OOTN: Drinks, Dinner, and Wedding!

I'm going through my ample backlog of OOTD photos and trying to pick the best to put up first.  These two outfits are not necessarily the "Best" so much they entail me being dressed up and for that reason, in my world, can go together in one post!

So first up.  This outfit is from a wedding we went to at the beginning of September.  We had 3 weddings back to back weekends earlier this month!  (Part of why I've been sooo busy and neglectful of my blog:)  Luckily, they were all local.

Dress:  White House Black Market 2008
Shoes:  Aerosole 2007
Necklace:  Forever 21 Fall 2009

I don't often shop at Black House White Market.  I'm not sure why, everything I've ever bought from there I have loved.  I have 4 dresses from there that I constantly rotate through for weddings.  This dress has attended 2 other weddings before this one.  I like the fit and I think the lace makes it edgy without being too provocative.  The shoes are old Aerosoles that I found at the back of my closet.  I've never even worn them! I also have them in brown and they are really comfortable!  The necklace is a great Forever 21 jewelry find...a double strand pearl necklace with a pearl and diamante brooch!  Love it!

Next up is an outfit from when my husband and I met some friends out for dinner and drinks.  I had spent the entire weekend in jeans and flipflops and I really wanted to dress up.  I threw this look together.

Dress:  Lauren Conrad for Kohls (picked up on sale for $20.)  I bought 2!
Cropped Jean Jacket:  Ann Taylor Loft spring 2010
Shoes:  Ann Taylor Strappy Sandals (no longer online)
Necklace:  Forever21 Box Chain Diamante twist (No longer but purchased in store last weekend)
Purse (not shown):  Gucci Joy Medium Shoulder Bag (click here)  (Mine has brown trim)
Watch:  Michael Kors Tortoise Chronograph Watch (click here)

This dress is a definite closet staple for me.  It is a heavy jersey material with an exposed silver back zip.  It has Pockets....LOVE!  and a sweet heart neckline....double LOVE!  It is just ultra flattering!  I've worn it with flipflops or strappy sandals as shown.  Wore the denim jacket because it was a little chilly at night!  Quick, easy, cute outfit!

What do you typically wear when you get dressed up?  Do you gravitate towards black like me?  Do you have a favorite dress?  Let me know!
