LRD Arrival

Dress: BCBG (old, short/long here) / Tights: Merona Target / Shoes: Nine West (old, similar here)
Coat: Cole Haan (old, similar here) / Handbag: H&M / Lips: Stila Cosmetics (beso)

The wait is over. After a 10 hour flight that was quite pleasant, actually incredibly phenomenal since our plane flew directly through Auroras Borealis playground. If only you could understand the feeling of experiencing this magical event...it was a dream come true! In that moment, I forgot about all the pain and heartbreak that blanketed the ground below. A few hours later it was wonderful to touchdown onto this winter wonderland! Because of Swedens' proximity to the Arctic Circle, they have very little daylight during the winter. Luckily February's moon rise is pretty close to that of back home in the States. But prior to February, the sun can go down as early as 2pm! Riding the Arlanda Express to the City I was mesmorized by the beauty of the city. Think downtown San Francisco with century old architecture and pockets of the sea nested throughout the city. Simply gorgeous!

After relentlessly researching for things to do, we came across an expat group that had a dinner party planned the night I arrived. As soon as I checked into the Hotel I threw on my LRD (little red dress) and was ready to paint the town! There's no way I would be able to leave any establishment without being fully covered. So here here's my take on the must have's for those cold dressy evenings out:

1) Medium to heavy weight shawl- when wearing cocktail attire most venues have coat check. As soon as you reveal your fabulous frock, the AC will most definitely hit you quick! A scarf or shawl is the perfect solution to maintaining comfortable body temp.
2) Opaque tights- dearie, I know your dress will look so much better showing your lovely long legs, believe me, I know! But, pairing with dark opaque tights will not take away from the look. Especially paired with a nice pair of stilettos. 
3) Covered shoes: there are tons of shoe options to keep those pretty toes nice and cozy in evening wear. I went with booties tonight but my other option was a pair of patent leather pumps.

What's your favorite cold evening out look?!
