sleeves too long.

Boots:  New Look (Available here)

At first, I simply considered hemming both, but I realized that I preferred the dress without the white.  Being so petite, I felt like the white layers were a little overpowering, and the dress seemed a bit over-designed.  

Instead of spending the money on alterations, I was able to change this dress myself by cutting the white layers out.  From the outside, you can’t tell that anything was cut out.

Ribbon tie:  Wal-Mart DIY

I bought some inexpensive ribbon and created a bow-tie for an added touch.  Tights and booties kept me warm with the winter chill.

Purse:  Forever 21
Faux fur keychain:  Torrid

My kids thought the dress looked pilgrim-y, but that was okay with me.   🙂

Rings:  LOFT and The Limited

Do you wear a lot of dresses?  What is your go-to when you want easy clothes?
