Summer Maxi Dress

Jul 21, 2015

Dress: Forever21 (Similar) // Necklace: Forever 21  
Shoes: Carmen Marc Valvo (Got for only $9 at TJMaxx!)

I can't help but laugh at that last picture...but Adam insists I put it in here. Today I'm sharing with you an outfit post featuring my new (and first) maxi dress. Yes, I know that's pretty sad. This dress was an amazing find I had during a day of outlet shopping. It was really rainy so there wasn't much else to do but stay inside. When I found the dress I was pretty sure it would fail me once I tried it on. I've never been able to buy a maxi dress. They are always too long for me...and I'm not into falling on my face in the name of fashion! I tried it on a whim, pretty much expecting it to fail, but it turned out to be the perfect length!

Because this dress is so natural with it's cotton embroidery and long length, I decided to create a beach look for this outfit. Messy waves, delicate jewelry, neutral makeup and natural wedges helped create this. The real trick to this look is to not think too much about it. Less is better in this situation. Especially when it comes to jewelry! However, if you want to make this outfit a little bolder, I highly suggest going for edgy wedges instead!

Before I go...let me stress the importance of searching your local TJMaxx sale section. The wedges I'm wearing in these photos (can't see them really) were marked down to only $9 on the shelf. They were Carmen Marc Valvo! Their retail price is $195. Score!!
