OOTD - Little Black Dress for Summer

I know that we're officially into the summer months now, and should be embracing the season with a colourful wardrobe, but there's something to be said for a little black dress - even in the warmer months! This Aritzia Bennett dress is one of my favourites, and I especially like wearing it in the summer for nights out.  To say that I've worn this dress to death is an understatement, so I try to change up my accessories to make it look fresh and new every time.  Enter this gorgeous statement necklace from Happiness Boutique.  I love how the silver of the necklace is so striking against the black, and adding a big floppy hat puts me right in my comfort zone.  

This gorgeous necklace from Happiness Boutique is completely unlike anything that I have in my collection already.  Typically I go for gold, but I'm seriously loving how crisp and casual silver looks, especially paired with black. I love shopping at online boutiques that offer free worldwide shipping, this is so helpful for us Canadian gals! I can't wait to wear this baby with a super-simple outfit to take it up a notch.

    1. Thanks Eleni - yes, neutral tones all the way! I don't usually wear statement necklaces, but when I do I like them to be huge and unique like this one!

  3. I love everything about this outfit! That floppy hat gives your look a fun retro vibe and that statement necklace is gorgeous! I also love the fun touch that the animal print flats add to your outfit.

    1. Kris! Yes, I'm slowly coming around to the merits of a statement necklace - although my philosophy seems to be 'go big or go home' ;)
