I’ve always been drawn to simple pieces that make a simple statement. To me they are the finds that I end up relying on the most and have a sense of sophistication to them—less is always more. So what makes the perfect simple dress? This Ted Baker number is the epitome of what we all need in our wardrobe—a dress with feminine shape, a touch of ruffle and a sophisticated neckline and structure.
Is it just me or does this dress make you want to call your girlfriends and plan a girl’s night? But cosmopolitans aside, I love this simple number because it can translate to just about any occasion. I would even pair platform sneakers with it for a sporty vibe or some easy slides for a Sunday Brunch.
I chose to wear it this specific day to a birthday lunch for one of my closest pals at one of our favorite Santa Barbara spots, Tydes at Coral Casino. Everyone joked that I blended in with the pink wallpaper and chairs, which I happily did. It was the perfect choice for the occasion. Ted Baker dress and heels.
