Like Day... and Night

This outfit post contains two "versions"... one meant more for day time wear and the other for a night out on the town... if that's your idea of a good time. (Spoiler alert: They're actually the exact same outfit with a different coverup... Whoops!) Enjoy! xo
For the day...
I picked up this pretty lace + tulle dress at Pangea one day in Hillsboro Village because I seriously couldn't pass it up. (It's by Moon Collection, if you're wondering!) It reminded me of a childlike faerie dress or something. Like everything else white/off white I own, I may have put a hole or two in the skirt upon it's first wearing. Still, tulle is one of those materials where a rip here and there is easy to hide. I knew I wanted to pair it with my new Senso Diffusion shoes as soon as they came in the mail! I kept it casual with a cotton ruffle cardigan (one of my trusty favorites) and an off white zipper-embellished clutch. I never would've carried a clutch in the past.. I'm one of those girls who needs a purse that would break someone's back! I've been really digging how lightweight and minimalist a clutch can be! 

For the night...
I have to admit the "night" version is definitely my favorite. I felt so classy wearing this! I wore this version yesterday to meet with the landlord on the green Victorian bungalow! It's not all that often I dress in really classic pieces like a blazer. The boyfriend cuffs on this one is my favorite though! The peeking pinstripes are so fun. I opted for a black leather + gold stud fold-over clutch with this ensemble. I'd feel confident wearing this out to dinner + drinks with some girlfriends on a weekday evening... not that that ever happens haha! I'm more of a mid-day coffee shop type of gal, but still! The nipped waist of the buttoned blazer helps show that I actually do have a waist. That's one flaw with full tulle skirts... they definitely balloon out! I have so many black + silver studded belts but none with gold... that's officially going to the top of my "must have" list! Maybe Goodwill will turn up something awesome soon! (Please ignore my awkward lapel! I didn't realize it was acting up until the very end!)

  3. You look so beautiful! I adore these ensembles and those shoes are fierce! As a very tall gal, I wouldn't be able to wear them but if I did I'd probably team them with a black sheer shirt done up to the collar with a collar cuff and my trusty skinny jeans :)

  12. From the front, your shoes almost look like a version of those sweet rounded Miu Miu heels that were big last year. And oh my gosh...that dress...!

  20. Man those shoes are gorgeous. I love the look you've got going one. I would definitely wear them with a simple black dress (maybe a wiggle dress, or something with a pencil skirt. And BRIGHT tights. Then maybe a coordinating scarf.

  21. Argh! Those shoes!!! They are pretty cool :) I tried on a cream tulle dress a little while ago, but it wasn't as nice as yours. Maybe I'll just have to make one :) good luck with your house choice!! The house I'm in isn't fully fenced, so my puppy is an inside dog until we can get that done. I can't wait to have un-furry furniture!!

  24. Those shoes are incredible. I'd wear them with my pajamas! I'm wearing my wedge boots with midi-skirts at the moment to feel less frumpy (in the skirt, not the boots!)

  32. It's amazing what a difference one piece in an outfit can make. I love both versions. That dress is so beautiful! I don't wear white but if I did, I'd wear that dress.

  33. Ooh! Love these looks! My parents just bought me a bright red tulle dress for my graduation this year, and I love it, and I was thinking it'd be really fun to wear after my graduation for casual, but was a little shy about it. You've totally just convinced me that it can be done! Thank you so much. <3

  34. Your daring style inspired me to pick up a killer pair of velvet Jeffrey Campbell shoes today! I can't wait to try them out. Urban Outfitters is having a sale so some styles are down to $50 or $60 bucks before discount codes!

  35. Ooh, I love the looks and the shoes. I usually stray away from gold but I'd definitely rock these shoes, I'd probably wear the shoes with a similar look - I like to wear black and/or white paired with gold. I especially love the blazer and the studded clutch.

    I love the clutches you picked and I usually carry very large bags too, I had to downgrade from my usual bags because they were really hurting my back. You look lovely!

  41. You look stunningly gorgeous in both versions! I am the same way about purses though. I have never carried a clutch because I practically carry my life on my shoulders (ie. camera bag/book bag & purse!) haha!
