Hi friends and how are you! I am trying to write this post in between child sneezes and nose problems. Got to catch him before he wipes his nose on everything. #momproblems Such is life. Anywho and whatnot I bet you didn’t come here to the ol bloggeroo to read me talk about the plague or allergy issue running rampant in my house did you? Probably not! So let’s get down to business!
I am doing a bit of a what I wore type of thing today! This dress was one that I was drooling over from EXPRESS for a while. I got it one Christmas while up in upstate NY freezing my bum off. I got it on sale! And have loved it ever since! But, it is one of those things that I don’t wear often just like a certain jumper. Why? I think it is because the back likes to slide up a tad and you can see my bra back. But, I fixed that with a great basic Tshirt bra from VS.
I wore my strappy sandals with this dress to give it that more of a “casual vibe” But we all know with heels it would be a great alternative to a LBD.
Quite honestly just like they say that anyone should have a LBD in their closet I think that we should have a black maxi dress in our closet. Why? Well because in a pinch they are a great outfit. You can wear a denim jacket with them and look great.There is really no thinking involved with wearing a black maxi. No over thinking the outfit. Its just a dress that looks great with mostly anything. A black maxi dressed looks great and begs to have a big statement necklace worn with them!
See what I mean? The jacket just takes the dress to a different level. Even a moto jacket would be great or a white blazer.
So what do you think? Do you have any black maxi dresses? You should!
