Dress: Missguided (50% off using code ‘gobabe’) | Shoes: Steve Madden (under $100) | Purse: Aldo | Sunglasses: Quay

Up until recently my entire wardrobe consisted of 80% black. Truthfully, I was scared to wear colour and thought black was the easiest way to go. My wardrobe literally was black, white and grey! When I decided I wanted to start blogging I also decided I wanted to evolve my fashion too. I wanted to incorporate more colours, textures and patterns. And I wanted to try new styles I shied away from before!

One style I always steered clear from was pleats. Why? I honestly don’t know, lol. I just never liked pleats and never wore them! So when I was browsing the Missguided website one day I came across this LBD with pleats. I was initially drawn to it because of the bell sleeves (I’m a huge fan of bell sleeves). So I purchased it and when it got delivered I HATED it! I was so so close to returning it but never got around to it. Looks like this procrastination worked in my favor because I decided to give it one last try…. and I LOVED it!

Honestly, I don’t know why I disliked it so much when I first tried it on. But since actually giving it a try I have to say it’s probably one of the most versatile little black dresses I own. You can pair it with a heel and it looks good enough for a party or date night. And in the Summer you can put it with a pair of gladiator sandals for running around town in!

Verdict? I have a new obsession with pleats AND I think you need this dress in your life!!
