Today I'm sharing an idea for taking a dress from day to night. I love the idea of putting a silk button front shirt under a dress for day. Try it with your own dresses - it will work in many cases, but a thick, textured dress paired with a thin, 100% silk top is one of the easiest ways to conceal the shirt buttons under the dress. For the night look, I removed the shirt and added ribbed gray tights and a sequin jacket. These outfits are a result of my third Instagram challenge with Francesca's - to see the other 3 challenges, follow along on Instagram. Do you ever wear collared shirts under a dress? How do you make an outfit more festive for after hours?

I was randomly browsing Zara last night and found so many cute things - here are a few of my favorites! I've been shopping Zara less often since one of the Orlando locations closed, but it's free shipping and they have a great selection online. Which piece is your favorite?
