How to Style a Casual Black Dress for the End of Summer with my Favorite Retro Sneakers!
So I realize it has been
over a week two weeks since I’ve last posted. Y’all, life has been busy. Having an almost five month old (don’t know how that happened!), working full-time, traveling to the beach (I’m not sure I can use the word vacation), and a million other things. Putting the blog on hold for a week was just the breather I needed to feel inspired again. Blogging certainly is a full-time job, and I already have one. Make that two, actually. Raising a child is a full-time job. But, I wouldn’t want to be doing anything else. Blogging makes me happy, and while I may take a break from time to time, I don’t think I’ll ever stop.
And speaking of #momlife, this casual black dress is on heavy rotation. The humidity here in NC is about 90%. AKA you’re basically swimming through the air. So lightweight and comfy is key when dressing for the day. I love this easy black dress, which also comes in a ton of other colors. It is perfect for pairing with sneakers and an easy crossbody bag for chic mom style on the go.
Also, this casual black dress is under $60, so you can probably buy a few colors. I definitely want to. I tied one of my favorite new sweaters around my waist because it is always freezing going from the outside heat to a cold building with the AC pumping. And it also hides my hips, so you know…win-win. Adding cute accessories like a bold lip and hoop earrings makes this casual black dress feel a little more special. You could also wear it with booties and a moto jacket for fall!
PS – anyone notice the spit up stain on my dress in these pictures? I told you I wear this all the time!!
