Summer Shade

7.28.2014

Thrifted Kimchi Blue pleated maxi (similar here), Spiked ladder necklace (similar here), Sophie crossbody bag c/o M.Z. Wallace, Gold bracelets from Forever 21 and Sheer Addiction, Forever 21 wedges. Shot by Isaac Lacey.




A great, printed maxi dress is a lifesaver come summer. It couldn't be more effortless (just toss it on and go) plus it's a cinch to dress up or down with the right accessories and shoes. Here I opted for wedges, a stack of gold baubles, and a subtle braided halo as we headed to our friend Tomas' 'Boogie Buffet' last week--a daytime dance party that had us grooving into the early evening. I don't know about you, but sometimes life just calls for a good ol' dance-off, and that's exactly what this party delivered. The dress code was 'Your Summer Best,' and between the eye-popping hue of this maxi and it's sheer, flowing silhouette, I thought it fit the bill perfectly. What's your summer best?

  13. Amazing! You look so gorgeous in this outfit - I love the way you styled it in a kind bohemian style <3 Sadly, I haven't found the perfect maxi dress for me yet, but luckily summer hasn't ended yet, does it? ;)
