Closet Staples: LBD

Hey, y’all!

I want to begin by saying, “THANK YOU!” for the love you showed on mine and Daniel’s previous post, on how we met. He was exited to be able to contribute, so expect additional appearances from him in the future.

Today, I’m continuing my closet staples series with an item that every woman should have in her closet: a little black dress aka LBD.

LBDs come in all shapes and sizes, so find one that works for your body. The one I’m wearing is from Old Navy, and it’s a style they continue to put out year after year.

The great thing about an LBD is its versatility.


By throwing on sneakers, a cap, and tying a flannel shirt around your waist, you have an instant outfit for when you want to be comfy yet cute.

Church or Date Night

With cooler temperatures, it’s becoming necessary to dress warmer. By adding a fun scarf and booties, you can easily make this “plain” dress a little more interesting. This would be really cute to wear to church.

Night Out

Adding fedora instantly adds a “cool” vibe to an outfit. If you’re going out, this combination makes for a fun outfit.

As many of you know, I’m a teacher. Pointed-toe, nude flats elongate the leg and a cardigan adds a pop of color and warmth.

I also want to say that these pictures were taken before I got my extensions, ha ha! I haven’t given them up that quickly!


Closet Staples: Olive Pants + Discount Code

Hey, y’all! I hope you’re having a good day.

Are you a colored pants kind of person? Other than black and white, olive pants are the most versatile to me, so that’s why they’re included in my closet staples series today.

I recently picked up this pair from Downtown Allie. They’re super stretchy, making them super comfortable. Additionally, they maintain their shape throughout the day, which is a win-win in my book.

Some fool-proof pairings with olive pants are leopard, stripes, and cognac. You’ll notice pretty quickly how these items appear in each of my outfits.

Downtown Allie has a plethora of other colors in this style of pants, and if you use the code SARAH15, you can get 15% off your purchase.

How would you style these olive pants?
