The Only LBD You Will Need for Summer

I’ll be honest with you guys right now – my original plan for this post was to tell you that this is the only LBD you’ll need for the summer.  However, upon beginning my writing and editing process, I came to discover that this dress is now only available in white, making my initial post topic completely irrelevant.  That being said, I still believe that you should get your hands on this dress, no matter what color you choose.  After wearing it for the afternoon, I was incredibly impressed with how classy I felt and how comfortable the dress itself was on my body.  Also, considering the fact that its retailer is Nordstrom, it’s quite likely to be restocked in black – so keep an eye out.

Now that I’ve informed you of this mild tragedy (😂) let’s get on to why you still need to own a LBD for the summer.  While summer may be “wrapping up,” let’s face it: the heat won’t end for another month to two, so you still need mini dresses and items without sleeves.  LBDs come in all shapes and sizes, but during the summer months, it’s important to consider the high temperatures, as well occasions you may be dressing up for.  If you really think about it, there are very few places or events you cannot wear a LBD for, so it’s important to have a variation of styles in your wardrobe.  My preference is a dress that’s not quite mini but also not quite midi length – somewhere right in between.  I also love when there’s a higher neckline and there are no sleeves for me to fuss with.

The number one thing I look for in a LBD is unique and defining details.  What drew my eye to the dress I’m wearing is the textured bodice and sheer, ruffled neckline.  I love the fact that these specific details draw attention up to my face!  My recommendation to you is to look for pieces that highlight your favorite features and accentuate the best parts of your body.  You’ll feel cute and confident, and you’re a shoo-in for compliments!

A LBD is a piece that no girl can live without.  Whether it’s long, short, or anything in between, it is the absolute perfect dress no matter the situation.  So even though black may be looked at as something to wear only in the fall and winter, I promise you’ll feel beautiful and badass wearing it throughout the summer as well – and you’ll always look put together!  If you’re like me and love a LBD, let me know your favorite places to purchase them – because while I may not need any more, I say there’s no such thing as too many LBDs!

    Ohh myyy Stephanie you look amazing in this dress! We all need a LBD which reminds me – my mom use to always tell me to keep a LWD and killer pumps in my truck for any last minute emergency 😉
    Oh and those mules are super fun! I just love how you styled this adorable LBD.
