Seafoam and Snakeskin

Seafoam and Snakeskin 
Dress-Banana Republic, Jacket-H&M, Handbag-c/o Kooba, Shoes-Urban Outfitters, Bangles-c/o Kenneth Cole & vintage, Rings-H&M, Necklace-c/o EmersonMade, Sunglasses-Ray-Bans, Lipstick-Revlon #712 "Hot Coral" (one of my favs!)

The maxi dress is the perfect choice when I want to feel comfortable but still be stylish (seen recently here). I love how I can slip it on and instantly feel put together--and it only requires one piece. I bought this seafoam number two years ago for a wedding and fell in love with it. It's more formal than most of my maxi dresses but that's what makes it fun for day wear. I mixed it with my Kooba handbag for some flair but added gold sandals and a cargo jacket to give it a more casual feel.

i also love that with a maxi dress, it feels so put-together for being only one piece, and you can accessorize all you want with shoes, jewelry and bag! love this look! the color is hot for spring.

great outfit!

i love the idea of wearing a more formal dress during the day, i think that's what was not working with one my recent maxi dresses, it looked too boho, i need to posh it up!

Lovely color on you! Maxi dresses, especially ones out of jersey, make me feel like I'm in my pj's, except it's socially acceptable to wear out=the perfect win-win situation!

jessie said...

another MAJOR added bonus of wearing a maxi dress? you don't have to worry about shaving your legs!!! :) (TMI?)

you look fab in that bright color, and i am TOTALLY coveting your snakeskin bag. i have a snakeskin pair of shoes that i wore on TCC yesterday, but i can't get enough of it!
