Burgundy Skater Dress


{dress: Madewell, similar  | shoes: TopShop, similar | purse: Rebecca Minkoff | necklace: House of Harlow 1960 | ring: vintage}

Hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving and break from school/work! I definitely needed some time away from my books to enjoy my family (and really yummy food). Good thing I wore this dress on Thanksgiving because I needed some room after all that food I ate. Ever topped off your meal with a vanilla cupcake with an Oreo inside of it? Yeah, that'll send you into a food coma for a few days. 

I bought this dress about a year ago and it had been hanging in my closet since then. I forgot how much I loved this dress when I bought it. It's extremely flattering (hides food babies really well) & great for the holidays. Since burgundy is the color of the season I thought it would be great for Thanksgiving. 

The shoes I'm wearing are my absolute favorite pair. I was on the hunt for them for months and when I finally found them I bought them without a second thought. A pair of tuxedo-like shoes are a must in your closet. It can be tricky to wear them, but when you do it right your outfit will look so chic.
