That Maxi Dress













Dress: DKNY (old), similar here & here & more options below!
Sunglasses: Loft (old), similar here
Watch: c/o The Camden Watch Company
Sandals: Loft (old), similar here

I love maxi dresses. Although I haven't shown much on the blog, I've been wearing them all summer. They're super comfortable and a great way to look more feminine on an every day look. This DKNY one has always been a long time favorite. It's no longer available, but I was able to find very similar dresses which I have linked below!

This dress is so old that I actually wore it on the blog before on here. I'm slightly embarrassed to share it, but it is kinda cool to see how much the blog as evolved. I think going forward I will do more repeat outfits because that is who I am. I buy clothes and I do wear them more than once. They may be styled different, but it is all the same. Plus, I talk about versatility a lot and it would be nice to showcased that to you guys. I want this blog to be as genuine as possible.

P.S. I just realized this is my last full week of work before my medical leave! How Crazy!!

P.P.S Have you guys entered into the Nordstrom gift card giveaway yet?! Only a few days left to enter and it will be perfect for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! The early access starts tomorrow for all card holders! Head here for entry :)

  1. I have some old posts I am pretty ashamed of! I haven't deleted them though because I figure they show the growth. I just looked at yours and think it is lovely. I love this maxi on you!

  3. I love wearing maxi dresses. This one looks gorgeous on you! And haha, I also have some pretty embarrassing old posts on my blog- before my blog was a fashion blog, it was all beauty and there were a ton of amateur iPhone shots of my face. Yeah... those posts are long deleted, haha.

  4. I love maxi dresses too! They are so comfortable and perfect for summer! Also, I love that you will be doing more closet rewinds because I think that's so true, we all buy clothes and wear them multiple times and styled different ways and it's great to show versatility. Hope you're having a great week!

  7. I too love maxi dresses, but since losing weight have yet to buy any this year! A lot of them fit so funny or have crazy prints. I need basic, or something like this that's toned down! (;

    1. Aren't they the best?! Well this is perfect timing for your because a lot of maxi's have been on sale lately and I am trying so hard not to buy anymore haha! I do agree a neutral maxi is the best!

  8. I LOVE this dress! The watercolor print is so perfect for the beach -- nothing wrong with an oldie but goodie when it's as good as this! I like your decision to feature pieces more than once on the blog. I've definitely re-worn several of mine and always link back to how I styled it previously, because this is #reallife and like you said, who buys something and wears it only once?? I think it's extremely useful and a great sales tactic to show more than one way to style a piece. Hope you're having a lovely week, and although the medical leave isn't exactly a happy occasion, I hope you can enjoy it as much as possible!

  10. I like seeing the progress of blogs so I think it's cool you're willing to share it. Also definitely share repeat looks! We all style them differently and wear them in real life so why not on our blogs too?

  20. What a beautiful maxi dress and it's such a fun piece for the beach. I checked out your first post how you wore it before and it's actually a very good idea to repeat outfit so you can show different ways to style it. And I love your first post too, it doesn't look bad at all!

  22. I don't have maxi dresses... I like how they look on other girls (like you for example), but I have never bought one for myself...

    I invite you to visit my travel blog and read my latest posts... I hope you'll like them :)
