Happy hump day! Today we're talking the perfect casual LBD. Everyone needs that classic LBD in their closet, but many people only think of special occasions when it comes to pulling it out. What many don't know is that you should also have the perfect CASUAL LBD hanging in your closet for those days when you feel like you have nothing to wear, need something classic and want to look good without trying. Enter, the casual LBD. I recently snagged this up after pulling it for two of my clients while shopping. They both looked absolutely fabulous in it so I decided to give it a whirl.
I have been loving the Tildon brand at Nordstrom. It has great pieces for affordable prices and this dress is no exception at just $59. This Ruched Long Sleeved Dress comes in multiple colors and is ultra figure-flattering with ruching down the sides and what I like to call a "tulip" hemline.
I paired it with my go-to Sam Edelman riding boots and a leopard vest for a cozy touch. I love the ruching on this dress because most of us aren't really dying to draw attention to our middle area. Am I right, ladies?! It hides imperfections while also highlighting your figure.
I snagged this leopard vest on super sale at a boutique in Roswell and it's been love ever since. HERE is a similar one that I love just as much!
My rose quartz Kendra Scott Rayne has proven to be a fall staple. I threw it over this dress for a subtle pop of color that would compliment the leopard without being too loud.
A word to the wise -- if you're ordering online, choose a size up. I've got a little bit of a booty and more of an hourglass shape and I'm normally an XS-S. I had to go to a medium in this dress to avoid tight fabric around my rear.
So add a casual LBD to your wardrobe for those days you just feel "blah" or need that perfect go-to. Happy shopping!
