Changeup (See Jane Switch)

I really struggled with finding a dress for my wedding rehearsal dinner.  I think I bought about four dresses until my friend sent me a link with this French Connection number.  I just received it yesterday (some of you may have seen the pics I posted on twitter) and am definitely keeping it!

Although I'll be keeping it simple for the rehearsal dinner in Mexico with flats and minimal accessories (due to the sheer heat), I'm already thinking of how else I'll be wearing it this summer.  Here are some ways I plan to wear it after the wedding with similar items I already have in my closet:



Dressy
Alice + Olivia Blazer (I'll wear my H&M version seen here)

Casual
Uniqlo Military Hooded jacket (I have this jacket, worn here)
