MiXT part tres

 A maxi dress is an effortlessly chic summer piece that every lady should have at least one of in her closet. I honestly used to HATE maxi dresses, I think it was because I always associated them with the whole boho style, which at the time I was not a fan of. I only seemed to see browns and peasant styles which were not for me. Times have changed however and maxis are available in nearly every sort of fabric and print that you can imagine. I purchased this floral maxi from dressbarn yesterday, so of course I had to wear it today!  

I see no boho or brown in this dress that is for sure! I love that this color combo is somewhat unexpected, but totally gorgeous together. Bold. Bright. Beautiful. These earrings are a favorite, even though I haven't really worn them with...well...anything--until yesterday I didn't seem to have the right piece to pair them with. I scored them at H&M earlier this year for under $3!

The all over pattern keeps the eye moving and unfocused--not like some patterns which can have the tendency to create a giant bullseye on the body--who wants that?!

Because this pattern is pretty fierce I chose a simple #ArmParty-lots of gold bangles from dressbarn & a cobalt dome bracelet from Shopko. 
Although I wore this dress to work today with a new pair of coral-orange sandals from dressbarn..
what if I wanted to take this look from everyday to be fit for a special event or wedding? I swapped out the sandals for this wedge. The best part? I scored these thrifting for $7 today!
This clutch would also work perfectly, because it can hold all of the essentials! I found it at a resale store yesterday for $4.
So since I've spoken about the accessories.. are you ready to hear how much this dress is? It's part of dressbarn's summer sale right now and is only $29.99 for sizes 4-16 and $34.99 for sizes 14W-24W; talk about a great deal for a gorgeous dress! What makes it even better? It has a bow that ties at the neck & comes with pockets! :)

Hope you're having a great week!
