Do you have a dress that you never wear because you bought it as a "going out" dress, and never thought of it in any other way? That's what I did with this awesome, red, Max Studio number. I bought it as a going out dress, so it only gets used once in a while.
But the thing is, a lot of evening dresses work great in the day time, too! I was flipping through a magazine the other day when I saw a red summer dress, and decided to pull this one out once and for all (and not to go out)!!
It's a frilly, tank dress, so to make it more appropriate and casual for the day I threw on my jean jacket and paired everything with converse high tops. These are a special pair - see the steal your face symbol on the side?! The right tennies easily tone down a dress.
Anyway, I'm in New Jersey this morning - presenting at a conference at Princeton on Friday, and seeing some family while I'm at it =) Good deal!
Have a wonderful Thursday,
