Versatile Little Black Dress: The Casual Edition

Happy Friday everyone!! Yesterday was Tony's actual birthday. Every year since we have been together we go with his brother/business partner, his family and a few of our managers who are like family to Maria's, an Italian restaurant that is open on the LA Fairplex grounds during the fair. It is a nice little break for us to regroup as a family during this busy month and celebrate my sweet husband. Also, I always throw him a little shindig of my own, after the fair has closed for the night, in our house trailer that we live in while we are on the road. I try to make it as special as possible, complete with balloons, cake, Cava and presents. Tony is over-the-top busy during our work season which makes it difficult to celebrate his birthday to the extent I would like, but we definitely make the most of it!

Ask anyone that knows me... I do not typically wear dresses that are form fitting from top to bottom. The other day I was shopping and for some reason this dress caught my eye. When I tried it on I could not believe how flattering it was. The combination of the light knit material and not having much spandex in it really hides any areas that you may be concerned with. It is definitely one of my new favorite staples and the best part... You can completely dress it up or down. I plan on doing another post sometime next week with it dressed up for the perfect date night look. Stay tuned for that. The chambray shirt I have around my waist here is great to throw on over it if you get chilly, just roll the sleeves a few times to make it sassy. It can also easily be swapped for a casual plaid button-up. 

Do you have a new favorite versatile staple in your closet?
