The weekend is coming up!! I love Thursday as it means it is almost Friday and that means it is the weekend. The weekends around here are pretty great. We usually have something to do with the young ones (basketball is the current event) and then try to fit in something fun and adult like. Usually drinking is involved and I love a good drink.
So, if I am going out, what the deuce do I wear? I have 1 dress that I am going to show 3 different ways so if you are going for nice, fancy, or casual, you have an option.
First up is the, ” I want to look nice, but not dressy,” option. Another great name for this is the, “Look! I showered!”
This dress is really what’s up. It’s winter, so it’s a knit dress. Knit, meaning “will stretch.” It’s long sleeved, mid length, and black so it is a great neutral color. Because it is also body-con, I choose to throw some SPANX underneath, but do you. If you hate shape wear, rock out without it. I paired it with a brown leather bomber jacket for shape and warmth and the flat booties because I knew I was going to be walking around.
I get rocks in my shoes all the time because I shuffle my feet when I walk. David was kind enough to snap a picture while I removed the offending rock. But it’s great because check out that ass! I’m pretty happy about that.
Now, if you are going out, take the same body-con, black dress and change up those accessories. Add a statement necklace that will pop against the black, put on some heels, and go with a fancier jacket. Longer lengths with the outerwear are a nice compliment to the silhouette of the dress.
For nicer occasions, my go to purse is almost always a clutch. I snagged this Kate Spade one off Ebay when I couldn’t find it on the site anymore.
Finally, sometimes high-tops are the answer. And a waist purse (fanny pack!) when you want to go hands free.
I LOVE this waist bag. I mean, you can’t fit a ton in it, but the important stuff gets in there ie: phone, credit card, key, lippy. And the shoes! I mean, what don’t they go with??
How do you style the black dress in your closet? Let me know! XO, J
