Casual LBD

We may have just gotten back from Florida, but I’ve got a couple things to show you before I go straight to the vacay pics! And honestly, not even too many photos from the vacation! You know when it’s all just a whirlwind…like a literal whirlwind. It was SO windy there. It never died down. I think I touched the sand three times, and not more than five minutes either of those times. Kind of a bummer, but we got some good family time in with Kevin’s family. It was really refreshing. And now I want to move again! I want palm trees in my peripheral every day!

But until that day, our little town and palmetto trees will have to do!

I think my favorite thing lately has been to layer dresses. Something unassuming, but looks like it’s meant to be. I love a nice LBD. You’ve seen several on my blog. This one from Ingrid & Isabel is a little on the dressier side, but it doesn’t mean that you can’t make it work for a more casual occasion.

It’s a fun hi-lo dress that has a couple ways to be worn just by itself, but I paired one of my long time favorite chambray button downs with it to make it a little more casual for the daytime. I wanted to make it more of a burger and beer type of dress rather than a wine and cheese dress, if you know what I mean!

But, if you had something a little fancier to go to at night, you can always take the chambray layer off, and you’re instantly dressed up. You could even throw on a little floral or striped button down over your favorite LBD for a fun look.

But as soon as you take off the button up, it transforms it into that more dressed up look you need for the office or a night out!
