Re-Working An Old Favorite

This old Asos sheath dress has been one of my favorite items in my closet. I love the fun burnt orange-y color and the fit of the dress. It has always been a work staple and a dress that's great worn alone or with a collared shirt underneath. I wanted to maximize the dress even more and wear it out casually on the weekends. Usually I'd pair this dress with a blazer for work, but I opted for a denim jacket for a laid back look. I thought booties would be more ideal than pumps since they are more fun and comfortable. I chose a chevron necklace for a pop of interest and to add a splash contrast against the dress.
Do you think this combination works or should this sheath dress be paired with dressier items? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
Asos Petite Pencil Dress. Sold Out. (similar here & here which looks almost identical but $$$!)
H&M Denim Jacket. (similar here & here)
  BP.  'Trolley' Ankle Boot. Size 5. Cognac leather. My new favorite pair of shoes to walk in! They are incredibly comfortable. Read my review here.

  1. Absolutely works! I was actually thinking of wearing something similar to an event in a few weeks! I have a purple pencil dress and a jean jacket! Sounds awesome to me too!! katejones.me

  2. WOw you are looking so cute in red dress :)

  3. I think this is a great way to rework a dress you would normally wear for work! The lovely orange color definitely lends itself for versatile purposes. I hope Asos brings that dress back in stock - it's lovely!
