Every girl needs a little red dress.

It’s an unwritten rule in my mind and one that I think should be etched in fashion stone. I honestly believe red is a universally flattering color no matter what your skin tone or hair color may be. Sure there are softer¬†hues of the bold color that could be used for certain ladies and a more vivid punch for others, but regardless; we all need at least one red dress. It’s likely we all have a plethora of LBDs in our closets but I bet most of us don’t have a red one. Lets change that! ūüôā Ok, no idea why I am advocating for something so basic but when I get my mind set on something I just run with it. Major nerd. Not sorry!

Off the Shoulder + Flirty length = Date Night Perfection.

Can you believe July is nearly over?! Where the heck has Summer gone?! While I’m getting a bit eager for crisper weather so I can bring out cozy knits and boyfriend jeans, I’m holding on to the hot + humid evenings as long as possible. I love being able to wear flirty frocks, off the shoulder pieces and lightweight materials. Something about minimal thought going into my outfit is always a good thing in my book. Plus Kyle always seems to compliment what I’m wearing more often when it involves short-lengths and bare shoulders. Boys! ūüėČ I first noticed this super inexpensive¬†OTS mini on the ASOS website a few months back but I was completely sold on it when #GirlBoss Ruthie Ridley¬†rocked it in a blog post¬†a while back. The dress comes in a handful of colors and I debated between the red, yellow and coral for nearly two weeks before finally pulling the trigger on the color that immediately caught my eye.¬†I couldn’t be happier with my decision! I feel like a pretty {adult-version} of a princess in this.

For a Saturday Night date night, I paired the mini with lace-up sandals, a statement pendant and one of my favorite mini bags. The look was cool and casual and did a great job of hiding my sweat. The heat index was right around 115* at 8pm so the billowy cut was perfect for creating at least a tiny breeze to help cool me off.¬†I’m super excited to wear this as a top as well and pair it with my favorite skinny jeans and wedges for a completely different look. How would YOU style this!? Always up for hearing ways to maximize the cost-per-wear on everything I buy! ūüôā
