Satin is one of those trends that is popping up now. When you think of satin, what do you think of? I do think of it more for dressier occasions, which is why I am sharing this dress from Zara I bought about 3 -4 years ago.
Silver and Gold, Silver and Gold… You know the song by Burl Ives? I used to play it on my mom’s piano But, Over the Christmas Holiday, I love some sparkle in usually gold and I immediately thought of this satin mustard gold dress with my favorite vintage earrings. My Tapestry bag is also from Zara a few years ago, I liked the boxy shape and the vintage look. It adds a bit more color to the look and fits the style. I love textured tights, and you have seen these shoes several times now on the blog. I have black kitten heels, but I have wanted some block-heeled black pumps. I am waiting on these Marc Fisher ones and hope they fit! They are on sale now!
The dress is a shift dress that floats away from the body and works for all body shapes. You may remember the mustard dress I wore for the summer, and how much I do love this color with my complexion and hair. And let’s face it, if it isn’t sunny outside, I’ll bring the sunshine in!
How was your weekend? My hubby and I went with my sister and niece to Christmas in Davidson. It is a local event each year with carriage rides, local businesses opening their doors, carolers, a Live Nativity, and other Christmas entertainment. My students and I would perform there ‘on the Green” each year when I taught Music at Woodland School. I have such great memories of the students singing carols with my direction It was so busy and we had a great time! I do enjoy spending time with family and my niece and I share a special little bond.
I love attending Christmas events in Charlotte, as it really gets me in the mood for the Holiday. Sunday we put ornaments on our tree, realizing we need a bigger tree from the ornament collection we have created over the years. I still have Mrs. Jannenga ornaments from the kids I taught years ago. We strung lights on our outside tree and I finished wrapping gifts.
I love the collar and the back portion of this dress. The sleeves also have 2 large gold buttons to dress up the look.
My dress is about 3-4 years old from Zara, but this dress is available on Nordstrom if you want a mustard satin dress in a midi style. Under $50!
