Two Ways To Wear: Silk Slip Dress [in collaboration with thredUP]

Happy Saturday babes! I'm here with a little style inspiration for your weekend. One of my favorite trends right now is the silk slip dress. It's sexy made simple and incredibly versatile. But before we dive into this styling I wanted to introduce you to thredUP, an online business based out of San Francisco. ThredUP is all about loving clothes and then REloving clothes. Their site contains tons of like-new clothes from brand names you know and love to top of the line designers, all at a fraction of the cost. For example, the dress in today's post is a Mara Hoffman silk design that retails at $434.00. On thredUP? $78.49. That's over 80% off people. But before you run off to start filling your cart, let's check out this styling.

As I said before, the silk slip dress is uber versatile and today you're going to see it two ways: Day and Night. For Day I did the simplest thing possible, I put a jean jacket with it. Seriously, it's that easy. On top of the jean jacket being a forever staple, denim is having a tremendous moment right now. Don't believe me? Check out the April issue of Style Watch Magazine. A casual wedge was the only other ingredient to finish off this casual look.

Look number two, the formal Night look, is a favorite of mine AND an outfit I'll be sporting at Nashville Fashion Week. Same dress, only this time I employed the elegance of a cape with a hint of blazer and a killer statement heel. Fun fact: You can snag these lace-up heels at Kohl's in the LC Lauren Conrad collection for only $49.99! (shocking, I know). I've linked them --> HERE
