This conversation today is brought to you today because of my partnership with Stonyfield Yogurt and their partnership with prAna. All opinions all my own.

Summer is just about here…. can you believe it? My kids have just a few days of school left and then we’re attacking our time together like we mean it. We plan to have a lot of local adventures, a few vacations and lots of time at home to just be free range. I’m not sure who is more excited about it…. me or them!

I, like the rest of the world, went through the Konmari process this spring. I ended up clearing the closets and donating just about all of my clothes. It feels good to be left with the best- the work horse pieces that I feel great in when I wear. The one thing I was missing was a little black dress. I didn’t donate the old one and I’m glad I did. Just last week we had a funeral to unexpectedly attend…I was glad it was still hanging in my closet.

My requirements for a new LBD were simple. I needed to fit into my every day life as much as it could fit into my fancy life. We spend a lot of time at Six Flags and out exploring our local parks. I wanted something that could rock those hot summer days but could also be dressed up for casual date nights and fancy occasions.

Because, from time to time my job as a blogger presents me with opportunities to get dressy and mingle with grown ups…. Like these guys I got to interview a few weeks ago…


That’s some of the members of NKOTB in case you’re wondering. And yes, it was awesome. And yes, I will share more about that another day.

I have found my dress and I am in love. Meet Quinn… from prAna.

Little Black Dress 3 Ways

One of the things I adore about this dress is that it can be dressed up or down. I can throw it over my bathing suit as a cover up or with the right shoes and jewels, I could rock it at a summer outdoor wedding. It’s the perfect dress for me! It is made from stretchy, quick-drying fabric made from recycled polyester and has an amazing built-in bra. They are Bluesign® Certified, which means it meets the highest standards in the textile industry for environmental health and safety and chemical management.

And on top of that prAna as a company is committed to fair trade and sustainability.

We go out of our way to ensure the impact we make on the world is mostly confined to our aesthetic. By using materials and partnering with companies and factories that adhere to strict guidelines for safety and efficacy, we’re able to make the beautiful and functional products we love, in a way that we can all feel good about.

Best of all! It can go from day to night with just a few tweaks!

This dress is the real deal for summer mom fashion. It can go from day to night with just a few accessory changes!

My dress search is officially over. Having in my closet is a no brainer… the other thing that’s a no brainer is having Stonyfield Yogurt for breakfast. At this point, I’ve tried just about all of them, but this one is my favorite.

I also really love the plain whole milk yogurt… spoiler alert, it’s great in place of sour cream!
