If there is anything I feel like I am never prepared for, it’s a special occasion. I tend to like to wait until the last minute to buy whatever I might need for it. By last minute, I mean like a night or two before or even sometimes the day of! I think it comes down to thinking what I think I’d wear the dress for now vs what I could use it for in the future and if I don’t have a use for it now, I make an excuse not to purchase it. If I were to purchase it now, I can’t help but think I might not even like it in a few months anyways. Get my dilemma, now?
However, when I spotted this rust-colored lace dress from H&M, I knew I couldn’t pass it up. The color alone makes it the perfect fall dress for any occasion and lucky for me, I have a few coming up soon. It was also so affordable and totally suitable for work, so I knew I could get a lot of use out of it. Plus, the holidays are just around the corner!I sometimes have a hard time wearing dresses like this and tend to steer away from them because of my hour glass figure but after I tried it on, I couldn’t believe how flattering and comfortable it was! The details of the lace, the sleeves, and the fit were all reasons for me to purchase the dress now and figure out where to wear it later.
I paired this dress with my leather bomber jacket because I love the contrast. I purchased mine from Express a couple of years ago but you can find ones similar here and here. They definitely won’t be going out of style any time soon! I wore my Nine West nude pumps I’ve also had which you can find similar ones here or here.This dress in many ways is classic and I know that it’s going to be hanging in my closet for awhile. I’ve linked this dress and other options perfect for your next special occasion this season!
