Black Maxi with Faux Leather and Lace up Sandals
When Kymberlee and I shot this black maxi look it was freezing… like the kind of bone chilling cold where your body feels numb and all you want to do is curl up in a million blankets and de-thaw with a cup of hot coffee. At least that’s what I did after I shot these lol.
I’m so ready for spring if you can’t tell! You will definitely notice this on the blog in the coming weeks, because my outfits are about to get a whole lot more spring inspired!
Anyways, on to the outfit… Luckily for me, there was a mix up with laundry last weekend (my mom thought this dress was mine so she grabbed it) so I came home with this adorable crochet trim maxi dress belonging to my sweet sista (sorry Whitney!) Feeling inspired by a look I saw on Instagram, I decided to pair it with my faux leather jacket for an edgier look. This is a great style tip to utilize to make your summery maxis more appropriate for fall/ winter, or to transition them into spring when it’s not quite warm enough to wear alone.
I decided to pair the black maxi with the new lace up sandals Geordie got me for my birthday ( I totally picked them out if you were wondering!) I highly recommend these sandals… they are comfy enough to wear all day (seriously I am a wimp when it comes to these things) and look equally cute with dresses or skinny jeans and a blouse. Also, lace up sandals will be super trendy (again) this spring!
In keeping with the bohemian theme (I almost think it look like something Stevie Nicks would wear!) I layered this gorgeous Kendra Scott pendant, slapped on a hat and my new Tory Burch cross-body and called it a day!
