Hi! So I've finally broken out of my camera-shy-ness AND my sister happened to be home when I decided to just give it a shot (no pun intended!)  - so here's my first outfit post!

This is pretty representative of my personal style - I don't usually go crazy with patterns (although I do have a lime green skirt with bright purple parrots on it that I LOVE), and just like to add a couple classic accessories to complete the outfit.

I've been obsessed with backless/low back dresses lately, and finally found the perfect one! I love that it's modest in the front, has a low back, and has pockets! I absolutely love dresses with pockets.

I'd wear this on date (maybe with strappy heels instead of pumps), to the office (with some sort of blazer over it), or with a denim jacket and sandals or flats over it for a slightly more casual look. I love finding pieces to wear on several occasions!

Do you have a favorite LBD? Where's it from?

  1. You are stunning and very photogenic! You definitely need to post more outfit pics!! This dress looks fabulous on you! The back is gorgeous. I own a few LBDs but find I tend to wear them more in the winter, and usually wear brighter colours in the summer. Every time I see someone in a great LBD, it makes me want to pull mine out. They are so classic and chic!
