Date Night Outfit of the Day

Dress: Helmut
Bracelet: Bauble Bar
Clutch: ASOS
Pumps: Shoe Mint

Recently someone asked me to help her put together a outfit to wear to a wedding.  It was an outdoor, evening, black-tie dinner.  She knew it was going to be really warm that day, and she had waited until the last minute to try to pull something together because she knew she'd have to wear a dress, and she didn't want to.  We talked about it being okay for her to wear pants, but she really felt she had to go in a dress.  I found this silky racer back dress that could be dressed or up down.  She has an athletic, inverted triangle body, so this cut works really well on her.  She incorporated chunky jewelry like the pieces here and let the neckline of the dress speak for itself.  This clutch is huge and squeezable, which makes it the perfect clutch for carrying an envelope for the couple as well as a pair of foldable flats to wear while dancing.
