Little Black Dress

macysblack4web
A look you can really never go wrong with is a great little black dress- it’s always an easy go to and black will be chic eternally (yes, even in the summer). Whoever says “black is too hot in the summer” just isn’t wearing the right fabric. This type of style (the dress I picked up from MADE x Macy’s collaboration) is perfect for warmer days because it’s lightweight, movable and loose. Great for pretty much any summer occassion; A party, a meeting, over your bathing suit, or out to dinner.
You can style a loose LBD so many different ways depending on where you are going, so I wanted to share with you how I put my own spin on it for a day out around Los Angeles, running to meetings and then to dinner.
First I added a belt and tied it in a knot around my waist. I love this look on a dress because it’s easy, stylish and effortless. Then I added a splash of color (but not much) with some good accessories- statement espadrilles (the perfect summer shoe), a big tote, white hat and sunnies.
Happy Friday everyone!!

    You’re so right, it’s all about the fabric and what you pair it with!! The nude colours and the espadrilles give it a twist and make it very summery!! Gorgeous, gorgeous look!!

    Dear Shea
    First of all, I want to tell you that your blog looks amazing this way! So clean, fresh and e-magazine like!
    The reason why I write you is to tell you that I like your work so much, because you inspire me with your positive attitude and your lifestyle. Moreover, from what I have read about you, I know that you have come a long way to be where you are now, and that’s exactly what makes you so original. And, because of that, I am sure that we haven’t seen nothing yet! Also, another thing that I like so much about you, is that you are not one more grumpy, snob fashionista, who lives in a different world from ours, but from what I can tell (because I don’t know you) you are a beautiful person inside and out! Keep up the wonderful work. And don’t forget that your readers like you just the way you are: honest, sweet and happy!
    Kisses from Greece! xx

  29. Love the way you dressed up this LBD. How could anyone go wrong with some Valentino??
