Happy, happy, Friday! However, this is one week I’m not ready to see end! We’ve had a glorious time exploring Yellowstone and Montana, and the last few days have been full of family pre-wedding activities. I’ve touched on this aspect of my family dynamic before, so you know this time spent together is extra special.
Tonight is the wedding, and I’m honored to stand up for my sister as she marries a truly kind, honorable, funny man, who adores her to pieces. Really, what more could any of us want for our friends, sisters, and daughters? Our little one is the flower girl, and has been watching their affection for each other all week. I pray she files these solid, supportive relationships away in her heart, and uses them as examples for her own future relationship.
That’s enough sap for one day…let’s talk Fashion! You guys have seen this dress a few times in the past few months…it’s served me well several times, including the Dallas Style Conference, our Alaskan cruise, and again last night for the rehearsal dinner.
This isn’t a typical 3 Ways post where I show you completely different looks, or how to wear it Day to Night. So far this has been an evenings-only dress for me, but of course I don’t wear it the same way every time. The black and white color palette means pretty much anything goes…and the graphic print keeps it anything but basic.

I love how just the swapping of shoes and accessories can make the dress chic, playful or even a little sexy. The leopard gave the whimsical dress a bit of grown-up sex appeal, which was perfect for dinner on the cruise. I could also easily transition it to day by following this formula or this one.
And since I’m always looking for new ways to wear old things, I paired the dress with these shoes for last night’s rehearsal dinner. Sassy, if I do say so myself! Which way is your favorite? Happy weekend, love bugs!
