WIW and now for something completely different

We're going to see a friend's band at a local performance space. I wanted to wear something a little different. I tried a dress with jeans and nude boots. I need blond hair to bookend today. Hope everyone is having a great night.

    WOW! I love this on you Rita! I think the nude boots work just fine - even with your dark hair. The lighter colour in the dress is all you need for bookending. Your proportions with the short over long is fabulous! Have a great time - you look HOT!

    Awesome! Dress over pants is one of my favorite looks and you have done this really well. I think the softer color in the dress bookends the boots and your proportions here are good. Have avgreat time.

    No blond needed--The dress pattern and boots tie together perfectly and the look is very balanced. Thumbs up! Have a great evening out!

    It works. I think the white cuffs on your blazer helps.

    LOVE! Channeling a little UWP here!

    Rita, I like what you've done here, with the cute dress and jeans and I love your boots! What a fun night you've got going. Have fun and know there will be heads turning!

  • Diana replied 6 years ago

    Love this! Boots totally work with the light colors in the dress.

  • rachylou replied 6 years ago

    Rita, you're starting to go all dark and edgy! The outfit is definitely hot :)

    SO. FAB.

  • Joy replied 6 years ago

    More love here. Your fabulous hair makes it work. Perfect for a concert.

    I LOVE THIS. And you do *not* need blonde hair!

  • Jilly replied 6 years ago

    So fun! You look completely ready to rock out. Love the whole combo of dress, jeans and boots

  • Suz replied 6 years ago

    You SOOOOO do NOT need blonde hair for this look! The dress does it for you perfectly! You look fabulous! And what a creative idea. Hope you have a great time.

  • Julie replied 6 years ago

    Welcome to the dark side!! I am so jealous of your dress and jeans outfit. Hope you don't mind if I blatantly steal your dress. Will be keeping my eye our for one just like it in Halifax, tomorrow.

    Both thumbs up

    Love it! You look great - have a FABULOUS time!

  • Mochi replied 6 years ago

    In your own words, sweet! I'm glad you took this risk and think it paid off nicely. And as everyone's saying, no need for lighter hair--the colors all harmonize so well here.

  • Aida replied 6 years ago

    Yesss this looks fabulous Rita! No need to worry about being blonde, you have plenty of lightness in the dres and the blazer cuffs :) You should totally wear this again!

  • ManidipaM replied 6 years ago

    You look terrific! Not every great outfit has to be bookended, you know? Looks at Angie's recent wedding outfits --- her hair is neither red nor black/grey, right?

    ETA: Also, with nude boots, the proportions are like clamdiggers under a dress/tunic plus nude/low-contrast shoe to my eye.

    Totally fab. I'm often on the fence about a dress over pants but this one looks great. I like that the dress picks up on the hair color and the boot color. Great outfit.

  • kellygirl replied 6 years ago

    Love this, Rita! I'm all for dress over pants. You look amazing!

  • christieanne replied 6 years ago

    Wow! Love that cropped jacket added in to complete the look.

  • Scarlet replied 6 years ago

    I think the boots pick up the colors in your dress, so you don't need to be blonde :) I would really like this outfit with black legging too.

  • Janet replied 6 years ago

    Like dianthus, I'm not always a fan of the dress with jeans look, but I really like what you've done here. Hope you had a great time!

  • modgrl replied 6 years ago

    Black leggings would have been nice but maybe a bit too dressy. I already felt pretty overdressed amongst the arty post-college and musician crowd. I could take it down a notch with black boots but that felt like it would go against the spirit of where I am heading style wise these days. Thanks for your nice comments, they mean a lot!!

    Really nice outfit on you. You look great.
