Ah, the little black dress

And in this case, the little black shift dress. Need I say more?

We all know and love our LBDs for one major reason in particular: versatility. And we all love shift dresses for one fab-u-lous reason: wearability. Enter: the little black shift dress… anddddd those wardrobe prayers have been officially answered. 

I’m excited to partner with Nordstrom to talk summer dresses (an important and essential part of our summer arsenals, of course) and when it boiled down to scanning the dresses curated by my favorite online retailer — I couldn’t help but get down to the basics. The essential basics – a little LBD lovin‘. I chose this shift dress by Nordstrom, in particular, because of its under $100 price tag and trustworthy brand name (BB Dakota). The best part? It can be worn so many ways.  I styled today’s post a bit differently for you all to show the versatility a little black shift can offer – so let’s hop to it:

  1. Hit the town — grab the girls, we’re headed dt with our sunnies and fringe clutches for a night out.
  2. Brunch readya hat and a fun pair of sunnies are the right accessories for topping off an outfit for Saturday/Sunday brunch appeal.
  3. Business Casual — this dress is professionally chic and perfectly fit for 9-5 attire. I also love how effortlessly it can transition from professional wear to happy-hour happy wear. I styled the dress with a summer scarf and a large tote that I always drop my laptop and notebooks in when I’m on the go.

Get in on the rest of the outfit and accessory details below, and be sure to follow along on instagram as we hit the beach in St. Pete’s!

Thank you Nordstrom for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own.

    Hi, I’m visiting Austin in 2 weeks, do you think I will need a light jacket for the evenings? Any stylish suggestions?

    1. Hi Alex! I would definitely bring one light cardigan – you probably won’t need it but it never hurts to pack it 🙂 We are super casual here, so lots of flats and maybe a pair of wedges! Bring your chills tees, throw-on dresses, and tanks too! ENJOY! xoxo J
