Happy Wednesday loves! I feel like it’s been a hundred years since I’ve shared an outfit post on the blog and trust me guys when I tell you it’s not because I haven’t wanted to. Quite literally, Virginia weather hardly ever cooperates from November until March, but alas pretty weather is here and fingers crossed it’s here to stay!

I’m excited to share with you today this gorgeous black shift dress that features bright florals perfect for spring and summer! When I first picked up this dress in the store, I almost thought the flowers were butterflies, and ya’ll already know my love for those! The material is so lightweight and I love the bell sleeve detail that adds some character to a fairly simple dress shape. I paired it with some black pump stilettos and to complete the look I added in a gorgeous statement necklace from Happiness Boutique.

I’m wearing the Gala Statement Necklace in Pastel Blue, and I feel like it literally brings the entire look together. I just love the pastel colors, the girly detailing, and although it is a “statement” necklace, I feel like it is very elegant and dainty looking with all of the pretty crystals and jewels.

Also can we talk about how gorgeous the floral print on this dress is?! The bright yellow and pink florals really contrast well against the black dress and I love that it is a great multi-occasion piece! Would be fun for date night yet it is still appropriate for the office and a work event.

  6. This dress is so gorgeous! I like that the top of the dress isn’t as busy as the bottom, so it lets your statement necklace really stand out.
    I get so nervous when picking out statement necklaces, so I usually shy away from them but I think they are so gorgeous! I need to face my fear and start wearing them, haha.

    1. They really are so pretty, so I encourage you to try one out! They can literally make jeans and a t-shirt look chic too lol.

  8. I agree-Virginia weather is so crazy during the winter and early spring! I love the print on your dress, it’s so pretty!

  9. This is perfect for Spring…and it would work as a night time look too because the black adds a little elegance. So beautiful on you!

  10. I’ve never worn a shift dress, I’m afraid that it won’t look good on me, but this print is so beautiful I might have to make an exception.

    1. You should try it! I honestly think it’s one of the most universally flattering dress shapes. πŸ™‚

    1. Thank-you! I’m so glad I found them because they have so many cute pieces to add that special something to an outfit! πŸ™‚

  11. ADORABLE!!!! I wouldnt be sure that a bold dress like that needed a statement necklace but that totally works.

    1. Thank-you! I was questioning it before I put it on too, just because the print was already pretty busy, but it totally worked! Lol I guess you never know until you try!

  12. Beautiful photos girl! I love that dress and the jewelry is so pretty! I live in the South and the weather has been completely unpredictable lately.

  13. Oh my goodness pretty girl, the dress and you in it is just amazing! I hope you linked it up with our fashion weekly link up today! Just love this and the pictures are gorgeous too!

  14. So pretty! I love how the black pairs with the contrasting light, bright colors of the floral pattern!

    1. Thanks! I liked that too! Although a white dress would look pretty with the print, I think the black/bright colors contrast perfectly! πŸ™‚

  15. Cara, what a beautiful dress! Shift dresses are my favorite because they still have shape, but I can also still feel comfortable sitting down. ha!
