May the Maxi be with you

What I wore:

Dress: Forever 21
Floppy Hat: Forever 21
Necklace: Forever 21
Bag: Oufi
Flip Flops: Old Navy
Lips: Avon

A couple of weekends ago I was at Forever 21 browsing their Yellow Tag Deals. They had some maxi dresses near the front of the store on sale and since I didn't yet own one I thought, why not? I really liked this basic black maxi and could barely resist the light and graceful feeling of walking in it. After trying it on and realizing it was only $12, I was sold! I knew my floppy hat ($5 from Forever 21, surprised?) and new maxi dress would look great together, and they did! I felt absolutely fabulous and I had so much fun taking these photos. I couldn't help but feel like Rachel Zoe or Audrey Hepburn in my statement pieces. The drama of a floppy hat is riveting!

Near the end of the shoot I realized one of my flip flops decided to go kaput. I still say that Old Navy flip flops are the best, most comfortable and last the longest! It was just this pair's time to go I guess. Luckily for me I was wearing a maxi so it wasn't noticable. However, walking was a bit of an issue and that's where my husband came in. He insisted upon carrying me and that's what he did. My knight in shining armor!

Is there no maxi dress in your closet yet? How about a floppy hat? Maybe it's time to go out and try a few on!

  2. You look great!!! Gotta love those deals haha

  3. I love this maxi dress on you! And what a great deal on that and that fabulous hat! Forever 21 is the best! I have really been wanting to buy a floppy hat, I still need to find the right one for me though.

    Sad to hear about your flip flop, but how sweet of your husband! Definitely sounds like a keeper! :)

  4. You look gorgeous in the maxi dress and hat! Too bad you don't live closer to Oregon, you would love the hat store here :)

  5. How cute! This is definitely a very Rachel Zoe look. I only have the one maxi from Dorothy Perkins but I've worn it a few times and it's perfect, I love it so much. I saw a Michael Michael Kors on Hautelook the other day that I'm absolutely crazy about, it was a patterned blue that reminded me of the ocean.

  6. authentic summer look, so great on you!


  7. "May the maxi be with you", you are so funny JenMarie :) You look amazing, SO glamorous! Your hair, your face, all of you. Just stunning. I imagine you walking down a beach in slow motion, breeze playing with your hair, well you can finish the story your self, but my point is just, this is how to do everyday glam. J`adore! Hugs xx

  8. you definitely looked good with your maxi dress and you look so beautiful with your floppy hat...that is one thing that is lacking in my current obsession...soon will find the perfect hat for sure...

    My first maxi I bought about two years ago. I didn't know if I would like the style, but it is now one of my all time favorite dresses!

    You look beautiful as always.
