Bold! Bright! Chic! The little red dress is an overlooked wardrobe essential, in my opinion. Sometimes you want to stand out without the effort… which is where this little beauty comes in. I’ve had this dress for about a year now, and I’ve gotten so much wear out of it!
Sure, an LBD or and LWD is a solid option, but why not try out a little dress in a brilliant red shade? I’ve worn this LRD to everything from Fourth of July to Athens, Greece, as seen here. If I’m being honest, which I always am with you guys, Athens was my least favorite stop of my entire trip. It was cool to see the Acropolis (although it was quite the hike,) but as a city, I felt it lacked identity. One area that I found quite cute was La Plage, which translates to marble. Aptly named because all of the tiny streets are made of gorgeous marble (pictured above.)
Since we were doing a ton of walking, I paired this little red number with my trusty converse. The sun was so intense (note to everyone: Europe in August can be brutal!) so I wore this Urban Outfitters boater hat basically the whole time. My little Wang bag added in a touch of edge to the otherwise sweet look.
This exact dress is no longer for sale (TEARS because I would have it in 5 colors if so,) but, I managed to find some other great options that will satiate the LRD wardrobe requirement. xx
