Cold Shoulder Dress for the Holidays

Cold Shoulder DressHappy Thursday? Not quite sure how that happened, but here we are. We got home late Tuesday night from our long weekend in Nashville and Knoxville. We couldn’t have asked for a better trip. Nashville was a little too much fun. Our friends invited us over for dinner on Thursday once we got into town {thank you for hosting Dickersons!}.  Fun fact, Russell surprised us by singing Yours for our first dance song at our wedding last year. We had no idea he and his wife were able to make it and are forever grateful for such a special surprise.We spent the rest of our time in Nashville hopping from bar to bar listening to live music, enjoying incredible food and then drove to Knoxville to visit my sister-in-law and her family. I know I’m biased, but we have the cutest niece and nephew {and now godson}. It was amazing spending some quality time with them, and it went way too fast. We’re already counting down the days until they’re in Wisconsin for Christmas.

All right, let’s chat about this outfit. I was so excited when I found this cold shoulder dress for the holidays. It is basically made of sweatshirt material and could not be more comfortable for our upcoming Thanksgiving festivities. I know they say to wear more formfitting outfits so you don’t overeat, but sometimes you just need a really cozy yet polished outfit. Also, it’s a bit hard to tell, but on top of the feminine ruffle detail, this dress has the slightest shimmer to it, which makes it even more perfect to wear with tights in December.

Get ready to see these boots quite a bit more through the winter. They have just the right amount of slouch, and the stacked heel makes them easy to walk in. I can’t wait to wear them with dresses, skirts and jeans over the next few months.

  • Ainsley got to come to work with me in June for a really fun photoshoot, and in celebration of her birthday week (😉), she’s in the latest Kohler mailer that’s being distributed this week! Swipe to see some of my other favorites and shoutout to my sister who jumped up and down and made crazy noises the entire time. 📷 by the talented team at @kohler
  • I burnt my fingers while making every single party hat tonight (okay that was dramatic because I only made these four), and they fall off the animals’ heads the second you touch them but I don’t care because I love them. My mom was so crafty and would’ve totally been over helping me make these, but I like the think she was shaking her head and laughing while watching me attempt to use a hot glue gun after so long and swearing along the way.
  • Spending the day prepping for Ainsley’s birthday party next week, and by prepping I really mean cleaning. I’m trying to keep this as low key as possible and not cause unnecessary stress. Here’s the three day review of the chairs that you seemed to love when I posted them on my stories. The short answer? We are really happy with them! They’re super comfortable, and we love the stripes. They didn’t have a swatch available for this color (Cruise Adrift) so I was just holding my breath that they would look okay when they got here. One of the reviews talks about how the pillows are filled with green stuffing, and that’s true. I’m thinking I’ll buy pillow inserts to replace whatever that is. I’m 5’2” and Bill is 6’, and they’re approved for both heights. Bill says they’re still not the recliner he’s been asking for, but they will definitely do 😉 I thought I wouldn’t want the swivel feature for this room, but we’ve been spinning around with Ainsley and side rocking back and forth while reading. I’m so, so happy they arrived early! #liketkit #LTKhome
