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.
A LBD perfect for brunch, lunch or coffee
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!
