I am the first to admit it, in the past I have been an impulsive shopper. I thought something was cute, so I bought it. I never really thought much about how I would wear that piece or how to incorporate it into my wardrobe. I have learned my lesson! I spent weeks cleaning out my closet, reselling the pieces I didn’t use, and FINALLY I have a functional, organized wardrobe that makes sense. When I think about purchasing a new piece, I think about HOW I am going to wear it and if I can wear it multiple ways. That’s why I love this black maxi with cutouts. The options are endless!
I love this black maxi as a date night dress. I paired it with a gingham clutch, blue tassel earrings, and nude strappy sandals. This is the perfect look for date night! This dress is so comfortable too which isn’t always the case for a date night look!
This dress shows a little too much skin for my taste when I’m just running around with the kids or running errands. I know that isn’t the case for everyone, but I’m getting a little more conservative in my old age. I threw my favorite denim jacket over it to make it more casual. This jacket is so cute because of the puff sleeve. I love the feminine touch it adds and it’s on sale for $29! That price is crazy! I traded in my heels for sam edelman leopard wedges which are so comfortable. Now we have a great, casual, mom on the go outfit.
For the Beach
When I first saw this dress, it was my initial thought to get it for my beach trip in June. Since I spend 1 week, 2 max, at the beach each year, I like to find pieces that I can wear for “real life” too. This is the perfect dress to throw over your swimsuit or wear to dinner. I just love the simplicity of it. I added a straw hat, a pom pom beach bag, pink tassel earrings, and an espadrille. Now I am set for the beach!
