Those that know me, know that I love all things feminine. I think dresses are the ultimate, girly, essential wardrobe pieces, because they are perfect to throw on and instantly look "fancifully" (yes, I just made up a word). Dresses = effortless instant style. One of my favorite ways to wear floral dresses is by pairing them with a bit of denim. There's something about the contrast of an ultra light, flirty, floral print dresses paired with the hard touch of denim. Adding a denim jacket, vest, or chambray shirt is the perfect way to tone down a dress (or almost any outfit that your not sure if it's gonna be too much for the event). A prime example of this was last summer when I went to a party that turned out to be a rather small, "lights on house warming" as opposed to the drunken "Jersey Shore club scene" in which I expected and wore a equally fitting dress for. Luckily I had my ever present, always popular chambray shirt tucked away in my bag. I quickly whipped it on and pretended to be going for a hipster "see thru dress meets part time artist look" and
was saved decreased the embarrassment of showing up to a party completely inappropriately dressed. Okay that's enough telling on myself and revealing my awkward stories… With out further adieu, check out the rest of the post to see how I pair "denim and dress".
