Favorite High Slit Bodycon Dress Under $35…

High Slit Bodycon Midi Dress $31 - Sunshine & Stilettos Blog (Instagram: @katlynmaupin)
Initially when I photographed this high slit bodycon dress, I intended to share it as an option for a Christmas party (peep the Christmas wreaths hanging on the windows), but life got a little crazy and I never got around to posting it…so now it’s a Valentine’s Day dress post! Haha! I wanted to share it regardless of the awkward Christmas wreaths in the background, because this dress is one of my all-time favorites! It’s insanely flattering (totally sucks you in!), and the length combined with the slit adds the perfect amount of sexiness without being too “in your face” about it! I was so surprised when I saw it’s only $31, so I went back and bought it in 3 other colors too! The red color is perfect for Valentine’s Day date night with your signifiant other or “Galentine’s” for a night out with your girlfriends! It runs pretty TTS – I’m wearing the size 0 for reference, so I would just go with your normal size!

What are y’all’s Valentine’s Day plans?! Dylan refuses to tell me, but we’ve gone to see the 50 Shade’s movies on Valentine’s the past two years since that’s the day they release, so maybe that’s a tradition now? Haha! I’m excited to see the third one! I wasn’t super impressed with the first, but I did Continue Reading

I can’t believe it’s already almost 2018! These past few months have flown by! I wanted to put together a huge dress suite for NYE, because time is running out to order in time for the 31st! I always gravitate toward sequin dresses for New Year’s Eve, because I am completely obsessed with looking like a disco ball. And after all, it’s the one day of the year that it’s not only acceptable, but also encouraged. If you aren’t a sequins fan though, there are a ton of other cute trends for NYE this year – velvet, fringe, and little red dresses! Hopefully this helps…I know I always get so stressed about what to wear for NYE, haha!

Here are some other options below not included in the above clickable graphic!

5 Tips for Company Holiday Party Dressing with Review Australia…

Pink Lace Midi Dress - Holiday Party Look - Sunshine & Stilettos Blog (Instagram: @katlynmaupin)

My favorite time of the year is officially here! December is my favorite month EVER! Holiday cheer is in the air, and the month is fun-filled with family time, vacations, and holiday parties! When it comes to company holiday parties, navigating what to wear can be a little tricky. And it becomes even more tricky if you’re going as a guest with your significant other! The last thing you want to do is dress too immodestly, embarrassing your significant other in front of his boss and being the talk of the workplace (for the wrong reasons) the entire next week! Review Australia has a ton of great options for any company Christmas parties that you may have coming up! The quality is SO SO good! They also offer super quick express shipping, so you won’t have to worry about not getting the perfect outfit in time for the party! Here are some tips to ensure you’re company holiday party look is boss-approved:

1. Location: Find out beforehand where exactly the party will be hosted. Will it be in the office? Or a completely separate venue? How dressy is the venue? Will it be laid-back? Or will there be reindeer ice sculptures adorning every corner of the room? Haha! But seriously, location is important. Every year, I go to Dylan’s company Christmas party at a ranch. It’s super laid-back with children evvveeerrryyywhere (there’s even a petting zoo and jumpolines), so if I showed up in a gold sequin shift dress, black strappy heel and red lip, I would be extremely out of place!

2. Consider the Time of Day: Is the company party during office hours or is it in the evening? If it’s during office hours, opt for a more conservative party look that follows office dress code. This pink lace dress from Review Australia is perfect for a company holiday party during office hours. It’s feminine and figure flattering, while still keeping both your legs and chest covered. If the company party is after hours, you typically have a little more wiggle room with dress code and can let your hair down – just don’t take it too far. After all, you’re still with people from the workplace regardless of the time of day. It’s never appropriate to wear a super low-cut top or dress in my opinion, but you can definitely get away with a little shorter hemline.

3. Bump Up Your Accessory Game: Sporting a statement piece can be a great way to keep it conservative clothing-wise, yet still show your personality! High necklines offer the perfect opportunity for a good statement necklace or big sparkly earrings! Continue Reading
