Express Holiday - STYLE ME GRASIE

With Thanksgiving just 10 days away, I’m excited to start dressing myself (and the hubs) in Holiday garb. It’s a special time of year full of dinners, shopping and parties, which means lots of outfits to put together. And to help get ready for it, I’ve teamed up with Express to share some holiday inspiration. Throughout the day, check back for additional posts featuring Damien and myself dressed up for the holiday season. Starting with these two looks perfect for Thanksgiving dinner or any seasonal dinner party. Umm, how cute is my man?! I’d say he was born to be a blogger…hehe.

    Both outfits are perfect for Thanksgiving dinner, or just fall in general. Very nicely styled and it’s really fun to see a head-to-toe men’s look, too. (Did you pick his clothes or did he?) Great choice of scenery, too, by the way!

    • Thanks! Check back at 12p EST and 4p EST to see two more complete looks on both of us. For his outfits we went shopping together so there was a little input from both of us! xo

    Thanks for posting this! I absolutely fell in love with your look and went to Express right after work to stock up on those tights and the dress. However, I tried on the dress and found it incredibly short. I’m 5’8″ so maybe this is just a height issue?

    I’m wondering if you could provide some feedback to Express to offer this in a “long” so that I could wear it like you with sheer tights. As is, I’d be showing a little too much booty unless I wear it with thick leggings!

    Thanks again for putting these together – I love seeing looks I can actually get for myself right away!

    • Hi Emily! Thanks for the great comment. I am also 5’8″ and now that I look back at the photos, the dress is a tad short on me 🙂 But, I think it really depends on the height of the heels you wear with it. Here, I paired it with booties with a pretty modest heel, which is why is probably doesn’t look too short. Did you have high heels on? Maybe try it with flat boots or a small heel or sometimes a larger size is a little longer without being that much bigger. Either way I’ll definitely give Express your feedback and I’m so happy you like the looks enough to go to a store right after work! xo

        Going for a bigger size is a great idea. I tried on a small because that’s the size that usually fits me at Express, but perhaps the medium is a better length and would allow for a little more room to move arms up and down without fear of flashing!

        Thanks for your prompt response!
