Happy Sunday, all! Here's the second installment of Dressember looks. (More about the cause at the end of the post!)
A retro look with some pattern pairing of plaid and leopard. I wanted to show off the fun, twirly skirt, so here's my amateur attempt at a pirouette on the ice. (And I quite thankfully didn't break my head open. Haha.)
Have to start getting creative here in regards to warmth. Dresses are pretty drafty, folks. That's a nice thing in summer, but no one wants a cold blast of air on their legs in winter. Brrr! Weekend plans have been decided... shopping for fleece-lined tights!
A winterized version of my "Thanksgiving dress." Something about the rusty orange floral makes me think pumpkin pie. :)
This evening, I was playing piano for a choir Christmas concert, so I had an excuse to dress up a bit. Musicians have to wear black of course, but that doesn't mean it has to be boring. Anything is better in velvet, and I think this midi dress was just the ticket. This dress was a rummage sale find about 9 years ago, so it's had staying power!
December 8th (Sunday Best)
Repeating my green lace dress from this fall, and staying warm with a really big wool coat.
'Til next time,
Dressember is a movement to bring awareness to human trafficking. Since it began in 2013, the organization has raised millions of dollars - funds which go to aid victims of modern slavery. Aside from donating to the cause, you can take part in the Dressember Challenge by wearing a dress every day in December (or men can wear ties.) I'm going to give this challenge my best shot.

If you would like to make a donation to this important cause, I've set up an advocate's page for the Heartland Lady blog.
