This A.L.C. dress, in a beautiful butterscotch color featuring metallic gold thread, is the perfect winter dress: warm, fashionable and comfortable. My only issue: no zipper!

It's hard to tell from the photo, but the lace on today's dress is made up of leaves strewn with beautiful shades of pinks, blues and greens. The design really pops against the navy background, and combined with the puff sleeves and square neckline, make this dress truly special.
Shoes: Jimmy Choo Luna 100 Glitter Peep-Toe Pumps (no longer available)
These shoes are several years old, but Jimmy Choo has a new glitter pump that is very similar (sans the peep toe).

It's a cold and rainy start to the week here in Atlanta. It's hard to be motivated on such a dreary day, but I have so much to do that I can't afford to be distracted.
Fortunately, I was able to get my photo in before it started to rain. I enjoy wearing bright colors on darker days, so this Shoshanna dress was a perfect pick.
Dress: Shoshanna Nunzia Dress in Coral
The dress is no longer available to purchase -- but you can rent it on Rent the Runway. I'm wearing an XS for reference. It's a snug fit, and there are no zippers, so make sure you buy a size that makes it easy to get on and off. The dress was a little shorter than I expected, too.

Today I'm wearing two gifts I received for Christmas. The Milly dress was a present from my sister, Gail, and the Jimmy Choo purse a gift from Chapin. It was my big gift this year. Chapin knows how to make me happy -- with fashion! In case I don't say it here often enough, I feel so blessed. It was hard not seeing my family for Christmas this year, but I'm hopeful that Christmas 2020 will be the last major holiday we have to spend alone.
Dress: Milly Hexagon Stitch Flare Dress
The dress is so soft and cozy, perfect for a rainy winter day. The fit-and-flare design is flattering, too, especially if you have wide hips like me.
Shoes: Jimmy Choo Bronx Black and Gold Buckle Sandals
There is a better shot of the purse below. It was really windy when I took the photo, so my hair is a mess, but you get the idea...

Today I'm wearing my first dress from A.L.C. I was excited to try out the brand, but I usually can't afford the dresses. Fortunately, this pretty blue dress with long sleeves and an asymmetrical hem recently went on sale. I love the print, the color and the overall innovative design.

2020 has come and gone. It's a new year, and after taking a few days off work to rest, relax and re-set, I'm raring to go!
Today's dress from Trina Turk is warm and comfortable. It's also, unfortunately, one of those dresses that seems to pick up every hair, thread and dust mote in the near vicinity! Oh well.
Outfit of the Day
I'm wearing a size two, but the dress seems to run large. There is a lot of extra material around the stomach.
Shoes: Jimmy Choo Love 85 Pointed Toe Pumps in Gold
I like how the gold in the shoes compliments the gold buttons on the sides of the skirt and arms.
Happy New Year Card
In case you didn't get an actual copy of our annual holiday/New Year card, I've included it below. We have sent one out every year but 2019, when we were so engrossed in getting the house ready to put on the market that I just didn't have the energy. I'm so glad that's behind us. If 2020 had any positives, it's been moving into our wonderful new house.
