Dressy Dress-Down

Ever feel like you don't get enough wear out of your fancy dresses? I sometimes stare at them hanging in my closet and long to have an occasion to wear them... Other times, I bite the bullet and just decided to wear one! Today was one of the latter cases.

I really wanted to wear this silky, burgundy wrap-dress, but had to come up with a clever way of making it work for daytime-casual. I decided on key layering pieces for the under-layer. You can't go wrong with the white t-shirt and black legging combo, so naturally, that's what I opted for. Wearing the dress above this basic base layer really dressed it down and helped cover more skin, making it  appropriate daytime wear. However, I did not stop there! I took things an extra (casual) step further by adding a denim jacket and glitter sneakers. How's that for dressing down? Now, I don't have any children, but I bet some moms could totally rock this exact look at the park! How would you style a formal dress for daytime wear?
