Style Me Saturday - Casual Rehearsal Dinner

A reader wrote in wondering if I could give her a suggestion on what to wear to a casual rehearsal dinner. Here is her email:

"My boyfriend's sister is getting married at the end of February in San Diego. I have a dress for the wedding but I'm stuck on an outfit for the rehearsal dinner. I'm used to rehearsal dinners being cocktail attire but this one is more casual. I asked my boyfriend to ask his sister about the dress code and she said jeans and a nice top or a casual dress, and that a cocktail dress would be too fancy. Any ideas of what would look good? I'm open to jeans, a dress or a skirt. I want to look put together, somewhat conservative for his family (no low necklines), but still a little girly with a little edge or something that makes it fun. For things I already own that could be possibilities (not saying these need to be part of the look, just I already have them!) I have nice dark wash boot leg and skinny jeans as well as black skinny jeans, a nice black blazer, and a pair of great black suede pumps. My celeb style inspiration is Rachel Bilson, Blake Lively and Pippa Middleton."

I tried to use some of the items she mentioned already owning, adding just a top and pretty bracelet. Click on any of the images below for more information or to purchase! (Boot cut jeans would also look great, I just prefer skinny!)
