Ok, ladies. Let’s put down our schedules and to do lists for just a moment and talk about us…as women. Not wives. Not moms. Not family social planners and CFOs. Just women who occasionally need to put aside everything else and just feel like empowered individuals and human beings without wearing ALL THE HATS.
This is about the time every year where I start thinking, “man, I could use a break.” All the kids have new clothes, routines are in check, hubby’s business travel schedule is over for the year, the household is in perfect working order. But, (dun dun dun) we’re about to gear up for the holidays.
Ugh. Can I just get a minute?
Well, I’m stepping back before the holidays this year and spending some much needed time focusing on myself. Starting with a makeover!
Who’s with me?
I teased last week that I got a sneak peek of the holiday trends that will be featured in the upcoming TangerStyle Magazine (which should be in your mailbox right now!). But what I didn’t tell you is that it totally inspired this much needed moment of self reflection.
Knowing that multiple holiday parties and social events are right around the corner, I decided to up my game this year with my dress option(s). Besides, what better way to feel like you did pre-baby(ies) than buying semi-formal dresses that are total closet eye candy and make you look for another reason to put it on and strut your stuff. Am I right?
Well…I am ALL ABOUT THAT LACE right now!
Check out these stunning options from the magazine that were my shopping inspiration!
Lace is ultra feminine, oh-so delicate and super flattering. It’s exactly what I needed to kick-start my makeover.
I settled on this dress from Neiman Marcus Last Call for the holiday party. And no, I’m not 6 feet tall with killer legs, but I’m still going to own it!
But I couldn’t stop there! I found several other pieces that have hints of lace and can be dressed up or down depending on my social agenda.
I also found these killer accessories and totally fabulous shoes to refresh my collection.
No mommy guilt here. I hope you get inspired to treat yourselves and do the same. You MORE than deserve it and, besides, you need to take advantage of those TangerStyle coupons while you still can!
