NEW ADVENTURES

BUSY, FUN, AND EXCITING, IS HOW I'D DESCRIBE THE PAST FEW MONTHS. BUSY, BECAUSE PATRICK (MY HUSBAND) AND I BOUGHT AND HAVE GOTTEN SETTLED INTO OUR FIRST HOME, I'VE TAKEN ON MORE RESPONSIBILITY AT WORK, FRIENDS AND FAMILY HAVE BEEN IN AND OUT OF TOWN TO VISIT, AND I'VE BEEN WORKING TO LAUNCH THE BLOG. FUN, BECAUSE WHAT ISN'T FUN ABOUT DOING THINGS THAT MAKE YOU HAPPY. AND EXCITING, BECAUSE EVERYTHING GOING ON IS NEW AND UNKNOWN.

STARTING A BLOG HAS ALWAYS BEEN ON MY MIND, AND THE TIMING JUST FEELS RIGHT. I HAVE ENJOYED PLAYING AROUND WITH FASHION FOR WHAT FEELS LIKE FOREVER, AND I'M EXCITED TO SHARE THAT PASSION WITH YOU, SO HERE WE GO!

VICI BLACK MAXI DRESS -- SAM EDELMAN LACE-UP WEDGE -- BLACK BEADED STATEMENT NECKLACE -- GOLD WRAP BRACELET -- DY CITRINE CABLE BRACELET -- DY AMETHYST CABLE BRACELET -- HERMES H BRACELET 

SUMMER IS COMING, SO LET'S TALK ABOUT MY NEW GO-TO MAXI. I PURCHASED THIS MAXI A FEW WEEKS AGO, AND IT HAS QUICKLY BECOME ONE OF MY FAVORITES. IT IS A JERSEY MATERIAL, THAT IS A LITTLE MORE STRETCHY THAN NORMAL, SO COMFY IS AN UNDERSTATEMENT. THE VERSATILITY IS ALSO A HUGE PLUS. WHETHER I'M WEARING IT AS A BATHING SUIT COVER-UP, THROWING IT ON WITH SANDALS TO RUN A FEW ERRANDS, OR DRESSING IT UP FOR A DATE NIGHT LIKE I'VE SHOWN YOU ABOVE, THE DRESS WORKS FOR ANY OCCASION. FOR THE DATE NIGHT LOOK ABOVE, I WORE THE MAXI WITH A FUN PAIR OF LACE-UP WEDGES (WHICH ARE ON MAJOR MAJOR SALE RIGHT NOW, FIND THEM HERE). THE WEDGES ARE FUN, ALSO VERY VERSATILE, AND COME IN TWO OTHER COLOR OPTIONS. TO TOP OFF MY LOOK I LAYERED A FEW OF MY SIMPLE GO TO BRACELETS (WHICH YOU WILL SEE ME WEAR A LOT!),  WITH A LEATHER MULTI-STRAND BRACELET, AND A BEADED STATEMENT NECKLACE. THE STYLE OF THIS NECKLACE HAS RECENTLY BEEN POPULAR AMONGST MANY DESIGNERS, SO THERE ARE SOME GREAT OPTIONS IF BLACK JEWELRY ISN'T YOUR THING. 

OVERALL, THE SIMPLICITY AND EASE OF THIS MAXI ARE WHAT MAKE IT SO GREAT. THE OPTIONS ARE ENDLESS IN WHAT YOU CAN DO WITH IT, SO THE EFFORT IS MINIMAL. DON'T WE ALL LOVE THAT? THANKS A MILLION TIMES OVER FOR TUNING INTO MY FIRST POST. I HOPE EVERYONE HAS A GREAT WEEK LEADING UP TO THE LONG WEEKEND!
