Belt It Out

Happy Monday!
I hope everyone had a great weekend.
We got most of our kitchen painted and new light fixtures hung.
I think this will be the last painting project for a while!
Yea, that's right I am wearing the stripe maxi again. 
 I told ya'll that I had a belt I wanted to try with it.
I definitely like the belted look better than without.
I added brown wedges and gold jewelry for a completely different look.
A couple of you mentioned the pockets on the maxi. 
 Yep, that's one of my favorite features as well.

My question to you is how else do you think I could style this colorful maxi?

maxi dress-TJ Maxx
wedges-Target
belt-Francesca's
necklace-F21
random bracelets

Ohhh I definitely like it belted and with wedges! You could try it with a long cardigan and flats (again) or maybe knot the bottom of the skirt up?

The belt really adds and is so flattering. I think you added a lot with the wedges as well...definitely better than without!

This maxi looks fantastic on you, so I can understand why you want to wear it again. Like you said, it looks fantastic with that belt! Kudos on painting your kitchen!

I love when an outfit makes its rounds again- we may be fashion bloggers but we still have our fave outfits! Still love this maxi, even more so with the belt! I love styling maxis as skirts, with a form fitted top or with a blazer for colder days.

Yes, I like this a lot with the belt and wedges!

I like those bright colors. That maxi looks great on you.

I like it better with the belt too. It looks great!

Deborah said...

Without the belt it looks like a great beach outfit. With the belt it's so much better.

I am loving maxi dresses this season. I swear I have bought about four of them!

Like the dress with the belt too. I would also try a bright statement necklace or print cardigan...but I'm wacky like that.

I'd wear that dress every day if I owned it!
