Little Black Crochet Dress

It’s a pretty well-known fact that I live in dresses throughout the summer – whether they are short or maxi length, I love the fact that I can throw on a dress and a few accessories in the morning and be finished with getting dressed. However, one style and color of dress that was lacking in my closet with a simple, comfortable black dress.

We all love and swear by the little black dress for dressier occasions, so I was determined to find a summer-friendly version. This one immediately caught my eye during a recent shopping trip with it’s crochet detail and the fact that I easily can change up shoes and accessories to take it from day to night.

dress: SONOMA life & style (exact) | sandals: Steve Madden, TJMaxx (similar) | earrings: Target (similar) | sunnies: Apt. 9 (similar) | beachy waves hair tutorial

Shop the look:

!function(doc,s,id){ var e, p; if(!doc.getElementById(id)) { e     = doc.createElement(s);  = id; p = ‘//’; var cb = new Date().getTime(); p += ‘?cb=’ + cb; e.src = p; doc.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.ss_shopsense === ‘object’){ if(doc.readyState === ‘complete’){ window.ss_shopsense.init(); } } }(document, ‘script’, ‘shopsensewidget-script’);

  • Thanks, girl!

  • Thank you! That's why I liked it, too. 🙂

  • Thanks, friend!

  • You're so sweet, thank you! I rarely do anything with pins in my hair because it took me about 40 tries to get it to stay like that. 🙂

  • Thanks, girl! Glad I'm not the only one who thinks that way. 🙂

  • Thanks, girl! And, Old Navy for the win – they've been killing it lately.

  • Thanks, mom!

  • Thank you! They were totally a last-minute impulse buy at Target – that place always seems to do that to me. 🙂

  • Awe, thanks girlfriend! I'm so mad that I couldn't find a link to the earrings online because they are so pretty in person.

  • Thank you so much!

  • Thank you! I guess I need to attempt pinning my hair more often. 🙂 Yes, dresses are such a saving grace in the summer. It's just so much easier to get dressed!
