LND (Little Navy Dress)

I'm sure all of y'all have heard of a LBD (Little Black Dress), but have you ever thought of having a LND, a little navy dress? I wear a ton of navy and often find myself wearing more LNDs than LBDs. I love navy as an alternative to black, because it's a neutral color, so other bright colors and fun jewelry can be paired with it, but it's a bit more exciting than basic black. Here are some dresses that prove that a LND can be just as fabulous as a LBD:




J. Crew




Nordstrom




J. Crew



Brooks Brothers



J. Crew

What do you think of having a LND? Have a terrific Tuesday!

P.S. Is anyone else excited for the Real Housewives of NJ premiere tonight?

  3. I love these! I agree, I used to only wear black, but navy is one of my favorite colors, so I have started looking for more basic, navy dresses! Most of the summer jewelry I have goes better with navy :-)

  6. I love navy dresses, I have several but I think I could go for a "fancier" version like those. And I LOVE RHNJ!!!! Oh my goodness, they are the most entertaining of all the seasons to me!

  9. I love this idea! The first J.Crew dress and the one from Brooks Brothers are tempting for sure!

    As for RHONJ...they sometimes film in my neighborhood so I'll be watching it in London hoping to show my housemates where my parents live! (but not what more NJ folk are life, thankfully!)

  11. I just got a LND this weekend. It's a professional little Calvin Klein number, and I can't wait to bust it out this week! Now I'm only wondering if matching navy kitten heels are too much... hmmm

  17. LOVE the idea of the LND, and I especially like the classic lines of the Brooks Brothers one above. One great thing about the LND is it looks much better with yellow accessories than the LBD. Nobody wants to look like a bumblebee and the LND is the perfect solution to that.

    I'm a new follower and love your blog. Thanks for your comment on mine, too!

  26. I'm all about the LND! I'm not a fan of black, so navy is my neutral. I find black a little too abrasive for some reason. I also feel that it complements bright colors so much better than black, which can make bright colors seem a little off-putting. Plus, gotta love that it's a preppy staple color!

  27. Most people say that half of the wardrobe is black, I have to say that mine is navy. I loooooooove navy b/c it pairs well with so many other colors (green, orange, pink, yellow, etc.). Always stylish and classic! Yay for the LND!

  28. I love the classic look of navy with white pants, shorts, or a dress!
