Black Velvet

I absolutely love holiday party season. It’s so fun to get dressed up and be merry with friends and family. My go-to holiday party look is simple- a pretty dress + tights + heels + red lips. I’ve had this dress for a few seasons now and it always sees a lot of action during this time of year.

Does it look like it’s freezing in these photos? Because it totally was! About two seconds after I took off my coat I was completely numb and Alex and I started giggling uncontrollably. Mostly because we were both fighting a battle with the wind/snow and clearly losing. Shooting pictures with Alex is always fun. We’re like the post office- rain or snow we keep going!
