Let's Slowly Fade Away

I have this tiny obsession with making my fancy dresses "okay" for everyday wear.  While I have it under control now, I used to buy dresses just because they were cute (and especially if they were at a great price).  I never had buyer's remorse but I did end up with a couple closets filled with dresses that collected dust.  I don't get to go to that many fancy outings these days so now I've just figured a way to make them more functional.

The easiest way to dress down a fancy piece is to add a more casual cardigan.  This polka dot cardigan is a favorite of mine and at 25 dollars I bought it in a few colors.  I'll admit, these shoes are not casual in any way, but if I wanted to make this dress a little more casual I would add some studded ballerina flats.  I also wore a cute crystal wrap bracelet and cinched the dress with a pink belt.
 
How do you style your formal dresses for everyday?  I know to some people this isn't casual, but I swear to you this would be for me!
