Out To Dinner with Friends or a Casual Shopping Trip?

I haven't done a post putting together and outfit I would wear in ages. It's about time for me to change this.

I came across this dress:

I really love it and think it would be great with these boots:

And then add some nude colour tights or thicker pantyhose (Yes, I said pantyhose. With this outfit they would work.) with a nice sheen to them. 

Then carry this purse to add a splash of colour to the outfit:

I think that the outfit calls for not over-doing it with jewelry so would keep it simple and maybe just wear a bold, silver, ring like this one:

Complete outfit, minus jacket of course. I would definitely wear that all together because I like bold, but sleek, outfits. It would be great to wear out to an casual dinner with friends or out to a martini bar meet-up.

Of course, it is fun when a website puts an outfit together to show off clothing and I agree with their choice like this one at Net-A-Porter:

I could definitely see myself wear that whole outfit to run around town on a casual day of shopping. It has that laid-back, California, vibe to it that my casual clothing has. 

I like both outfits and would definitely wear both of them.
