What I’m Wearing: Aztec Print Jumpsuit

  
Hey y’all! Today I’m talking about this cute Aztec print jumpsuit that I picked up earlier this year at–you guessed it–Forever 21! This jumpsuit has spaghetti straps, a slightly defined waist, and a v-cut back. The best part about this jumpsuit is that it was $24.90! It’s perfect for a nice day out whether you’re just going to brunch, heading to work, or exploring your city. It’s pretty light weight, so it could withstand a hot and muggy day; and it’s flowy, so no static cling buzzkill feelings to worry about.

Since it has spaghetti straps, I wore a bandeau bra underneath and since I wore it to work I paired it with a light cardigan from the Loft. I wore my same Juicy Couture lariat and studs, along with my Alex&Ani bangles and my Pandora bangle. Want to close out your summer in a similar outfit? Check out these picks (all on SALE) from Charlotte Russe!

The Little Black Dress

  
Hey y’all! Today we’re talking the ‘Little Black Dress!’ The little black dress aka the LBD has become a staple in women’s wardrobe since Coco Chanel published the image of a simple black dress and a string of pearls in an issue of Vogue in 1926. It’s now known as the uniform for social occasions. A night out on the town: night clubs, restaurants, concerts, parties: we wear black. The cut and style of the LBD has evolved over the years as most women opt for minis, but midi length has reemerged as a popular cut for after five affairs. 

  (Shirred Jersey Midi Dress $40.80)

  (Alex and Marie A-Line Marie Fit-and-Flare dress $99)

A-line dresses are also a very flattering and versatile fit for taking a LBD from work to after five. Since most women opt to wearing black when hitting the town many retailers have a LBD section dedicated to providing selections for nearly every event imaginable. So getting an idea of what to wear on a special occasion isn’t the difficult part–it’s narrowing down the selection!

If you’re planning a night out and need some help narrowing down your selection, here are a few picks from Lulu’s for inspiration 🙂

 (Va Va Voom Black Backless Midi Dress $46)
  (Clean Cut-out Black Two-Piece Dress $35)
  (Don’t Tell ‘Em Black Bodycon Midi Dress $54)
  (Hey There Gorgeous Black Strapless Lace Dress $48)
Also, just wanted to leave y’all with this fun little article about Coco Chanel and the LBD 😉
