A LBD perfect for brunch, lunch or coffee; OOTD

I can’t remember the last time I bought a little black dress (LBD). I have a ton of black dresses, but none that quite works for every day wear. In the past I have shown off a LBD with pumps for work, and even a black maxi for summer. But I have never really owned a little black dress for all of the beautiful summer and spring days.

This LBD is perfect for the warmer months as it is made of linen, is sleeveless (and thankfully not strapless) but is also not a maxi dress which can trap the summer heat between your legs (ick). I wore this dress from the office to a catch up session with one of my favorite blogger ladies. Maybe it is just the time we are at in our life, but we came across the conclusion that we feel like we are at a crossroad. At least this dress can take me down any path with its versatility.

You won’t catch me in black often because I feel like it plays too much into the stereotype that fat, curvy, and plus size women need to hide their “flaws” and camouflage their trouble spots with dark colored clothing. I’m much more of a fan fit over color. This little summer black dress has belt option to tie at the waist to help accentuate your curves. The biggest thing about it is the linen wrinkles so easily!

        1. You may be able to get it online! I got it in a large because they were out of XL but i feel like old navy clothes can run on the larger side. The fit is great though!

  1. Online was out of it completely, but I tried another Old Navy maybe 10 mi from where my local store was AND score…bought a large as well! I was drowning in the XL. Thanks so much, I think I’m going to love this LBD!

  2. Do you experience chub rub between your legs? I do thats why i hardly wear dresses especially if i know im gonna be spending a lot of time walking around. I tried rubbing deodorant but it wears off kinda quickly and just minimizes the chafing but i still get it. Any tips or tricks?

    1. Yes I do! In fact i hate the warmer months just because of it. It really sucks because all you want to do is wear cute shorts, dresses and skirts but it’s like you have to mentally and physically prepare for the repercussions of it and think “how long and how active am i going to be outside today?” I have a few blog posts on different techniques I have tried. The most effective one for me, and the one I use when i go to disneyland is using GEL deodorant and letting it dry completely before even attempting to walk.

      Here are links to the different methods I have used:
