Light Gray is a Summer Must Have Color with

I'm so excited to do another mini series with my wonderful sponsor Lulu*s. For this series I'm going to show you how to style this lovely dress 3 different ways. I know everyone has heard of the term "little black dress" but I personally think that everyone should own a "little white dress" for summer. This dress is beyond comfortable and is super flattering. It is also very versatile and it can be dressed up or down. For this look I decided to dress it up and wear bright red lipstick and heels to spice things up.

I think light gray is a must have summer color because it's so light, breezy, and works with all different skin tones. Dark colors reflect heat and I prefer to stay away from darker colors when I know I'm going to be outside for longer periods of time. I already have dark hair that I have to deal with, wearing lighter colors or a hat really helps keep the sun away.

Lulu*s recently sent me a few items one of which was this O'Neil Coco Washed Black backpack! I love using back packs as diaper bags because they are much easier to tote around and fit the necessities into. They are also so much cheaper and can be used as regular bags after I'm done having babies. If I have a little girl one day, I'm sure she would be more than happy to sport around this back pack to middle school, at that time it will be "mom's cool vintage back pack" (;

I also was sent this lovely moondust skinny belt. I think it really completed my look and kept everything in balance. I usually prefer to thrift my belts but this light gray vegan leather is top quality and will go with so many of my other dresses, tops, and bottoms. Speaking of dresses, I am in love with this tilt-a-whirl sleeveless ivory dress. Like I mentioned earlier, I think everyone should own a little white dress. I personally love this one because it's an a-line dress which is most flattering on my figure and it has a zipper in the front. The zipper makes nursing one hundred times easier than having to unbutton several buttons.
