Black Slip Dress

Summer evenings are truly the best. You can be out later and just keep it simple. This black slip dress by none other than Free People has been a staple in my Summer attire-not sure why it hasn't made it on the blog sooner. But it's perfect for an evening out. Here's the thing. It is kinda is a nighty and I was trying to convince the boyfriend that it wasn't. It's not completely a lie because I've never worn it to bed-ever ever. Plus, when I bought it I had every intention of it being a dress to wear in public. I totally chatted about it with the sales girl. So this time around I knew I had to step it up with the way I styled it. I turned to my trusted jean jacket, leopard sandals that have been on major repeat, and panama hat. Black slip dress is a dress! 

Do you ever shop in other departments?

  23. I didn't even think that dress was a nighty until you mentioned it! I think it's all about how you actually style a piece like that. By adding the jacket, nice shoes and a hat, you completely transformed it into a totally great LBD for summer.
