Happy Wednesday Friends! Summer is in full swing here and has me rocking breezy dresses, bold lips + basket bags! I don’t know about you but I am so ready for BBQs, long warm nights, the smell of fresh cut grass + lots of fresh, gorgeous blooms! If you follow me on instagram you’ve probably seen my repeated purchases of peonies which were in my wedding bouquet + are probably my favorite flower of all time! They are only in season for such a short (albeit sweet) while so I am trying to stock up + soak in each week while they are so fresh + lush.

The LBD I am wearing was a bit of an impulse purchase which is so unlike me usually. I like to review + compare all options out there before I commit to a buy especially if it’s a black piece since they are so timeless. However, I had stopped in to Anthroplogie a few months back to escape the rain with my little baby shopping-partner-in-crime + fell in love with the easy swingy + slinky material of this dress. I could already see all the different ways this one could be dressed up or down + I was so right. I’ve worn it to work meetings, out for date night with some heels + a beaded clutch + now dressed down with a pair of converse (a must for every mama), a fun wood beaded statement necklace + a bold red lip. I have to say, this look may be my favorite one of it yet! Plus, it’s currently on sale – win!

I love the ability of mixing comfy + glam pieces together to make an outfit feel understated but put together. Most pieces in my closet are pretty versatile for just this reason, but if I am ever in doubt I know I can pair any casual mom look with a bold red lip + a fun necklace (unfortunately I don’t have a link to mine as I bought it at the Chlesea Market in NYC from a local artist) and instantly elevate the look. Shop the look below.
