The Black Coffee Date Dress

It’s been a minute since I’ve done a fashion post, but I adore this black dress so much, it inspired me to get back at it!

This dress says “coffee date”. Whether catching up with a dear friend, or day dreaming at a cafe with your love, this dress just seems right. A cappuccino just seems like the most fitting accessory, doesn’t it? ☕️

Something I’ve been focusing on the last year and a half when it comes to fashion is—do I like it or do I love it? If you simply like it, the chances are great it will tire you in 6 months, and will end up taking valuable space in your closet.  I carefully select clothing items that I love! Those pieces that I just can’t wait to wear.  Closet staples that are classic and comfortable.  Sure to stand the test of time.

This black dress is a new closet staple of mine.  Its elegant, simple, and so comfortable. It’s cool and breezy, which is perfect for the humid Florida days that are soon to commence.  It’s stretchy and basically feels like you’re wearing a giant t-shirt. Not mad about it.

Also, I gotta tell you–I am a sucker for buttons down the front of anything.  I just think it gives such a subtle detail, and a touch of class.

I appreciate versatile clothing pieces, and this one is just that.  You can easily dress this up with some wedges and dressy earrings.  Or you can keep things casual like I have pictured here.  The darling coffee date dress.

It makes me happy to know that I can wear this dress in the fall too! Some loafers and a long cardigan will cozy this dress up.  Worth every penny!

Well, before I begin making dinner, I must mention that straw purse I’m holding! It’s a cute little vintage find and was only $12 at a local vintage market.  I was smitten when I laid eyes on it. I wonder what adventures it’s been on? 😉

For the Love of Wood: Featuring JORD Watches

JORD Frankie Series Zebrawood Champagne Watch

Disclosure: The watch featured in this post was gifted to me by JORD. I only partner with brands I truly love. All opinions are my own. Thank you, JORD!

I love wood. So much, in fact, I would live in a cabin if I could.

Upon discovering JORD wood watches, it was really a love at first sight kind of situation. After seeing the unique watch in person–opening it’s beautifully crafted wood box, feeling its quality, admiring its details–I’m smitten. Positively smitten.

I’m a nature lover. I love me some lofty mountains, tall grassy fields, thick forests you can get lost in…funny thing is: I live in Florida…In the city. This watch not only tells the time, it takes me to another time. The wood material brings me straight back to my happy place: the mountains and the forest.

Here I am, sipping my iced mocha, enjoying my favorite local park. Surrounded by city sounds and the summer heat, it just takes a glance at my wrist to remind me of what lies close to my heart. Perhaps I could pretend I’m drinking hot cocoa and enjoying the Smoky Mountain National Park instead…😉
