I have a serious love hate relationship with getting dressed up. Half of me loves dressing up for special occasions-- looking all fancy-schmancy; but the other half of me is just a lazy-bum who loves to be comfortable. Plus dressing formally generally means sticking out like a sore thumb here in the sunshine state, where everyone always looks like they're on a beach vacation. This split-style-personality causes me to search for pieces that I can wear to formal occasions and double as casual wear.
I saw this dress on the Free People website and fell in love, the lace is so feminine and romantic. At first glance I would immediately think to pair it will some stilettos for a great date night look; but the more practical side of me decided to throw on a denim jacket and sandals. Styling this dress more casually made it perfect for Saturday afternoon lunch and shopping.
