I adore black! I love basics because I feel like it’s not money wasted, but wisely invested! I also love a blank canvas. So any time I can add a few accessories to a white tee, grey tee, or a black dress, I’m a happy camper. Investing in basics is the first thing I suggest when someone asks for advice on expanding their wardrobe. Make sure you have the basics, then you can add more unique and trendy pieces from there. Good denim, short sleeve tees (white, black, navy or grey…or all of the above!), a black dress, denim shorts, and a sturdy jacket (like the one I wore here) is a great place to start. From there, you can start adding more of your personality. Love red? Get some red sandals to pair with any of the basics I just listed! Find a bag that you love and think of creative ways to wear it. How many different outfits can you create with the same items?! This is what is fun to me! I love thinking about style this way, because it’s intentional but also fun. It keeps you from spending an enormous amount of money on clothes that you may quickly outgrow due to changing tastes. There’s no need to be loose with your clothing shopping.

This adorable black ruffle dress from StyleWe is what I consider to be fun basic. The ruffles add the perfect amount of pizzazz but it’s still a perfect backdrop for fun accessories! These blue shoes have surprisingly become a staple for my wardrobe. They started out as my wedding shoes (my ‘something blue!’), but now I find myself reaching for them more than I used. I decided I paid for them, they’re cute, and I better get my money’s worth from them! The silhouette is classic, so I think that’s what makes them so versatile. But you could easily add any other heel to this outfit. I love that about black! Red heels would pair really well with this, too. Maybe add a cute woven straw handbag with them for a cute Latino feel?! Oh and don’t forget the tassel earrings!

I paired some of my favorite gorjana earrings and necklace with this outfit, because I love how gold pops when it’s layered over black. These earrings are so sleek but they definitely don’t fade into the background or let this fan necklace overshadow them. My clutch (that everyone loves!) is actually from a local boutique, so I searched for similar ones for you guys and linked them above. They aren’t exact, but they’re beautiful and I will definitely keep an eye out for any that look like this one! I have a feeling blush isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, so it’s worth getting a few things in this shade if you’re a fan!

Back to this dress. It’s adorable, cute and sexy, all at the same time! And it’s affordable. Just under $70 at StyleWe! As far as sizing goes, I went with a size 6/M and it fits well, although I have broad shoulders, so I would probably go with an 8/L for a better fit. I know sizing can be tricky but I always bring out the tape measure and if in doubt, I order up, because I prefer an oversized fit in most of my clothes (clearly I didn’t do that here, and hopefully you can learn from my mistake!).

I’m so ready for date night, now! And ironically, we actually have one tonight! ha That hardly ever happens, so I’m soaking it all in. I did my nails, my toenails, and I’m about to do my hair and makeup (because we mamas know it takes ALL day to get ready with little ones!).

A big thank you to StyleWe for the dress! I had so much fun styling it. Stay tuned for the next piece from StyleWe! It’s so cute & summery. You’ll definitely want to grab it for yourself. Think Fourth of July, {upscale} picnics, and basically any time you wear your white denim! Until then, go shop my summer wishlist for some other fun pieces! I just updated it today and there is some GOOD stuff there, you guys!
