Happy Sunday lovely people! It is officially summer and I hope everyone is having a wonderful first weekend of summer! It rained here alllll week last week but luckily the weather has been beautiful this weekend! Yesterday Charlie and I ran a few errands and today we’re heading into the city to shoot with my July style crush! I also just want to use this opportunity to publicly say happy happy birthday to my sweet Momma who just celebrated her birthday yesterday! Love you endlessly and can’t wait to see you soon, Momma! Now, let’s get on with business shall we? Today I’m sharing the perfect summer LBD (little black dress) with you! Like literally perfect…
See?! I told you it was the perfect summer LBD! Honestly I think there are few things more classic than a little black dress. They’re effortless, versatile, stylish on anyone, timeless and flattering. But they’re not always seasonless. I honestly don’t think I’ve ever had a summer LBD. I’ve had black summer dresses but not like a little black dress. You know, the one that you can dress up or down and wear absolutely anywhere.
But that’s all changed now! This LBD is definitely more on the dressy side but you can totally dress it down (more on that later). What I love about this dress is that it’s simple and classic but not plain and boring. The bust details, minimally ruffled sleeves and subtly low back give the dress the exact right amount of exciting details without it becoming too much. I think when there is too much happening in a little black dress… well, that’s when it just becomes a black dress and loses its timeless and classic traits that make it “little.”
Anywho, I really wanted to get fancy with it so I dressed things up with sleek white summer heels, a dressier white and black handbag, some serious statement earrings and a dainty crystal necklace. The satin material of the dress keeps things on the dressier side but, like I said, you could totally dress things down a smidgen with flats and a crossbody bag.
Do you have a summer LBD? I feel like this is the perfect option to have on hand when you’re in a pinch! I’ve honestly never been so excited about a LBD and I’m truly not just saying that. I hope you enjoyed the post! I have a really fun post going live on Tuesday that I’m super excited about and think you guys are gonna love so stay tuned for that!
