The Little Black Dress for The Summer

I'm baaccckkk! I left for Italy on June 5th and since being back I've somehow not been able to get back into the swing of things. It's true what they say... "It's harder to come home than to go away."

Now that I'm back, I will be sharing more details from my Italy trip soon, but in the mean time, I wanted to share more about my take on the classic little black dress and how it's really my go to this summer.

If you should know anything about me it's that 9.9 times out of 10 I will be dressed in black. It's always been my go-to and I've been in the habit of it for so long now. Sometimes I feel really out of place or strange when I have colour on. Funny enough when I was Italy with my family this question came up a lot. "Why are you always in black?" I would have to explain that mainly my closet is made up of black clothing!

The little black dress or LBD as some call it is a staple that every woman needs in her closet. It's perfect for dressing up or down. I've paired it here with my silver metal sandals. I scooped these up from Zuiki in Venice, Italy in every colour and have been obsessed with them ever since.

My tassel bag from Victoria Secret is a fun addition to adding to the casual look and never underestimate the power of sunglasses! They can really help to make a bold look.

I know it sounds odd to be talking about a little black dress as my go to outfit in the summer especially with this gorgeous Vancouver weather, but when you find that perfect dress like this one from Winners it's impossible to just wear it once. The cut out in the back of this dress speaks for itself and adds an edginess to the look that I really like. The scallop hem at the bottom of the dress is fun and playful really make this little black dress dynamic. Now you can see why this really is my favourite piece in my closet!

For those chilly nights at any of the cities beaches, you can pair your little black dress with a fun floral duster like I have here. It will be sure to help with that midnight summer breeze by the ocean while also adding another fun layer to your little black dress.

What are some of your favourite summer pieces right now? I want to know your go-to's and let me know your suggestions on dressing up or down your favourite little black dress in the comments section below!
