I just wanted to stop in and share a simple outfit I wore earlier this week for dinner at one of my favorite local spots. I love the simplicity of this Little Black Dress (LBD) and the unexpected lace-up back! It could easily be styled several different ways. To keep it casual for dinner, I paired it with these adorable and oh-so comfortable leopard sandals that I just got from Kelly Fields Boutique!
I’m heading to the beach this weekend and crossing my fingers for good weather! I went to the beach last weekend with my family but it rained literally the entire time. We even got a few really bad thunder storms that shook our house pretty bad (it’s on stilts, so that’s why…but still, it was scary!) Here’s to hoping for sunny days and clear skies…. have a great weekend everyone!

  4. I love a good LBD. It's versatile and never disappoints. I love the detail on the back and the hint of color added by the necklace. Gorgeous!

  7. those shoes are so incredible! i love that they are a slight nod to birks but the straps are a little different and it has the back strap.

    wishing you a very warm and sunny weekend at the beach!
