Dress - ℅ WearAll / Heels (similar) - ShoeMint / Necklace (similar) - JCrew Factory / Bracelet (similar) - Loft / Bag - Darby Smart (I made it!) 

How many little black dresses do you own? Until recently, I had none! Well, that isn't really true, there is one in my closet, but it no longer fits and has a huge peplum (are peplums totally out?) so I feel like it doesn't really count.  I was super excited to get this number, not just to fill the hole in my wardrobe, but also because of the cute (and flattering!) bow detail on the front. The high neckline and bow feel classy, while the length and tight cut are more on the fun side, making it the perfect balance for a lot of events. Date nights and nights out, watch out, cause I'm ready for you! (*edit* I just looked through my closet. I have three LBD's. And a little black romper. This whole post is apparently a lie. Also, I should probably clean my closet)

Oh, and in case you're wondering, yes, it's a little warmer in Chicago today, but I took these pictures over the weekend when it was about 24 degrees! I got some MAJOR side eye from some of my neighbors running around in a little dress and sandals ;) Don't worry though, I was only outside for a couple of minutes. When it's really cold out, blog pictures are more of a run out, snap a pic, and run back inside situation. As Jeff pointed out, I do really weird things for my little corner of the internet ;)
