Most people are familiar with the fashion term “LBD” – Little Black Dress. For those navy lovers out there though, you can’t go wrong with investing in a “LND” – Little Navy Dress. Every woman should own at least one LBD or LND that is flattering, comfortable, classic, and stylish.
Over the past year or so, I’ve definitely leaned towards having a preference for an all-navy wardrobe versus an all-black wardrobe. When I saw this little navy number in Old Navy’s new arrivals for maternity, I knew it would make a great transition piece for fall.
I’ve styled this particular look for all those fashionistas who are struggling to find a dress for an early fall wedding. September is by far my favorite month (it’s birthday month!!), but the temperature can be tricky, especially for an evening wedding. This particular dress from Old Navy is going to be perfect for a mid-September outdoor wedding that we are attending. If it’s warm that evening, the knee length hem and elbow length sleeves will help keep one cool. If it’s on the chiller side, the elbow length sleeves will provide a little extra coverage, without having to wear a sweater.
Plus, the fit of this particular dress is so flattering to this third trimester mama-to-be. The material is so comfortable and breathable – both a must for this time of year and this stage in pregnancy. I love that it accentuates baby, but doesn’t hug me so tight that I’m uncomfortable. And, you can’t beat the price point!
One of my favorite ways to style a navy dress is by pairing it with pearls and gold accessories. Both provide such a classic, preppy look – which you all should know by now is my style preference. One of my favorite places to shop for these preppy accessories is the East Coast brand, Kiel James Patrick (KJP). Hubby recently gifted me this beautiful Sarah Patrick bracelet (a jewelry line a part of the KJP line) for my birthday and I’m in love. [With the bracelet or me I wonder?] It’s seriously so gorgeous and delicate and pairs perfectly with another pearl strand bracelet I have from KJP. Paired with my KJP pearl earrings and chunky pearl necklace, they are the perfect accessories to glam up this LND.
I hope this post inspired you to think about investing in a LND that can easily be transitioned from season to season. You can shop all the outfit details by clicking on the links below!
