When I was a in my second year of college, my mother lent me this evening gown to wear to a school formal. I absolutely loved the simplicity and elegance, I felt sexy and understated. I did not need to fuss or worry about showing too much or being cold. It was the perfect balance. All these years later, I still think it's beautiful. Yesterday, my mother GAVE me the dress! I have no formal event listed on my calendar and thought, why let such a spectacular garment go to waste?! And thus, today's outfit was put together. To help make it a day-to-day outfit I paired it with knee-high wool socks and my favorite thrifted item- my J-crew leather riding boots (that I have owned for 9 years and must be at least 15 years old themselves) and a leather braided belt. I kept my makeup and jewelry simple as well. Pale pink lips- thank you Cover Girl and my outrageously perfect mascara from Benefit. My bracelet was a gift from my mother that she sent to me while I was living over seas.
Simple-country jacket to finish it all off.
