Black Sand

I don't care how you are dressed or what you are doing, when you see a beautiful beach at sunset, jump out and take some pictures. Without a doubt, that should be one of the rules of life.

Now that we have that settled, look at this tall dress! Not only is it a true midi, it also has long arms and a crazy cut that is very flattering on our long frames. While It is stunning on it's own, I also wear it in a lot of ways. Now, I know what you are thinking, that low back isn't appropriate for all looks Alicia. You are right. It's not by itself. But I have worn this dress to work with a blazer and went super casual with a belted sweater. It's an excellent tall foundation piece.

Now the shoes, you have seen these before but I am pretty enamored with them...we are definitely booed up right now. They are from SMASH Shoes which is a brand of shoes that only makes sizes 10-13. I am super impressed with the brand, have worn the shoes many times and am a bonafide fan. I can't wait to try more options from them.

I finished the look with a tribal inspired red hot clutch with some subtle frosting. With the cut of the dress, your back is a beautiful statement piece so no need to over accessorize.

Back to the whole run out on the beach at sunset thing. Do it. Seriously, do it. Stop staying in the same lane day in and day out. Live a little. Love a lot and thank Him tirelessly.
