Bridesmaid Remix with Sorella Vita.

If you missed Tuesday’s post, I styled a gorgeous navy bridesmaid dress from Sorella Vita the traditional way: topknot, black pumps + tights, and some statement earrings. Today is all about remixing– putting that, “You can totally wear your bridesmaid dress again!” claim to the test.

Satin is not the most casual of fabrics, so I knew right away I needed to bring down that formal vibe. Enter a chambray shirt cuffed at the sleeve + knotted at the waist; this ushered in the easy-going and cinched things up. I ditched the tights for bare legs (brr, but will totally play come spring) and a neutral printed pump. A high messy ponytail replaced the dressy topknot, and subbed in layered boho bright white + gold jewelry for those formal statement pieces.

Where could I wear this? To the office, a dinner date, any sort of ladies-who-lunch event, etc. Adding in a denim topper definitely cuts that formal factor in half, and keeping the hair easy + breezy helps make the outfit seem more day than night.

A massive thank you to my friends at Sorella Vita for the opportunity to style this dress on the blog this week. What a fun project! I am definitely reaching for this navy number for my next formal event, and love the idea of working it into the office wardrobe when worn with more casual pieces.

The folks at Better KC were kind enough to invite me back to have a chat about the color of the year (marsala!) on their morning program. Ah yes, live television, still terrifying.

Everyone have a lovely weekend!

  2. What a gorgeous post! I found you on the Style to Inspire LinkUp.

    Love the chambray shirt and the sunglasses. Is it sunny where you are? In Scotland, we are in the negative temperatures!!

    I’m hosting a linkup over on my blog. Its based in the UK (Scotland, to be exact) and I wondered if you wanted to come and share your post. I’d love to have you on the linkup (runs every Monday), maybe you’ll find some new UK readers also. 🙂 Linkups are new to the UK so I really want to try and promote it with some great bloggers that I know from US LinkUps. If you’re up for sharing your post, u can do so here – http://www.atouchoftartan.co.uk/
