Military Saved the Dress

//work wear// Dress: H&M / Jacket: Michael Kors / Wedges: Kelsi Dagger / Bag: TJ Maxx / Belt: F21 / Watch: Michael Kors / Bracelets: J. Crew & Niche Boutique /

This shift dress has only been worn a few times, which is quite unfortunate. I hate when clothing feels neglected hanging in my closet {yes, my clothes have feelings too}. But it's such a pretty 3/4 sleeve silky  dress that deserves to be out and about mingling with military jackets all day - indoors/air conditioning I might add. It's not cool enough for frequent layering just yet, but I couldn't help myself on this morning. For so long this dress had me uninspired, only being able to switch out accessories for a "different look." So when I threw my trusty military jacket over it, the whole "summer meets fall" look I'd been hoping for came together. Now this dress can rest happily in my closet until I get that itch again for it to come out and play. 

Hopefully everyone has a Fashion's Night Out event to go to in their area tonight! I'll be attending a FNO kickoff reception prior to mingling in the Social Media Lounge at the Artsgarden and Circle Centere Mall. If any of my readers will be down that way, PLEASE make sure you come and say hi! If you need more details about #FNOindy, make sure and read my article for the IndySpectator {here} or check out Pattern's site {here}. Can't wait to see what everyone buys! 

Don't forget to follow me on Twitter & Instagram {@alliesbubble} to see how I'm celebrating FNO! I'll keep you updated every step of the way :)
