Styling a Maxi Dress


Today I've teamed up with some of my blogger friends to share
how to style maxi dresses for work

This mint, gray and white maxi is from Charming Charlie and was purchased last summer. I love the color and solid/stripe contrast. Mint is one of my favorite summer colors! This dress is so flattering and modest enough to wear to work, family parties, date night, church, etc! I would add a white cardigan or a jean jacket to this dress on chilly days or if sleeves are required for your work environment. I'm loving Charming Charlie's maxi dress collection this year- check it out here (they have several cute mint options!).

My mint wedges are also from Charming Charlie! I love how perfectly they match the dress. The wedge is low, so they are pretty comfy. Charming Charlie has these wedges in a few colors in stores, but only the dark blue color online. I really like these mint wedges at DSW too (on sale for $39.95). 

Charming Charlie has gorgeous summer statement necklaces! My mint necklace was also purchased last summer, but they have a great selection this year, too! I really like their Kaya Cluster Necklace Set (earrings and necklace) for $15. 
If you read my blog regularly, you know I'm a big fan of Trading Hope jewelry! I'm excited to share my new brass bracelet with you all. It's on sale for $8.40!! This gorgeous bangle has small sea shell bits in it (so fun for summer!). I love supporting companies with a mission. Trading Hope provides women around the world with fair trade opportunities. Most of their jewelry is hand crafted by women in India!

  9. This is by far my most favorite outfit you have worn. I have to check out the other ladies, also. That maxi is gorgeous and I love that you went matchy-matchy with the other mint accessories. Believe it or not I have never been to a Charming Charlie. I need to go. Also, the python clutch makes for a flawless mixed of patterns with the stripey skirt.

    Do stop by today and linkup with me too, pretty lady. A brand-new Thursday Moda linkup is currently up. Thanks and Happy Memorial Day Weekend! Ada. =)
