Every so often, I stumble on the perfect dress. A dress that fits all the major criteria…universally-flattering, suitable for all types of occasions, easy-to-wear, and oh yes, affordable!! This is not a drill, friends…you’re going to want this dress! Perhaps in more than one color (in comes in 7!)!! Did I mention it’s under $50?!
It may be simple in design, but thanks to the slip-on classic silhouette, you’ll feel instantly ‘dressed,’ and the crepe shift easily transitions between casual and dressy. The modest hemline makes it perfect for work and church, but the split-neck gives it enough sass to move into party and nighttime mode. For today’s post, I’m sharing this Goldilocks of LBDs for Work to Weekend.
By adding a classic pump (these are my favorites…completely comfortable and not too tall!) and handbag, this modest dress is ready for the office. Jazz it up with some fun statement jewels for extra punch. When the temps cool off, I’ll add a long cardigan like this one, or even a military jacket.
Fit Tip: The dress is true to size, I’m wearing an XS.
Speaking of jewels, my friends at Ben Bridge Jeweler invited me to try out a few pieces, and I was instantly smitten with this heart rate necklace. I don’t think I’ve taken it off since I received it! Mr. SP and I celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary next year, and he’s insistent I either add a band to my wedding set, or get an eternity ring for my other hand. Ben Bridge Jeweler has a ton of stunning options, and I love that they follow the strictest ethical and quality standards, so we’ve been looking there. Do you have any thoughts on anniversary pieces?
I swapped the pumps for peep-toe booties, and traded the pink tote for a fierce leopard clutch…and just like that, I’m ready for a fun night out!
Lipstick is one of my favorite accessories, and this bold pink (color: Punch) really jazzed-up the outfit. I’m obsessed with this new formula…it goes on like a creamy balm, but wears all-day like a stain. I’m working on a beauty post for later this month, and you can guarantee this lipstick and this mind-blowing mascara will be included!
I’ve already ordered this dress in both navy and maroon…I hope it arrives in time for a bridal shower I’m attending this weekend! And as for undergarments, my favorite undies are seamless with this dress, as is my go-to bra.
