Tropically Festive in Rue 107

While snuggling up in a plush robe to ward off the chill of winter this morning, it feels hard to believe I was enjoying balmy 80 degree days in Miami just a week ago today.

I have a full trip recap with all my looks coming up, but I wanted to share this fun ruffle little black dress with you now for two reasons: 1) It is perfect for New Year’s Eve if you aren’t in a wintry climate; and 2) Rue 107 is having a rare sitewide sale now, and you can get 20% off this dress with the code HOLIDAY.

I paired it with block heels from Lane Bryant in a vibrant orange.  These simple heels are classic and incredibly comfortable given the wide width and the walkable lower heel.  They currently appear to be sold out in this color, but are available (and on sale!) in a lovely grey – a perfectly modern neutral.

I found this Rue 107 dress to be true to size, and the ultra-mini length made my legs look LONG despite me only being 5’4″ (but size up one if you’d like a bit more length).  Shop this Rue 107 Michelina Dress in black here; check it out in a bold chevron print here; and shop all of Rue 107 here.  And remember, Rue 107 comes in sizes XS through 3X, so you can shop if you are on the cusp too.
