I did it up the best way I know how–traditional Aurora elements like big shoes, scarves, and fishnets. I usually try to casual-up a dress, so I went for my old reliable jean jacket. I’m looking for another one at a thrift store, so I can cut off the sleeves and use it like a vest. Jean jackets are crazy! I almost never wear jeans on my lower half, but I don’t know what I did before I had a jean jacket. It goes with everything!
I also hiked up the skirt with a belt (I am petrified of looking stumpy and an easy way to combat this, I’m convinced, is a tall heel with a lot of leg). This gave the skirt some extra flare as well. So fun when I spin!
