Maximized and accessorized

I wore this maxi dress on Wednesday because I wanted to stay comfortable and cool in the 85 degree weather, but it’s pretty boring on its own, so I pondered a few different ways to spice it up. I just got the pink and gold bracelets earlier in the week, so I threw them on and liked the contrast against the blue. The scarf seems a bit impractical, but it was actually lightweight enough that it didn’t make me overheat. And the sunglasses - oh, the sunglasses! Normally I don't care too much about the brand of an item as long as it's well made, but I have to admit that I'm very excited to own a pair of Oscar de la Renta sunglasses! Not only were they just ten dollars at TJ Maxx, but they have a fantastic purple ombre to them.

Dress: Forever 21
Sandals: Target
Sunglasses: Oscar de la Renta from TJ Maxx
Scarf: free from aunt
Bracelets: Cost Plus World Market


  1. Very cute.. love the bangles and the free scarf from your aunt.. score!

  2. I love the scarf you paired with it. Lovely print and colors. And the fit of that maxi looks gorgeous on you!


  3. Your husband made your header too? How sweet! Yeah my husband made it while I was at work so I wasn't there to bug him or else I would have done the same thing!

    Ok, so I am LOVING this look! I saw that bag at Urban Last week and it was on sale for only $13.99!! I wanted to buy it SOO bad but can't because I can't shop until my 60 days is up! Boohoo!

    Well anyways I can see you wear it and dream... :)

  4. This whole look is gorgeous. I think I will love maxis forever :) I really like the cute elephants on your scarf :)

  5. Those sunnies are terrific! TJMaxx had so many sunnies on clearance, it was all I could do to only buy one pair.

    Chic on the Cheap

  6. Love that scarf and maxi, great! xo
