The {Midi} Black Dress

Happy Tuesday friend! Now I love an LBD as much as the next girl. But, as I’ve grown older, I’ve wanted something more modest. Something that’s stylish but comfortable. Something that whispers rather than shouts. Which means that right now, I am having a total love affair with...
