It is hard to venture out of the normal pretty dress territory when putting together an outfit for a more formal occasion. While a classy one-piece is a no-brainer, I find that you tend to lose a bit of personality with a simple dress. For this outfit, I wore centered my look around a strappy, lacey camisole. The cobalt blue catches the eye and the details are super intricate.
To not take the spotlight away from the top, I paired a simple midi skirt with it. To make this outfit really my own, I added my favourite texture to the look: leather. The leather vest adds some edgy-ness to the look. To make it travel-friendly, I opted for some loafers instead of heels. The thick soles gave me some height while still being super comfortable to walk in.
