My Style Challenge: Dress Over Pants

You heard me right - I decided to try wearing a dress over pants this weekend!! And if I can do it, so can you! I admit I went a bit on the safe side, choosing a dark navy dress over skinny black pants. But I did add some bold red heels! And I was surprised with how cute the outfit ended up looking!

Now I have just discovered mid outfit pulling together that I did not have a wallet in my purse... it was lost! So I forgot to put on any bracelets or rings and was very late to the Emporio Armani event I was attending.. womp womp! Luckily my wallet was found yesterday, so all is right in the world! Whew!
I'm wearing: Opening Ceremony dress, J Brand pants, Zara heels, Jill Stuart purse, Free People hat, belt from Anthropologie, headband worn as necklace from ShopBop.
The event I was seriously late to was the opening celebration of Emporio Armani at Tysons Galleria in Virginia. The afternoon, presented by Marie Claire, benefited the organization and included an in-store Fall 2012 runway presentation with seasonal trend commentary by Marie Claire Senior Fashion Director Zanna Rossi Roberts. Yeah, I missed that part! But I did see some fellow fashion bloggettes, like Kara of Politics of Pretty and Liz of So Much to Smile About!
And I did manage to snap a picture of Zanna before running back out to look everywhere and anywhere for the missing wallet. It may have messed up my day a bit but it's ok, because I got it back!
