What to Wear with a Black and White Dress + Link Up

Firstly, I’d like to apologize for not being as present here on the blog for the last few weeks. As many of you know I’ve been working really hard at launching my newest business venture and it’s eating up all of my time.

If I’m going to be completely honest, I won’t be back to fully blogging until August. I will be posting once or twice a week, but I’m here! News of my latest venture will be soon coming, but in the meantime, can we talk about this dress??

Side note: This lipstick is EVERYTHING. It’s Stila’s Stay all Day Liquid Lipstick in the color Fiery. And you need it. Now. The end.

Back to the dress. When I first tried it on I was a little concerned about the length. Ever since I cut my hair, I’ve been been heavily into midi skirts and jogger pants, but I felt so sexy and young in this dress that I couldn’t pass it up. Could you?

We’re often told to stay away from stripes as they have a habit of accentuating are undesiraable physical traits, but these days, I’m all about breaking the rules. This year has been SUCH a year of discovery for me, as I finally know what it feels like to be comfortable in my own skin. So much so that I don’t question my fashion choices. I do whatever feels good in my soul.

What to Wear with a Black and White Dress

In any event, when I put this dress on I felt instantly pretty and feminine, but I knew something was missing. I have a hard time not throwing in an extra pattern or pop of color, so I added this cute pink clutch from Charming Charlie. The pink one is sold out, but PLEASE someone grab the yellow one.

Last, but not least, the shoes. Unfortunately, these are sold out as they are from last year, but you can grab these cute ones instead.

And thank you so much to those of you who continue to inspire me by hanging in there through the many changes, facelifts, and redirections of this blog. My contributors Chakayla & Elizabeth have been an amazing support to me as I transition into being a fulltime entrepreneur, so please look out for more posts from my two favorite girls!
