The Perfect Little Black Dress

A little black dress is perfect for so many occasions. Whether it be girl’s night, date night, or dressed up for work, it is one of the most versatile pieces that you can own. It took me forever to find one that I loved,Β so it’s only fitting that I share all the details with you! I had so much fun putting this look together & hope that you love it! Be sure to follow me on Instagram to get a sneak peek of my looks before I post them on my blog!

Nine times out of ten I prefer to go to Nordstrom Rack, just because the prices are usually way better. But I decided to switch things up and give Nordstrom a go. I immediately loved this black dress! I thought $38 was a great price for a piece that is so versatile. What mostly stood out to me was the cutout detailing on the front & back! It fit true to size andΒ thought it didn’t cling to me which I love! They have so many colors and a striped version too!

I’ve literally had my jean jacket for years & it’s still going strong! I’ve worn these chunky heels time and time again and I will never get tired of wearing them. They are by far one of my favorite Target finds.

The top knot has been my favorite way to wear my hair this summer! Basically, if I’m not at the office, you’ll find me wearing a topknot. My tools to create this look are dry shampoo (LOTS of it!), clear elastics, hairspray, and a teasing comb. Practice makes perfect, and the more you wear it, the better it’ll look!

What’s your favorite piece for summer?!

Love Always,

Ashley J.

    I love Nordstrom Rack too, but I tend to get in a little trouble when I’m in there haha I love this dress and the cut outs make it really unique. It’s a modern take on the classic little black dress!

    I love it all! I got my jean jacket at Gap seriously 10 years ago I think?! And I love it more now than I did then! πŸ™‚ And you always totally rock the top knot…. love it!

      Old jean jackets are seriously the best! It’s almost like the longer you have them, the better they look πŸ™‚ and thank you so much!!
