With so many holiday events happening in the next few weeks, I constantly find myself preoccupied with image and comparison. I tell myself one dress can’t possibly be worn twice if any guests overlap. I fret over being underdressed or way too flashy. In reality, I’m likely the only one who’d even notice or care. So I’ve been practicing mental barriers: the moment one of those thoughts enters my head, I push it aside by focusing on what is most anticipated about the event (seeing an old friend, catching up with a colleague, or tasting the sweetest Prosecco). And this simple lace slip dress is the perfect thing to carry me from one party to the next without those nagging thoughts.
