Prairie girl





Sunnies: Marc by Marc Jacobs | Necklace: Express | Bag: Kate Spade (optioncheaper option) | Dress: Forever 21 (option, option)  | Vest: Two by Vince Camuto (option, option)  | Bangles: Random handful | Wedges: Ivanka Trump (option, option

The last time I wore this dress was almost one year ago here! I'm glad I decided to read it again before writing this post, because I was about to talk about the same things I did then - that I've had it forever, that I love it, that it's awesome quality for being Forever 21.

Today's styling is obviously not a huge change from what you saw before, but this time, I did decide to wear a denim vest over it. Inevitably the denim plus floral combo makes me feel like I should be running through a prairie with wild flowers all around me, but sometimes you just have to go with it! It's one of my favorite maxis and I don't see myself letting go of it any time soon!

    1. Thanks! The cut of the one is perfect and it has a bit of stretch to it too which helps from keeping it too boxy! I love it! Hope you find your perfect one!

  3. LOL @ "running through a prairie with wildflowers." I feel that way in any kind of denim jacket and I even struggle with wearing a chambray shirt. IF this look is prairie girl, it's the very polished, sophisticated kind. Not the Laura Ingalls kind.

    1. This morning getting ready, I thought to myself that I most absolutely wore this (just not a maxi) in the 90s. And it made me miss Contempo and 5-7-9. Haha! But funny- back in the day, I totally still shopped at Express! It was my gateway to youuuu!!

  11. Forever 21 has some of the best summer dresses. I love the mix of floral prints and love the denim jacket. I would never think "prairie girl" or as Gina says, "Laura Ingalls" (Oh my gosh, I loved that show!)

  13. I love everything...the dress, the shoes, even the accessories. Just beautiful. By added the vest, you made this outfit totally different.

  14. I am wearing a maxi today as well, and was debating if I should take pictures in it, because it's so simple, I am definitely lacking in the shoe department, but maybe I'll copy your style and add a vest for the rest of the day and take some pics. Another "how to style what I already own" pin worthy outfit, love it

    1. But i do struggle with "simplicity" in the summer. In the winter, you can layer to add interest, which is more difficult (and uncomfy) to do in the summer. But there are some dresses that are just as beautiful and interesting on its own! Yours could be one of these so don't discount it!

  17. Perfection! Everything looks perfect together! The necklace is so cool with the whole outfit and I don't think I would've thought of putting it with this! You have such a good eye.
