Despite spending most of the days in an air-conditioned office, I still tend to look for pieces that can easily transition from work to evening or weekend. This dress has been my ultimate go-to over the last few months for a myriad of reasons–the first of which: it’s wrinkle-free.

When it comes to house chores, ironing is the task that neither Arnie, my husband, or I prioritize at the top. Granted, we probably look like wrinkled messes because of it, but that’s why–when it comes to my work wardrobe–I favor iron-free fabrics like polyester and the crepe fabric of this versatile LBD.

Ways to Wear It

  • Summer Night Out – today’s post, in a pair of chic, square sunglasses and caged heel sandals, is the perfect look for a summer date night.
  • Low-Key Fall Evening – And, being that black is a seasonless color, I’ll be able to wear it well into fall by adding knee-high boots and a long cardigan.
  • Work-Friendly Attire – I wear this LBD practically once a week to work by pairing it with nude pumps and a long blazer or cardigan. The longer hem length makes it office appropriate, though I do wear a bralette or tank underneath. Since it doesn’t come in petite-sizing, the neckline is a bit deep for work, so I prefer the extra coverage.

When it comes to building a timeless wardrobe, items like this LBD are the perfect additions. The minimal details and simple silhouette check the two most important boxes for versatility. This is a piece that you’ll get endless wears, paying for itself time and time again.

    • It’s such a good one! I have worn it countless times—especially great for concealing a baby bump! :)

  • Exactly one week ago, @attybernard and I went on our last coffee date before spending the rest of the day cooking and cleaning in preparation for our little girl. Something about that day just made us feel like she wasn’t going to be long. The very next day she joined our world, and these have been the best 6 days of my entire life. 💕 #newmom #newparents #newbornbaby #pittsburghphotographer #thehappynow #thatauthenticfeeling #seekthesimplicity #abmhappylife #theeverydayproject #verilymoment #darlingmovement #littlestoriesofmylife #momentslikethese
  • Settling into our family of three, and this guy is the best teammate a girl could ask for. I never knew I could feel so much love—I could burst. #newparents  #thehappynow #livebeautifully #postitfortheaesthetic #inspiremyinstagram #chooselovely #thatauthenticfeeling #seekthesimplicity #abmhappylife #theeverydayproject #verilymoment #darlingmovement #feelfreefeed #littlestoriesofmylife #momentslikethese #postitfortheaesthetic
  • This girl entered our worlds yesterday afternoon—exactly two weeks ahead of schedule and right at the end of the Pats game—just letting mommy and daddy know who’s gonna be in charge of the schedule from now on. #newbabygirl
  • I hear we have some snow coming Pittsburgh, friends! 💕 Am I the only weirdo who is actually excited about this? You can find me in all the cozy sweaters and blankets, snuggled up on the couch. 😍 #theblogsocieties #shopstylecollective #wkloveyourcloset #pittsburghblogger #discoverunder5k #discoverunder10k #pghfashion #pghblogger #stylebloggers
  • I finally got a vanity at age 31. I never knew what I was missing! ☺️ #husbandwin #ikeahack #affordabledecor
  • Hard to believe how soon our little one will be joining us. Feeling all sorts of emotions, but mostly ready to meet her. I’m curious—any other moms to be out there? If so, when are you due? And those of you who are already moms, what words of wisdom would you share with those of us about to become mamas, too? #theblogsocieties #shopstylecollective #wkloveyourcloset #pittsburghblogger #discoverunder5k #discoverunder10k #pghfashion #pghblogger #stylebloggers #37weeks 📷: @julieanne514
