Wardrobe hack: how to get two looks out of one dress

After our maxi dress round up earlier this month, maxis are on the brain! This fun, floral number from Macy's is no exception. My favorite thing about a good Summer maxi look is it can be dressed up or dressed down, depending on which way you're headed that day! It's like getting two great outfits for the price of one. And you KNOW how I love a good deal! My other favorite thing about a maxi is, like a jumpsuit, you can just throw it on and go.

This purple floral maxi dress is girly and functional!  It's comfortable, but with that feminine prettiness I can never resist.

I feel like mixing prints is a little nerve wracking at first but the more I do it, the more daring I get.  If you're just dipping your toes into the world of pattern mixing stripes and florals are usually a winning combo!

I love these Kate Spade sandals for a fun, girly touch. Just a warning, don't pack these if you're planning on hiking haha. They're more of a 10 minute casual stroll shoe than a walk around all day without blisters shoe.

What more can I say about this bag than I have already said? I honestly have worn it to death, and you know the best part? You can't even tell! After all the wear and tear, it still looks perfectly brand new and doesn't pick up hardly any dirt along the way. It's great because it's big enough to fit necessities for all my girlfriends on the go, but not super bulky.  I also love that it comes with a cross body strap for the days you need all hands on deck!

Don't you just love the look of a nice, clean denim jacket paired with a girly dress? This jacket is SUPER comfy and stretchy.  And doesn't have a lot of the bulk some denim jackets carry.  It's also super versatile!  You can pair it with a dress for a more flirty look.  Or pair it with pants for a fun night out!  And the great price point makes it a staple for any wardrobe.
