5 Days, 5 Ways: The Little Black Dress

Today's "5 Days, 5 Ways" theme is dresses!  I love dresses for spring and summer and I have a couple in particular that get a lot of good wear.

Five Days, Five Ways Link Up

I have 2 black tank dresses that are pretty much my ultimate go-do dresses.  One is from Gap (from 4 or 5 years ago) and has a slightly full bottom half.  The other is from the J.Crew Factory store (2 years ago) and has a slightly more straight bottom and ruffles around the arms.  

What I love about these dresses is how versatile they are.  I can seriously wear the same dress over and over and style it differently each time.  

Bridal Shower
Baby Shower
Bachelorette Party

Yup, I wear these dresses for pretty much everything you can imagine.  

Summer lunch with friends!

All dressed up for a friend's wedding!
And this is why I don't blog outfits of the day...

These pics were taken by my personal photographer (AKA my 11 year old brother).

This took about 6 attempts.
Dress:  Gap (old)
Cardigan: Gap (buy it here)
Shoes:  Madden Girl (old from TJ Maxx)
Sunglasses: Fossil (fairly recent from Gordman's)

This one isn't too bad!
Jacket:  Gap (old, but they have cute ones here)

Okay, it's not 5 ways, but my brother and I were too hungry to take anymore photos!

I most commonly wear these dresses with my denim jacket or a cardigan.  Since I have a lot of  ridiculous amount of cardigans I have a lot of options with colors.  

C'mon over to Along the Lines of Style and check out how other bloggers style their dresses!

(PS ~  I'll get back to more school / teaching related posts next week!)


  1. I used to have those same shoes! I loved them, but the heel got worn down past the point of repair. I really need to find some new black shoes with a reasonable heel height!

    1. I LOVE these shoes and will be super sad when they wear out... I don't wear them often, but they're perfect for when I want to wear heels!

  2. That dress looks so comfortable and breezy - you can get so much wear out of it! I love dresses that you can wear on a lazy day or at work--this one looks like it fits the bill!
