Flirty & Feminine: Black Ruffled Dress

Hello lovelies!

I hope everyone has been having a great week! The rain has been falling steadily here, but today started with a glimmer of sunshine through my window and it is amazing how much my mood has improved. As I recall sunnier days, I am taken back to this photo shoot from Rosemary Beach…..I am always looking for a fun flirty dress, and when I came across this one it was instant love! The black background with the cream embroidery is the perfect balance of delicate and flirty, and the ruffles across the bodice complement the fun, flirty feel. The dress also comes in a mint green which is gorgeous!

Given all of the embroidery and ruffles on this dress (which deserve to be the center of attention), I added no accessories other than my usual daily jewelry, black block heels (totally on trend) and a black-detailed straw bag. As you know, I love an item of clothing that can do double duty – I have also styled this dress as a fun top, adding a long black skirt and a wide black belt on bottom – no one was the wiser! The dress became two separate pieces of clothing, which makes it a great option for vacation packing….

I have also styled with dress with black ballet flats and a chic black cross-body bag for easy day-to-day errands after school drop-off.

I hope that gives you some good ideas for multiple stylings for the dress!
