My Current Go To Outfit

 

fullsizeoutput_2577Hello readers! Long time, no chat!

I wanted to share with you one of my favorite go-to outfits lately when I have felt like just throwing something together and heading out the door. For me, a simple T-shirt and skirt can be so comfy but also cute when you throw on some accessories like a denim jacket and a hairpiece.

Can I just have a minute to talk about how much I have been LOVING bandanas the last few months? They are seriously so versatile! I love throwing my unruly curly hair into one, or using one to jazz up a handbag. If you are interested, Carly the Prepster did a great video about how to fold scarfs and bandana on her YouTube channel.

My love for the knotted T-shirt has been pretty well documented on this blog, and I love that Madewell is now selling T-shirts that have tails in the front that are meant to be knotted! It creates the perfect fitted look without adding too much bulk. What have been some of your go-to outfits lately?

To the Max

Stevenson Bridge Bow Ho-8I love wearing maxi dresses in the summer. There’s something about wearing such a long dress that just makes me feel in control. When wearing one, you are destined to turn heads and make a statement. I like to wear such long dresses with cropped sweaters or jackets, such as this jean jacket from American Eagle. Keeping your hair up and out of the way is a great option because it’s less fussy and allows the focus to be on your fabulous dress. I find that wedges or cute sandals offer great ways to complete maxi dress outfits. How do you like to wear maxi dresses?
