It seems to be that time of the year where there are family dinners, and Christmas parties going on every week. I love this time of year for busting out my party dresses and having a chance to get dolled up. So even for Thanksgiving or a family dinner I tend to be the most dressed up, but I like to think it's better to be overdressed than underdressed. I spend 80% of my week in workout gear so whenever I can get a bit dressier I try to. 
This simple palette of grey, black and a pop of red is always a go-to for holiday parties. It's easy, classic and always looks great. I've had this dress for years and I still love it, it has pockets, the detail on the back is gorgeous and it's comfortable. 1 small problem: All that strength training has made my butt/thighs too big and I actually ripped it doing lunges. UGH. The down side of being a fit female, they don't make clothes for us!
