LBD for Summer

I originally set out to make this blog primarily a fashion blog and it has turned into the most fun way I could have ever imagined to document my regular old life and interests.

Today, however, I’m sharing some style with you.

This black knit high-low dress is a staple in my closet.  Not really a little black dress, but it gets the job done.  Its so easy and comfortable to throw on with a scarf, like I’m wearing here, or topped with a chambray button up shirt (un-buttoned!) and flats.

Its funny how maxi dresses can feel so light and breezy.  I’ve really had to rethink my entire wardrobe to be able to handle this 90 degree plus heat I’ll be enduring all summer long.

But anyway, I’ve dressed this up a time or two with heels and a statement necklace, but most often I wear it just like this.

These pictures were snapped when I was visiting family back in Memphis, last month.  My mom and I were headed out for a fun girl’s day of shopping, visiting friends, and having lunch al fresco.
