Would you believe I have actually never worn a maxi dress beyond the summer before? Summer maxi dresses are my jam. I’ve always loved the look of a maxi dress with a big chunky blanket scarf for fall, but always struggled to find the right pair of shoes to go with it. I feel like flats are a bit too laid back, and certain ankle boots look too overwhelming. This is also probably because I am tall and most maxi dresses are not quite long enough for me, so I can’t wear anything with a heel. The dress I am wearing today is a bit shorter than I prefer, but works perfectly with boots when tied in a side knot. I was also thrilled when I finally found the right pair of boots to wear with it!
I am also rocking some of my new favorite jewelry today. The day before my birthday I received the most gorgeous jewelry from Simply Chic Jewelry. This happened to be perfect timing because each ring and necklace has a gorgeous piece of opal on it, which is my birthstone. Be prepared to see me wearing these rings all the time around here! As I’ve gotten older, I find myself gravitating toward delicate and personalized pieces versus statement pieces, and these fit the bill. Paired with some of my other accessory essentials, they make the perfect layering pieces.
