THAT OTHER “LBD”

little blue dress

3.1 PHILLIP LIM Crepe Dress // COLLETTE BY COLLETTE DINIGAN Embroidered Dress // J.CREW Ikat Dress

While I love a little black dress (this one, especially) as much as any girl, today I’m talking about that other LBD: the little blue dress. I’ve found that my black dresses get worn less this time of year and that I much prefer something lighter and brighter. In other words: the little blue dress is just as essential as the little white dress during the summer. Maybe it has something to do with it reminding me of the ocean or a pool, but there’s just something so fresh and summer-y about a little blue dress. (Speaking of ocean, how perfect would this one be at the beach?)  Whether it’s a simple shift, a cocktail dress (on sale and so cute!), or something super easy and breezy, it’s a warm-weather classic that I never grow tired of.
