Fashion Friday: The Little Red Dress

Two nights ago, Logan and I had a date night with some friends that included a dinner and a live play.  I was super excited to check out our local, gluten free fine dining restaurant, Leyda's.   The food was 100% delicious and was a hit all around!!

 

In the spirit of Valentines Day that is fast approaching, I decided to wear this little red dress that's been hanging at the back of my closet for forever.  This dress is OLD, like 5 years old, but it's a classic piece and in great condition so I keep it around.  This dress used to be my GO-TO dress for anything important, presentations, parent teacher conferences, interviews, etc.  I always felt good in it.  I remember my colleague Jaime saying to me the morning we were going to present to a group of teachers, "I knew you were going to wear your red dress today, because you always wear it when you have to present."  It's been in retirement for a few years but once I put it on I was reminded why I love it so much. 

 

#1 Red dress, blazer and booties.  I will be wearing this to the office on Valentines Day. (I just realized that I seem to have a lot of sass in the second picture which is not like me, and I will be  leaving it at home)





#2 Red dress, fuzzy cardigan and strappy heels.  I wore this out for dinner mainly because it was -35C.  Brrr.  I really needed to keep toasty warm during dinner and the play so it just felt like the better choice for the freezing cold weather.




 

I added some bling by wearing my H & B rose gold jewelry, which I always wear.  I decided to stack the H & B bracelet with my pearl bracelets as well to make them stand out a little more.  I also added a skinny black belt just to pull in the waist a little bit.  Overall I am happy with both outfits and thrilled to have this dress out of retirement!

 

Happy weekend all!
