Happy Memorial Day weekend, readers! Sunday is much more of a funday when we have a long weekend! A long weekend means a relaxed Sunday dinner out! Still cold and rainy, my boots made their third appearance this week, though tonight I added my jean jacket and lace dress.
Out to dinner:
I last wore this dress to work with a cardigan and heels. You can see the look here. Adding a belt, boots, and a jean jacket kept the outfit a bit funkier for a dinner out, while still being casual and comfortable.
Much like my boots, the black and brown belt has also been getting a lot of usage lately!
And, I loved that I could add my Pour La Victorie purse that I found on super clearance at DSW. The color of the dress and purse went great together. Dress: H&M ($15 marked down from $40)
Tights: Blue ($4 marked down from approx $20). These are actually the zipper tights that I wore earlier this week
Jacket: DKNY (no price can be recalled, over 10 years old!)
Boots: DSW ($15 marked down from $50)
Belt: Urban Outfitters ($5 marked down from approx $25)
Purse: Pour La Victorie at DSW ($33 marked down from $300)
Fashion Huntress tips:
1) I am always glad to mix and match pieces to get more wear out of them. In this outfit, I added boots, a belt, and a jean jacket to take this dress from work to dinner. I still have my fingers crossed that it will warm up enough so that I can wear this dress with sandals! Try adding a belt or different jewelry to change up a dress. I often try on a few belts or necklaces that I already own before I settle on something. You never know what pieces will look like together until you try them on!
2) I like to do high/low mixes of pieces. The purse is the highest end part of the outfit, and I think it takes the whole ensemble to a higher level. The mix of lace, denim, leather, and metal keeps this outfit visually interesting.
