Bye Bye Boring: Instantly Upgrade Your Look This Holiday Season

Hey Mer-babes!  It is almost Thanksgiving (god bless) which means it is officially the most wonderful time of the year.  While it truly is the most wonderful time of the year it is so easy to forget about ourselves in the mix.  Between Holiday shopping and parties the next month is like a mad dash to the New Year.   All that craziness combined with the cold weather makes it super simple to get in the jeans and sweater rut.  Thats why I am here! As your fashion fairy (mermaid?) godmother.  This one piece will instantly transform your everyday look into the perfect holiday party get up.  

I have had this mesh maxi dress (shop similar) for a few years now,  I found it on Black Friday for super cheap but I had no idea how to wear it.  It had no lining and former me could not figure out how on earth this dress was to be wearable but of course I bought it anyways, as the trend-spotter I am.  As you know I am living for layering this season, and I had an epiphany.  To wear the mesh dress over jeans, duh.  I have already been wearing my slip dresses over jeans so why would this dress be any different, hint: its not.   I have picked out some amazing mesh dresses for you in a widget below, some of these have slips that you can just snip out when you want to pair with jeans, or put back on when you want to wear it alone.  

Styling this dress is a breeze.  I put on a base outfit of flared jeans (shop here) and a simple black tank.  From there I added my mesh dress and BAM, Holiday Party Look.  Of course no look is complete without a killer accessories squad.  I am all about texture so this pink faux fur jacket (shop here) was the perfect addition, the shaggy fur with the flare jeans is serving up major disco vibes but with a modern feel.  A block heel boot (shop here) holds it own with all the fabric floating around above it.  

My sunnies are by 2 SEE LIFE which is my latest sunglass obsession.  I love these clear frames with the mirrored lens, these sunglasses can take on the feel of any look you pair them with.  You can use code DANIAM at checkout and receive a FREE pair when you buy 2 for $20! Merry Christmas to you babies!
