How on earth has my closet been void of the Little Blue Dress for all these years? For a girl who broadcasts her love of classic styles, colors, and silhouettes - this is simply inexcusable. When I spotted this cute little dress in the store, my mind did a quick inventory scan and I couldn't even make myself believe that I didn't have something similar already in my closet.

Navy is the new black, yes? It's such a rich color that begs to be paired with everything from browns, to bright pinks, emerald green, yellow, white...and the list just continues. Given the simple solid color of this dress, I knew it was going to be a great base for one of my favorite jackets that I picked up last year and wore all the time. (Don't worry, I tracked a few down for you!)

I'm having a moment right now with these beautiful boots I scored on sale (and then promo!) with all the crazy after-Christmas sales that happened this year. Sometimes I even amaze myself with these little bouts of patience I have instead of cracking under the pressure and paying full price. These beautiful boots were well worth the wait and twice as sweet knowing I bought them for a steal. Definitely keep your eyes peeled for what major retailers are about to consider "past season" even though most of you will be cold to core for a few more months! You can find some amazing things are prices you can't pass up. Me, well, I live in Las Vegas and I just started looking at new swimsuits for spring and summer....right after the holidays...and it was de-press-ing. #WhereIsTheGymAgain

Old Navy : Dress (limited sizes, be sure to use the"find in store"option!) | Banana Republic : Jacket, try here, here, | Madewell : Boots (sale!)

Aside from the great color of today's dress, I just love the shape, the length, and the 3/4 sleeves because together, that means this dress is going to work in your closet for at least 3 of the 4 seasons! Great for layering in the fall and winter with tights, boots, scarves, and jackets! In the spring and summer, add a few bright pieces like a pink cardigan, maybe a screen crossbody bag and your favorite sandals. Don't you just love when a dress doesn't have to be banished to back of the closet for half the year? Me too!

Do you have a little navy dress in your closet already? How have you styled it? I can even see myself finding a new dark-wash denim dress this year just for more fun with navy! No need to always default to the safe bet of a black dress anymore! Navy has certainly got you covered!
