Hi everyone, happy Monday!  A few weeks ago, I took a poll on my Instagram asking what you all wanted to see more of this holiday season – casual or fancy outfits – and formal outfits took the win, so I started off with two velvet dresses in this post and a velvet tulle combo in this one!  There will be plenty of casual outfits to come (plus this green sweater which pairs great with jeans!), but today I wanted to do a bit of a crossover between the two.  If you have a formal event coming up but feel most comfortable in a moto jacket or stacked heels, this is the perfect marriage between the two.  I found this gorgeous lace dress at Marshall’s, combined with TJMaxx, they are my two favorite places to find dresses – whether it’s for graduation season or the holidays!  It is absolutely perfect on it’s own – I love the high neckline and lace sleeves – but to add a personal touch to it I think a black faux leather jacket and peep toe booties are the perfect way to add a little edge to an otherwise formal piece!
