||Jess Chic Boutique Floral Print Dress c/o| Born Pretty Store Acrylic Drop Necklace c/o | Target Navy Tights | Steve Madden Nude Pumps | Brina Box Pave Link Bracelet||

When I laid eyes on this Jess Chic dress, I thought it would be a fun alternative to prints you typically see during this time of the year. I, like most people, associate floral print with Spring or Summer. However, I think the colors and the way you style the print can totally make it work for the other half of the year! The navy base makes it less of a bright, in your face, pattern. You know I couldn't resist the chance to pair it with some colored tights, but I think it would great with black ones too!

Random question for you all. Have your heels ever stretched out so that they don't really fit anymore? I bought these Steve Madden Nude Pumps three years ago and they fit perfectly. I wore them for Tyler's graduation and kept them on until the end of the party, too! Now, though, they are so big they come up every time I step. Has this ever happened to you? If so, is there a way to fix it? They were expensive so I don't want to just toss them aside!

  3. Yes that's definitely happened to me with shoes. A lot of times I feel like it's due to seasons and me not swelling as much in the winter! You can try foot petals ball of foot pads or the heel pads. The gel inserts shrink the shoes too much for me, so I always just stick with the foamy pads.
    Loving the cobalt!

    1. I also find it makes a big difference whether I wear tights or not with the pumps. Sometimes the tights make my feet too slippery and make my feet fall out of then even faster!

  28. This is such fun change for the fall and winter months. The colors are gorg and I def know you will get more wear out of it during the spring and summer too. Maybe check to see if you can get something to put on the inside of your heel...that might help from slipping. Wish I was more help.

  36. I noticed the other day that a pair of heels felt like they were a little bigger than normal. But I was super cold and I know when you're gold, your fingers can shrink so maybe that's happens to feet too? Love your winter floral! I just ordered a dark floral dress :)

  41. I think it's a lot of fun to try to incorporate floral into the winter outfits. It's honestly so nice to see such summery patterns in the gloomy Christmas! You did a wonderful job by adding the bright and poppy blue tights! I love this outfit so much :)

    "Văn Sơn, Lưu Phong…" Ân Tố Tố thấp giọng nói vài câu, nhất thời chợt hiểu ra, chẳng trách vừa rồi Văn Sơn cứ tán tụng Phượng viên thiếu gia, thì ra là hắn tán tụng chính mình.

    Vô sỉ… Ân Tố Tố xem như hôm nay được lĩnh giáo bản lĩnh mặt dày của Lưu Phong, nàng cho tới bây giờ vẫn chưa thấy qua người nào ngay trước mặt mình mà tán dương mình, mặt lại không đỏ, tâm không kiêu, giống như là không có chuyện gì.

    "Hắc…hắc…" Lưu Phong cười:

    -Tố Tố, nàng cũng đừng trách ta lúc trước không nói tên thật nhé.

    Ân Tố Tố rất muốn mắng Lưu Phong, nhưng lại nghĩ, chính mình ban đầu cũng giống vậy, cũng che dấu thân phận, hai người xem như là bình thủ…

    Ân Nguyên Đạo nghe thấy hai chữ Văn Sơn, cũng hiểu được nguyên ủy bên trong, lần trước hắn nói chuyện với Ân Tố Tố mất hết nửa ngày. Lưu Phong cũng chính là Văn Sơn. Tiểu tử này phương thức cua gái cũng quả nhiên cao minh, có cơ hội cũng nên trao đổi, học hỏi nghiệm của hắn mới được.

    Trương Mỹ Nhân nhíu mày hỏi: "Tổng đốc đại nhân, rốt cuộc là đã xảy ra chuyện gì??"

    Ân Nguyên Đạo cười to, chỉ tay nói: "Tứ cô nương, hài tử này không hổ là do
