Let the Sun Shine: Styling a maxi dress

Here I am on the way to happy hour with my friend, Dianne. I just loved how the sun came out at the perfect moment. I had to soak up a few rays before I left my place. I’m not a sun lover, but a minute of warmth does feel nice.

Maxi: Forever 21
Scarf: Walgreens
Sandals: Payless
Bracelet: Street vendor in Santa Fe

I wore this maxi dress in the spring with a blazer and boots. Now, I’m wearing it in summer with sandals and a pashmina-type scarf (it gets cool after sunset in Seattle; I can easily wear this as a wrap if I need to). Best of all, the entire outfit was less than $65 (including the jewelry)

Maxi dresses and skirts look so elegant, and they are also comfortable. I highly recommend adding a maxi dress or skirt to your wardrobe. Do you have one in rotation? How do you style it?

  1. Picture Perfect!

    You certainly have exquisite taste in clothes and shoes, and I love your poses and choice of backdrops! But these pictures are more than modelling a beautiful garment, they are very artistic! You have captured the sun at the perfect moment – even the angle of the lines in the siding adds to the feeling of sunbeams shining on you!!!

  2. Thanks! I love working with light in the morning or evening. I never noticed that the lines in the siding add to the sunbeam effect. I’m glad you pointed that out, er, I mean, I meant to do that 😉

Let's chat! I love hearing from you:
