Every year when the festive season rolls around, I start to feel slightly anxious with the thought of having to find outfits for all the Christmas events. I mean don’t get me wrong, I love shopping (and the Christmas season!) but I am really not a fan of buying one-wear-only party dresses for said events.
I have definitely become more mindful of purchasing new things as I get older, and I rarely buy ‘special occasion’ pieces that will only be worn once then discarded to the back of the closet anymore. One of the ways I have been ensuring I only purchase versatile pieces for the silly season, is by coming up with ways to ‘dress down’ those party dresses (or in this case, a party playsuit!) 

Firstly though, can we just take a moment to appreciate how darn cute this playsuit is! It’s floral and pink all over, which is not something I would normally wear, but honestly I felt amazing in it! (Bonus points because it is roomy enough for my bump too!!) I have worn it countless times already, during the day and at night, so this one definitely ticks all of the festive-season-party-dress-purchase boxes for me!

Obviously your party dresses are made for, well parties.. but with a few simple tweaks they can be worn at any time of the day. My number one way to style a party dress for daytime is to team it back with my go-to shoe of choice, sneakers. Not only will you instantly dress down your look, but you will be comfy too! Winning! 
Next, I reach for some denim. A denim jacket is a great way to make even the sparkliest of party dresses more day wear appropriate.
Lastly, I would keep the accessories minimal and go for bags in lighter colours. Save your black bags/clutches for your night time look!

    Yes, I love investing in a dress I can wear a few ways and make the most out of. Definitely, something we have to think about toward the festive season too.
