Military Spring

I volunteered to help a friend with a local event here in town last Sunday.  It was going to be an afternoon event and I wanted to look cute, but I knew I was helping out so I also needed to be comfortable. I bought this dress last year to wear to dinner for our wedding anniversary and then also wore it to a garden party. I really like this dress, but I can't help but feel that it really isn't as dressy as I thought it was late last summer.  When I pulled it out for this event, I almost put it back, but then realized that it was perfect for my friend's event. The dress is comfortable and makes me look a little more formal, but it is casual enough that I am not overdressed. Since it is still cool, I paired it with my military green safari jacket and these green satin flats that have been in my closet for a couple of years now.  I quickly pulled my hair back so it wouldn't be getting in my way and grabbed my tote to head out the door.
