My sorority had a "formal" this weekend and this is what I wore. In case anyone is wondering, I'm in Kappa Kappa Gamma. There was no particular dress code and people were wearing everything from high heels to worn-out sneakers. I think you can never go wrong pairing a casual summer dress with heels. It's like the happy medium between formal and daytime casual.
My dress is from Tobi; I love this brand (I've written a post about them before) they have really nice dresses and rompers for different occasions. This one I got during their Black Friday sale, but since it's so cold in Chicago, this is my first time wearing it. It was honestly still too cold for a summer dress which is why I paired it with this beautiful suit-like coat from Banana Republic. My shoes are from like 2013 from Zara, and my bag is Kate Spade -- who is a fellow Kappa!
