I admit- I’m feeling a little ahead of the curve for Marionberry’s Trend of the Month. I picked up this yellow blazer as part of my shopping budget last month from Goodwill for a whopping $4.99 and wore it last week. When Marion announced the trend, I said I’VE SO GOT THIS! Done and DONE!
Little Black Dress: Banana Republic Outlet (circa 2008?)
Necklace: Francesca’s (circa 2011?)
Shoes: Target (circa 2011?)
This LBD is my favorite…I got it from the Banana Republic Outfit forever ago and wear it all the time…case in point- my bridal shower in 2009 (sorry for the boxes over my beautiful bridesmaids…just practicing a little privacy, although the boxes look a little creepy!)
Adding pops of color via a blazer, shoes or a necklace really makes an LBD pop! Especially when it is a sunny, bright yellow…it easily takes a dark dress into the spring/summer season!
How do you accessorize your LBD for spring/summer?

Love the yellow blazer! When I have to go to the “real” office in the summer, I also like to top a shift dress with a lightweight blazer (sometimes a cardigan). I don’t have anything as colorful as you, though – may have to think about adding something like that to my collection…

The yellow blazer looks great with that dress! Both fit you perfectly and I love that you coordinated your necklace with the blazer as well.
Love the yellow blazer with the little black dress. Great pop of colour!!!

Love the yellow blazer and necklace! Great way to summer-ize your LBD!
Ha ha ha! The boxes are cracking me up!
I love that you got that blazer at a thrift shop! I had my LBD on when we came to your house. I usually wear it with a scarf. It’s not a very structured dress or anything, though.
Yellow and black look so perfect together. They’re a combination of gloom and cheer, edgy and playful. One of my favorite color combinations. You look adorable. Following you now!
May the force be with you.

Fabulous looking jacket and even more fabulous price! It goes really well with the black dress and top up with the necklace, it’s just rocking!

I always love a good blazer! And at that price? Can’t beat it! I need more yellow in my closet because it is such a happy color!
Oooh, you’re so right, that dress is stunning! I love how it looks on you – and a LBD is so versatile, isn’t it?!
