The Simple LBD

The older I get, or I really should say, the more mature I get (lol) the more simple I get. Less is more you could say! I remember hearing my mom say that she just wanted to be comfortable when she dresses, and I never thought that I could ever give up a cute pair of shoes, or a cute top, or whatever….in order to be comfortable! I always go for cuteness over comfort. But I can feel that shifting a bit! THIS dress can do both of those though. CUTE and COMFY and can look so different depending on what you wear with it. It’s from Covered Perfectly. During the summer I LOVE wearing dresses over anything else. This one was so fun to wear with my VINCE tennies and a woven JCrew belt tied around the waist. I bloused the dress to shorten it a bit, and added some fun jewelry and that’s about it. A hat would have been adorable too! But then what about wearing it in a dressier way? Easy as ever! Heels, or long cardigan over the top, a leather jacket, blazer, or  for another casual look throw on a baggy crew neck sweater! So good going in to fall with some booties! THIS is such a great dress to pack in your bag for many looks while out traveling! You will definitely get some mileage out of this dress!!!

I’ve linked for you here a similar sort of belt that would be so cute for this dress  (in two colors) and so many other things! Also, I get emails daily about what kind of hair products I use. I’ve linked them here for those that are interested. I’ve been using the paste and wax  mixed together, for a while now. They give me just the right amount of texture without feeling sticky! The spray is awesome for a lighter hold!
