Day and Night, Take 2

I was wondering if I would manage to finish a single set of day and night dresses for the Day and Night Dress Challenge, but I ultimately finished two!

Creative Counselor: day and night take 2

This is my second set of Day and Night dresses and my second challenge entry.

Panama Tee dress for “night”

I managed to sneak in my “night” dress for the “Day and Night Dress Challenge” just under the radar!

Creative Counselor: Panama Tee Dress

The day part of this challenge was easy — pretty much anything went for that one.  But night was a little more challenging.  I don’t have many occasions to wear fancy dresses, date nights tend to be pretty cas, and when I do want a night dress, I typically don’t wear black (a random, in my opinion, requirement for the “night” dress).
