Style Story Sundays- Number 28; Little Black Dress

Hiya all!
It's currently Friday night and I'm writing this instead of packing for the weekend back home in NJ/PA.  
Although technically I won't be in my home. But I guess since I'm visiting my college that makes it my home since I'll be living there for 4 years right?  Scary thought.  Anyway, I'm setting this on automated posting, so if this ends up posting on a Saturday, my apologizes.
Being in the heat means dressing like I'm wearing nothing.
That didn't come out right.
What I mean, is dressing in outfits that are light and airy and are comfortable.
There we go!
This can be easy in the day when all I have to do is through on a bikini, or shorts and a t-shirt, but at night it gets a little bit trickier.  Going out to a nice dinner and wearing light clothing can be a challenge.
That's why I love love love this jersey dress because a) it looks fancy {and it's not} and b) it looks expensive {and it's not.  well, not really.}.  

Here's what I wore

Dress:  Splendid {Mom's Closet}
Sweater: JCrew
Shoes: Rafe New York {on sale!}
Bag: Anthropologie {gift}
Necklace: From Greece

This is my version of a summer LBD.   It's not heavy, it stretches, is airy, is extremely comfortable, and somehow still manages to be incredibly flattering, which I don't get.  This is the miracle dress.  I swear, no matter what you eat and how big your food baby is {twins! triplets!} it still makes you look like Heidi, Giselle, Miranda, you name it.  Okay maybe not Giselle.  But is that girl even human?  Anyway, I love the colors I paired with this LBD.  The bright sweater made the dress pop, but adding the pink shoes and blue necklace made me look less like a bumble bee.  

What's your miracle outfit?  xo
