Summer is coming to a close but there is still time to show off some of your chic warm weather favorites. As the season's begin to change I tend to revert back to black, my NYC staple color. I wore this look in LA during the BlogHer conference. People always assume that a little black dress is something that can only be worn in the evening, but with the right styling, the afternoon can be perfect time to wear such a look. This seemingly tropical location is actually set in DTLA, and it fully highlighted the versatility of this LBD. I paired it with this gorgeous layered convertible Isabel & Chloe necklace that can be worn individually or as a combination of all three. I will be packing this dress for my month long Thailand adventure starting next week, which I am so looking forward to. My flat two toned Loeffler Randall sandals add a causal element for a tropical climate, but are still stylish enough for nighttime too.
