Sometimes a Bird just needs to feel pretty, and a pretty Birdie doesn't always need a Jaunty date at her side to do something nice. I'll be the first to admit I'm blessed to have my fella, Mr. Magpie, but sweetheart or not, it's a nice thing to preen one's feathers and go out for a night on the town and dress up for no one other than oneself. A pretty dress shouldn't just be for weddings and parties. I was particularly Inspired by this pairing of a bomber jacket and a silver sheath by Tommy Hilfiger, mostly because it takes a trend I especially like: dressing down a formal look and making it into a more basic evening look. Mixing materials that seem like they wouldn't fit is a creative way of getting opposites to work for a versatile look.

Pulling items from the Jaunty Wardrobe, this look features an old silver sheath dress from Ann Taylor Loft, a faux leather jacket from Arden B, a faux snakeskin wallet clutch that was a gift, colored tights, suede booties from The Bay, and a Jaunty headband crafted by the Bird herself.
