Over the weekend I shared a photo of a black swing dress on Instagram that has been on repeat lately. I packed it with me to take to North Carolina and wore it after the pool, to dinner with the family and again to do a grocery run. When we got back to Philly, we decided to host a little dinner party for our friends this past weekend who took care of Ed the cat while we were away and our neighbor who kept an eye on our house. Honestly, we were just really excited to host after not being able to have friends over for more than a year! Last minute we realized we didn’t have enough wine or beer so we walked to the store down the street to stock up. One of the great perks of living in a city! I highly suggest making sure you have a dress in your closet this summer that fits great and works for any occasion. After a year of not leaving the house for like a year, I have to admit it’s been a bit of a struggle to put an outfit together. That’s why I love a simple black swing dress because I wear it at least once a week because it’s easy to throw on and I can accessorize it to dress it up or go for a casual look.
I wore my new sandals that I just got in this week that are very quickly selling out and I can see why because they are VERY comfortable. This dress is easy to dress up (thank goodness for little black dresses!) with some jewelry. I wore my Kate Middleton inspired J Crew earrings that look good with every outfit. Linking this years version here. Last summer I purchased a few things from Uncommon James when they were having a big sale and I love this simple layering piece necklace. It’s delicate and so chic! Since it’s been so long since I got to dress up for a dinner, I stacked my J Crew bracelet and a new gold bracelet set from Target. Clutch is old from J Crew Factory and I hope they bring it back because it’s one of my favorites!
