It’s only Halloween…Happy Halloween by the way, but I can’t help but think ahead to the upcoming holidays when wearing this midnight blue Donna Morgan velvet dress.  It just screams holiday parties!

Let’s be honest, the holidays will be here before we know it and for once I feel like I will actually be more prepared than I’ve been in years past.  I’m motivated to go ahead and get my Christmas shopping done and to have plenty of holiday party outfit options in my closet.
What I love most about this velvet dress is the deep midnight blue color and the off the shoulder fit.  The bell sleeves are also a beautiful touch.  I styled this dress with a closed toe heel but I recommend styling this dress with a gorgeous open toe heel or strappy heel for your holiday parties.    Because of its solid color, this dress is a blank slate so get creative and don’t be afraid to add other jewel tone pieces like this gorgeous jeweled clutch!
We will be heading out tonight to trick or treat with Darth Vader and a black cat!  It’s still hard to believe that today is Halloween…October flew by.  Now if time would just slow down so we can enjoy these next few holidays.
As always, thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a great start to your week!
