Hi sweet friends and happy Friday! I’ve been fighting a nasty head cold all week long and am finally turning a corner, just in time for the weekend! Who gets a head/chest cold in mid-March? After not leaving the house for four straight days, we snuck out for little bit yesterday afternoon to celebrate our TEN YEAR Anniversary! I cannot believe we’ve been together for an entire decade. We’ve never broken up once, despite me packing my sh*t a few times haha. We were such babies when we started dating and it’s just crazy to look back on the last ten years and reflect on all of the life we’ve lived – some really good, and some really bad. But through it all, we’ve never given up on one another and we truly are best friends! So in true Sara and Tony form, we went out for happy hour at our favorite sushi establishment and then grabbed a big beer at the sports bar next to our house to watch some March Madness basketball! And then we were home by 7pm to give Roger his insulin haha yep, we lived it up on the big 1-0 Anni!
While I thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon outing, I did make T promise to take me on a proper date in the next week or two because I just got this little black dress and cannot wait to wear it for a date night! First of all, how fun are those pleats?!? They have so much movement and flow – creating an easy breezy vibe. Black dresses don’t normally come to mind when I think about Spring outfits, but the beautiful embroidered flowers on this dress make it a great Spring piece! You can pull from the different floral hues and pair fun shoes and accessories to add extra pops of colors! The sheer detailing on the sleeves is such a pretty feminine touch and the bell sleeves are right on-trend for the season. The shorter hem definitely keeps this dress on the fun & flirty side, making it perfect for a date night or girls night out!
Style Tip: One of the only fashion “rules” I follow is that you can show it all, but not all at the same time! The shorter hem on this dress is a great balance to the higher, more modest neckline; highlighting my legs and letting my shoes do all the talking! Next time I wear this sassy LBD, I plan to put my hair up in a big messy topknot to create a no-fuss, effortless look while showcasing the embroidered detail on the chest and the sheer sleeves! If you are wanting to achieve a more casual, laid-back look, I would style this dress with gladiator sandals and tie a chambray or denim jacket around the waist and keep the jewelry to a minimum – an ideal outfit for the Farmer’s Market or a downtown stroll on a beautiful Spring weekend!
This darling dress is an extra 15% off with special code Sabby15, which makes it just $35 from Amarello Boutique!
For size reference – I’m wearing a Small and am 5″3. If you’re looking for more length, size up!
