Hi pretty friends. Although I love wearing colors and patterns, I have a thing for a good LBD. Especially when it comes with peplum details. Like…hello pretty thing (#amiright?)
This beauty fits like a glove but is also something I could wear all day plus to an event at night. It’s very comfortable, yet it’s tailored to look professional. Basically, it’s the perfect black dress.
This number is coming to you for under $70 from Banana Republic Factory Store. I was really surprised (but then not really because I always find good things there) when I spotted this dress. It was one of those moments like I didn’t even want to try it on, I just wanted to find my size, checkout and go tell everyone about my new black dress!
So here I am, telling you about my new black dress!
I’m wearing it here with light accessories and a nude heel. Something you might not know about me is that I don’t really LOVE black shoes. I feel like they draw attention to your feet when a nude heel makes your legs look longer. But I am slowly getting over that and have actually recently purchased these black heels!
I would love to hear about your favorite black dress! Please comment below 🙂
On a side note, this week I am taking part in the Rising Tide Society’s #instatidechallenge. I’m so excited to read and learn about other amazing women who are killing it at creating community over competition. Today’s challenge is sharing something about my morning routine.
During the week I work a full time job in sales. I am up early! From the time I wake up to the time I leave for work, I feel like I do not have much free time. This always makes me think about my mom. She used to wake up so early, do her quiet time and enjoy coffee, get herself ready for work then wake us up and get us going. Now that I have a full time job (and have for the past 5 years) I always wonder how she did it all. I barely have time to make a cup of coffee ( I’m also not very good at making coffee…it doesn’t seem that hard but it is). So if you are out there and have suggestions for me on this….please let me know!
I typically do not eat breakfast until I get to work. I have just gotten in the habit of this. However, on the weekends, this girl loves brunch! In fact, breakfast food is my favorite food. Chris and I actually had brunch for dinner at our rehearsal dinner because we love it so much.
And lastly…I love listening to The Bert Show on my way to work every morning. Bert, Kristin & Brian crack me up! I love their perspective on life. They make the morning commute doable everyday and it’s truly something I look forward to.
Thank for stopping by!
