Seasonal Style: Blush Mock-Neck Lace Sheath Dress

In continuing with my seasonal style series, I wanted to bring you a softer look today for all of your upcoming soirees.

Several of you who have been on the hunt for the perfect party dress may not necessarily favor the bolder shades of reds and greens that are so prevalent this time of year, or maybe you just prefer something closer to a neutral color palette. If you're nodding in agreement, then this look has been styled with you in mind!

This blush lace mock-neck sheath dress from Nordstrom is a gorgeous option and it's only $52!

It hits all the right chords: it's delicate, feminine, and absolutely beautiful. Plus, the blush color is soft and flattering to all skin tones. It also happens to fit like a dream thanks to its slimmer, 
'body-con" fit. Sizing runs small (great for petites), so definitely size up one to two sizes for a more comfortable fit. For reference, I usually wear a size XS, but sized up to a Small per the recommended sizing information on Nordstrom's website, and it fits nicely. It hugs your curves while still allowing you to sit and move freely.




The mock-neck styling with the peek-a-boo lace is such a pretty detail. The rest of the dress from the bust down is fully lined in a blush-nude fabric, but you will still want to wear nude undergarments to err on the side of caution. ;-)

If you're looking for this same style of dress but prefer sleeves for more coverage/modesty for an office party or other conservative venue, then this is a lovely option as well as this belted one. Both of them offer petite sizing selections as well!



To keep warm, I draped my favorite J.Crew Lady Day Coat over my shoulders. I like that it adds elegance to the overall look as well. Any classic, well-fitting coat in a light color will pair nicely with this dress, but there's just something about the combo of winter-white and blush that I just adore, so I opted for this particular colorway. 
(Side note: the J.Crew Lady Day Coats are definitely worth the investment; they're extremely well-made, have a flattering and classic cut, and are offered in regular, petite, and tall sizes in a variety of colors every season; that's why they're best-sellers!)

Finish this feminine ensemble with a pair of glittery-gold pumps and matching shoulder bag or clutch, and you're perfectly party-ready!

I hope you enjoyed this softer, seasonal look!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a wonderful evening!
XO
