Remixing a maxi




Sunnies: Marc by Marc Jacobs (option) | Earrings: Express (option) | Scarf: Express (sold out in brown, but available in grey here) (option) | Jacket: Express (available in black here) (option - over 65% off! - here) | Dress: Banana Republic (option, Target dupe here) | Bracelets: Pyramid stretch (Gifted) (option), Leopard wrap (Express) (option) | Boots: Corso Como (option)

I've been all about dresses this past week! You last saw this dress here, at the end of summer/ beginning of fall with a multi-strand necklace, flat sandals, and a cognac bag. For winter, I decided to carry over the cognac, but on my feet this time in the form of boots. It's always so hard for me to style maxi dresses and skirts for the winter because the shoes never feel quite right - I end up feeling bottom heavy. But these boots were perfect because of their low profile sole and simple design. A friend styled this dress with a jacket and scarf, so I followed her lead. The leopard scarf fell naturally in place to complement the color of my boots! I really love how a few pieces can take this dress through the winter.

      For once I was able to take all my photos for the week over the weekend - before the snow hit! Though most of it is gone as we speak!

    1. Thank you! I love the idea of maxis in the winter - it's just really hard with shoes! But these boots worked out great!

    1. I'm half tempted to buy mirrored sunnies just so I can conquer that list!! I don't know why I've never bought them…
      And yes! Love this scarf! We really should do that collabo with Ella Pretty!

    1. I probably have *too much* stripes in my closet! I def could wear stripes year round, every day! And they're more of a neutral than you would think - that's the best part!
      Thanks so much for stopping by!
