You know when you see a gorgeous dress and you just know it needs to be in your wardrobe? This dress I just happened to come across on the K-Lee Boutique Facebook page was posed on a mannequin and so many people were commenting on how much they loved it, wanted to know when the store was open, what sizes, how much… I knew it was mine and the store also just so happens to be local so after dropping off my little guy at Preschool I headed right over to the store to be the first one there and grab the dress. Turns out the others were already sold and only this one was left. Thankfully it fit perfectly and it was completely meant to be.
Now as a blogger who happens to be a mom, works from home and really doesn’t get that many opportunities to get all dressed up I had to figure out how to wear this on a more everyday level and also be able to dress it up for a fun date night (we all need a few of those in our lives). You can’t have a closet full of beautiful dresses and clothes if you are never going to wear it. So today I thought it would be fun to show you how to take this dress from everyday mom pick up, working at home, cuddling your honey on the couch to date night, girls night and special events.
My Day Style:
Burgundy Dress from K-Lee Boutique, Long Cardigan From Target (similar, similar), Steve Madden Peep Toe Bootie, Stella & Dot Infinity Scarf, Covet Sunday Bag, Stella & Dot Hammered Wire Earrings in Gold
For the day look, I added more casual peep toe heels, a long cardigan, a scarf and a beautiful everyday bag. Even though the material of this dress isn’t super fancy the cut brings it to that next level with a bit of a sexy look so adding items that really tone it down are very important.
My Night Style:
Burgundy Dress from K-Lee Boutique, Caged Booties (similar, similar), Covet Crosby – Leopard Calf Hair, Stella & Dot Garland Fringe Necklace, Hammered Wire Hoops, Leopard Watch and Addison Cuff
For the night look, the accessories make all the difference! Look at the caged booties, the fabulous leather and leopard clutch and a dramatic statement necklace. You can play up that sexy cut of the dress by adding only a few hand selected items and let the dress do all the work.
Hope you love today’s blog post and that dress!! So in love!!
Have a beautifully inspired day!
