I don’t even know why I try fashion blogging anymore. Look at my sweet pup’s face and try and convince me that I shouldn’t just make this a dog blog all about Rascal! I would definitely need to change the name. Countdown to Treats? Countdown to Frisbee?
Rascal came with on my trip to the Czech Republic this past weekend to meet up with Nina of A World of Dresses, and she couldn’t resist getting a few snaps of him during our shoots. Even though he steals the show, I’ll try and get back to the issue at hand: this black pleated maxi dress.
You remember Amazon Prime Day? This maxi dress was one of the ones I ordered, and I knew it was going to be great for travelling, particularly for when I want to dress up for evenings. You can just toss it in your suitcase and when you bring it out hours (or days) later it still looks fresh.
This black maxi dress is so simple but has such great details: the sheer pleated overlay, the tie waist, and the racerback top. It definitely has that dressy edge to it even though it’s really comfy. And did I mention that the straps are adjustable? So you can reveal as much or as little as you want at the neckline.
What’s great about black maxis is that you can accessorize with absolutely anything and it will look good. I chose some orange tassel earrings (that are actually quite heavy for my little ears!), but some colorful bangles or a head scarf would also be perfect. I really should just stop buying maxis in any other color!
I am happy to help host this week’s Thursday Moda linkup with Ada of Elegance and Mommyhood! She is currently on vacation, so she asked me and two other bloggers (linked below) to host. Be sure to link up your recent fashion posts and check out some of the other great blogs!
