A simple black dress

Dress: Target // Shoes: Katie and Kelly via DSW (old) // Clutch: Stella & Dot C/o my sister // Necklace: My Stella & Dot // Bracelets: My Stella & Dot (1,2,3)

What is it about a simple black dress...? I saw Lilly mention this on her Instagram a couple weeks ago. I loved the style of the dress and best of all, the price. So one day I stopped during my lunch hour to look around. I stumbled upon this dress. It was the last one in my size and 50% off. I tried it on, and the rest was history. I also picked up a pair of white skinny pants. Last pair, in my size and on sale. Target can be hit or miss with sizes. It was like finding gold : )

Anyways, I wore this dress to our 11th Wedding Anniversary dinner. B and I took a stay cation getaway weekend while his parents watched all 3 kids. I have to say we don't do this often, but it is very nice to do this once in a while. And the funny thing is, after dinner both nights, we went straight to bed. We slept 12 hours both nights. What?! I didn't know we were that tired. That's my story and I'm sticking to it :) Either that, or we are really lazy. Ha. But Seriously, taking care of 3 little ones can be exhausting. We decided sleeping was much better than a night out.

And if you are on the hunt for a simple and beautiful black dress, run to your Target. There is something about the design that makes it very flattering. The ruched design on the side sucks it all in :)

Have a great Monday!
