Black Tank Dress + 8 Classic Pendant Necklaces

So excited to share this outfit post because…well…aside from the fact that I never wear dresses… I found one dress from the Nordstroms website that I am obsessed with. It’s one item I have had my eye for a while now and I finally decided to take the plunge! I saw a girl on Pinterest wearing the exact same dress, with similar accessories and I was totally inspired to recreate this look. Love how this outfit turned out with all the mix of different neutrals. Since I bought this dress online I was real worried about the fit. I’m always real hesitant when it comes to buying clothing online, especially when it comes to dresses. Right when I put this on, it felt like it had been tailored for my body. It’s very figure flattering but sill simple enough to dress it up or down. You could easily layer this in the winter time like I did or just add some fun heels for a night out. Definitely a new staple piece in my wardrobe.

Shop the Look:

Dress: Nordstroms (exact) —- comes in 7 colors

Cardigan: Target (similar) (another option)

Boots: Target (similar)(lighter option) (splurge option)

Necklace: Stella & Dot (exact)—comes in silver & rose gold

To give you a better idea how this dress fits I am 5’3 & 1/2 ( and yes the half inch counts) and I’m curvy.So in most stores I typically wear a size 8. I am wearing a size medium in this dress and it fits perfectly. It’s tight enough in all the right places and the material is thick enough so it’s doesn’t look see through at all.

To add to this look I added my favorite pendant necklace from Stella & Dot. It’s one of those classic pieces that goes with just about everything. Below I added a few similar long pendant necklaces equally as chic that range in price from $12 to $120.

I used a lot of basics to keep these outfits simple but still interchangeable with a few pops of color. Because of the crazy weather we are having with the cold, wind and crazy humidity I had to do mirror outfit selfies for this one.

In addition to these looks are some fun graphic tees that are perfect for Valentines day. All the links to shop are below.

Blouse: Target (similar) (another option) (similar top)
Jeans: Target (similar pair)
Shoes: Pay less---very old (similar pair)
Clutch: Stella & Dot (same)
Necklace: Kendra Scott (exact)

Date night Outfit– Black skinny’s with a simple black top paired with a pop of red for the shoe. If you can’t tell from all these looks I love wearing black, so this head to toe black look might just be my favorite.

To Amp up the Look: For this crazy weather another option to make this outfit a little warmer would be to add a fur vest.— I don’t have one at the moment, but it’s defiantly on my wish list.

Comfy Low Key Outfit– This is defiantly my speed right here. I am all about keeping it comfy. Easy stretchy jeans with a long knit cardigan with flat boots. Obsessed with this tank top because it’s not clingy at all, so it is very flattering and easy to layer.

I always love celebrating Valentines day because it was the day my husband proposed 6 years ago, so it’s always a very sentimental day for the both of us. Let me know which look was your favorite and how your celebrating V day this year. ๐Ÿ™‚

Outfit: Navy, Gray & Black

It’s finally December and it’s still warm outside, well cool in the mornings and warm in the afternoons. So I wanted to put together a kind of transitional outfit for this crazy weather we are having. To transition this look to the afternoon, just switch the boots for some comfy flats and lose the vest. This is one my favorite outfit combinations for fall, a long vest over a top with leggings and boots. I’m going to be honest the top is not as long as I would like, but I loved the color combination of the navy plaid with the gray vest. Like most of my looks this one is very simple, easy, and a perfect casual fall outfit. ๐Ÿ™‚

So any added gifts that day will be icing on the cake.

I included my favorites from makeup, perfume, and an engravable charm that I bought for both my mother and mother in-law. I’m also very partial to the James Avery initial ring because I have it with my daughter’s initial “M” and I wear it everyday. ๐Ÿ™‚

Check out similar items below to recreate this look. Hope your having a fantastic week so far! Thanks for stopping by!!

Outfit: Date Night

Nothing like a fun date night with the hubby to break in a new pair of heels. I’m a little obsessed with these!! I bought them on sale at a local boutique and now I want them in every color. Here is a link to the exact pair. They come in seven different shades (mine are in the shade “dark camel”). These heels are definitely far from my everyday flats and sneakers. When your day consists of chasing after a two year old, flats are your friend.
This top that I wore is from TJ Maxx and I bought months ago, but here is a link to a very similar version that I found from Zappos. My jeans are “my go to jeans” from Target that I got months back but here is a similar pair in a lighter wash. I wore this look with my favorite Stella & Dot pieces, the Arc necklace and the Renegade bracelet. I wear these two pieces almost everyday. They match just about everything. I also added my Kate Spade bracelet (here is a similar version) that I got for Christmas a couple years back. ๐Ÿ™‚
Thanks for stopping by!
