A gray body con dress will take you lots of places- from work to a casual night out, it’s all about what you pair with it to style it. I’m super casual here with my favorite white converse, but add a blazer and some heels, and I’m ready to have a work meeting. Add some nude sandals and a suede moto, and you’re ready to go out. At only $55 and available in a bunch of colors, it’s one of those wardrobe must-haves.
I love the length – it’s not super short, so it’s not overly sexy. The curve hugging silhouette is enough. The high neck lends itself to pretty lariats and statement necklaces. The necklace I have on is part of my latest Rocksbox set. It’s delicate yet edgy, and I love the adjustable circle. My earrings are also from my set. I’ve been wearing them constantly, and they will be particlulary cute during the holidays since they have an icicle shape. If you feel like you could use some unique jewelry pieces but don’t have the time to shop, try Rocksbox and use code ‘DONTDRESSLIKEAMOMXOXO‘ for one month of free service. They send 3 pieces of jewelry at a time for you to try out. If you love any pieces, you can keep them for a member’s only discount. I love that as a member I get a $21 credit towards the purchase of any item in my set, plus a full set discount if I want to keep all the pieces – which let me tell you, you will [want to keep them all]. When you send your set back, you will receive 3 new pieces to try. All the styles you are sent are based on a little survey you take, and are hand-chosen by a Rocksbox stylist. They have everything from classic, to trendy, to statement styles.
I’ve linked everything below, including the bag I usually head out to dinner with (but it works casual too, just doesn’t have enough space for my momming duties!). I highly recommend this dress – you’ll find you want to wear it all the time, and may get a second color once it’s in your closet!
