Hello and happy Monday!  It’s been a while since I’ve done an outfit post, wanna know why?  It’s been freakin’ hot that’s why, but the kids have been gone with school trips, so I just decided suck it up and deal.  I’m excited to talk about the classic little black dress in today’s post.  Don’t get me wrong I love trends to death, but sometimes it feels good just to wear a classic choice.

With 6 weeks of Europe and packing to think about I’m betting that it’s going to be a bit less about trends and more about the classics anyway.  The LBD is such a perfect, versatile closet staple that I can’t have just one!  I’m always game to add to my collection and this JCrew little black dress is such an amazing choice and it’s only $42!  Bonus if you aren’t feeling the LBD it comes in hot pink too, maybe you’re feeling a LPD?

We’ve definitely had some fun date nights lately with the kids gone and this dress made for a perfect night out.  When it’s hot out it’s challenging at times to look date night ready while still keeping cool.  This dress totally fits the bill, due to the fabric and cut of the dress it’s so light weight and airy.  I added my favorite pearls for a more polished dinner time look, and you know me I love to add a pop of color whenever possible!  I do believe I snagged the last hot pink wallet on a chain so I’ve linked another that’s just as fabulous.  If you do like the exact one I have it’s currently available in pale pink and black.

Let’s not forget with some LBD’s you need a strapless bra.  This convertible strapless bra is pretty awesome.  Don’t get me wrong I honestly find all strapless bras to be evil torture devices, but this one is a lot less evil than the others, I promise!  If you aren’t near a store to try one on, definitely order multiple sizes so you can find a good fit.  Bra sizes can be all over the place sometimes!

I’ve linked more options below to suit a variety of ages, climates, and taste!  Ladies work the LBD!
