{Fashion} Little Black Dress

 
 
 

Dress: Anthropologie
Boots: Dillards
Headband: White House Black Market
Bracelet: Velina Bracelets...I won this beautiful bracelet from a giveaway done by Velina on Anna's blog {In Honor of Design}. I just adore it!! Mine is called Aria.


Did you ever play dress up when you were little? I sure did. I'd change my clothes 4 times a day, putting on the necessary outfit for each activity {ie. playing outside, playing teacher, artist, baking...} My favorite, though, was to go in to mom's closet while she was at work and try on her pretty dresses and high heel shoes. To this day, I just love getting dressed up. There's something about it that makes me feel like a child at heart, but also a grown up...all at the same time. I've been on the hunt for a new "LBD" for while. When I spotted this one, I knew I had found it. It's classic and flirty with the touch of ruffles and small opening in the back. Here's to hoping it will never go out of style! Because I plan on wearing it to all important events and future dates. Okay, I'll probably need to switch it up every now and then :)


I'm linking up with Anna of In Honor of Design for her True Beauty series!

PS. Welcome to my sponsor Nicole from Running in Heels!
Nicole is a beautiful girl- inside and out- who write about fitness, love, life, and of course shoes :) Nicole inspires me to exercise and to love the Lord more fully! She's also doing something super neat and raising money for a little girl who was abandoned at birth by running for the I WILL RUN campaign. Here's what Nicole has to say about it:
"Her story gives reason to my running. Her name is Arya, and she was abandoned by her father at a garbage dump the day she was born. Thankfully, As Our Own rescued Arya, who is now 20 years old and attending college. This spring, I have been chosen to run as part of the I WILL RUN campaign to raise funds for Arya and her college tuition. Together, we can impact her life more than we can even imagine."
