Max and Cleo Bow Dress

I wanted to show how to wear a satin/silky dress to a day event. I attended a government ceremony in which I had to dress more on the conservative side...

I love this Max and Cleo pastel blue dress and I wore it with a large silver and gray necklace to add some sparkle to it. I did not wear any other jewelry to not distract from my big bow- my dress was my statement piece today! I brought my purple Coach purse and tied a colorful silk scarf to it to add some color to my completed outfit.

With dresses like these, accessorizing can be tough because the dress itself has a lot going on. Just remember to also use your hair as an accessory and style your hair to add to your outfit. That will keep you from over-dressing your dress with jewelry and makeup! I went with pin-straight hair and kept it on my shoulders!
