What to Wear: Holiday Dinner Party


We’re having a few friends over for dinner tomorrow night and of course I have “nothing to wear.”  I want something chic and comfortable that allows me to cook, entertain and chase after a wild toddler.  And, as is usual, it’s the end of the month and most of our budget has gone to holiday shopping so it has to also be affordable.  Enter the mall down the street from me with an H&M, Macy’s, JC Penny, Kohl’s and Forever 21.  Not sure if I’ll get a chance to go, but if I do, here’s I have my eye on to purchase for the occasion.  Which one do you like the best?

Date Night Summer 2013-108

Having a busy full-time job, a 10-month-old boy and this lovely blog doesn’t leave a whole lot of time for date night.  So when it comes around I’m more than excited to throw on something fabulous to remind my husband what I look like without my hair in a bun and a Macbook on my lap.  It’s summer and a black maxi strapless dress with great accessories makes it easy to pull a sexy look together in no time (did I mention I have a 10-month-old baby?).  As always, I’m following my Pear Shaped Rules and cinching in the waist and showing off my neckline and shoulders.  Easy-peasy, sexy date night look!
