Modern Sheath



Though I am a stay-at-home mom and don't normally have a reason to get as dressed up as I used to when I was working, I believe every woman should have at least one or two classic sheath dresses in her closet.  They are so versatile (date nights, church, Christmas parties, weddings, work), will never go out of style and you can change up the accessories to create different looks.  I love the modern twist of this London Times version - the combination of the "baby" peplum and graphic colorblocking is ultra-flattering...and because the fabric is scuba, it's incredibly comfortable too.  





What I'm wearing:
c/o London Times dress (here - also love this striped dress & this mod shift), c/o Fabulous on a Dime necklace (similar), Nina booties (similar), Target sunnies (similar), Merona clutch (here), Lips: CoverGirl Blast Flipstick Smooch

Kimberly!! This might be my favorite outfit post to date :). This dress is to die for, and you are drop dead gorgeous wearing it! London Times can thank you for me signing up... I've got to find a way to hold myself back from purchasing this dress!.. That is if you don't sell it out first! Bravo--Whitley
